Uniquely housed within the elegant surroundings of the listed 17th-century Newdigate House, World Service boasts a stunning 50-cover restaurant, bar and Oriental garden with an al fresco terrace, and offers cuisine of an exceptional standard.

And finally, for dessert, chocolate toffee tart with chocolate soil, orange and clotted cream ice cream. The menu is complemented by an extensive wine list featuring over 200 classic choices, including an excellent selection of Champagne and dessert wine, as well as varieties by the glass and half bottle. An elegant bar, ideal for an aperitif or after-dinner Cognac, connects the restaurant to the private dining rooms; connoisseurs will relish working their way through the extensive cocktail and spirits list. Previous accolades, such as Best Overall Restaurant at Nottingham’s prestigious Restaurant Awards, are testament to World Service’s commitment to quality, innovation and exemplary service.
