Johnny Pusztai in front of his handmade pink Himalayan salt fridge at 'The Snobby Butcher'

Award-winning butcher Johnny Pusztai has finally opened his eagerly awaited ‘Snobby Bistro’. After three decades of supplying meat from his shop on Mansfield Road, he’s trying his hand at serving up hot meals.

‘The Snobby Butcher’, previously J.T Beedham & Sons, currently supplies some of Nottingham’s best restaurant’s, including Hart’s and the two Michelin-starred Sat Bains. But now, Pusztai wants ‘a piece of the pie’.


The bistro has been a long time coming for Pusztai, who has extended his premises, so he can now sit up to thirty guests in his shop.


“The product comes from the farm, goes into the butchers, and then straight into the restaurant, so the customers know it’s top quality.”

Pusztai has promised themed evenings every few weeks, including Indian, Barbecue and Hungarian nights, just to name a few. The son of a Hungarian immigrant, Johnny is constantly drawing inspiration from his heritage as he serves up dishes like goulash and porkolt in his new bistro.

‘The Snobby Bistro’ is at 556 Mansfield Road and is open Tuesday-Saturday.
