The Canalhouse

Undoubtedly one of the most unique venues in Nottingham, this place is famous for having a canal that extends into the building...

The nautical look is completed with resident narrow boats and a beautiful, south-facing beer garden overlooking the canal.

For many years, this place has been renowned for its craft and world-beer offering, with over 250 beers from around the world, plus six real ales and up to ten craft beers in keg. There’s more beer choice than you can get through, even if you drink in there every night for a month.

Look out for their annual charity music event, The Waterfront Festival, curated by I’m Not From London. It’s an institution in the city, raising thousands for local charities.
