The End of Notts Foodie

After 4 years I have taken the decision to finish the Notts Foodie blog. It wasn’t an easy decision and I’m grateful for everybody’s support, especially local press who are fantastic at supporting the blogging community. I’m ending this chapter of my life as I feel I have accomplished everything I set out to do,…

Vietcentric Vietnamese Cooking Class

Sneinton Market’s Vietnamese Haven I was invited down to Sneinton Market recently to try out one of the latest food offerings, Vietcentric. You may have smelt the spices of this Vietnamese venue without even realising it as you’ll find them participating in the Friday night stalls on Avenue B. Sneinton Market is not somewhere I…

Bar + Block Review

Hi all, I was invited down to Bar + Block, the new steakhouse that’s opened up at the top of Maid Marian Way, on the roundabout and underneath Premier Inn. It’s part of the Whitbread Group who own brands such as Premier Inn, Beefeater and Costa. I didn’t actually realise this until I did a…

Whitby & Robin Hood’s Bay

Hi all, I recently ventured to the east coast to Whitby, somewhere I’ve never been before but have heard a lot about. My boyfriend and I bought a tent a couple of years ago but after one measly camping trip I booked us in to Robin Hood’s Bay to try and get some more out…

New Art Exchange Cafe Review

Hi all, I was invited down to The New Art Exchange in Hyson Green (just next to Asda and diagonal to Forest Fields) to try some of their new food offerings. I was sold when they mentioned that their chef had created some Nepalese dumplings. I am a huge fan of Nepalese food and this…

Nakama Pop Up Review

Hi all, Hopefully you’ve noticed the number of pop ups which have been hitting the city, they seem to be one of the new trends and a way for chefs to test their menus and Nottingham’s appetite before diving straight into a full venue. This pop up is about Nakama, who have been doing them…

August Moon Tea Review

Hi all, I was invited down to a blogger get together organised by my friends over at RSVIP, a networking company.  The evening was a Chinese Tea Ceremony and it would last around 1.5-2 hours with a selection of teas, meditation and snacks. I was up for it as it sounded completely different from anything…

Anoki Nottingham Review

Hi all, Anoki was one of those places that I’ve heard of, walked past and it had been recommended to me numerous times but it still took me 3 years to visit (or 10 if you count the whole time I’ve been in Nottingham). It’s reputation is good but its location is just a bit…

Hockley Arts Club Review

Hi all, Recently, Hockley Arts Club introduced a new food menu as their focus is to try and become known for food as well as their cocktail offerings – they want something that looks funky but also tastes good. To launch their new menu they hosted a blogger’s night and I was invited along. I immediately…

Hartleys Review

Hi all, I recently met up with a friend for a quick bite to eat in town. We wanted a no-frills kind of venue that was chilled, served food and allowed us to have a good catch up. We chose Hartleys, the cafe on the corner of Broad street with a cow out front. First…

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…
