Hi dog pals,
So Hum and I went to eat at Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem @ ‘cos Karl the landlord impressed Hum most on the phone of all the dog friendly venues and it wasn’t too far from the Britannia Hotel Nottingham where we was staying.
Given the weather that was excellent even though Hum made me wear my raincoat and you know how I hate it.
Reputed to be the oldest pub in England, Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem is said to have been built in 1189 and is shrouded in history. The building is partly carved out of the rock on which Nottingham Castle stands.
The cellars in Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem hold a wealth of history, along with some haunted tales and a LOT of beer. The caves are extensive and can lead you a long way underground, far into Nottingham City Centre. The cellars also house the old cock fighting pit and a route up into Nottingham Castle. The Cellars were the main part of the Inn at one time, though with such a high demand from visitors, the pub had to grow and uses the caves as the cellars now.
So far so impressive and as a dog friendly venue it stood up to our tests very well! Even as Hum was photographing outside, the staff were friendly and delighted I was included in the photo! And it didn’t stop there. They were lovely inside as well. You had to grab a table as it came free (you can have dogs in the lower level and it does get busy on Saturday nights) but Hum got a table right by the bar so I didn’t have my separation anxiety when she went to order and the food was FAB!!!!! I mean totally FAB!!!!
A bowl of water came instantly for me and good old Hum ordered the beef rib on a long bone so I not only had the sensational beef – just melting! BUT I enjoyed getting a new bone!!! How cool was that!! Well I thought it was just amazingly brilliant so Thanks Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem!
Well what a fab place and lots of people made a fuss of me and the food was out of this world – great to get to grips with the bone back at the hotel! So I highly recommend Ye Olde Trip to all you lovely dog friends and I think your humans will love the quirkiness of the place and the fact it is historical too! Good place to visit to soak up culture; history and eat good food 🙂 Get there when you can!!!
