The Olde Trip To Jerusalum
One of the best known pubs in Nottingham is Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalum, generally regarded as the oldest pub in England.
Established in the 12th Century, the inner walls of the Trip ( as its known ) are carved out of the sandstone under the csatle. It also serves anything from the traditional fine ales in a pub to good ' pub grub ' and is a experience like nothing else !
This is Nottingham's traditional theatre. Whereas the more modern Nottingham Playhouse features contemporary theatre and modern dance, the grand old Theatre Royal has opera, Gilbert & Sullivan, christmas pantomime etc.
Opera North perform here every season.

YE OLDE TRIP TO JERUSALEM PUB

Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem
Old Cliffie is always amused when he sees those signs in the States proclaiming the venerable age of some shop or restaurant: Established 1957, Since 1976, etc. They ought to come to Nottingham and take a look at Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem. England's oldest pub has been dispensing ale and beer in the same place since 1189. The food is pretty average pub grub, but they serve an excellent Jerusalem bitter - and nothing beats supping a good pint on a warm summer day and knowing that people have been doing the same thing in the same location for more than 800 years.
