Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
Themes have remained consistent over the years in feedback on this quirky haunt, near the castle – it’s “relaxed, and not too formal”, its adventurous cuisine has its highpoints and low points, it can seem “expensive”, but locals in particular often tip it as “one of the best restaurants in Nottingham”.
“The outside tables are so pleasant” at this quirky venue, near the castle – a stylish haunt that’s long been one of the city’s most popular. Its adventurous cuisine inspires mixed feelings though – what is “always a delight” to fans, is to sceptics “overrated” – “it looks enticing, but lacks the level of flavour you’d expect!”
Preceded locally by a reputation for “very good food with exceptional contemporary twists”, this intriguing venue near the castle is a “stylish” sort of place, with a “beautiful courtyard”; it’s “pricey”, though, and standards have been a touch “variable” of late.
“In a lovely historic building, with ephemera from around the globe”, this professional “oasis” (with cute courtyard, and “excellent cocktails”) is a huge hit locally; the perennially ambitious cuisine “has misses as well as hits”, but fans say it’s worth persevering for when its “superbly innovative” ideas pay off.
World Service Restaurant Diner Reviews
"The service was excellent; the waiters especially were very friendly and happy to chat. The lighting is so dim it is hard to see the food, especially dark dishes on grey plates. The food is less good than the menu thinks it is. There is a large number of ingredients advertised in every dish but the flavours do not hang together, some are just sitting next to each other on the plates. For example my pigeon breast starter: the pigeon itself was beautifully cooked if a trifle undersalted, and many of the components of the dish worked well, but the grapes did nothing for it, and were just an unpleasant note when they popped in the mouth. Similarly in my lamb main course the kidneys were the best bit.The little bits of beetroot were cute but for some reason tasteless."
