The Vat and Fiddle is our brewery tap, connected to the brewery itself by the Old Cold Store and our brewery yard. It offers various spaces available to hire and the option to be as creative as you like.
The Old Cold Store gets its name from its former line of service to the brewery – a large storage area for keeping beer cold! Thanks to expansion, the Old Cold Store is now an industrial and minimalist function facility available for private hire. It is ideally located just a short stroll from Nottingham station.
Essentially a supersized blank canvas, the Old Cold Store has a reputation for live music events thanks to its work with Revolution Sounds (formally of the Maze) and Rat Cat. Complete with a private, full-sized bar, this huge area can be organised to your liking and is suitable for a range of events including wedding receptions and corporate meetings.
The Castle Rock Team Party is held here every year, and the space is put to good use for Castle Rock’s annual Yard Party.
Dining and buffet packages available
The Visitors’ Centre
The Visitors’ Centre is an intimate function room, located off the Golding’s Room at the Vat and Fiddle. Decked in Castle Rock Brewery memorabilia, the room also has a small private bar with cask lines. It’s a great space for meetings with a twist, or small parties with fellow beer lovers. Double doors open to the front seating area of the Vat, so guests can spill outside to enjoy warmer days.
The Golding’s Room
The Golding’s Room is spacious and airy while maintaining a classic and comfortable pub feel. French doors and windows ensure it is bright and roomy during the day and ambient lighting keeps it cosy in the evenings.
The adjoining Visitors’ Centre provides an opportunity to extend your event to incorporate a separate area for a buffet or coffees.
