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…

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…
