Mesa Hockley – Fusion food for the masses

Mesa in Hockley, Nottingham is the newest restaurant in town. Located on Goose Gate in the old Pizza Express building, it is almost unrecognisable. The place has been decorated beautifully with an industrial theme, with plenty of plants making the restaurant feel bright and airy. There is a new open kitchen so you can watch…

Bills Restaurant – Nottingham

Earlier this week I was invited to Bills Restaurant on Queen Street in Nottingham to take a tour of their newly revamped restaurant and try some new dishes. I love Bills, the food is always really good, there is always a good atmosphere and the surroundings have always been really cool. Previously it was very…

Bills Restaurant – Nottingham

Earlier this week I was very kindly invited to Bill’s Restaurant on Queen Street in Nottingham to try out their new menu. I have visited a couple of times for brunch (you can read my review HERE) but haven’t had dinner here yet. I’m not sure why Bill’s Nottingham slips my mind whenever I am…

The Calcutta Club – Nottingham

Now I don’t profess to know anything about Indian cuisine, my palate is not at all refined. I do however love a blooming good Korma or Tikka Masala. That’s about my level of curry knowledge if I’m honest. So when I was invited to the Calcutta club on Maid Marian Way I was excited to…

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…

Sushimania All you can eat – Nottingham

A few weeks ago I wrote about how Sushimania had opened in Nottingham. I ordered a takeaway one lunch time to try it out. Read about it HERE. One of the main reasons Sushimania has been so popular in Nottingham is that it offers an ‘all you can eat’ sushi experience for ¬£16.80! It sounds…

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…

Oaks – Nottingham

Oaks Restaurant at 2 Bromley Place closed at the start of December due to a fire in their kitchen extractor fan. Because of the time of year and the complexity of the system, it took until this month for them to reopen. I absolutely loved Oaks before the closure (read my previous review HERE) and…

Las Iguanas – Nottingham

I was invited to Las Iguanas, Nottingham¬†last week week to try out their new menu. Now, I have to be honest, this is the first time I have been to a Las Iguanas, even though it is right next door to work. With this in mind I can’t comment on the changes to the menu…

PizzaStorm – Nottingham

As some of you may know, Inferno Pizza has now re-branded to PizzaStorm. The speedy pizza restaurant has had a complete re-brand and looks amazing. Changes have been made to both the design of the restaurant and the menu and it seems that it is mostly for the better. With 44 toppings to choose from,…
