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

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

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

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

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

Iberico World Tapas Nottingham

Iberico World Tapas is renowned in Nottingham (as well as in Derby) for being at the top of the tapas game and being particularly well suited to a special occasion. The vibe is ‘tapas-but-not-as-you-know-it’ as we see traditional Catalan tapas such as Iberico ham and patatas bravas balanced with more exotic dishes influenced by Asian… Continue reading Iberico World Tapas Nottingham

Hart’s hotel and restaurant Nottingham

Situated up on Standard Hill in the city centre, Hart’s will do you a great meal – no doubt about it. Although a great place for special occasions due to its reputation for excellent food, Hart’s makes its higher-end fare a little more accessible with a generous set lunch menu (that is available on Saturdays too! Yay!)… Continue reading Hart’s hotel and restaurant Nottingham

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
