2017 in food: our Nottingham restaurant highlights of the year

We have been fortunate enough to have some amazing meals this year in Nottingham, so thought we’d do a round up of some of our favourites (and a few a bits from further afield).

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.

As a result, we have enjoyed making and eating them at home, discovering Emily’s extraordinary ability to accidentally incinerate all meats other than… Continue reading Tom Brown’s Brasserie, Gunthorpe

The Old Flower Shop, Mapperley

For a rare venture outside of the city centre for a Sunday roast, we settled on The Old Flower Shop on Mapperley top after having our interest piqued by the online menu. The Old Flower Shop is fairly new and (believe it or not) located in an old florist, with a modern yet cosy interior.… Continue reading The Old Flower Shop, Mapperley
