Tucked away in the Nottinghamshire countryside, The Old Volunteer offers award-winning food in a friendly and relaxed pub.
We are committed to delivering excellence in every area of customer experience. Our front-of-house staff are friendly and professional and our highly experienced kitchen team are dedicated to delivering high quality food using locally-sourced produce and seasonal ingredients.
We are open seven days a week, from noon through to late evening. We have an increasing number of plant-based options on our menus so there is something for everyone to enjoy.
With plenty of indoor and outdoor areas to enjoy a drink and a delicious meal, come on down, we are sure you won’t be disappointed!
We have recently refurbished our much loved pub. We extended out to add more space for our sports area and nothing was left untouched. You may also notice we have had a full re-brand with a brand new logo, colour scheme and website. We would love for you to come and see the changes we have made, book a table today…
