Bread and Bitter

Up in Mapperley Top, but well worth the trip out, Bread and Bitter is a fantastic, traditional cosy pub that serves great food and craft beer...

Like any Castle Rock owned pub, the drinks selection is extensive with rotating cask ales and craft kegs, as well as the staple Castle Rock ales. However, Bread and Bitter also has a fridge stocked with over 40 World beers, all of them craft.

The food at Bread and Bitter is also well renowned; with a whole separate vegan menu and a gluten free menu, they accommodate for any dietary requirements. They also do a cracking Sunday roast, too.

  • Bread Talks with Bob Massey at The Bread And Bitter

    Today 20:00 - 21:00

    Once upon a time, on a cold Christmas night, a walking encyclopaedia was born and his name was Bob Massey. He grew up to be a very clever historian indeed and watched many a Christmas pass from his dwelling in Mapperley.*

    Join him at the Bread and Bitter for the latest BREAD Talks to hear about Mapperley at Christmas in the years gone by. Free, fun and informative!

    *This, unlike the real BREAD Talks, may not be factually accurate.
