Bread and Bitter

Housed in a former bakery and nestled away on Mapperley Top, the Bread has been serving the local community as a Castle Rock pub since 2007.

This unique building is comprised of several sections, with a traditional bar area, a light and airy conservatory, a dining area alongside the former baker’s ovens, and a small seating area.

Both the drinks and food menus are carefully curated to cater to different needs and tastes, with an emphasis on vegan dining and a popular Sunday Roast. The Bread has four craft keg lines, an exciting menu of spirits and wines, and a reputation for beautifully kept cask beer.
