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

Jamie’s Italian, Nottingham City Centre

Despite living in Nottingham for many years, we had never visited Jamie’s Italian until now. We hadn’t heard great things, but Sexy Mamma in Hockley isn’t living up to it’s initial levels of ‘wowzer’ of late, and we had an O2 Priority voucher code for a second main course for a quid. We decided to… Continue reading Jamie’s Italian, Nottingham City Centre

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

Las Iguanas, Nottingham City Centre

We were curious after seeing Las Iguanas launched a new menu on social media so decided to head down to a restaurant we’ve previously disliked. Funnily enough, we found ourselves accidentally sat next to a food blogger event that we weren’t actually invited to. Awkward. Trying to suppress the flashbacks of many a disappointing work… Continue reading Las Iguanas, Nottingham City Centre

The Harvester, Castle Marina Nottingham

“Have you ever been to a Harvester before?” was the greeting that met us as we entered Harvester at Castle Marina. “No” we lied through our false moustaches (as any self-respecting food snob would).* The truth is that we had been many moons ago in Birmingham and hadn’t enjoyed it so we hadn’t bothered again.… Continue reading The Harvester, Castle Marina Nottingham

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

Brown’s Sunday roast, Nottingham City Centre

There’s only one thing for it on a Sunday when you’re more than slightly fragile from the night before – a roast. We live just round the corner from Brown’s so I’m surprised it’s taken us this long to try their Sunday lunch. The restaurant was very busy indeed and, without a booking, we took… Continue reading Brown’s Sunday roast, 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

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

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
