The Crafty Mole Pub

One of the Midlands’ best kept secrets, The Crafty Mole is Balgowan’s local country pub. We specialise in a range of craft beers from local Midlands breweries like Nottingham Road Brewery, Lions River BreweryClockwork Brewers and Doctrine Brewing.

We have a vast selection of vinyl and Chris spins selected genres setting the theme for a good pint – like our Prog-Rock Sundays.

Contact Chris on 082 6880270 for inquiries and bookings.

Enjoy a game of pool or a round of putt-putt, take a stroll in the gardens and make a wish at our wishing well, relax with a tasty craft beer in our beer garden or kick back, snooze in front of the fire. Pub grub available.

The Crafty Mole is a perfect venue for a private party, small conference or product launch with a fully equipped kitchen available.
