Gusto Italian, West Bridgford

Westy-B isn’t a place we venture into very often as we live on the other side of town, but there are a list of gems to find, our favourites being La Storia for authentic, family-run Italian or Escabeche for a tasty take on tapas. We were invited over to see if we can pop Italian… Continue reading Gusto Italian, West Bridgford

Tipsy Afternoon Tea at Revolution, Cornerhouse

We were surprised to receive an invite to review the afternoon tea at Revolution (you know you’re Notts when you call it new Revs!) The bar is best known for it’s hen party atmosphere and crazy vodkas, not really the kind of place that you’d first consider for a relaxing, leisurely afternoon tea. It costs… Continue reading Tipsy Afternoon Tea at Revolution, Cornerhouse

Belgo, Nottingham City Centre

This was our 3rd visit to Belgo, and on both previous visits we had left feeling a bit underwhelmed, in our opinion the seafood didn’t match up to Loch Fyne. However, a 50% off deal in January, a love of mussels and with us keen to eat healthily, we headed there again. There are lots… Continue reading Belgo, Nottingham City Centre

Pieminister, Nottingham City Centre

Pies are great. Every British person knows this – from the humble chippy tea Pukka to the high-end beef wellington, there is a pie for every occasion so it may be a surprise to hear that we have only just got round to visiting Pieminister on Angel Row a good 18 months after opening. The things that… Continue reading Pieminister, Nottingham City Centre

Bar Iberico breakfast, Nottingham City Centre 

We’ve visited Bar Iberico a couple of times now but never really got the hype. We found it a bit too pricey to eat a la carte when compared to the express deal at the Iberico restaurant, which we adore.  However, anyone that follows their Instagram will know that their breakfast dishes always look drool-worthy… Continue reading Bar Iberico breakfast, Nottingham City Centre

Slug and Lettuce, Cornerhouse

Just to prove we are not complete restaurant snobs (and thanks to a 50% off food promotion on Mondays) we recently cast our hipster beards aside and went for food at the Slug and Lettuce near the Cornerhouse. I’ve never eaten there before, but Emily has and recommended we go for the small plates menu where you… Continue reading Slug and Lettuce, Cornerhouse

Toast bar at the National Video Game Arcade, Nottingham 

So, there’s a bar above the the National Video Game Arcade in Hockley that sells toast and is called Toast. A bar, that sells toast. Just toast. Funnily enough, we’ve never really fancied eating there/noticed it before but, in the midst of a Friday night drinking session with the third wheel (Ken) in tow, it… Continue reading Toast bar at the National Video Game Arcade, Nottingham

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

Be At One – cocktail bar launch, Nottingham

The newest addition to Nottingham’s ever exciting bar scene is cocktail chain Be At One, launching where Nirvana nightclub used to be in the Lace Market. We had an invite to sample the wares before the opening night so thought it would be rude not to!  For anyone that remembers falling/sleeping on the beds in… Continue reading Be At One – cocktail bar launch, Nottingham

Bar Iberico Nottingham – opening night event 

Iberico World Tapas in the Lace Market is one of our favourite restaurants, so ever since we clocked the whitewashed windows and the ‘Bar Iberico coming soon’ posters in Hockley, we’ve been impatiently waiting for it to open. YAY! A BAR! We had but three burning questions: How will it be different? Will it be as… Continue reading Bar Iberico Nottingham – opening night event
