Nakama Pop Up – Nottingham

For the last few months, the Nakama pop up has been dominating my social media with pictures of delicious food. Last week I was fortunate to head to Adams Restaurant for their May pop up. Nakama Restaurant, run by¬†Nottingham’s award winning Chefs Paul Thacker (Chino Latino)¬† and Hira Thakur (World Service), is an Asian inspired…

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…

Ginsecco @ The Playhouse – Nottingham

A couple of weeks ago I went down to the Ginsecco pop up evening at The Nottingham Playhouse Bar & Kitchen. A promise of 6 tapas style courses of British food with a twist, paired with 6 cocktails from the Ginsecco guys… Why wouldn’t I go?! Ginsecco is opening this summer in the Cornerhouse, and…

Filmore & Union – Nottingham

Filmore & Union have recently opened in the Victoria Centre, inside John Lewis. Set up initially by a lady called Adele, a former wellness clinic owner, the ethos is around healthy food and everything in moderation. I mean, you can’t be 100% healthy all the time can you? Adele states on the website that she…

Chai Walla- Bath

Whilst wandering the streets of Bath, Eleanor and I came across Chai Walla. A tiny independent Indian street food hut, sandwiched between Sainsbury’s and a Peri Peri chicken restaurant on Monmouth Street, the scent of Indian spices could be found from far down the road. Thankfully we got there as soon as lunchtime arrived and…

Koh Thai Tapas – Bath

During our stay in Bath (read all about it here) Eleanor and I had a massive craving for Thai food. Koh Thai Tapas restaurant was footsteps from where we were staying and on our second night we ventured out to try it out. Located just metres from the city centre on Broad Street, it is…

24 hours in Bristol

This weekend, Eleanor and I planned on heading to Bath for the weekend (Find out what we got up to HERE). We decided to make a whistle stop tour of 24 hours in Bristol to see her lovely friend Lauren. Lauren lives about a 5 minute drive from the city centre and as we arrived…

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…

Sushimania – Nottingham

A few weeks ago Sushimania opened up right round the corner from my work. I did wonder whether with the pre-existing Yo Sushi and Bonsai to name but two, would there be room for another sushi restaurant in the city? Located in the old Ask Italian restaurant in Chapel Bar, Sushimania has a small entrance…
