Description:
What a fantastic little gem of a pub.

The Malt Cross has been open in its current form since November 2003 set up by a consortium of city centre churches, St John's College and the University Chaplains.

It was refurbished in 1997 with money from the European Regional Development Fund, The Arts Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund. Having been restored to its original splendor, it's one of the finest and last remaining Music Halls in the country.

The pub is named after the original Malt Cross which was situated on the Market Square from 1495 - 1714. The standing building was originally a music hall opened by Mr Charles Weldon in 1877. The pub still use the building for music concerts every couple of times a month I think!!

The pub do excellent food and drinks. The real ale selection is fantastic. We tried a Blue Monkey beer on our visit and a beer especially brewed for the pub. The beer was fantastic. Perhaps the best kept beer in town!!

The pub is ran by a church charity and their aim is to care for the community.

Every Friday and Saturday nights, volunteers from the establishment go out to care for, protect, comfort and support p*ss-heads on the streets of Nottingham, nice!

They also run a 'safe space' on a weekend night from a small shop at the front of the pub. Anyone can come from 10pm to 3 am, where people can come and wait for a taxi, get advice, someone to listen to them, first aid if you get into a fight, signposting or just to sober up after twenty pints of ale. What a gem of an idea.

The staff a very welcoming in here and make you feel at home. The clientele in here are of various ages and are a nice bunch.

Now its time for a pee.

The loos are located right across from the bar and cannot be missed.

We have some lovely loos in here. Four urinals and two cubicles. The cubicles are big inside and were super clean on our visit.

Love the flooring in these bogs. Three wash basins and one super looking big wall mirror. The highlight of these loos is the bin. What a lovely red bin, so nice! Make sure you pop your rubbish in it.

No Johnny Machine in here as the churches don't agree with that sort of thing. A fly catching machine in here to, why its on in the middle of the winter is a mystery.

What a fantastic pub. Great loos to.

9/10.
