Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem
Lonely Planet review for Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem
Wedged into the cliff below the castle, this fantastically atmospheric alehouse claims to be England's oldest pub. Founded in 1189, it supposedly slaked the thirst of departing crusaders and its low-ceiling rooms and cobbled courtyards are still the most ambient place in Nottingham for a pint. Informal tours (per person £2.50) of its ancient cellars can be arranged by booking at least two weeks ahead.
