The Hand and Heart

65-67 Derby Road, NOTTINGHAM, NG1 5BA

This Georgian building was a brewery before becoming a pub in Victorian times. Beer was brewed in the converted stables and stored in the sandstone cave below, which is now an atmospheric restaurant. Famous for its excellent selection of real ales, The Hand and Heart holds two beer festivals a year, spring and autumn, and in the bar you can sample Round Heart from the Dancing Duck Brewery as well as the Maypole Brewery's Little Weed, and six changing guest ales. The tempting menu choices could include slow-braised oxtail on the bone, root veg stew, Stilton mash and parsnip crisps; herb puff pastry topped steak, smoked bacon and local ale pie; and lemon battered fish and chips with minted peas.
