Inferno – Nottingham (part two) 

Already the best place to grab a pizza in 180 seconds, Inferno launched their ‘craft your own salad’ this week. Perfect for this warm weather, so I headed down today to try it out. (Check out my review of their pizzas here 😍) Whenever I go to a restaurant or cafe for a salad, I am always…

Yamas – Nottingham

It was my lovely friend Chloe’s birthday last week, and so we dropped in to one of my favourite restaurants, Yamas Meze & Tapas for dinner. Yamas is located in Hockley on Thurland Street, serving gorgeous, freshly prepared Greek meze dishes and fantastic customer service. It’s an intimate, dark restaurant with a small downstairs and…

La Parisienne – Southwell

It was a lovely sunny day on bank holiday Monday when I headed to La Parisienne in Southwell. I have been on a few dates with a lovely, if very quiet, guy that lives in the town and so I wanted to see his home turf. He picked the place, not too far from the…

Bills – Nottingham

A fair few weeks ago now, my friends and I went for brunch at Bills Restaurant on Queens Street in the city centre. I had an amazing lunch there last year, and knowing they did a breakfast menu too, we hopped on over. I love the decor of this place, and the atmosphere is always really…

Loves Cocktails – Nottingham

From Monday 24th to Sunday 30th April, Nottingham plays host to the Loves Cocktails Festival throughout the city. Described as ‘Seven days of mixing, shaking, creating, drinking, tasting, clinking, debating and sipping across some of the city’s coolest bars, restaurants, and venues’ it’s right up my street! It’s the chance to explore and celebrate as many cocktails (responsibly)…

Kaspas – Nottingham

Kaspa’s are a chain of exciting new dessert houses that offer the world’s favourite hot and cold desserts under one roof… That’s what their website states so I wanted to see if it was true.

Bierkeller / Around the World Bar – Nottingham

I have been excitedly anticipating the opening of Bierkeller on Friar Lane for weeks, so when a friend suggested a catch up dinner yesterday I was looking forward to heading down to check out the new venue.

Bierkeller – Nottingham

With all the cocktail bars, BBQ joints and pizza restaurants that have opened in the last year, Nottingham needed some diversity! This has come in the form of Bierkeller Entertainment Complex on Friar Lane, due to open to the public on 17th March. Shooters Bierkeller, the national chain, houses 3 totally different ‘destinations’ all under…

The Townhouse – Arnold

I’ve been to The Townhouse a few times on client meetings for a quick drink but have never eaten. It’s been on my radar for nearly a year, so when a friend suggested dinner this week, I jumped at the chance to go here. It’s situated on Front Street, the main road in Arnold. The car…

4550 miles from Delhi – Nottingham

I’ve been to 4550 miles from Delhi a few times and always found it really lovely. It’s usually the sort of place my friends and I go for a special occasion. The staff are really lovely and nothing ever seems like too much trouble. I’m always greeted like a regular, although I don’t frequent enough…

Sherwood Manor – Carrington

I don’t hide the fact that I LOVE pub chains. Sherwood Manor, part of the Hungry Horse chain, serves HUGE meals at low prices, perfect for the day before payday when you can’t be bothered with cooking or washing up.  Don’t expect the best food in the world, but do expect decent pub food, huge…
