Restaurant description

Experience elevated pub dining at The Dorset Nottingham, where one can bask in the sunshine al fresco-style or cosy up indoors perched on the bright floral chairs. Serving traditional British dishes, stop by first thing for a fry-up or on Sunday afternoons for roast.

Seasonal pub fare and self-proclaimed comfort food is found on The Dorset menu. Start with honey and hoisin-glazed ribs before moving onto fish & chips or the pork belly with sage buttered mash, a black pudding fritter, and golden ale gravy.

At the bar, order tropical cocktails that matches the décor, including the ‘dis-gin-tive’, an elderflower G&T with lychee liqueur and pomegranate. The Dorset restaurant interior is full of life with brilliant colours splashed throughout, from the patterned chairs to deep blue sofas, vibrant wallpaper, and leafy artwork on the wall.

Travelling by car, The Dorset West Bridgford is just 2 minutes from the A52 and a 5-minute walk to the scenic Wilford Claypit Nature Reserve.

    Nice surroundings, care to protect guests and staff during this epidemic was paramount and every precaution was taken to do so. Our server Andrew C. was extremely attentive and polite had a genuine concern regarding our enjoyment of the meal and drinks. Would recommend.

    Sunday dinner was fantastic! Felt at ease the whole time! Amazing service. The pressure they are under due to Covid isn’t noticeable at all. They are doing amazingly. Would definitely recommend.

    Cannot fault anything about our dining experience! We shared tapas dishes & two desserts & polished off the lot! The Dorset is our local pub & in my opinion the best in the area. It is well run & the staff are very efficient & friendly & most of all is very COVID safe.
