“Sat Bains's protégé has done good” – having taken over this “modish” Victorian coach house on the Park Estate (just outside the city centre) in 2017, chef Alex Bond's “wonderful natural and plant-focused eatery” rates mention alongside that of his former mentor nowadays and again receives raves for its “fabulous” food (showcased through five-, seven- or ten-course tasting menus).

“A great addition to the city’s food scene, whose food is getting better and better” – Alex Bond’s “restored Georgian stables” on the Park Estate (a little way outside the city-centre) opened in summer 2017 and his “amazing and very creative” approach and “modish” design makes it Nottingham’s hottest rising culinary star of the moment. You can eat from either a five-, seven- or ten-course tasting menu (everyone at the table should have the same option) and results are “exceptional”.

“A fantastic and innovative addition to the Nottingham restaurant scene” – Alex Bond’s summer 2017 newcomer occupes a “spacious, historic coach house” a mile or two north east of the city-centre on the borders of The Park Estate. “The only offer is of a five-, seven- or ten-course tasting menu” (everyone at the table is requested to go for the same one). “It’s pushing for excellence” in an ambitious, pushing-the-outside-of-the-envelope kind of way, and “getting better each time” providing some “outstanding combinations of flavours and textures”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"An ambitious and adventurous meal that exceeded my expectations. Less even that Sat Bains - a couple of the best dishes I've eaten this year (the mackerel for example), but also a a couple of duds. I wearied towards the end because of the sheer volume of food ... mostly my fault I know. "
