Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, Nottingham

About

After a visit to Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem you'll soon understand why this pub has survived the centuries to become a treasure of Nottingham past and present. 

As England's oldest inn, the pub is nestled beneath the cliff on which Nottingham's historic castle stands, and was once a well-known pit stop for crusader knights. It is said that King Richard the Lionheart and his men are more than likely to have gathered at this historic royal dwelling before journeying to Jerusalem in 1189AD, thus giving the pub its unusual name.

Something of a cross between an inn and a museum,​​​​​ the pub features several bars, cosy nooks and snug lounges filled with curiosities and relics of Nottingham's history. You can enjoy a delicious pub meal everyday between 11am and 10pm in the Rock Bar, where you can warm up next to the fire in Yorkie's Lounge, or enjoy the expansive garden area when the weather is pleasant.

Beneath the pub, cave cellars root deep into the sandstone cliff and, like many of Nottingham's 800+ caves, have for centuries been used for storage of ale. Also located in the cellars is an old cockfighting pit and part of the Castle Gaol was said to be housed in the cellars at one time. This included the condemned cell, a small cell with a very low ceiling with small holes drilled to allow a little air to flow through. The Gaoler would have sat just outside the cells on the ‘Gaoler’s Chair’ which was etched out of the rock and can still be seen today.


Whether you are simply after a refreshment while you drink in the history of Nottingham, or are looking to sample some choicest fayre as you contemplate the wealth of heritage around you, you will find a cosy nook, lounge or bar room at The Trip to suit your needs. So come along, take a step back in time and soak up this piece of England’s colourful, and sometimes bloody, past!

Cellar tours are available and will give you all the details you crave if you are keen on history, or ale! At times you may need to book in advance, especially in peak season, but ask at the bar and the staff will accomodate you if they can. You will see the speaking tube that was bored through to the castle for ordering beer and the cock pit, the extensive amount of barrels and much more but most importantly you will be able to pour your own pint! To book call 0115 947 3171.
