Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem
One of the QWerkiest oubs in the UK. A must visit destination
Caves and caverns, Chairs in which if you sit you could become pregnant, Galleons and tours.. This pub is unique. We love all the little touches. This pub has lots of character and a very strange but engaging game in one of the rooms. The games aim, being to swing a hoop which is attached to the ceiling by string over a cows horn on the wall.

Profile Description

This fascinating trip to us will open your eyes to the wonders of Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, built into the rocks that Nottingham Castle are built on and with a wealth of history and enchanting features. Real open fires make you feel warm and welcome in the Winter.

Many people believe the pub is named ‘Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem’ because people made a trip to Jerusalem from here. In fact the word “trip” does not mean a journey in this case. An old meaning for ‘trip’ is a stop on a journey, like being tripped up, so the inn’s name means a stop or rest on the way to Jerusalem.

The pub is famous for its caves, carved out of the soft sandstone rock against which the building is set. The larger ground level caverns are now used as the pub’s rear drinking rooms. There is also a network of caves beneath the building, originally used as a brewery. They seem to date from around the time of the construction of the castle (1068 AD).

The cursed galleon is a small wooden model of a ship in one the upstairs lounge. It is claimed that people who have cleaned it have all met a mysterious death. Landlords have refused to allow anyone to dust the ship over the years, allowing inches of thick grime to build up on it. The galleon is now encased in glass.

The pub also houses an antique chair; it is claimed that a woman who sits in the chair will increase her chances of becoming pregnant. So many people have sat on the chair in the hope of it bringing them pregnancy that is now is too weak to withstand the huge demand… It is now on display in the upstairs lounge.
