This is the second offering by Living Ventures after they opened Gusto on the former Monkey Tree site last year.

Fire and Ice to close after 11 years

Fire and Ice will close its doors in June after 11 years of trading on Bridgford Road. Opened in 2006 it has been at the heart of the upsurge of the food and drink scene in West Bridgford.

We are personally really sad to see this venue close – fantastic pizza and some fantastic nights there. We wish the owners all the best in the future.

This is the latest in a spate of recent closures of independents which has seen both the Riverbank and Chin Chin close this year.
