Notts Tweet Up – Revolucion De Cuba – Nottingham

I have been following @NottsTweetUp on twitter for months, intrigued as to what it was all about and whether I should head along. I haven't been running my twitter account for very long and my following is far smaller than my blog, so I wasn't sure if it was something I could get involved with….

Annie’s Burger Shack – Nottingham

I used to go to Annie's quite a lot before I started this blog, however it's been a while since I visited. A catch up with an old mate from outside Nottingham gave me the perfect excuse to revisit and see if it was as good as I remember. This place is synonymous for good…

Notts Street Food Club Gin And Jazz Night

I absolutely love Notts Street Food Club. I've been a few times both for lunch and dinner and the choice of cuisine is always fantastic. Open Friday to Sunday every week, it showcases amazing independent street food brands and alcoholic beverages, and seats 150 punters.  I admit that I'm usually drawn to the resident stand,…

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…

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…

Son of Steak – Nottingham

Son of Steak opened its doors a couple of weeks ago, and I headed down for the blogger event on behalf of my friend Gastronomic Gorman. You will find my review of the launch on her blog soon. Son of Steak is located in Trinity Square, where the old Harvester pub was. Owned by 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…

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. Situated on Maid Marian Way stands the bright pink eye catching american style diner. I have driven and walked past…

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. The multi-million pound entertainment complex looked amazing when the photos were released to the public a few weeks…
