THE LORD NELSON
The Lord Nelson is a new and exciting refurbishment project located in Dover on the South East Kent Coast.
Dover is a busy seaside town and major ferry port currently going through a period of regeneration and as the nearest English port to France, it is one of the World’s busiest passenger ports.
The Lord Nelson boasts a great central location overlooking the new St James retail & leisure park with a Cineworld, M&S and other leading retail outlets. It is just a 2 minute walk into Dover’s main high street and the beach front and its just few minutes’ drive to the main Ferry Port. Local attractions include historical Dover Castle and the National Trust’s famous White Cliffs of Dover.
The pub is currently closed for a complete development and refurbishment scheme to include both the interior and exterior of the building and moving forward, we are looking for dynamic tenants that can reposition the Lord Nelson and its offer in the local market place.
Set out over three floors, the new ground floor trade area will include a feature bar servery with open plan drinking & dining space for approx. 30 covers, a trade kitchen and a wheelchair accessible toilet. The ladies and gentleman's toilets will be located on the first floor.
The new look outdoor areas will include patio seating to the front of the property and a stone paved terrace to the back of the property with a retractable awning and café style furniture.
The tenants private accommodation is located across both the first and second floors and it will also be fully refurbished as part of the development scheme. It will house a new kitchen/diner, a lounge, a bathroom, store room and three bedrooms.
Shepherd Neame is now looking for potential partners with a vision to re-launch and develop the Lord Nelson as a café culture bar & restaurant. Subject to planning and building consent, the pub should be ready to open in November to December 2019.
