“A stalwart of the Nottingham restaurant scene” near the castle, whose “clubby setting” owes much to the intriguing seventeenth century building and courtyard garden which it shares with The Nottingham Club. Its ambitious contemporary cuisine has always tended to divide opinion – exceptional to its fans but “somewhat overpriced and bland” to its foes (with the latter a bit more in evidence last year).

This “quirky” venue (very popular locally), which shares a 17th-century townhouse and its courtyard garden with The Nottingham Club (and has something of an old-fashioned sports pavilion vibe), scores consistently well for its “fantastic food” – much of it inspired by Far Eastern flavours – “excellent cocktails and a varied wine list”.

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.
