The Lion at Basford
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Located in the shadows of the magnificent Shipstone’s Brewery, The Lion at Basford has an enviable reputation for cask ales, live music and great food. The pub’s rustic charm and alehouse ambience have made it popular with both locals and travelling customers.
Food at The Lion comprises an American-style burger-led offering with plenty of quirky options such as the El Mariachi, the pub’s signature 6oz beef patty topped-off with Mexican beef chilli, sour cream, guacamole and melted Cheddar. A loyal supporter of CAMRA for more than ten years, the bar offers a members’ discount on all 11 cask ales available at any time, including options from local breweries such as Blue Monkey and Castle Rock. The craft beer range includes a selection of more than 40 international bottles, alongside a range of at least ten ciders. The beer cellars are formed from one of Nottingham’s natural caves, among the deepest in the city.
The Sunday lunchtime jazz sessions are legendary, while various bands play on Friday and Saturday nights. Keep updated via the website or their Facebook page.
