Crafty Crow

Nestled into the cobbled streets surrounding Nottingham Castle, the Crafty Crow is Magpie Brewery’s own scenic taproom...

The Crafty Crow is a large space that blends classic interior design with modern features; here, you’ll find old leather armchairs under exposed hanging light bulbs. Like Magpie Brewery itself, the Crafty Crow are very environmentally conscious and all of their food is from independent, local sources and farmers in order to reduce their carbon footprint.

As well as serving up ten cask ales, there are also many craft keg taps that are placed in the centre of the bar and emerge out of a retired Grundy conditioning tank.
