Welcome to the North Nottinghamshire CAMRA website

Terry presents the Pub of the Year 2016 certificate to Wayne and the staff at the Mallard.

The branch was formed in 1979 and currently has around 375 members.

The North Nottinghamshire (or North Notts as it is known) CAMRA area stretches south as far as Laxton and Marnham, north as far as Haxey Gate (north of Misterton), west as far as Worksop and its suburbs and east as far as the river Trent with West Stockwith in the north east corner. Retford is roughly in the centre of the branch area.

There are currently 140 or so pubs listed in the area, not all sell real ale though. The Mallard is the current Pub of the Year 2016.

There are 7 micro breweries operating in the North Notts CAMRA area and they do brew some cracking beers, some of which have been award winning. The Pheasantry Best Bitter won its category at the 2014 CAMRA Great British Beer Festival, Welbeck Abbey gained Silver at the 2017 Winter Beer Festival for Portland Black and Idle Valley Brewing achieved Gold at the National SIBA 2017.

Branch meetings are every month with the AGM being in April. Please look on the Diary page for the date and venue of future branch meetings, all members are welcome to attend, the more the merrier. We do try to move the meetings around the area but not all pubs are suitable.

The branch have regular social events and we encourage friends and non members to come along. We use public transport were we are able. The social events are listed on the diary page.
