The Bakehouse (Sherwood) Review

Hi all, I was invited down to The Bakehouse in Sherwood (a few doors down from The Crimson Tree) to try out their new small plates menu. It was a new idea for the company, that has become renowned for its bread, I was eager to try it out. First Impressions of The Bakehouse (Sherwood)…

Ye Olde Bell (Retford) Review

Hi all, I was recently contacted by Ye Olde Bell in Barnby Moor, Retford, to see if I wanted to try out their food offering and to have a look around their venue. The restaurant is part of a hotel and a fairly recent spa, the reviews online were good and I’ve seen a few…

Wildwood Review

Hi all, At  the end of 2017 I managed to head to a restaurant that’s been on my list for a while – Wildwood on King Street. It is a chain but before it came to Nottingham I had never seen one before and I found it intriguing. Their mission statement is “friendly staff to…

Happy Dough Lucky Review

Hi all, I was invited down by Happy Dough Lucky to try out their pop up in The Lacehouse. The restaurant is pizza-based and brings together flavours of the world. The owners actually spent time backpacking to find the best pizzas, food and spices so that they could make Happy Dough Lucky the best it…

Corner Stone Pizza Review

Hi all, I recently met up with a fellow food blogger, Will Flirt for Food, to investigate Corner Stone Pizza in Sherwood. The venue is a small glass box/shipping container down a side street which you’ve probably either noticed and wondered what it was or completely walked straight passed it. Neither of us had been…

10 Things Restaurants get Wrong

10 Things Restaurants Should Change This blog post is focused on things that I believe restaurants can improve on to make the dining out experience more pleasant, friendlier and more customer-focused. This list is my opinion and has been created based on my experiences as a customer, waitress and blogger. If you agree or disagree…

Revolucion De Cuba (Brunch)

Hi all, Every year Revolucion De Cuba change up their menu and I usually get invited down to try it out. In all honesty it’s been a little hit and miss (I think the word I used last time was inconsistent). The first time it was pure Cuban-inspired food and was brilliant, the next time…

Gusto (West Bridgford) Review

Hi all, I was invited down to try out Gusto in West Bridgford and see what it was all about. In all honesty, I didn’t know much about the brand and I’ve never been to one elsewhere in the country, but a lot of people I spoke to were pretty excited that one had opened…

HUNGER Review

Hi all, Those of you who follow me on social media will probably know that as well as food, I love to keep fit (they go hand in hand really!) which is why I’m loving the new phase of healthy restaurants that are popping up across the city. HUNGER is ran by two fit fanatics…

Nottingham Restaurants & Bars 2017

Hi all, This blog went down really well last year so I’ve decided to round up again. In essence, this year’s seen a huge number of venues opening (and closing) so I thought I’d put the new ones in one place for you to view. If you’re looking for my top rated restaurants or top bars…

Pizzastorm Review

Hi all, You may have noticed that Inferno has re-branded as Pizzastorm. It’s a quarter of a million pounds refurb to the Nottingham venue that’s less than 2 years old, some of the new changes that have occurred are: full refit of all seating areas and rebrand movement of condiments and ice cream stands (for…

Bread and Bitter Review

Hi all, A bunch of us went out a couple of weeks back to Mapperley Top. We were venturing for drinks and food so opted for Bread and Bitter, a Castle Rock venue, that promises both. We booked a table in advance as there were 8 of us and from previous experience I know it…

Tamatanga Review

Hi all, A couple of weeks ago I fancied a cheap night out that involved some form of curry. We were pretty last minute but managed to get a table at Tamatanga in the Cornerhouse. I’d not been here since I was a student which was many years ago so I didn’t really know what…

Revolution (Hockley) Review

Hi all, Revolution in Hockley (Old Revs) invited me down to try out their new menu. Before going I tweeted asking what people’s opinions were and they weren’t positive, the impression that people had seemed to be brown, generic, fast food. This actually surprised me as in my hay day I used to work at…

Rakki Rakkas Review

Hi all, Earlier this year Rakki Rakkas, a new Turkish takeaway and restaurant, opened up in Sherwood. It got quite a bit of press coverage in the Nottingham Post and the Lord Mayor opened it (I still find this a bit random). Anyway, after going past it on the bus a couple of times I…
