Welcome to The Herbert Kilpin

10, Bridlesmith Walk Nottingham NG1 2HB

A beautiful and iconic old building in the heart of Nottingham’s city centre, unloved for over twenty years, The Herbert Kilpin is enjoying a new and and exciting lease of life as an independent free house. The Herbert Kilpin shares a hidden back yard beer garden with is neighbouring ‘brother’ Junkyard. The offering, however, is completely different.

The Herbert Kilpin delivers something that contrasts as well as complements Junkyard. Nottingham is blessed with many old and historic pubs but we always felt that there was a need for an urban and contemporary pub in Nottingham’s city centre. We like to to think of The Herbert Kilpin/Junkyard as an urban version of two village pubs which share a common village green – people can mingle yet choose where they get their drinks and food from.

Where does the name come from The Herbert Kilpin name recognises the life of one of Nottingham’s largely undiscovered heroes. During the build process we were blown away when we heard the story about Nottingham-born Herbert Kilpin – it felt like fate. We had to celebrate Herbert’s life, his adventure and his pioneer spirit by naming the pub after him. It’s an amazing fit, we invite everyone to take the time to learn more about one of the city’s quiet greats.
