El Capo Review

Hi all, I was invited down to try Nottingham’s newest Mexican restaurant, El Capo. Considering we were let down with the promise of Troperio turning into a Mexican I hadn’t heard much hype about this opening, which was a shame. It was safe to say I knew little about the venue or what I would…

Miller and Carter Review

Hi all, I love steak so when I heard about a Miller and Carter opening on Mansfield Road, about 20 minutes away from where I live, I was eager to book in and try. A few people have been and said that it’s some of the best steak they’ve had in a restaurant so I…

Alchemilla Review

Hi all, A new restaurant opened this year on Derby Road, just past Canning Circus on the right hand side. As soon as the opening was announced their bookings became quite hard to get so I opted for a week night to bag myself a table for two. I’d heard a lot of positive things…

Around the World Review

Hi all, I was invited down to Around the World to try out their offering. I’d not actually heard of the restaurant before so did a quick Google, it’s located at the old Walkabout site. This confused me slightly as I thought it was Bierkeller – turns out there’s actually three bars on three different…

La Rock Review

Hi all, For my birthday this year my boyfriend decided to treat me to La Rock, a restaurant that’s been on our hit list for quite a while. As I had a weekday birthday he was able to get me in on the actual day which made it an extra special night out. I didn’t…

Baresca (Vegan) Review

Guest Blog by Susan Hart, Nutrition Coach This blog is a little different as I’ve asked Susan Hart, a Nottingham-based nutrition coach (and fully-fledged vegan) to provide a view on one of Nottingham’s tapas bars: Baresca. I reviewed Baresca a year or so ago so it will be interested to see what it rates from…

The Parlour (Afternoon Tea) Review

Hi all, I wanted to take my boyfriend and his parents out for afternoon tea somewhere and I happened to stumble upon an offer that The Parlour were running on Groupon. It was essentially half price off the tea for four people and included all the standard sandwiches, cakes and unlimited tea to go around….

Five Guys Review

Hi all, Five Guys, a popular burger chain all the way from the US of A, popped up in Market Square a while back. I’d be shocked if you didn’t know somebody who loves this place and who didn’t get really excited when they opened – I knew a few of these so I had…

Red Dog Saloon Review

Hi all, Red Dog Saloon in the city centre recently got in touch to ask me to pop down and try their new menu. They offered me and a plus one chance to eat to our hearts content in favour of an honest review.* Red Dog popped up in 2016 as another American meat restaurant…

Masala Junction (Carrington) Review

Hi all, In 2016 Masala Junction opened in Carrington where the old Natwest used to be. It’s right on the corner as you head into Sherwood so it’s hard to miss. As soon as it opened I headed out to check out their menu but it didn’t get the juices flowing so I pushed it…

Veeno (Wine Tasting) Review

Hi all, It was my birthday in June (also Notts Foodie’s!) and my boyfriend took me for something different: wine tasting. I’ve always hated red wine as I believed it smelt like vinegar and tasted like feet. My boyfriend, on the other hand, loves the stuff and has always been disappointed that I don’t want…

Annie’s Burger Shack (Brunch)

Hi all, If you’ve read my blog before you’ll know that I’ve been to Annie’s before and have been pretty underwhelmed. In fact I appear to be one of those bloggers who doesn’t like a lot of the popular places as they tend to be very over-hyped! So when my boyfriend suggested we headed to…

Himalayan Inn (Arnold) Review

Hi all, The Himalayan Inn in Arnold has been open a while now and it’s a place I always go past on the bus (it’s above the furniture shop that’s adjacent to the Robin Hood and Little John). It’s also somewhere that I’ve never heard anybody talk about, even within the blogging world. As regular…

Mandarin Review

Hi all, I was looking for a decent place to take a few friends for a decent night out and somebody suggested Mandarin which is at the bottom of Hockley near the bowling alley. I’ve driven past it a few times but it’s always one that slips to the back of my mind as it’s…

Oaks (Sunday Roast) Review

Hi all, On my quest to find the best Sunday roast in Nottingham I tried our Oaks. Regular readers will know that I love Oaks and have been twice before, although only having reviewed it once. Their meats are quality, service is friendly and they have a secret tunnel to my favourite place: Chino Latino….
