HOST WITH THE MOST😍
Sep 2020 • Friends
THE BEST HOST OF NOTTINGHAM
The shots are amazing and I would recommend the party bus always great larger selection, the staff are so friendly he's working so hard being an independent landlord and with all the restrictions he's trying so hard to make the place safe. I always have a great time in the runner.

A great love music venue and local
Oct 2019 • Solo
The running horse is a brilliant live music venue with a local pub feel, just a stones throw from the centre of town. The landlord Rob is very friendly and accomodating and the bar staff are always friendly and helpful. Live music can be found every weekend and there is no cost for entry. This place is clearly a labour of love and it shows in atmosphere. There is a great selection of harder to find draught beer and cider and well kept real ale. A must if visiting Nottingham or for locals who don't head up to the canning circus area that often.

Fabulous vibes

Great down to earth vibe, and positive atmosphere. Inclusive, not cliquey. The staff are chilled, not in your face and make it an relaxed and happy time there.

Love this bar!

This is a great bar to start a night out in Nottingham. I tend to start here and work my way down towards town with a group of mates. Cheap drinks, cool music. Would recommend.

Fantastic atmosphere and great prices!!
Sep 2019
With live music, cheap drinks and a great vibe The Running Horse has quickly become one of my favourite bars in town. It been renovated to a high standard to give a warm atmosphere with hushed lighting and relaxed music which is great for chilled out nights with friends. This is quite different on live music nights with bands from all over the country (and sometimes overseas) performing intimate gigs not to be missed. Also there is a "RunningHorse" App which can be downloaded that keeps you up to date on all these events too.

They have a wide range of drinks at very reasonable prices, not to mention happy hour from 5pm (try the Polish shots!!). A hidden garden at the back has proven to be very popular over the summer. Rob the owner has done an amazing job renovating the place and makes everyone feel very welcome. A must visit if you are in the area.

A hidden gem which now attracts a good crowd after many years of neglect. Can see listings of forthcoming live music by downloading the App.

Enjoyable pub
May 2019 • Solo
I planned to go on a pub crawl round the interesting pubs of Canning Circus, but the Running Horse was the first I visited, and I enjoyed myself so much there I stayed the whole evening. The landlord, Dave, was a chatty and enthusiastic guy, proud of his drinks. He only does a couple of casks, but I sampled his whole range of lagers, including Oranjeboom, Hurlimann, Whitstable Bay Premium, etc. Lovely all. I finished with a couple of pints of the Whitstable Bay Stout, a Shepherd Neame tap I always enjoy. Dave and his locals were up for chats about various aspects of Nottingham, Watson Fothergill the architect, and lots more. It was an open mic night, and though I mainly stayed in the bar next to where the performers were, this made for a great atmosphere and brought in a lot of colourful characters, including a guy who writes poems and a comical lady who was thinking of standing for the Green Party. So I really enjoyed the sociability of this pub. I also love its listed frontage, covered in cool vintage glazed-tile work.
