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

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

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

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

Warsaw Diner, Nottingham City Centre

We’ve long heard stories about Warsaw Diner and its legendary breakfast menu, however they only serve until midday and, as we are chronically lazy people at the weekend, we’re not usually out and about before lunch. However, after a recent holiday a bout of jet lag had us sat bolt upright at such an ungodly… Continue reading Warsaw Diner, 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 Roundhouse, Nottingham 

Having moved to the castle side of Nottingham, there’s a new host of restaurants in walking distance that we might not have ventured over to before. One these rediscovered gems is the Roundhouse. We popped in for the Sunday lunch menu, immediately taken aback with how busy it was – which has to be a good… Continue reading The Roundhouse, Nottingham

Griddle & Shake, Nottingham City Centre

We’ve never been massive burger fans. With many fast food offerings, a burger was simply a snack we’d eat on the go or pick up after a night out. However, Nottingham seems to have undergone a revolution of the humble burger with eateries like Annie’s and Five Guys turning the fast food burger concept into a gourmet… Continue reading Griddle & Shake, Nottingham City Centre
