The Herbert Kilpin

A beautiful and iconic old building in the heart of the city centre specialising in craft beer, great food and European football...

The building was closed and unloved for two decades, but the Herbert Kilpin is now enjoying a new lease of life as an independent free house.

It shares a hidden backyard beer garden with neighbouring bar Junkyard. The offering, however, is completely different. It’s bright and airy, with TVs showing Serie A games, and they put on regular events.

Oh, and the name? It comes from the AC Milan founder, who was born in Nottingham but also forgotten in his home town for many years.
