Welcome to The Bell Inn, Nottingham's oldest Inn and winner of Greene King's National Pub Of The Year 2013.

Open Mic Night-02

Every Wednesday we have our Open Mic Night, we have a wide range of different genre’s playing great music. Our pub is extremely music orientated and enjoys showcasing some of the up and coming artists, such as Jake Bugg, Nottingham born and bred music artist who is now in the UK charts.


We have live jazz music on Monday nights and Sunday lunchtime’s that keeps everybody in high spirits. If your keen to listen closely then head on into the Snack Bar, however, if you just want some gentle jazz music in the background over dinner then you’ll find yourself in a great spot in either the Tudor or Lizzie bar.


We have a balanced variety of food on offer for all occasions and people. Whether its a quick snack mid-shopping spree or a full 3 course meal we have got something to suit you. We have our Head Chef on side to make sure everything is prepared to the highest standards and keep people saying ‘Mmm’. You can sit in the bar or join us in The Belfry, the restaurant upstairs, where you can sit and watch over Nottingham’s Market Square.

We have a mix of traditional pub food along with some of England’s favourite foreign food, and we are always trying new dishes to keep the taste buds tingling. We have offers available for all sorts of food and budgets along with our ‘Sharers’ that go down brilliantly whilst watching the football or having a bit of a reunion with friends.

We have a tempting range of puddings available like Chocolate Fudge Cake served with custard, ice cream or cream. We have some all time favourites like our Sticky Toffee Pudding that will start you off reminiscing whilst tasting flavours from the past, or if you want something a little less typical you could try our Sicilian Lemon Meringue Pie. What’s not to love?

Naturally, being an old pub we have a good selection or real draught ales available at all times, and we like to make sure we have some local ales in there to support our community. including one or two guest ales at any time. This year we had our annual celebratory ale for St Patricks Day. Exclusive to selected pubs in Nottingham.  Annie Coyle’s Ruby Coloured Ale. Created by Tom Flynn with The Bell Inn a tribute to Tom’s Granny, Annie Coyle.

If you’re hoping for something fresher we have a tailored range of lagers, ciders and wine that has been chosen to suit you. We select seasonal drinks to suit the time like mulled wine and mulled cider to keep people in the festive cheer.

For those who like something a little stronger, we have a great range of spirits that is constantly being updated to suit trends and new spirits in the market. We also have a fantastic range of Whiskeys, some as old as 14 years. We can whip up a cocktail or perhaps a pitcher if you know what your favourite drink is! In the warmer months we hold beer and cider festivals where you are simply spoilt for choice.
