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

The Marrakesh, Nottingham City Centre

The set lunch menu at The Marrakesh in Chapel Bar offers a Moroccan, Lebanese or fish menu that includes 2 mezze dishes and a main course for you to mix and match. We both opted for the Lebanese menu, I went for the humus (spelled this way on the menu?!) and tabouleh salad to start… Continue reading The Marrakesh, 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

Alchemilla, Nottingham City Centre

Alchemilla has been long anticipated since its announcement – a fine dining restaurant? On Derby road? By Sat Bains’ protege Alex Bond? Well, doesn’t that just sound delightful! Eager to get a sneak preview into what the food might be like, we went to (and reviewed) Alex Bond’s supper club at Wired Cafe, that he… Continue reading Alchemilla, 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

Warsaw Diner, Nottingham City Centre

We’ve long heard stories about Warsaw Diner and its legendary breakfast menu, however they only serve until midday and, as we are chronically lazy people at the weekend, we’re not usually out and about before lunch. However, after a recent holiday a bout of jet lag had us sat bolt upright at such an ungodly… Continue reading Warsaw Diner, 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
