We’re going all the way from Indonesia to the land of Stars and Stripes as we say goodbye to Nada Budaya and hello to Bohns Best Burgers underneath Brewdog, in Hockley. If you thought the name of this bbq burger joint is pronounced like ‘bones’ then you would be very silly indeed, Bohns actually rhymes… Continue reading Bohns Best Burgers, 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

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

Baresca Nottingham: Sunday roast

A Sunday roast is without a doubt our favourite meal of the week and we’ve tried most of what the city has to offer in search of the best roast in Nottingham.  As a result, were always looking out for one that we’ve not tried yet and our interest is definitely piqued by something a little… Continue reading Baresca Nottingham: Sunday roast

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

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
