The Ned Ludd in Nottingham is run by the Nottingham Brewery and is based near the city centre. It serves real ale, ciders and craft beers. The food is British cuisine and all locally sourced. The dishes on the menu are exciting, tasty and are reasonably priced too.
As it is near the city centre, it is a great place to start your night. It has a calm and relaxing atmosphere and you probably should start early to avoid standing up. Although, even on the busy weekends at night, it still has a none rowdy atmosphere, just happy and lively people.
The upstairs can be hired out for functions and parties and is a good size that can hold 30-40 people. On a normal day, the upstairs is a dining room serving delicious hot food with your specially selected beverage.
