    Hearty food in rustic surroundings at Bill’s, Nottingham

    Myself, my partner and my family recently ventured into Nottingham on a Saturday night to catch a show at the Capital FM Arena, and to enjoy a delicious meal as a four – something we need no excuse to do!

    The restaurant of choice for our meal was one I still hadn’t tried, despite many promises to myself to go since its launch in Nottingham last year. Most of my friends and family have tried it several times – all with rave reviews, so I’ve felt like I’d been missing out on an experience for a while. Bill’s Restaurant, located on Queen Street, just off the Market Square, is an established chain

    Nottingham welcomes new wood grill restaurant, Oaks

    Nottingham and oak trees have been synonymous since ancient times, so our newest wood grill restaurant not only has the perfect name, but is perfectly thought through – from the front door down to the sausages.  Visitors to the city can now sample some of Nottinghamshire’s fantastic local produce surrounded by the glory of our most famous tree.

    From the moment you walk through the giant oak covered door, which stands out on the grey horizon of Maid Marion Way, the smell of the wood embers burning on the grill surround you with warmth and stir your appetite. Sourced from a sustainable forest in Lowdham, the wood alight in the open oven

    Curry delight at The Cumin restaurant

     

    Our beautiful city is famous for its very own curry lane – Maid Marian Way is the street where many of Nottingham’s Indian restaurants are located, and where any Indian curry lover would feel at home. You’ll know you’re in the right place after crossing the street from the Old Market Square towards the Nottingham Castle, because of the deliciously tempting smell of Indian spices that hangs in the air.

    We visited The Cumin restaurant last week on a warm summer evening. The weather was perfect for an evening meal out, and we decided to pay a visit to one of our favourite Indian restaurants in Nottingham. We

    Taste revolution as Hockley bar launches its new menu

    Revolution Hockley re-opened earlier this year with a brand new look which perfectly complements its place in the bohemian Lace Market. Now it has a new menu to match so last week, Experience Nottinghamshire’s Anna Scott, Kate Dawson and Catherine Allen, who are all self-confessed food lovers, went to try it out.

    Anna: MacPhilly Cheese Steak
    What a mouth-watering taste sensation this was! Smoked cheddar macaroni cheese smothered in delicious pulled salt beef with French mustard in a stone-baked ciabatta bun. The steak was perfectly complemented by crispy fries and Revolution’s home-made ketchup.

    This dish combined some of my favourite food: cheese, pasta and slow-cooked meat so it was always going

    Clumber Park Hotel and Spa afternoon tea

    Sitting directly opposite the majestic Clumber Park, in the heart of the Dukeries, Clumber Park Hotel and Spa is the perfect retreat for anyone looking for a relaxing meal, spa day or weekend away. This time, however, my visit was to sample the afternoon tea menu, which will be available in the Courtyard Restaurant every Friday, starting tomorrow.

    After making my way through the beautifully-designed reception area, I was greeted by one of the friendly waitresses who showed me to the bright Courtyard Restaurant which overlooks the pretty garden at the centre of the hotel. After settling down at the table, it wasn’t long before plates of delicious sweet and savoury treats began to
