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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Bierkeller – Nottingham

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…
