Showing the steam engine previously used by the Nottingham Patent Brick Company in the quarry at this location. it was incorporated into the pub when it was built, and in 1982 it was donated to the Nottingham industrial museum at Wollaton Hall (its size meant that when it was moved it had to be lifted through the roof of the pub). The public house opened in 1969 as The Engine House, renamed in 1982 as the Steam Engine. It was later called The Thorn Bush, and is now called 'The New Engine House', to reflect the original name.
