A stunning new luxury restaurant has opened for business at Wavensmere Homes’ Nightingale Quarter development.

The Pepperpot restaurant, located within the £175 million residential development, has opened its doors to the public.

Operated by The Fulton Partnership, the venue occupies one of two restored Victorian ‘pepper pot’ buildings, which originate from the Florence Nightingale-designed former Derbyshire Royal Infirmary.

Located off London Road, adjacent to the Derbion shopping centre, The Pepperpot is open seven days a week, serving drinks and gastro-style breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a strong focus on classic British, Mediterranean and American dishes, using locally sourced ingredients.

James Dickens, managing director at Wavensmere Homes, said: “To have a restaurant of this quality on site at Nightingale Quarter is a huge asset to the community living on the doorstep and the city of Derby as a whole.

“The Pepperpot team has our full support, and we can’t wait to see it become the heart and soul of this vibrant new neighbourhood.”

A bijou cocktail bar and café area occupy the footprint of the historic building conversion, with an air-conditioned glass box extension housing the main restaurant to the rear.

Wavensmere Homes and The Fulton Partnership have collectively invested more than £1m in the project.

Creating 25 new full- and part-time jobs, The Pepperpot is The Fulton Partnership’s sixth venue in the Midlands.

Graeme Fulton, owner of The Fulton Partnership, said: “Becoming the custodian for such a grand Victorian landmark is an honour and we have set out to make the people of Derby as proud as we are of this unique new venue.

“The Pepperpot is our first city centre location, and no expense has been spared.

“The interior is akin to a fine London hotel, with a refined heritage colour pallet and nods to the Art Deco era.”

Wavensmere Homes began work on the Nightingale Quarter scheme in late 2019.

The 18.5-acre site is one of the UK’s most significant city centre regeneration projects.

During the past four years, 95% of the 925 homes have already been matched with buyers, with construction work ongoing for the final phases.

Graeme said: “We will be counting on the continued support of the 1,000 residents already living at the Nightingale Quarter, locals living across Derby, and visitors to the city, to make this the destination people come back to time and time again.

“With such a superb location – only a short walk from the Derbion shopping centre and Derby train station – The Pepperpot ticks all the boxes.”

The Fulton Partnership and Wavensmere Homes are set to hold a special Marketing Derby VIP Preview event at The Pepperpot on Tuesday 27 February.
