Sneinton’s famous pub Peggers Inn, opens once again after more than ten vacant years under its new name, The Fox & Grapes!

With the people of Nottingham casting their vote to decide the name of the pub for its re-opening, The Fox & Grapes takes back its original name from the 1830s. There are various nods to the pub’s vast heritage, including the iconic “Peggers” pub sign suspended just above the bar.

The single-room pub also has an outdoor seating area on either side of the pub, perfect for enjoying the atmosphere of the local Sneinton Market and Creative Quarter events.

You can expect the usual diverse and high quality selection of cask, keg and craft beers that Castle Rock pubs are renowned for, plus a great range of spirits, wines, coffees and soft drinks.

The Fox’s food menu offers a unique and delicious take on simple dishes like hand-stretched pizza, jacket potatoes and fresh platters. It’s a particularly good spot for vegan and gluten free diners to enjoy a bite.


No.12 at Hounds Gate, opening 5 days a week, is an independent Vegetarian & Vegan cafe based in Nottingham City Centre. 

They pride themselves on creating beautifully fresh and innovative hand-crafted recipes, that expands so much further than a mushroom risotto or a nutloaf! 

The cafe relishes Nottingham’s brunch culture and on top of our signature smørrebrød, they’ll be serving top class coffee (Outpost Coffee), their own health kick sodas, smoothie shots, veggie and vegan cakes, pastries, granola popsicles and lots more. 

All their produce and ingredients comes from locally sourced suppliers.

Owners Ritchie and Lauren, have an interest for the important things in life, good food and drink, music, art and having a good old time! 

After playing around with their culinary skills for years now they are more than excited for what the future holds for No.12 at Hounds Gate.


Drinking Gin in Nottingham has just got a whole lot better, with the opening of the city centre’s first dedicated gin bar. With 130 different varieties, Gincident on Friar Lane is a gin lover’s dream.

Owners John and Max are big fans of gin, which was partly behind their motivation to open Gincident. There are a lot of different varieties that are on trend and up-market.

As well as a large number of gins from the UK we have gin from Canada, Slovenia, New Zealand, Belgium, Sweden, USA, Australia and many other countries.

The choice of fruity gins is extremely popular, with rhubarb being most people’s flavour of choice. We even have our very own exclusive range from Black Powder, with some very different flavours which are great when mixed with Prosecco.

But, if gin isn’t to your taste they have draught lager, wine, prosecco, champagne, vodka, rum, whiskey and soft drinks available.
