About us

Opened by Castle Rock in 2004, it was Nottingham’s first ‘no smoking’ pub. Since opening, The Kean’s Head has established itself as one of Nottingham’s finest hidden gems. A small, cosy and inviting one room pub, it offers its customers a choice of six traditional cask conditioned ales, two traditional ciders, eight draught keg products that include lager, cider, stout and fruit beer, and a dedicated craft keg wall featuring ten lines. It also prides itself on having one of the East Midlands most impressive world bottled beer ranges along with an extensive variety of 100+ bottles and cans, 60+ whiskys, 20+ rums and 50+ gins. The Kean’s Head now also offers a “break-even” keg once a month, featuring something rare and wonderful. For those who prefer the grape to the grain, there is also a carefully selected choice of global wine.

For food, there is something to please all. With an emphasis on classic dishes, prepared to the highest quality, with the freshest local ingredients, the ‘home-cooked’ fayre at the Kean’s Head, never fails to satisfy.

With a warm, welcoming atmosphere – friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff – The Kean’s Head is the ideal place to relax and enjoy, whether it be a peaceful Monday afternoon or a vibrant and lively Saturday evening.

Didn't try the food, but will be back to try that with a group of friends. Excellent range of beers and drinks. Often some rarer or unusual ones. Nice atmosphere and nicely busy. Recommended.

Strong contender for the best pub in Nottingham, and certainly the best pub in the city centre! Top traditional boozer with heaps of beer and cider, plus a comprehensive wine list and spirit selection to boot. Service is just on the right side of friendly, which is fine because there's always a great atmosphere generated anyway by a real mixed crowd which usually fills the place. The five star rating, however, is signed and sealed by Paaji's - the Indian kitchen tucked away behind the bar. Knockout curry and Indian starters (to eat in, or wait for with a beer) make this place a regular stop on our pub crawls!

Very good pub about 10 minutes walk from Nottingham Railway Station. Six cask ales - and three ciders - on handpump when I visited including a milk stout. The pub is located in Nottingham's historic Lace Market opposite the Grade I-listed St Mary's Church. The pub itself, which is Grade II-listed was built in 1907 as offices and a warehouse. It is named after the Shakespearean actor Edmund Kean who in 1861 appeared as Hamlet in a nearby theatre. Busy but not impossibly so before the Spurs game at the City Ground.

Family favourite for a pub lunch. Great staff. Great food. Great beer. Sorted! Burgers and all the loaded fries are very good.

An absolute must-visit for beer drinkers visiting Nottingham. Quaint interior, with plenty of room to get busy but not too big so as to get overbearing! Toilets are a bit last century but the beer selection, food, vibes, and outdoor areas here are great!
