Ossington Coffee Palace
Ossington Coffee Palace
A copy of a 17th century hostelry erected in 1882 as a Temperance Hotel by Viscountess Ossington, daughter of the fourth Duke of Portland, brother of 'the burrowing' fifth Earl and widow of the first Viscount Ossington, one time Speaker Dennison of the House of Commons. It was designed by one of the most prestigious London firms of architects Ernest George & Peto and stands in a prominent position opposite the castle by Trent Bridge on the Great North Road and the River Trent. A potent statement against the evils of alcohol, it proved unpopular and has latterly been used as offices, a bar ! and currently as 'Zizzi at the Ossington' restaurant.
