About The Elwes Arms

The British pub is more than institution, it’s the central point of our culture and our communities. The handy local alehouse has evolved over the years, though, and the gastropub is just another movement forwards in thousands of years of tradition: in Carlton on the outskirts of Nottingham, they have a wine and wittles joint of which they are rightly proud. The Elwes Arms on Oakdale Road offers the best of both worlds. A menu packed with pub grub favourites – burgers, gammon and egg, beef and ale pie – while also rewarding the more adventurous diner, with lesser-spotted British favourites like Welsh cawl. Their bar is, of course, well-stocked too, featuring a range of cask ales and fine wines, so you really have no excuse: book a table at The Elwes Arms and bring the whole brood in for a feed.
