A group of East Midlands entrepreneurs, led by hospitality and leisure consultant David Waycot, have acquired the Lakeside in Nottingham, with the prime objective of creating a five star luxury venue.

The Grade ll listed former Victorian Pumping Station is currently undergoing a multi-million pound refurbishment programme, with phase one expected to be completed and ready for opening in the spring of 2018.

The new owners are committed to completely restoring the property and delivering it back to its former glories, and in doing so providing Nottingham and the Midlands with an outstanding luxury facility to embrace all social occasions and events.

The Industrial Victorian interior is to be sensitively re-styled and enhanced by the highly acclaimed design company ‘Design Practice by Uber’ directed by senior design consultant – Simon Evans.


Phase one will conceive a stunning 80 seater restaurant and Champagne and cocktail bar, along with ‘alfresco’ lakeside dining. In addition the ‘Tower Banqueting Suite’ will seat up to 80 guests, and will be licensed for civil ceremonies and weddings.

The kitchen brigade will be of a Michelin star pedigree. It will be vigorous in its attitude and approach towards free range, environmental issues and the sourcing of local, seasonal ingredients – and will serve the best of international and British cuisine.
