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

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

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 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

The Herbet Kilpin, Nottingham

As we had friends over for the day, we thought we should probably  interrupt the drinking with some food. We’ve been to the Herbert Kilpin a number of times for the great selection of craft beer but we’ve never eaten there so thought we’d give it a whirl. We had brunch a just a few… Continue reading The Herbet Kilpin, 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

Nottingham Craft Beer Week #NCBW16

We spent the best part of Friday night and Saturday checking out some of the great events going on for Nottingham Craft Beer Week. We love a good craft beer so feel really lucky to be in a city with such great breweries, pubs and mad beer scientists. On Friday night the newly-refurbished Bunker’s Hill… Continue reading Nottingham Craft Beer Week #NCBW16
