As an operation, Brewhouse & Kitchen is one of the UK’s fastest growing companies, with an annual anticipated turnover in excess of £18 million for 2017.
The former Riverbank site, boasting views overlooking the River Trent in the heart of West Bridgford, Nottingham, has seen a £600,000 investment to transform the venue. The new brewpub will be an original offering for the area, complete with upstairs function room with capacity for 120 guests and can cater for 550 guests in total within the bar, restaurant and garden areas.
Each pub serves over 50 different craft beers and an interesting selection of ciders from breweries around the world, as well as a playful selection of ‘beertails’, wines and spirits, expertly paired with dishes from their menus.
Speaking of the opening, managing director Simon Bunn said: “We are delighted to welcome Nottingham into the Brewhouse & Kitchen family and to make our mark on the area’s thriving food and drink scene. We will be welcoming pre-booked guests for our Father’s Day celebrations, after which we will be open to the general public.
“Although beers are our forte, we pride ourselves on creating an exciting menu of innovative dishes, including pub-classics, Sunday roasts and sharing platters, which effortlessly complement our drinks range and when paired with a great beer, really bring out the best in its tasting notes. A number of our dishes also use elements of beer as an added ingredient, such as our beer-infused cheese sauces and garlic and hop salt for seasoning chips.
“What makes our pubs unique is the fact that each one has its very own microbrewery and we employ a dedicated local brewer to operate it. We’re pleased to announce Ben Pearson will be the man for the job at Brewhouse & Kitchen Nottingham, and our guests can watch him in action thanks to the centrally-located copper vessels that will brew his fantastic craft beers.”
Simon added: “Our team have been busy delving deep into local history to name our craft brews and create our Little Book of Beer Stories. We can’t wait to share our findings with residents in the coming weeks and hopefully teach them a thing or two they may not already know about Nottingham and West Bridgford.
“This will be our 17th site nationwide and is a testament to the great success we have had as a business since our first opening in 2013. In line with our ambitious plans for growth, we hope to be operating at least 20 sites by the end of the year and continuing our expansion into new and exciting locations well into the foreseeable future.”
