About us

Poised on the corner of the city overlooking the beautiful Arkwright University Building and Gardens, The Playwright is at the bustling heart of the great city of Nottingham.

The Playwright is a neighbourhood hangout serving freshly made artisan pizzas, bubbling pots of comfort food, seriously tasty beers and a delicious selection of cocktails.

Our gorgeous wood-fired oven, 'Juliet', cooks all our pizzas and pots from fresh at a scorching 290°. We cater for everyone so we've also got gluten-free options available. 

Join us for a full line up of exciting monthly events with something for everyone.

Oh, and we also love dogs, meaning they are most welcome to join you in our bar area.
