A new takeaway aiming to keep the ‘spirit of Nottingham’s Robin Hood alive’ may soon open inside a popular city centre bar. The ‘Fryer Tuck’ takeaway could soon be operating out of Spankies in Goldsmith Street, after plans were submitted to Nottingham city council.

The proposals include the creation of a new takeaway in part of the bar facing Talbot Street, with a new service window and ‘Fryer Tuck’ signs. The applicant in the plans for the takeaway said he aimed to add to the city that he has “always loved” through the restaurant.

Applicant Ahmed Kasim, in a planning document, said: “I propose to operate a new takeaway from the above premises and this application for a new service window and signage facilitates the proposed takeaway use. I am a student at Nottingham Trent and have always loved Nottingham.

“It’s a city of culture, nightlife, sport, and stories – one that’s big on fun, and small on cost. It’s friendly, it’s exciting and has excellent transport links – the perfect place to embrace your independence. The love for small business and art has always kept me here and will keep me here after university.

“The site is located near a dilapidated burger van that has permanently closed. This was well located as it would stop club goers walking to the other side of town to get their food, instead they would buy their food close by to then get a taxi straight home.

“We propose to give the residents of Nottingham a more premium product, with better food and a faster service to get them on their way. We have chosen a name to keep the spirit of Nottingham’s Robin Hood well alive.”

The application is currently pending consideration by Nottingham City Council. Spankies was renamed in a nod to its much-loved much-loved predecessor when the venue was called Spanky Van Dyke’s.

Spanky Van Dyke’s closed after a party on New Year’s Eve in 2017 after seven years. But the venue reopened as Albert’s which sadly closed and the bar reopened as Spankies.
