Merchant’s at the Lace Market Hotel, Nottingham 

The only problem with doing this blog is that you feel you need to constantly be trying different places to eat so never return to your favourites.

The Curious Townhouse, Nottingham – launch event 

You may have read our previous review for The Curious Manor in Trinity Square, where the food wasn’t too bad but the try-too-hard ‘kitsch’ decor left us rolling our eyes. We received an invite to attend the launch event of their sister bar (or “twisted auntie” as one member of staff described it) and so… Continue reading The Curious Townhouse, Nottingham – launch event

Brunch at the Curious Manor, Nottingham 

We’ve eaten at Curious Manor before, but haven’t returned since it first opened. We were initially put off by it trying too hard to be off-beat and quirky rather than concentrating on great food (the roast we had was a little style over substance). However, waking up one Saturday with a hangover-fuelled need for a… Continue reading Brunch at the Curious Manor, Nottingham
