Moleface Pub Company, the Midlands-based gastropub operator, has snapped up its second pub, the Lord Nelson, an Enterprise leasehold in Burton Joyce, just outside Nottingham, Paul Charity writes. A four-week refit is planned for the Lord Nelson, with £150,000 budgeted. The new pub follows the successful launch of the Larwood & Voce, a site adjacent to the Trent Bridge cricket ground in Nottingham last year. “We’re taking some ideas from the Larwood, but adding some new ones,” said founder John Molnar. “The client base is a lot older, plus there is no world-famous sporting venue backed onto it, so we¹ll have to think of other things to get people through the door.” The food offer will be slightly different - with a large area of land, he is looking at growing vegetables and herbs on site. “We are also possibly going to be building our own smokehouse, for salmon,” he adds. “That can be sold at the Larwood as well, which will help raise the profile of both pubs.”
