Your personally tailored experience begins the second you walk through the door. You choose your table, each one named after a famous Soul singer or group of yesteryear.
You choose your drink, bought swiftly to the table by your designated drinks waitress, you choose your food, all freshly cooked on the premises by our team of experienced chefs and finally, whilst waiting for your food to arrive piping hot at the table, you choose what you want to hear from the selection of vinyl Soul and Motown classics on our free-play 1960s Wurlitzer jukebox. It doesn't have to be a special occasion .... we'll take care of that!
In 2010 after a succesful 5 years in the centre of Nottingham The Soulville Steakhouse Company Ltd decide to open their second restaurant, and where better than the site of the former "Green Room" in Chesterfield.
If it ain't broke - don't fix it! as they say, so the new restaurant is a carbon copy of her older sibling ..... Classic Lambretta in the window, Soul & Motown memorabilia on every wall, music from an original 1964 Wurlitzer jukebox and fresh home cooked food to tried and tested recipes.
The Soulville Chesterfield sits in the bottom corner of the historic "The Yards" It is a myriad selection of old Victorian buildings that were originally right on the edge of the notorious Chesterfield slums known as "The Dog Kennels". They sat opposite the old Municipal Hall when Beetwell Street ended at the crossroads of South place and South Street. These filthy and overcrowded slums were finally demolished completely in 1912 at the personal expense of local Mayor Charles P Markham. The Municipal Hall itself lasted another 50 years but followed suit in 1965.
The enormous wooden arched doors leading out into Falcon Yard tell us that part of the building at least was probably a stable, we think maybe for the old horse drawn fire engine ... but I guess we'll never know!
Everyone knows that The Soulville (Chesterfield) is an enormous building spread over two floors .... but did you know the upstairs is a Function Room with its own dancefloor and Jukebox?
