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.

    Very Friendly girls with an atmosphere good but only because there were not too many people in that evening, as it was Sunday lunch that got most of the customers that day. The decor is enjoyable to look round , and a lovely meal to follow.

    Visited for breakfast and was disappointed. Extremely slow service and poor quality food. Staff never once ask if everything was ok or if we wanted further drinks. Will not be visiting again for breakfast.

    Good service, great food. The changes made because of the pandemic are well considered and did not detract from the eating out experience at all.
