Harts Restaurant – Nottingham

Hart’s Restaurant is somewhere I have always wanted to visit… in about 10 years time. The impression I have always had is that it is sophisticated fine dining that I will love, but not until I am older. I have no idea why I have this impression, maybe because whenever anyone tells me how much…

Mowgli Street Food – Nottingham

Mowgli in Nottingham has been on the cards for a while and last week it finally opened. Located in Hockley at 1 Stoney Street (The big pink building on the corner opposite Void and across the road from Ice Nine) it is a three storey building standing out from the crowd. Would Hockley, known for…

Revolution – Nottingham

Revolution at the Cornerhouse, the place you probably only go on a night out for cheap cocktails. With a massive bar and huge amount of seating it’s easy to see why this bar attracts a crowd of an evening. However until recently it wasn’t a place I would suggest to my friends for dinner. A…

Merchants Restaurant at The Lace Market Hotel

A couple of weeks ago, myself and Eleanor were invited down to Merchants Restaurant in the Lace Market Hotel to try out their new taster menu. A 5 course menu created by their new head chef Luke Holland, each dish is inspired by different events in Luke’s life, using different tastes to evoke personal memories….

The Lobster Pot – Nottingham

Last weekend was brilliant! My lovely parents made the 90 minute drive to come and spend the weekend with Eleanor and I. I miss them so much when I don’t see them, so it was lovely to have them here. To celebrate, we booked in to The Lobster Pot on Mansfield Road for Saturday evening…

The Head of Steam – Nottingham

The Head of Steam has opened today in Hockley, on the site of the old Missoula Bar. Centering around craft beer, the three storey building has been completely transformed into a funky, contemporary, chilled bar. My favourite part was the artwork dedicated to Nottingham. The booths at the back of the downstairs area are apparently…

Son of Steak – New menu launch

If you read my blog, you’ll know that I adore Son of Steak in Trinity Square. So much so that a quote from a previous blog post is emblazoned on their huge glass window. They are typically a steak restaurant but they ‘do things differently’ and are ‘rebellious’. Their points of difference in comparison to…

Bar Iberico – Take Two

A few months ago I wrote about my experience at Bar Iberico. I said that although the food was ok and the atmosphere was lively, I wouldn’t choose to return given the amount of tapas restaurants to choose from in Nottingham. A couple of months ago this changed. The Gaztronome absolutely raved about the place…

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…

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…

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…
