    Revolution Hockley opens with a brand new look

    Retro style furniture and décor, cocktail-making and a brand menu are just some of the things you can look forward to at the newly-refurbished Revolution Hockley.

    Located in possibly the hippest neighbourhoods in the city, Revolution Hockley has something for everyone, whether you are planning a relaxed lunch or after-work drinks with friends or want to dance late into the night.

    The makeover took just one week to complete and the bar is now open for business once again. In keeping with the area’s vintage clothes shops and cafes, Revolution Hockley now has a distinctly bohemian feel. Natural materials such as wood and leather form part of the new décor and the large venue has

    A world of choice at Red Hot World Buffet

    Sometimes there is nothing harder than satisfying hungry tummies in our household. I have a husband who loves Chinese food, a child who likes Indian food and then me who pretty much goes with the flow to keep the peace.

    Imagine my horror then when recently I had a family party to arrange and with differing ages and so many different tastes to cater for I was near panic with where we could go. It was suggested to me that we try Red Hot World Buffet located in the Cornerhouse in the city centre and boy am I glad they did.

    Upon sitting down we were amazed at just how

    Colston Bassett share the secret to success in award winning year

    The festive season is here – and as an avid cheese fiend I thought there was no better time to find out what’s been happening at Colston Bassett Dairy, producer of the world-famous Stilton Cheese. The dairy, based in the Vale of Belvoir, has scooped a string of titles at this year’s World Cheese Awards building on last year’s success. We caught up with manager Billy Kevan to find out what makes Stilton so special…

    How long has Colston Bassett been producing its famous Stilton cheese?
    Established in 1913, Colston Bassett was the idea of the village doctor Dr William Windley. He suggested that local farmers

    Harker’s Farm Shop has everything you need for your Christmas feast

    Christmas is a time for feasting but if you’re anything like me then you’ll dread the thought of battling your way around a crowded supermarket as you stock up for the big day. But at Harker’s Farm Shop, the experience couldn’t be more different. Located in the sleepy hamlet of Clipston-on-the-Wolds in south Nottinghamshire, the shop is surrounded by fields and country lanes and offers a relaxing alternative to the usual Christmas rush.

    My colleague and I visited the farm shop earlier this month to see what was in store for the festive season ahead. After stopping to admire the traditional wreaths and plump, healthy-looking Christmas trees we were met by

    Feeling like a child in a sweet shop at The Treat Kitchen

    Everyone has fond memories of buying sweets as a child. For me it was when I was eventually allowed to go to the shops on my own where I would come back with bags of penny sweets, including flying saucers, jelly strawberries, pear drops, cola bottles and whatever else I could carry.

    Now a Nottingham sweet shop is delighting visitors to the city with its modern take on the traditional sweet shop. The Treat Kitchen, on Wheeler Gate, opened in September and since then it has found fans in the local area as well as far-flung places such as Canada. Alongside traditional sweets you will also find delicate handmade chocolates, locally-made

    Notts Derby Wine School is the pick of the bunch

    Do you know your Pinot Grigio from your Pinot Noirs, or your Rioja from your Bordeaux? What makes a good wine and how can you tell its quality from its look, smell and taste? All was explained in just one evening under the expert tuition of Debbie Ault of the Notts Derby Wine School who took us on a journey exploring the wines of Italy, Spain and Portugal.

    The course took place at Nottingham’s Jury’s Inn Hotel and on arrival we met our ‘course mates’ for the evening, a group with one thing in common: a love of wine. Once introductions were done we were ready to begin tasting the wines.

    I admit to having
