    A visit to Zaap Thai Nottingham

    A Friday night spent with my friend Emily from Leicester called for a meal out somewhere quick and delicious in the city centre. After working up an appetite over a very nice glass of Pinot Noir at Veeno, we headed to Zapp on Maid Marian Way.

    The wintery November nights meant that it was already dark outside by the time we headed over, but Zaap looked very inviting, with its colourful lighting glowing through the restaurant’s glass front.

    The staff were incredibly welcoming, greeting us with wide smiles as soon as we got through the door. Our table near the back of the restaurant gave us a great view of all

    The Italian Job was the icing on the cake at Marco’s Italian

    It was Friday night, but not just any Friday night, it was the inaugural Funky Friday at Marco’s Italian, Kegworth. Unsure what to expect and a touch nervous of the word funky I invited my 19 year old daughter to join me.

    We drove to the restaurant, which is located in the Best Western Premier Yew Lodge Hotel in Kegworth. Kegworth is a pretty village just a few minutes’ drive from East Midlands Airport, yet seemingly situated a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of a busy gateway.

    As we approached the hotel we noticed how beautifully lit it was so immediately gave it full

    Lunch at the Crafty Crow

    On a typical Sunday, the cobbled street that runs alongside the steep rise up to Nottingham Castle is always bustling with visitors posing for snaps with the Robin Hood Statue, or heading into the castle to admire the gardens, delve into the caves, or browse the art exhibitions contained inside.

    There’s a lot to do in this part of town, so it’s useful that there are plenty of spots to stop for a relaxing drink or a bite to eat. On this particular Sunday – which was particularly bustling as it was also a Heritage Open Day – we went along to sample the menu at the Crafty Crow.

    Great Spots to Grab a Coffee in Notts

    We’re spoilt for choice for places to get a caffeine fix in the city and county, so here are just a few of our favourite independent bean brewers who we think make Notts a coffee capital!

    200 Degrees Coffee

    Nottingham coffee royalty since their Market Square shop opened in 2014, 200 degrees have since opened a second branch on Carrington Street and they even share their expertise at their Barista school – you’ll never have to suffer a substandard coffee again!

    Cartwheel Cafe and Roastery

    Cartwheel believe ethical production is key to producing a great cup. They take care when sourcing their coffee and their beans are roasted in house by their knowledgeable

    Feeling autumnal at Bramley’s Brasserie

    What better week to visit Bramley’s Brasserie, on our stunning University of Nottingham campus, than when it’s been announced that the original Bramley apple tree in Southwell which still bears fruit today has been shortlisted for a national award?

    I heard the new autumn menu was available, just as the leaves started to fall from the trees around this beautiful venue, so I branched out for a visit. The floor to ceiling glass in the foyer and restaurant never cease to please the eye and visiting around 7.30pm in September, I managed to catch the sun setting and appreciate the fairy lights in the trees which started to appear.

    Tucking into Pizzas at Rocket at Saltwater

    Sitting high above the city, Rocket at Saltwater is a stylish place to enjoy a drink and some food, with a fantastic atmosphere. A couple of members of the Experience Nottinghamshire team went along to try out their tasty looking pizza menu – here’s what we made of it:

    Few things make life worth living more than a good pizza – so when offered the chance to go and try out the pizzas at Rocket at Saltwater, I jumped at the chance to grab a slice of the action.

    Located in the Cornerhouse, which is a fantastic entertainment venue in the heart of Nottingham and features restaurants, a huge

    National Burger Day in Notts

    It’s #NationalBurgerDay tomorrow and Notts certainly knows how to celebrate the occasion. Here’s our round-up of unbeatable burgers from the city and county.

    Annie’s Burger Shack

    Annie’s all-American freehouse restaurant has been something of an Nottingham institution since opening in 2013. The original menu includes the Elvis – a peanut butter and jelly smothered burger inspired by the King himself, and the Vermonter, which comes topped with pancakes soaked in maple syrup.  What’s more, veggies and vegans are fully catered for and can choose from the same menu as meat-eaters.

    Missoula Montana

    Another taste of USA to be found in the Lace Market area of the city, the burgers at Missoula Montana

    Bill’s Summer Menu

    The team spent a leisurely lunchtime devouring the delicious summer set menu at Bill’s Nottingham.

    Kinga

    I decided to go for the roasted plum tomato and red pepper soup starter and chargrilled minute steak lightly batted out, with watercress, garlic butter and skin on fries. Both the starter and main course were delicious, although my heart was stolen by the steak. It was very tender, juicy, rich with garlic butter, and extremely tasty – one of the tastier steaks I’ve ever had.

    I was also happy to discover that there are quite a few PokeStops just outside the restaurant and someone set up lure modules on all

    Lunch at the new 200 Degrees Cafe

    Nottingham coffee lovers have been rejoicing following the opening of the second 200 Degrees café in the city centre – an outlet for fresh brews and amazing food from Nottingham’s premier coffee roasters, 200 Degrees coffee.

    The roaster’s first café on the edge of Old Market Square in the Flying Horse Walk arcade is already hugely popular with locals and visitors alike, thanks to its delicious coffee and drinks, freshly prepared food and chilled-out atmosphere. Not only this, it’s home to Nottingham’s very own barista school, where you can learn everything from how to make the perfect cup of coffee at home, to how to perfect your latte art if
