5-7 Castle Road, Nottingham, NG1 6AA
Watson Fothergills takes its name from the renowned Nottingham architect who designed the building, and many other great landmarks in the city, in the late 19th century. The building dates back to 1883 and stays true to its heritage. It sits opposite the statue of Robin Hood by Nottingham Castle, making it a great location to eat and drink in the city. Inside, stripped-back, stylish and relaxed decor sets the tone, and creates a friendly, welcoming environment to enjoy some great bistro-style food. All dishes are freshly cooked using produce from local suppliers. A great-value fixed-price lunch menu offers a wide range of choices for every palate – try the Asian duck salad, or beef and thyme stew. With plenty of choice for vegetarians, the evening dinner menu also boasts a number of seasonal specials including fresh fish,pasta and steak options. Large platters are available for friends to share, best when paired with a bottle of chilled wine. The traditional Sunday lunch is an institution at Fothergills, and booking is advised. Fothergills is proud of its drinks menu. A good range of local ales and craft beers are always available on draught, alongside a comprehensive wine list, various soft drinks, and tea and coffee. If you’re looking to retreat from the busy city centre, Fothergills is the place to be.
