Middletons was situated on Trowell Road. This pub was burnt down whilst awaiting demolition.
Originally named the Deep Cellar, it opened in 1970. Re-named the Roebuck in 1986 and then became Middeltons from 2007. Outline planning permission was granted on the 3rd June 1969 for a pub for James Shipstone & Sons on the site of a garden, with full planning permission granted on 23 April 1970. The architect was M.D.P.Hammond of W.B.Starr, Clifford & Carman based at Beedham House, 204 Derby Road. The structure is of brick on concrete footings, with buff facing brick to 11" cavity walls on all elevations. An outdoor terrace on the East and part of the North elevation is of artificial stone and there are some stone panels and walling within the brick. The pub originally had an "L"-shaped plan, with the public bar to the front and the lounge down the side and extending to the rear, with the main entrance door on the right-hand corner between the lavatories and there was an inner lobby, now incorporated into the former public bar area. The public bar had windows facing the road and a corner next to the gents was the darts area, screened by the door from a corner lobby. A conservatory had been added to the lounge by July 1988. A planning application was made in July 2007 for the bricking-up of windows and erection of a new main entrance when the name changed to Middletons. The plans for these alterations were by Boyce Associates created a disabled lavatory where the old entrance was and new doors from the public bar facing the road, with an external drinking area in front and introduced a new main entrance to the rear with a "lower" lounge added to the old on the site of the conservatory. Beyond it to the North West is a new kitchen. The two-storey front to Trowell Road, where there is a flat over the public bar, is rendered with some timber boarding to the main first-floor elevation. Then new entrance facing Trowell Road is convincing and uses part of the original window frame but the old entrance can be discerned on the side near the corner. The interior has been entirely stripped out and re-done in a modern Deco style, with Art Deco carpet and seating. This rear area is used by bands
