Traditional ale back by popular demand in West Bridgford and Nottingham pubs

A traditional cask ale that is synonymous to one of the oldest pubs in Nottingham is now available at a selection of city-centre pubs.


The Olde Trip cask ale has been the preferred tipple for thousands of customers visiting one of Nottingham’s oldest pubs – Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem.

The traditional English ale has a malty flavour with toffee notes which come from additional brewing sugars.

The drink takes its name from the pilgrims and crusaders that would stop at the inn on their journey to Jerusalem back in the seventeen-hundreds.

Karl Gibson, general manager of Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, comments: “We had to temporarily pause production of The Olde Trip during lockdown, but I’m absolutely delighted that it’s not only back in our treasure of a pub, but our neighbours in the city too.

“The ale is a fabric of our pub and customers from all over the world have come to the pub to try a pint of the famous drink. I can’t wait to start serving it again.”


The Olde Trip ale is now available in two city centre pubs – Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem and the Bell Inn, as well as the Test Match Hotel in West Bridgford.
