Crafty Crow

Nestled into the cobbled streets surrounding Nottingham Castle, the Crafty Crow is Magpie Brewery’s own scenic taproom...

The Crafty Crow is a large space that blends classic interior design with modern features; here, you’ll find old leather armchairs under exposed hanging light bulbs. Like Magpie Brewery itself, the Crafty Crow are very environmentally conscious and all of their food is from independent, local sources and farmers in order to reduce their carbon footprint.

As well as serving up ten cask ales, they have an impressive 10 craft keg taps that emerge from the centre of a retired Grundy conditioning tank .
