Where is Colwick Hall?

Address: Colwick Hall Hotel & Byron’s Brasserie, Colwick Park, Racecourse Road, Nottingham, NG2 4BH
What’s the history of the venue?
The earliest reference to the estate goes way back to 1362 when it passed into the Byron family after the death of William de Colwick when the house was passed via the marriage of his daughter Joan to Sir Richard Byron. In 1775–1776, all of the older buildings were replaced by the present day hall and was enclosed by a moat with a drawbridge on the northern side! In 1831, it was sacked and partly burnt down in the Second Reform Bill riots.
The house passed through a series of different hands until it was bought by Nottingham Racecourse Company in 1896 when the main house was opened as a public house with the rest of the buildings being used for grooms and jockeys. In 1896, it was sold to the Nottingham Corporation in 1965 before falling into disrepair and being restored by Chek Whyte and sold one last time to Pearl Hotels and Restaurants.
