It is with great sadness we have called last orders in all our pubs for the time being to support the fight against COVID-19. But don’t worry, we are busy working on opening our doors again with the safety of our teams and customers as our number one priority. While we continue to follow government guidelines, we’re getting excited for the day we can meet again and raise a glass in the pub.
Until then, stay safe, and don’t forget us!
OUR VIRTUAL PUB IS OPEN!
While our pubs are closed, we’ve decided to open a virtual pub, The Lock Inn. We know many of our customers are feeling cut-off from their friends and for some a visit to the pub is the only social contact they will have in a day. The Lock Inn aims to help tackle loneliness and isolation by offering activities and entertainment to encourage interaction. We’re starting with a WEEKLY INTERACTIVE QUIZ on Wednesdays at 6pm and ROCK AND ROLL BINGO every Friday at the same time, with more events and community support activities planned over the coming weeks.
All meetings, events and hotel bookings have been cancelled at this venue up until 3rd July 2020. If you have an enquiry about your booking, please call 0345 60 86 040. For cancellation queries click here.
Welcome to the
This beautiful 15th century country pub stands opposite the splendid Grade I Listed Newstead Abbey and its glorious grounds in the very heart of ancient Sherwood Forest. Serving travellers on the King’s Highway from Nottingham to Mansfield since medieval times, The Hutt was built in 1400 on the site where King John’s ‘Royal Hutt’ had stood, housing the foresters who protected the King’s deer. By the 17th century it was a coaching inn and a welcome refuge for merchants to gather before braving the notorious Thieves Wood. From its imposing stone archway to its low, exposed beams and private nooks and crannies, this atmospheric and historic inn offers a truly memorable experience for guests. After enjoying the history, grandeur and romance of Newstead Abbey, former home of romantic poet Lord Byron, visitors can savour the atmosphere and relax with a delicious Sunday lunch or a seasonal special from the extensive pub menu served at The Hutt. The Hutt was built in 1400 as part of the spectacular Newstead Estate, on the site of a Royal Hutt, one of seven built to house the men patrolling Sherwood Forest to protect the King’s deer - King John himself is said to have stayed there. Just across from The Hutt stands the majestic Newstead Abbey - a stunning 12th Century Grade I Listed Building. Purchased by the Byron family in 1540, it was passed through the generations of the family until 1817, which included notorious English poet and leading figurehead of the Romantic Movement, Lord Byron. The Hutt is a dog friendly pub and we can offer our guests small functions in our conservtory, please inquire within for further details.
We are closed
As of the 20 March we are closed. It is with great sadness we are calling last orders in all our pubs for the time being, given the escalation of the coronavirus crisis.
