Notties Pub is affectionately known to locals and many past travelers and is renowned for its festive atmosphere, fine fare and warm hospitality and has really stood the test of time with the original wooden pub. Everyone knows the Notties Pub! Even people who have not yet been clever enough to venture up or down hill to Nottingham Road have heard, via some grapevine, of the legendary Notties Pub.

Local sons and daughters, like their parents and grandparents before them, spend many a pleasant night in Notties pub, entering into the same old high spirits! Friday nights at Notties are legendary - there’s hardly weekend that goes past without some kind of fun going on there! Saturday Rugby fever sees the pub packed - with free breakfast rolls and the odd draught beer on the house to be enjoyed as people help their heroes win the game.
