Mowgli Indian Street Food, Nottingham City Centre

First of all, the amount of hilarious Jungle Book puns that easily present themselves in this review are often irresistible. For this, we apologise in advance. For a fairly new brand, Mowgli has grown really quickly with locations in Birmingham, Liverpool, Oxford and Manchester. The concept is small plates of Indian street food and authentic… Continue reading Mowgli Indian Street Food, Nottingham City Centre

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

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

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

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

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

Browns, Nottingham City Centre 

We’ve not visited Brown’s for a while as previously their inconsistency has been an issue. We have eaten fab food there before but also been disappointed in the past, so we tend to give it a miss when considering restaurant options. However, the double-whammy of a special new seasonal menu and the fact that it is… Continue reading Browns, Nottingham City Centre

The Frustrated Chef, Beeston

The Frustrated Chef has been on our radar for a while but we rarely get out of the city centre for food. The Beeston tapas restaurant was recommended to us by a friend so one Saturday lunchtime we hopped on the tram to check it out. The Frustrated chef offers a lunchtime set menu that includes 2 tapas dishes… Continue reading The Frustrated Chef, Beeston
