We say…

You’ll find community spirit at the very heart of The Willowbrook, a locally-adored Castle Rock pub bringing great food and real ales to Gedling. On the outskirts of Nottingham, approximately four miles northeast of the city centre, the village is also on the doorstep of nearby suburban settlements such as Carlton and Arnold, meaning many can count Gedling’s favourite pub as one of their locals. Its proximity to Gedling Country Park - a popular green space with several walking paths leading to incredible views from its hilltops - means The Willowbrook is the perfect place to stop for a pint and pub-lunch after working up an appetite on a long, pleasant walk. 

The Willowbrook fits in effortlessly with the surrounding houses, differentiated only by a royal blue ribbon-stripe proudly displaying the Castle Rock logo, so it really feels like it’s a cornerstone of the neighbourhood. Its classic red-brick exterior is inviting and homely, while inside the otherwise-traditional pub is given a fresh, contemporary update with wooden flooring and seating, and art-deco artwork lining the walls. There is outdoor dining space aplenty, with picnic benches out front and an unexpectedly-spacious beer garden to the rear, ideal for making the most of those summer afternoons. 

Known in particular for its food, The Willowbrook is passionate about offering a no-fuss, high-quality menu full of generously-portioned dishes. Breakfast is served before midday, with multi-buy offers 7 days a week so you can enjoy your Full English or vegetarian alternative for less. For lunch or dinner, main courses include all of your favourites, from British staple fish and chips to Italian-inspired stone baked pizzas. You can also get homemade burgers, such as the eponymous Willowbrook burger topped with bacon, cheddar and onion rings, all served in a brioche bun with hand-cut chips and fresh coleslaw. In keeping with its communal character, The Willowbrook is family-friendly, even providing optional crayons and colouring books to keep the little ones entertained while they wait for their choice from the specially-designed children’s menuDesserts are available for sweet-toothed visitors, and of course there’s a fully-stocked bar serving Castle Rock’s very own Harvest Pale, Elsie Mo and Preservation beers on tap alongside guest ales, premium lagers and traditional ciders.

The Willowbrook is the embodiment of everything that’s great about a village pub: value-for-money, delicious food and locally-brewed beverages in a warm and welcoming environment with a wonderfully friendly atmosphere.
