Our round-up of new openings, closures and changes for March show that it’s been a very quiet month across the region, however, we have a couple of major refurbishments/changes to look out for.

Firstly, most, if not all, will be aware that Hart’s Restaurant closed its doors in favour of a downsizing to its Park Bar, now renamed Hart’s Kitchen – providing continuity of name and ethos but with a new take and under a newly appointed head chef, Martin Sludd.  New dishes have been designed by Aaron Patterson from sister hotel and Michelin Starred Hambleton Hall and the a la carte menu is now available from 5.30pm instead of 6pm for pre theatre goers and all day Sunday, from 12 – 9pm; new to the restaurant is the Brunch service which operates from 9.30 – 11am Monday to Friday and from 10am – 11am at weekends.  Hart’s Kitchen has 20 covers plus an additional 7 in the bar area. The relocation ensures a warm and inviting environment, while having retained the same front of house team from the original restaurant, you can be sure of the same attention to detail as previously delivered.  Fb@HartsNottingham

Secondly, The Moleface Pub Company have invested in their West Bridgford offering, The Larwood & Voce, with the first phase of a major refurbishment now complete. The pub décor is now more inviting and comfortable creating a much nicer drinking environment and somewhere you’re happy to spend time with friends and family… ‘less waiting room, more proper pub’.  Eclectic lighting, retro signage, leather banquettes, velvet covered chairs and poseur tables are among the new additions. They’ve also introduced a new cocktail list and now offer over 20 different premium gin brands.

Events are key to pulling in the punters; vinyl junkies can take over the decks as part of the newly introduced ‘After work DJ sessions’ from 6pm every Friday evening.  Check out their facebook page for more details of those plus the ever-popular pub quizzes and sports events; they’ve also introduced daily happy hours from 5pm-8pm with their new cocktail range taking centre stage.  Fb @LarwoodVocePubKitchen

As reported in last month’s Blog, the modern British fine dining restaurant, SIX, launched at Trent Bridge and seafood restaurant, The Yacht Club opened in the old Bear & Lace premises on Maid Marian Way.  If you’re a carnivore, don’t be put off, there’s still plenty on the menu for you to choose from – it’s not just fish and seafood but I guess you should go sea for yourself!  Fb@theyachtclubnottingham

Among the launches to look out for in April is Penny Lane, the latest offering from the team behind Hockley Arts Club and Das Kino, etc.  Located at Fletcher Gate, this restaurant and bar will offer a classic seaside feel, serving a modern British menu.  There’ll be more details to follow on this venue in next month’s Blog.
