Breakfast at The Picnic Basket

I love the Picnic Basket on Carrington Street! I always pick this place over the nearby chains if I want a cup of tea and a sandwich. When we are getting the train out of town it is my first stop in the morning for a bacon cob which comes with a free cup of…

Happy Dough Lucky – Excellent Neapolitan Style Pizza

  Happy Dough Lucky have taken over The Lace House Bar in the Eastern Quarter with a Pop-up restaurant serving up some really quite decent Pizza. I had heard on the very low hanging Grapevine back in December that they were up and running with a very soft launch and that they were going to…

Southern Fried Chicken and Waffle Burger at The Canal House

The Canal House on Canal Street in Nottingham, next to the Canal (spot the theme in the thread) is a great pub for sampling Ale. I really don’t come here often enough considering the excellent selection of beers that they stock. The rumour that the sole reason is that you have to walk several flights…

Bulgogi Rice Bowl at TimeOut Cafe

The Sign on the Board outside the TimeOut Café on Wheeler Gate suggested that “It’s Rice Bowl o’clock” and you know what just for once I agreed and let the advertising win 🙂 Well to be honest about half of these posts start with some sort of chalkboard or sign leading me into somewhere to…

Sunday Lunch at The Botanist in West Bridgford

The Botanist in West Bridgford has been open on ‘our avenue’ for about 4 months now. This Gincentric chain moved into the space vacated by ‘Fire and Ice’ back in October and is to be honest exactly the sort of place that West Bridgford deserves. I got older last week so as a reward for…

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…
