Bread and Bitter
Traditional multi-room pub and real ale haven in Mapperley TopFOOD MENU Vegan Menu Gluten Free Menu Sunday MENU
The Bread & Bitter was officially opened by Barrie Judge on December 5th 2007. Back in 1991, Mr Judge shut his bakery on the same site. Now fully restored sixteen years later as a pub, his bakery ovens remain built into the wall in the central area of the pub, along with a “Brewers Graveyard”, full of artefacts from closed down breweries of yesteryear.
The unique stained glass bar area features eleven real ales plus a wide range of world beers on tap. There’s also four dedicated craft keg lines, where you’ll find Beavertown’s Gamma Ray and Neck Oil in permanent residence, plus two guest lines to keep things interesting. Alongside this, a craft beer fridge of over 40 craft cans and bottles is kept in good stock. The pub comprises of several sections, including the traditional bar area and a large conservatory, perfect for drinking or dining. Dogs are welcome at the Bread & Bitter, providing they are well behaved!
The pub also boasts a varied food and wine menu including their ever popular table service for Sunday lunch. We are more than happy to reduce portion sizes so children are very welcome.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Bread very soon.
