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

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

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

Merchant’s new summer menu 2016

It has felt like summer has finally arrived in Notts (ok, ok, apart from the odd shower) and with the changing seasons, good restaurants will update their menus to bring you the best produce for that time of year. So, it’s out with the cottage pies and in with the lighter, fresher dishes that are… Continue reading Merchant’s new summer menu 2016

La Rock restaurant, Sandiacre

We visited La Rock in Sandiacre for my birthday as we wanted something extra special to celebrate – we had heard that La Rock would be perfect. It’s a little out of the way as we usually eat in or close to the city centre, but it was worth it! We arrived at 8pm and were seated upstairs in… Continue reading La Rock restaurant, Sandiacre

Merchant’s hotel and Restaurant

We bought a travel zoo voucher for two courses each from the a la carte with a glass of prosecco for £39. They also do a fixe prix lunch menu that is just as wonderful as the a la carte and they often have a deal on the usual voucher sites which are great to… Continue reading Merchant’s hotel and Restaurant
