We’re Junkyard, a neighbourhood café bar and brother of the renowned speakeasy cocktail bar Boilermaker. Nestled between Fletcher Gate and Bridlesmith Gate, our home, the former Walk Café has been fully refurbished into a 140 capacity venue featuring a hidden back yard oasis open 10am to 1am Monday to Saturday, 11am to 12am Sunday.

We’re in The Observer Food Monthly Awards; Best Places to Drink, Guardian; Top Ten Budget Places to Eat in Nottingham, The Times; 25 Coolest Restaurants in the U.K.

Junkyard combines the laid back feel of a North California bar and eatery with a specialist craft beer shop jammed full of bottles and cans of craft beers for drinking in or taking home. In the bar fifteen taps dispense the very best American, British and European craft keg brews.

Oenophiles can choose from a carefully selected wine list, and of course, great cocktails and homemade sodas are in our blood and on our menu.

Our passion for doing things properly extends way beyond sourcing and serving fine and interesting craft drinks. We love awesome food! Freshly prepared grazing plates, sharing dishes, deli classics and bar snacks are available from 10am brunchtime through to midnight.

Our ethos is simple; to develop a culture of like-minded individuals, brought together through a love of great products and great service.
