A traditional family-friendly pub

Soak up our friendly service and homely charm here at the Johnson Arms in Dunkirk, Nottingham. The pub has stood proudly on the side of the river Leen since it was called the Abbey Tavern in the 1860s, before Frank Johnson bought the building in 1904 and renamed it the Johnson Arms. We’re the perfect place to sit back, relax with your favourite drink in hand. Enjoy 20p off each Cask-conditioned ale straight from the brewery, with our CAMRA discount.

Looking to host an event or private party? We've got FREE venue hire at weekends. Looking ahead to New Years Eve, you can hire the whole pub for your very own exlusive New Years Eve party! Almost any occasion is possible here at The Johnson Arms. We're just at the end of the phone, so give us a call!
