Another Night in Beeston

A few drinks around some of Beestons better pubs.

The White Lion was refitted in 2013 ( it used to be dreadful ) and I understand has undergone a lot of improvement. I have decided to give it a try.

From there we will go to the always good Crown at 9.00pm and follow this with the institution that is the Victoria Hotel at 10.30pm.

The Crown - Church St, Nottingham NG9 1FY. opposite the Police Station

The Victoria - 85 Dovecote La, Nottingham NG9 1JG, next to the Train Station.

The Lion is within easy walking distance of the main bus and train station. There is only a few minutes walking between all the pubs.

I will get the train in as the Vic is so handy for coming back via that method. I could be tempted to a late drink in town if anybody is up to it.

There are 3 folk/Jazz bands on at the Vic as part of their usually summer events. I am sure we will get to see at least 1

Splender is on in Wollaton park that day so please be aware that the buses might be a touch full or erratic.

    I'll probably get the bus there and see you in the Lion before 8pm. I may get the train back, do you know if I'm safe being able to buy a ticket from a machine at the station?

    The Star has also been newly refurbished and has huge number of beers on offer or so I have been told!

      That's interesting. If the Lion doesn't impress we might wonder there then. Again my last view of the Star circa 2010 was pretty poor.

      I am sorry but I won't be able to make it this time as I am going down south this weekend. hope you all have a great time and see you next time, hopefully. Do ask Sergio, at the White Lion, for his Tapas. there's usually a deal : 3 tapas for £5...can't go wrong with that! And if you are into wine..there's some gorgeous portuguese wine (I may be biased ;)

    The White Lion usually has a great service.
    They have very good (if I may so myself) Portuguese Beer and Wine :)
    They also do an amazing Brazilian Feijoada (Pork and black bean stew, served with an always welcome Caipirinha) on Sundays. Portuguese and Brazilian food are always available on request! Also do a very good deal on tapas. Maybe if you call them in advance they could have a drink and/or tapas deal available for us? (I can also make the call if you prefer). the owner's name is Sergio and their number is[masked] 40.
    Cheers,
    Sonia
    The Vic is always amazing but I specially like to go there for lunch (seems to be a food theme here!)

      The Tapas thing is a great idea. I am out of the country until the end of June but if you would like to contact them please be my guest. Might be best to wait until about a week or two in advance so we an have a rough idea of numbers. Don't make any promises though because not everybody turns up on the night so I don't want to disappoint them.
