Nada Budaya Review

Hi all, If you’ve been to Broad Street you’ll know of all the popular places – Broadway cinema, Revs, Brew Dog and El Capo to name a few. Well, did you know that underneath Brew Dog there’s a Malaysian restaurant? That’s where Nada Budaya lives and you should probably make room in your diary to visit. First…

Harts Review

Hi all, If you’ve read my blog before you’ll know I’m a sucker for a good taster menu. I’ve done them at Chino Latino, new comer Alchemilla and most recently Merchants restaurant. When Hart’s invited me down to try their taster menu to celebrate turning 20, I jumped at the chance. This taster menu is…

Rub Review

Hi all, I was invited back to Rub to try some of their latest epic food concoctions. I’ve been twice before, the most recent was to try their cocktail menu and the first time was when it first opened, we had a massive platter of food for four people and we ended up taking a…

Merchants Restaurant Review

Hi all, I was invited down to The Lace Market Hotel to try out the taster menu in the Merchants restaurant and have a pre drink in the Saint bar. The Saint bar is by far my favourite cocktail venue in Notts, it’s understated with classic recipes rather than sugar-filled recipes of newer concoctions. View…

Roxy Ball Room Review

Hi all, I was asked to try out Roxy Ball Room by their PR team to have a go on some of their games and enjoy their food. The venue has three different ball games to try (hence “ball room”) which are: table tennis, pool or beer pong. Each is priced by the half hour…

Playhouse Bar and Kitchen with Ginsecco

Hi all, I was invited down to try out a Ginsecco pop up evening at The Nottingham Playhouse Bar and Kitchen. The evening promised a great six course menu that had been created to pair perfectly with Ginsecco cocktails. For those who are unaware, Ginsecco will be opening in summer 2018 on the third floor…

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…

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…
