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.
lovely place for Sunday lunch white cotton table linen ,wonderful choice of fresh cooked food, and very attentive staff The perfect place to relax and enjoy .

What a find! I ate here with three other people for lunch. We found the dining area very comfortable and roomy. We all had different meals on the light bite menu. Very generous for light portions. I chose the roast dinner of the day with slight trepidation as I have never really had a good roast dinner yet when out. Surprise surprise, not only was it hot it had vegetables that were not only edible but enjoyable as was the rest of the meal, thoroughly enjoyed it. My companions also enjoyed their starters and mains, cant comment on the puds - no room. A great meal for a very reasonable price, girl who welcomed us very sweet and was busy behind the bar and waitressing. It is a shame we were on our travels so will probably not be frequenting the pub in the near future, but will certainly come again when up this way
Having searched on line for "best places to eat in Nottingham", this was our first Sunday lunch at the Elwes Arms, and we weren't disappointed! Although Sundays are restricted to the carvery, there were four roasts to choose from, and between us our party of five sampled them all. The meats were all well cooked, there was a fabulous selection of accompanying vegetables plus Yorkshire puds & stuffing, and the overall service was excellent. Well done to the Elwes - we shall be back!!!
Food was great, great choices, very generous portions and of good quality. Waitress was attentive, friendly and very helpful. The restaurant was very quiet (although they looked like they were gearing it for a large 60th birthday), which in many ways was great as it meant we had super service but as a result lacked a bit if atmosphere. However I was there with 5 family members over 75 so in many ways it worked for us, it wasn't noisy, we had loads of space and throughly enjoyed the food. Would definitely go back
Took our 6 he old with us this time.e he loved that he had a colouring competition on the back of the menu! Ordered the lamb casserole off the specials board was amazing really quick service polite friendly staff the kids menu actually had proper food o. Not just nuggets and chips so even something for the fussy eater!!
We booked a table for my husbands birthday there were 7 adults and 4 children We all enjoyed our meals can’t fault them Friendly staff The only problem we had was there were no children’s menu offered to us and we didn’t know how much their meals would be until the bill arrived Other than that it was brilliant
The table looked nice and clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The meal was lovely and the large selection of roasts, potatoes and vegetables made for an excellent meal. A very good selection of starters and desserts. Very impressed. The lovely surroundings all added to a very pleasant experience.
