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 now closed for a complete development and refurbishment scheme to include both the interior and exterior of the building. Once re-opened, we are looking for dynamic tenants to reposition the Lord Nelson in the local market place.
Set out over three floors, the new ground floor trade area will include an open plan bar area, a snug bar, dining space for approx. 32 covers and a Wheelchair accessible toilet. The first floor will include ladies and gentleman's toilets, an office and a good sized and fully equipped trade kitchen and stores with a dumbwaiter.
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 on the second floor of the building and it will also be fully refurbished as part of the development scheme. It will house a new kitchen/diner, a lounge, a bathroom and two 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 2019.
