Summary

A very characterful and slightly offbeat restaurant profiting from the panelled interior of The Nottingham Club, whose building it shares, plus a “very romantic” courtyard garden come summer; its “very, very interesting food” doesn’t always come off, but equally serious quibbles about it are absent.

Summary

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”.

Summary

“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!”

Summary

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.
