An iconic Nottingham city centre restaurant has just reopened after being bought and revamped by the Ever So Sensible Group earlier this year.
Fothergills, which has existed at the site on Castle Road in Nottingham under various ownerships has been everything from a bar and grill to a casual café. The historic establishment has new been re-fitted and redecorated to transform it in a beautiful bistro-style pub that is closer to the venue’s heritage than any of its previous guises.
Chris Bulaitis, managing director of the Ever So Sensible Group, said: “We’ve had a very busy first few days and had some great feedback about the changes we’ve made;
“Fothergills now offers a more unique international bistro-style menu, using ingredients from local producers. We also offer ales from local micro-breweries and a great selection of wines.
“Customers can now settle in more relaxed and welcoming surroundings, true to the building’s heritage and with great views of Nottingham Castle.”
The building that houses Fothergills was built in 1883 and was designed by architect Watson Fothergill, hence the choice of name. The restaurant now has a more relaxed and stripped-back interior which displays more of the site’s original features and architectural significance.
The opening of Fothergills marks the opening of the 11th site of Ever So Sensible Groups ever-expanding brand. The company’s current profile includes the Le Mistral Bistros in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, Dogma in Lincoln and Nottingham, The Castle and Bad Juju in Nottingham city centre, The Marquis Wellington in Leicester and the recently opened Horse and Groom in Lincoln.
