Rescue Rooms Bar & Food



We're hosting our first ever Beer Festival on August 27th!!

2017 beer festival

The main bar is being taken over by London brewer Beavertown, who started brewing back in 2011 and have gone from strength to strength. On the 27th they will be showcasing their best works, with something to suit everyone! Once you've grabbed a drink you can take a seat, relax and enjoy the chilled out music being provided by Acoustic Rooms all day. 

We're transforming our venue in to a German Beer Hall good enough to rival even the best Oktoberfest. ABK Brewery will be providing us with their authentic Bavarian beer, that they've been brewing for over 700 years!! There will be live music all day on the stage, ending with a world renowned Oompah band to close the event with a bang!

Nottingham's own Blue Barrel Cider will be taking over Red Rooms, alongside more locals Thirsty Farmer & Torkard Cider. We will be converting Red Room to resemble the farms the fruit was originally picked from.. use your imagination!

On our front patio award winning butcher Johnny Pusztai will be bringing his bbq and cooking up a storm! You'll be able to satisfy your hunger with the best burgers and sausages, cooked to perfection by a man who really know's what he's doing!

Tickets for the event are £10, with each ticket you get 2 beer tokens and £1 from each ticket goes to a local charity.
