A couple of weeks ago my friend Mark and I headed to Mapperley Top for a bite to eat. I hadn’t noticed The Old Flower Shop before, and it turns out that it’s only been open a few months.
We weren’t massively hungry so decided to order a few light bites, and share.
We opted for hummous with roasted garlic, pigs in blankets, tri-colour nachos and crispy calamari (always a favourite of mine)
The pigs in blankets just weren’t my thing. I like my bacon crispy and this was definitely not. It was kind of slimy if I’m honest. The sausage was full of flavour but the bacon let it down. I also wasn’t keen on the marrow gravy.
The atmosphere was great and I’d definitely go back. Overall I really enjoyed the food, and the staff were so attentive.
