The Barley Twist is a craft beer bar and wine cellar on Nottingham’s Broadmarsh Gateway, in close proximity to Nottingham Railway Station
The Barley Twist is a two-floor new craft beer and wine cellar, housed in a former sweetshop on Nottingham’s Carrington Street.
The beer range at the Barley Twist is all about celebrating local and national breweries, with a focus on the best craft beers from around Britain. You can take your pick from three fridges of bottles and cans, a 10-line keg wall, and a rotating cask hand-pull featuring Castle Rock’s latest beer. If you’re visiting for the vine, we’ve devised an exquisite wine list featuring over 75 wines from all over the world. You will also find premium spirits, soft drinks, locally roasted coffee and a range of speciality teas on the menu.
As well as being a great stop-off for a drink, the full range of Castle Rock merchandise is available to buy at the Barley Twist, from gin-flavoured sticks of rock to embroidered t-shirts. Cans and bottles are also discounted by 30% if you’d like to take some away.
On the ground floor of the Barley Twist, you’ll find a one-room bar featuring original brick work walls, high ceilings, and booth and table seating. Head down the new staircase to a large cellar, stripped back to black and red brick with moody, atmospheric lighting. A perfect hideout from the bustle of Carrington Street.
The building itself (Portland Hotel) was a temperance house, built by the Hicking family who were wine merchants by trade. Restored as part of the Carrington Street Heritage Scheme, Castle Rock has worked to uncover and restore the site’s Edwardian features, including returning the shop front to its original layout. Subtler evidence of the building’s heritage can be found around the Barley Twist, like iron hooks hanging from the walls and an old fireplace in the cellar.
Whether you’re after a cosy night drinking good wine or the perfect beer to get you through an arduous train journey, the Barley Twist is ready to be of service!
