Brunch at Gusto, West Bridgford – review

Friday night drinks call for a Saturday morning refuel, right? My friend and I certainly think so. We love a post-night out breakfast trip, and we’ve worked our way through a few places in Nottingham city centre, but as I’ve just moved to West Bridgford this week, this was the perfect opportunity to try somewhere new.… Continue reading Brunch at Gusto, West Bridgford – review

Le Mistral, Nottingham – review

The ask: a restaurant fancy enough for a date on a Monday evening where I can wear a dress and heels without looking out of place and still eat good, reasonably priced food. The answer: Le Mistral! Tucked away in a quiet courtyard just a stone’s throw from the busy Market Square, Le Mistral is a French-style bistro… Continue reading Le Mistral, Nottingham – review

The Ned Ludd, Nottingham – review

After spending a weekend at home with my parents, we decided to get some lunch together in the city centre before they dropped me back off at my flat. They’re both vegetarian, so a little bit of consideration has to go into choosing where we go to eat. The Ned Ludd, located just off Market Square, seemed… Continue reading The Ned Ludd, Nottingham – review

The Lion, Farnsfield – review

If you’ve ever watched the TV show Gilmore Girls, you’ll no doubt have wondered whether somewhere like the town of Stars Hollow could possibly exist outside the world of fiction. Nowhere is so picturesque, surely? Well it turns out somewhere is, and North Notts is home to it: Farnsfield, a small village that is best described as absolutely adorable.… Continue reading The Lion, Farnsfield – review

Sexy Mamma Love Spaghetti, Nottingham – review

To say that this place is the talk of the city would be an understatement. Having popped up in Hockley only a few months ago, with no grand opening or online presence to announce itself (nothing but its endearing, if not somewhat bemusing name signposted out front), you’d be forgiven for assuming that Sexy Mamma Love Spaghetti isn’t a… Continue reading Sexy Mamma Love Spaghetti, Nottingham – review

Bonzai, Nottingham – review

Tucked away in Hockley, Bonzai could be easily missed. Unassuming from the outside, you enter to a beautifully vibrant and decorated interior. Offering authentic Japanese cuisine, the restaurant prides itself on the quality of its produce and the skill of its chefs. It’s small, so much so that the kitchen takes up a good part… Continue reading Bonzai, Nottingham – review

Nada Budaya, Nottingham – review

Nada Budaya is a restaurant I’ve long heard praise of but had never visited myself. Well, I finally managed to change that last night. The brainchild of Maziah Omar, it offers authentic Malaysian cuisine inspired by her personal heritage, right in the Lace Market area of Nottingham. Perfect! Nestled rather unusually beneath a BrewDog branch, you… Continue reading Nada Budaya, Nottingham – review

Annie’s Burger Shack, Nottingham – review

You could kinda say that Annie’s Burger Shack has become the pride of Nottingham over the last couple of years (after Robin Hood, the castle, and the equal parts terrific and terrifying ‘beach’ in the summer) The FOOD pride of Nottingham, anyway – which is funny, seeing as it’s homegrown in the good ol’ US of… Continue reading Annie’s Burger Shack, Nottingham – review

Bar Iberico, Nottingham – review

Hockley has long held the title of the coolest area of Nottingham. The edgier, more out there sibling to the Lace Market, it thrives with culture and creativity. The food offerings around here much adhere to that vibe, but with it comes a risk. New and different establishments aren’t always a success, and one particular premises… Continue reading Bar Iberico, Nottingham – review
