The Embankment, a Grade II listed building, was designed by Albert Nelson Bromley – the architect behind some of the most distinctive Boots pharmacy buildings, and opened in 1907 as ‘Boots Store 2’. The building also became home to the Boots Social Club which was created by Jesse Boot himself as a place of recreation for his staff.
This stunning building is perfectly located on the city side of Trent Bridge, and is within a couple of minutes’ walk from both Nottingham football grounds and Trent Bridge cricket ground. Whilst downstairs is home to a real ale and craft beer bar/restaurant, upstairs, Jesse Boot’s office remains as it always has – a beautiful wood-clad room with a gallery view of the main bar and stained glass windows, ideal for corporate meetings and intimate functions for up to 48 people.
The art deco Lord Trent Room, the former social area of the Embankment building, is a stunning function room which has been restored to its former glory with double height ceilings, crystal chandelier, original leaded stained glass windows, elegant arches and a central dance floor. The Lord Trent Room has a maximum capacity of 140 guests, has the use of a private bar plus offers a projector and screen, flipchart, and WiFi.
With a variety of buffet menus, three course dinners, and homemade dishes to choose from, ample parking spaces and only a short drive from the city centre, this beautiful building offers warmth and character in historic surroundings.
