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

George’s Great British Kitchen, Nottingham City Centre

Determined to eat healthily throughout January, George‘s was actually 5th on our list of places to eat lunch. Due to our first choice places being closed, full up or simply not having much food left (we’re looking at you yet again, Clean Cut Kitchen!) we ended up lunching at George’s assuming that we could get… Continue reading George’s Great British Kitchen, Nottingham City Centre

Healthy January: Yo Sushi, Nottingham City Centre

Yes, it’s happening. We’re jumping on the ol’ resolution bandwagon and trying to combat a December filled with far too many over indulgences. I’ve been following Weight Watchers for a while now (which means Stu pretty much has no choice but to as well!) and have still managed to lose a hefty amount of chub… Continue reading Healthy January: Yo Sushi, Nottingham City Centre

Oscar and Rosie’s, Nottingham city centre

We recently met with a couple of mates for lunch and, with one being vegan, we had to think a little harder about where to eat with a range of options. Although we’re aware of Nottingham’s fairly good reputation for such inclusivity, honestly we’ve never had to consider finding anywhere with a balanced amount of… Continue reading Oscar and Rosie’s, 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

Brunch at Outpost Coffee Shop, Nottingham City Centre

Outpost are making a name for themselves in Nottingham for their outstanding coffee, so when we were invited to try out their recently launched brunch menu we were there with knobs on. The shop is small but comfortable with achingly cool decor – you can easily relax the day away reading their plethora of coffee… Continue reading Brunch at Outpost Coffee Shop, Nottingham City Centre

Smiffy’s Smoke Shack at The Last Chance Saloon, Nottingham City Centre

*EDIT* Smiffy and his delicious bbq grub are no longer based at Last Chance Saloon, they now run the kitchen at The Southbank pub on Trent Bridge. We’ve not been so can’t attest to the same quality, but comments on the dishes still stand! ——————————————————- This is another one of those ‘should we/shouldn’t we’ blog… Continue reading Smiffy’s Smoke Shack at The Last Chance Saloon, Nottingham City Centre

Pizza Storm, Nottingham City Centre

We both love a good pizza but have never visited Inferno before – mainly due to a concern that pizza isn’t a healthy option for Emily and that my being let loose on over 50 ingredients could end in disaster. Like Subway, the premise is that you move down the line adding various sauces and ingredients… Continue reading Pizza Storm, Nottingham City Centre

Tough Mary’s Bakehouse, Nottingham city centre

Take a stroll up Derby road and, aside from the copious amount of furniture shops, you can’t fail to spot the fluorescent yellow bakery Tough Mary’s. Much like a ray of sunshine breaking through grey clouds, it brightens the area and some of the local, homemade treats are sure to brighten your day.  We aimed… Continue reading Tough Mary’s Bakehouse, Nottingham city centre

The Lobster Pot, Nottingham City Centre

We love a good seafood restaurant so The Lobster Pot on Mansfield Road has been on our list for a while. Seduced by a lobster platter special and with the arrival of summer lightening our appetites, we figured it’s about time we dug into some delicious seafood. The Lobster Pot has been run by a… Continue reading The Lobster Pot, Nottingham City Centre

Son of Steak, Nottingham City Centre

We first visited Son of Steak in their opening week after seeing a load of social buzz that piqued our curiosity. Son of Steak is a Mitchell & Butler restaurant, who also own the Harvester that it replaced in Trinity Square. Our foodie-snobbiness usually restricts us from liking most chain eateries (pass the artisan sourdough, daahhling)… Continue reading Son of Steak, Nottingham City Centre

Le Mistral, Nottingham city centre

After wracking our brains for somewhere different to go for dinner in the city centre, we settled on Le Mistral who offer a ‘2 dine with wine for £29’ deal Sunday – Wednesday. For this, you get 2 main courses and a carafe of house wine.  Le Mistral is styled like a traditional French restaurant, in… Continue reading Le Mistral, Nottingham city centre
