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.

    Lovely food & very friendly helpful staff. Sadly very slow service. Table pre booked for 2pm. Restaurant only half full. Didn’t order starters & dinner not served till 2:55pm. We had 86 year old mum with us who got very agitated waiting for food.

    The food was great, my wife and I enjoy it, would say the from ordering the food to coming to the table took time and trying to get someone to order another drink was hard work, would of be nice for someone to ask if we would like another drink.
