Alchemilla – Nottingham

On Friday evening I embarked on a bit of an adventure. Something I had never done before, something I had been looking forward to for weeks, something to tick off my bucket list. At 8pm sharp Gaz & I arrived at Alchemilla Restaurant on Derby Road for their 10 course tasting menu. The brainchild of…

Loch Fyne – Christmas Menu

On Thursday I was very kindly invited to Loch Fyne to try out their Christmas Menu. Those of you that read my tweets will know that I am fully on board with Christmas already, even through it is only the 1st of December. So, what better way to celebrate the start of the festive season…

The Walton – Nottingham

I was very lucky to be invited to the new menu launch at The Walton Hotel last night on Derby Road. I have walked past the outside of the building maybe a hundred times but had never been in before. I don’t know why, maybe I thought it was too posh for me! I always…

Corner Stone – Sherwood

A couple of weeks ago the lovely Notts Foodie and I went on a ‘date’. We have known of each other for months and correspond on Twitter a fair bit but until a recent event we hadn’t actually met. So in an effort to make a new friend who loves food as much as I…

Revolution Hockley – Nottingham

I was invited by the lovely people at Revolution Hockley to try out the new menu available this week. Revolution is situated at 7 Broad St, Nottingham, NG1 3AJ, next door to Rough Trade and opposite the Broadway.  Revolution is a chain of individually styled bars across the country. At the last count they have…

The Botanist – West Bridgford

Earlier this week I was extremely lucky to be invited to the press/bloggers launch night of The Botanist, on Bridgford Road, West Bridgford. I took my lovely friend Chloe as my plus one. Having visited venues in both Birmingham and York, I was super excited to find out it was opening in my hometown. The…

Nottingham Secret Dinner Club

A couple of weeks ago an email landed in my inbox, inviting me to the first Nottingham Secret Dinner Club on 28th September. No other details, just ‘please confirm your attendance’. Well, you can imagine how excited I was, and immediately confirmed I would be joining. It wasn’t until early this week that I was…

Revolucion De Cuba – Nottingham

I bloody love Revolucion De Cuba. Where else can you be casually having a cocktail on a Saturday night and bump in to a lady dressed like an exquisite carnival queen? Revolucion De Cuba is located at 26-28 Market Street, round the corner from the Theatre Royal. The huge building is entered through a door…

Festival of Food and Drink – Clumber Park

The Festival of Food and Drink at Clumber Park is hands down one of my favourite food festivals of the year. The drive through the park is extremely long and winding, and when the sun is shining it’s a lovely drive. Parking is super close to the entrance making it very easily accessible to anyone…

Zaap Thai – Nottingham

Having spent 3 weeks in Thailand back in November, I was craving a taste of Thai yesterday lunchtime. Thai food is something I hadn’t really explored much before last year, but my holiday obviously changed that! I can’t handle a lot of heat in my food and it had made me reluctant to try new…

Turtle Bay – Nottingham

Turtle Bay, the Caribbean restaurant at the Cornerhouse, is a fantastic place to enjoy happy hour. 241 cocktails 4pm – 7pm and after 10pm, it’s great value for money. You have to have the same cocktail for both but it doesn’t really matter. My friends and I had a LOOOOOOONG overdue catch up this evening,…

The Botanist is coming to Nottingham!

New bar The Botanist will open its doors to the public on Monday 9th October in West Bridgford. The stunning concept will transform the old Fire and Ice building on Bridgford Road, the most prominent among the main stretch of bars and restaurants leading into the heart of West Bridgford.
