Fancy a trip to Jerusalem – or, sorry, the oldest inn in the country? This pub is nestled beneath Nottingham Castle and is supposedly where King Richard the Lionheart and his men gathered for journeying to Jerusalem in 1189 AD. The pub has several bars, nooks and lounges plus a beer garden. You can eat there every day between 11 am and 10 pm, or you can warm up next to the fire inside, surrounded by history.
