Castle Rock Brewery

Castle Rock is a pub and brewing group which operates Nottingham’s largest full mash brewery. It has become firmly established as a favourite in local and national real beer drinking circles.

Using only the finest ingredients available to deliver the highest quality real ales, Castle Rock produce a range of six regular cask ales and a monthly guest beer in its ‘Natural Selection’ range, created in conjunction with the Wildlife Trusts.

Named “Pub Group of the Year” in 2002, 2006 and 2008, Castle Rock currently operate 20 pubs and have a policy of stocking cask beers from regional and micro breweries by swapping beer with similar companies.

One of Castle Rock's most notable and iconic pubs is the Canalhouse. Opened in 2000 on the lower floors of the former Canal Museum, the Canalhouse in Nottingham must be unique amongst public houses in that the adjacent canal extends INSIDE the building, complete with resident narrow boats.
In addition to the spacious bar areas, there is a covered and heated outdoor drinking terrace, plus comprehensive conference and function facilities for up to 200 people on the first floor.

The Canalhouse is a historical building situated by the canal side, in walking distance from the train station and bus station and only minutes from the city centre. The Canalhouse is one of Nottingham’s finest examples of canal architecture and has an internal canal basin going inside the venue with two narrow boats moored up inside. This truly unusual venue boasts not only the largest covered outdoor area in Nottingham but probably one of the largest continental beer ranges in Nottingham.
