Ruddington Pub in Beer Drinkers’ Bible!

“Just good beer!” That’s the secret of the success of Ruddington’s Frame Breakers pub according to manager Amy Cameron – as staff and customers celebrate a prestigious place in the 2018 Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) Good Beer Guide, published TODAY. It’s the first time in five years that ANY of our village pubs has featured in the real ale almanac – since both The Three Crowns and The White Horse were dropped after the 2013 edition following changes in management. Now in its 45th year, the Good Beer Guide features 4,500 pubs…

“And the Best Pub in Nottingham is….”

…in Ruddington!” The latest accolade for The Ruddington Arms on Wilford Road came at last night’s (15th June) Nottinghamshire Food & Drink Awards 2017 run by The Nottingham Post. It’s another gong to add to a shelf full of awards since the historic “Jolly Farmers Inn” was rebranded and reopened in April 2014 by current owners Mark and Sarah Anderson following a £250,000 makeover.  This transformed a failing venue into an attractive, modern gastropub with a 50 seat restaurant area – but one which still welcomes locals who just wish to pop in casually to sample one of…

Village Plan Out Soon

It’s been announced that another milestone will be reached this summer with the publication of the final Ruddington Village Plan –  your vision for how our village should develop over the next 5 to 10 years. Originally begun in 2013, the Village Plan has been painstakingly formulated by an independent steering group made up of around twenty volunteers who live and/or work in Ruddington alongside up to three Ruddington Parish Council representatives.
