The pub building dates back to the late 19th century, though an even older pub – known as the Black’s Head Inn – once stood on this very same site. The Grosvenor has several horse-racing connections: not only was is near the old Forest Racecourse and most likely named after the 1st Duke of Westminster, Hugh Grosvenor, who was Master of the Horse (the senior officer responsible for the British monarch’s horses) and a well-known breeder, but the pub’s former landlord was the father of the 1899 Grand National winning jockey, George Williamson.
Though it has long been a community establishment, it is only in recent years that the pub has truly come into its own with a 2015 refurbishment helping to take it to the next level. Old and modern elements meld in the attractive interior, with period fireplaces and old prints of Nottingham referencing the area’s heritage and complementing more modern furnishings. In warm weather, the action moves from the interior out to the pub’s much-loved beer terrace, where open-air events are often held in summer.
A Big and Bright Function Room with Its Own Bar
Set on the pub’s upper floor, the Grosvenor’s function room is a large, bright and flexible space that can be adapted to suit all kinds of events. For big football matches, there is a projector and screen that can be used to show live sport while for parties, organisers can use their iPod or iPhone to have their very own music playlist piped through the whole space. There is also a dance floor should your guests feel like throwing some shapes (highly likely after a few drinks) and a dedicated bar so guests needn’t traipse downstairs just to get in a round. The Grosvenor’s function space can accommodate 50 people seated and up to 100 standing, making it a suitable choice for larger events such as bigger work parties, landmark birthdays or anniversary celebrations.
Sample Local Cask Ales and Pub Classics
The Grosvenor serves up pub classics as well as food-friendly wines, draught beers and locally brewed cask ales, including their own proprietary pour brewed by Nottingham’s own Navigation Brewery. The pub is located in the Nottingham suburb of Carrington, which is less than 10 minutes’ drive north of the city and stands on land that was once part of the fabled ancient Sherwood Forest. Designated drivers can leave their vehicles in the pub car park. Guests can also come by bus from Nottingham and if they need to stay overnight, they can book a room in one of several nearby hotels, all within easy walking distance of the Grosvenor.
