Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem ..
The oldest inn in England? ..
One of the many pubs in England that claims to be the oldest in the country. This is a must visit venue when visiting Nottingham and can be combined with a visit to the castle and Robin Hoods statue nearby.
Cellar tours are available but you may need to book in advance. You will see the speaking tube that was bored through to the castle for ordering beer.
On our visit we were lucky to bump into Robin Hood.
Robin Hood was a heroic outlaw in English folklore. A highly skilled archer and swordsman, he is known for "robbing from the rich and giving to the poor", assisted by a group of fellow outlaws known as his "Merry Men". Traditionally, Robin Hood and his men are depicted wearing Lincoln green clothes. The origin of the legend is claimed by some to have stemmed from actual outlaws, or from ballads or tales of outlaws.
The pub was originally called the Pilgrim . It is said that knights would stop to have a drink in the pub before they set off to Jerusalem in the 12th century.
Good quality food is served at reasonable prices 11am to 10pm daily. There is a £6.95 meal deal Mon-Fri 12-5pm
