The Embankment is a beautiful Grade II listed building designed by Albert Nelson Bromley. It was opened in 1907 as a Boots pharmacy and later became the Boots social club.

This beautiful pub was restored by the Beer Consortium in 2015 and is comprised of eight distinct areas, including the Dispensary bar, a conservatory, and a large beer garden. Upstairs, the elegant Lord Trent Room and Jesse Boot’s office are available to hire.

Food at the Embankment is an exciting mix of creative and classic dishes from head chef Marc and the team, ranging from pub favourites like scampi and burgers to globally inspired meals including tacos and flatbreads. On the bar you will of course find Castle Rock beers alongside guests from near and far, premium lagers and spirits, wines, and locally roasted coffee.

Located on the city side of Trent Bridge, the Embankment is the ideal spot for sporting fans visiting both Nottingham football grounds and Trent Bridge cricket ground.
