The Vat and Fiddle is Castle Rock Brewery’s beloved brewery tap.
Thirteen cask beers greet you on entering the Vat, showcasing the largest available range of Castle Rock beers. They are joined by guest beers from local and national breweries, and an award-winning assortment of ciders. You’ll also find a great selection of beers in keg, bottle and can, alongside a full menu of wines, spirits and soft drinks.
This 1930s art deco-style building sits beneath the iconic blue tower of Castle Rock Brewery. It is comprised of multiple cosy areas with the adjoining Golding’s Room and Visitors’ Centre.
To the rear of the pub, a large beer garden spills into the brewery yard. It’s the perfect spot to catch some afternoon rays and enjoy the freshest possible pint.
Between the Vat and the brewery is the Old Cold Store, an industrial event space with a private bar.
Please note: there is no on-site parking at this pub however it has excellent links to public transport (and is only a short walk from the Nottingham Train Station).
