Six, Trent Bridge

Tom Sellers to support new restaurant Six at Trent Bridge

Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club have announced a wide-ranging partnership with Michelin starred chef Tom Sellers ahead of the opening of Six, a contemporary British restaurant and bar at Trent Bridge.

The Club commissioned the sixth-floor restaurant premises with panoramic views over Nottingham and West Bridgford as part of a multi-million-pound redevelopment of the media centre in the Radcliffe Road Stand. They will look to source talent and suppliers with strong ties to Nottingham ahead of the opening later this year.

“We have spent months talking to chefs and restauranteurs to support this project, but Tom’s desire to make a contribution in his hometown off the back of his success elsewhere stood him apart,” said Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club Chief Executive Lisa Pursehouse.

“It’s our name above the door, but we’re delighted to have him advising in the background where his influence has already been invaluable.

“This is about more than food for Tom. We share a desire to give young people a chance and to make a real contribution to Nottingham.

“That encompasses opening a restaurant unlike anything else in the city and weaving in opportunities for young talent to contribute in the kitchen and front of house.”

Sellers, 31, grew up in East Leake before honing his skills in the world-renowned kitchens of Tom Aikens, Thomas Keller and René Redzepi.

His pursuit of a Michelin Star was realised within five months of opening Restaurant Story in London and his second property, The Lickfold Inn, continues to enjoy critical acclaim.

Sellers homecoming

This marks as a homecoming of sorts for Nottingham-born Sellers, who will advise on menu development in partnership with a locally appointed chef, support a number of community initiatives and be in attendance to cook at six events throughout the year.

Sellers’ nod to Nottingham is apparent in his recent work. His Merry Men pop-up, celebrating the legend of Robin Hood, which transformed a Victorian warehouse into a medieval banquet, sold out a four-week run within hours of launching.

“I’ve always had an ambition to do something in Nottingham and this feels like the right time and the right fit,” said Tom.

“With a focus on developing young talent from the Nottingham area, I hope opportunities will be provided to young chefs to follow their dreams and carve out a career in the industry like I have

“It’s unusual for me to come along at a stage where big elements of the concept have already been developed, and Six is a Trent Bridge restaurant with me advising in the background rather than the other way around.

“We hope people enjoy Six for what it is. There is room in every city for independent restaurants that combine the right food, service and setting. Put simply, that’s what we’re working on together to achieve.”

Six, Trent Bridge’s new contemporary British restaurant and bar, is set to open in March with early access for those who register their interest at trentbridge.co.uk/six.

New pizza joint Holy Calzone to open this weekend

‘Holy Calzone’, a new pizza restaurant and cafe, is opening this weekend in West Bridgford. It is taking over a former Methodist Church in Trent Boulevard, Lady Bay. The building was previously empty, after the closure of cycle cafe Spoke & Co last November.

To celebrate, the restaurant will be throwing its doors open on Saturday 22nd September for pizza and much more!

Proprietor Nigel Garlick said: “Our overall concept, like all our venues, is to offer exceptional products, awesome service but without taking ourselves too seriously.”

“Holy Calzone will be heavily inspired by the pizza joints and laid back bars of the West Coast of America. A quick bite or a special treat; in big groups or on your own, we should be able to cater for all your needs and most importantly you always leave happy.”

Holy Calzone will be open everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 8am-10pm. Alongside pizza, the menu will feature craft beer, wine, gelato, charcuterie and cheese boards.
