The Bell Inn, Nottingham

The Bell Inn dates back to the early 14th century and is one of Nottingham’s most famous and historic family friendly pubs. For those who are curious, names of previous landlords can be seen listed below ceiling level in the main back bar.

Based in Nottingham's Market Square Conservation Area, the Bell Inn is ideally located close to local city attractions. Within five minutes drive from the pub visitors can see Nottingham Castle and The Robin Hood Museum with the National Justice Museum just slightly further afield. If you’re visiting the city as a young family, be sure to check out the nearby Green’s Windmill and Science Centre and the City of Caves attractions too.

Tip: As a busy country pub situated in the city centre and just a few minutes walk from Nottingham Trent University, it’s often a good idea to book with us before you visit.

Your dog is our guest

Dogs are most welcome at The Bell Inn! Bring them inside or let them roam around outdoors in our beer garden if you prefer to dine al fresco style.

Come for the IPAs and stay for the incredible grub

We’ve IPA craft beers on tap and plenty of other cold beverages to choose from at the Bell Inn, while you enjoy our free Wi-Fi and TNT Sports. Why not make an afternoon of it by making the most of our delicious menu?

As an accommodating pub for all we cater to vegetarian, vegan and non-gluten diets also.
