Sat Bains to buy his restaurant at Hotel des Clos

Sat Bains is set to take control of the restaurant that shares his name at the Hotel des Clos in Nottingham.

Bains: planning a £250,000 refit

Bains hopes to sign a 15-year lease for the Michelin starred Restaurant Sat Bains within the next few days and start work on a £250,000 refurbishment.

The 40-seat site is currently owned by Terry Doak, who bought the Hotel des Clos for £1m four weeks ago. The restaurant, which is being sold for an undisclosed sum, will reopen in early December as a separate business.

Bains said: "I want to give the restaurant a ‘wow' factor. It will go from having a cottagey feel to somewhere sexy and timeless."

One ingredient of his vision is the "kitchen table", which diners can hire for £800 and watch their 12 courses being prepared.
