About The Old Volunteer

It’s not like we’re going to pressgang you into pulling up a stool and ordering a pint, but we do aver that if you’re a fan of real ale and real British pub food, plus an unbeatably friendly and inclusive atmosphere, booking a table or simply some elbow space at this Nottinghamshire pub is mandatory. Located along Caythorpe Road in the hamlet of Caythorpe itself, about 10 miles northeast of Nottingham city along the River Trent, The Old Volunteer is one pub that deserves the hike.

More about The Old Volunteer, Nottingham

The Old Volunteer serves a wide range of drinks, robust meals, and – perhaps more importantly – a great atmosphere in which to relax and enjoy. That it sits up in picturesque Caythorpe, a small hamlet typical of the many that dot the banks of the River Trent as you drive northeast from Nottingham, makes for an even more authentic, British country pub experience. Locals know it as their default, but The Old Vol (as it’s fondly known), welcomes newcomers with open arms and knows a number of out-of-towners who come here for the quality on offer.

In fact, The Old Volunteer is only a few minutes walk up Caythorpe Road from Lowdham station, meaning this is an excellent stop off if you’re out on a crawl of Nottinghamshire’s best pubs. Set in a handsome building on the edge of Caythorpe that has been sensitively renovated, and with plenty of outdoor seating the venue is a joy to behold in clement weather. Sit up in the beer garden with a hand-pulled pint and some quality British fare to feed you up.
