Tom Sellers joins new restaurant team at Trent Bridge

Tom Sellers has announced plans help develop a new restaurant at Trent Bridge under an agreement with Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club.

Contemporary British restaurant and bar Six will open on the sixth floor of the cricket ground's Radcliffe Road Stand, in March.

Sellers said: "I've always had an ambition to do something in Nottingham and this feels like the right time and the right fit.

"With a focus on developing young talent from the Nottingham area, I hope opportunities will be provided to young chefs to follow their dreams and carve out a career in the industry like I have.

"It's unusual for me to come along at a stage where big elements of the concept have already been developed, and Six is a Trent Bridge restaurant with me advising in the background rather than the other way around.

"We hope people enjoy Six for what it is. There is room in every city for independent restaurants that combine the right food, service and setting. Put simply, that's what we're working on together to achieve."

Nottingham-born Sellers, who owns one-Michelin-starred Restaurant Story in London as well as the Lickfold Inn, in West Sussex, will advise on menu development working with a locally appointed chef.

Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club chief executive Lisa Pursehouse said: "We have spent months talking to chefs and restaurateurs to support this project, but Tom's desire to make a contribution in his hometown off the back of his success elsewhere stood him apart.

"It's our name above the door, but we're delighted to have him advising in the background where his influence has already been invaluable. This is about more than food for Tom. We share a desire to give young people a chance and to make a real contribution to Nottingham."
