Castle Rock Brewery has acquired the freehold of the Cricketers Rest in Kimberley. The workmen and women are there and it’ll reopen as our 22nd pub in August.

The pub has been bought through The Beer Consortium Ltd, the EIS company that bought Bingham’s Horse and Plough and The Embankment at Trent Bridge in Nottingham in 2015.  In common with the Cricketers Rest, these pubs are operated and managed by Castle Rock.

Our chairman Geoff Newton says: “Kimberley has a long historical association with the brewing industry and the Cricketers Rest is a great community pub close to the former Hardys & Hansons brewery.

“We’re planning a major refurbishment and look forward to serving the needs of this bustling Nottinghamshire town.

“The Cricketers will bring great cask ales from Castle Rock, national and local brewers and the refurbishment will extend to the impressive rear garden making it an ideal family-orientated and dog friendly venue. We expect the site to be open for business towards the end of August,” he says.
