Moulin Rouge – Fish and Chips on Trinity Square

The Moulin Rouge Restaurant on Trinity Square was an interesting and unplanned spot that I visited this week for a plate of Fish and Chips. It was a spur of the moment choice. I really didn’t want to sit out on the street in the dark on a damp bench to scoff down my chips….

Bunk Dogs – Icelandic Beer Braised Hot Dogs

Bunk Dogs in Nottingham is located just off Bridlesmith Gate, down the hill on Pepper Street by Peppers Rocks. I had seen the bright red neon sign in the distance as I was walking by and was drawn in by the possibility of a Hot Dog. On the website and on the board attached to…

Sexy Mama Love Cicchetti, and so do I!

Sexy Mama Love Cicchetti on Carlton Street in Hockley is the latest offering from Edin Gondzica. They are serving up some excellent classic small plates of Cicchetti style food (think Italian Tapas) and are well worth a visit. It gently reinvents the space formerly known as “Edin’s Natural Kitchen”. I suppose that this is just…

Oscar and Rosies – Still the Best Pizza in Nottingham

I love the Pizza at Oscar and Rosie’s, seriously it is the best pizza in Nottingham, and I have been telling everyone that since 2013, and I would defend that belief against anyone who suggests otherwise with a passion. When I first met Olly Hunter and his first lovely Pizza Oven called Bertha, he was…

Kayal Business Lunch – The Thali

  Kayal is one of the restaurant stalwarts on Broad Street in Nottingham. They serve up Southern Indian style food and are a pretty well thought of when you talk about where to go for an Indian meal in the Nottingham Curry scene. They are also one of the spots that we seem to have…

Fox and Grapes in Sneinton Market – Beer and Pizza

The Fox and Grapes in Sneinton Market is one of the latest pubs to open up in Nottingham under the Castle Rock Brewery umbrella. This particular opening back in September was most welcome as it saw the re-emergence of a Public House that has been located at this spot since the 1830’s. In recent times…

  The Toll Bar is the latest resident of the pub space at Tollhouse Hill  by the big roundabout that joins up Maid Marian Way, Derby road and Lower Parliament Street. It has been back open about a couple of weeks now and it is offering up Real Ales, Pieminister Pies,  and 200 degrees coffee…

Wigflex Chicken and Waffles Pop-up at Nottingham Street Food

Wigflex were at the Nottingham Street Food market this weekend hosting a ‘Chicken and Waffles’ pop-up. Their Facebook page said that it was just going to be a ‘one-off’ event. I suppose that depending on how successful they felt it had gone they might carry on? 🙂 I love a bit of Chicken and Waffles…

Vegan ‘Fish and Chips’ at The Peacock

The Peacock at the foot of Mansfield Road in Nottingham is a fantastic Victorian Pub serving a decent selection of Real Ales. Last year they made the decision to launch a Vegan menu which in my mind was quite a brave decision. This week we finally came in to try it out,  my partner in…

Slurping Bowls of Pho at the Bun Mii Vietnamese cafe

Bun Mii Vietnamese Café on George Street is one of the newest additions to the Asian dining scene in Nottingham. I popped over at the weekend to try them out as I heard a few whispers on the street that there was a place in town serving authentic Vietnamese food that I really needed to…
