The Larwood & Voce Pub & Kitchen is a light and airy pub / restaurant that has become a firm favourite amongst West Bridgford folk. Various areas of the bar and restaurant can be sectioned off for exclusive use. The restaurant area maintains an air of 'busy calm' with a professional and dedicated front-of-house team keeping the ball rolling. The dining experience is respectfully informal - think gastropub without the pretension, relaxed and unassuming. The Larwood & Voce is one of three establishments owned by The Moleface Pub Co. The others being: The Wollaton Pub & Kitchen and The Lord Nelson Pub & Kitchen.
Plenty of wood, mixed fabrics and leather combine with muted reds and greens to bring a homely yet modern feel. A fantastically vibrant atmosphere at busy times is juxtaposed with a feeling of 'reading room' calm on quieter days. On whatever day you visit however, you will be in the very capable hands of The Larwood brigade. A team of chefs dedicated to authentic flavours and constant improvement, work in harmony with the seasons, whilst the front of house team bring it all together beautifully.
