5. Iberico Spanish restaurant in Nottingham The Shire Hall, High Pavement - NG1
The extensive vaults of “an historic building in the Lace Market” house this “lovely” and lively haunt. “Nothing is too much effort for the staff”, who provide “clever” tapas dishes, many of them “exceptional”, all at very “reasonable prices”; “excellent” cocktails and wines too.
6. Restaurant Sat Bains British, Modern restaurant in Nottingham Lenton Lane - NG7
“You have to add this to your bucket list!” – Sat Bains’s famous restaurant-with-rooms won the No. 1 slot this year in our listing of Top-100 UK Restaurants. It certainly doesn’t win its accolades for its location – on the edge of a city-fringe industrial estate, surrounded by fly-overs and pylons (once memorably described by the chef himself as ‘like finding a diamond in a piece of turd’). But in culinary terms, “it’s an experience from start to finish”, delivering “out-of-this-world, quirky and offbeat” dishes, with “amazing flavours”. A seat at the chef’s table provides a particularly good trip, and – for those in search of something even more ‘experiential’ – in June 2015 Sat Bains opened Nucleus, a ‘restaurant within-a-restaurant’ with just 6 seats and its own dedicated kitchen.
7. Hart’s British, Modern restaurant in Nottingham Standard Hill, Park Row - NG1
Tim Hart’s “confident” ’90s brasserie near the castle is an unusually “discreet and efficient” modern brasserie, serving “totally reliable” modern cuisine in a “light and airy” (slightly “corporate”) setting. “For a business meal in particular, it’s pitched just right”.
8. The Larder on Goosegate British, Modern restaurant in Nottingham 1st Floor - NG1
A restaurant “above the original Boots shop, with large windows overlooking the busy Hockley nightlife” that's “going from strength to strength each year”; “the food is seasonal, often fairly local, and never disappointing”, while service is “just on the right side of relaxed”.
9. MemSaab Indian restaurant in Nottingham 12-14 Maid Marian Way - NG1
“There’s no shortage of good Indians in Nottingham, but MemSaab has nailed it!” – this central stalwart remains the city’s most popular curry house on account of its “tremendous, hearty and refined” cooking (some of it “very unusual”) and service that’s “always very attentive”.
10. La Rock French restaurant in Sandiacre 4 Bridge Street - NG10
“The best in the Nottingham area after Sat Bains” – a “small restaurant tucked away in a side street” where the food is “cooked creatively with a deal of originality” and staff are “friendly and knowledgeable”. Even sceptics are impressed – “they are trying to provide a really top class dining experience and nearly pull it off – high prices, but a brave attempt”.
