A collage of various drinking places in nottingham city centre

The Ultimate List of Outdoor Drinking Spaces in Nottingham City Centre.

Team member, Rachel Green

Rachel

We did it! We made it through a year of abnormality and the end is in sight.

On the 12th of April 2021, Boris declared the boozers ‘open’ – but only those with outdoor seating.

Therefore the team at Framework Design have done their research and compiled the ultimate list of places you can grab a pint with 5 other people (from max 2 households) in Nottingham city centre. We have done all the hard work you have to do.  Check out the list below and get those tables booked! How many will you tick off between now and May 17th?

Remember, don’t forget your mask and you will need to use the NHS COVID-19 app to check-in at each venue.

And if you see any of your favourite pubs and bars missing from the list or any incorrect information, please let us know via digital.marketing@weareframework.co.uk
