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 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 small artisan breweries, with a focus on natural European styles, although you’ll find one of the broadest selections in Nottingham’s city centre. You can take your pick from three fridges of bottles and cans, 10 draught keg lines, and two rotating cask hand-pull featuring Castle Rock’s latest releases as well as a small selection of other local small batch brews. If you’re visiting for the vine, we’ve devised an exquisite wine list featuring over 75 wines from all over the world including increasingly popular natural wines. 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. There’s also a large TV displaying train departure times for those looking to await their transportation in comfort. 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!

New, and here to stay as a regular event, the Barley Twist and Delilah’s bring you the Culture Club. Like the Breakfast Club but instead of an oddly matched conglomeration of high school kids, you’ll have the chance to sample four artisan cheeses, perfectly paired with four artisan beers.
Delilah’s curate the cheese and bring the expertise in that area, Barley Twist source the beer to complement it.
