    International Coffee Day in Notts

    We’re spoilt for choice for places to get a caffeine fix in the city and county, so this #InternationalCoffeeDay we’re sharing 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

    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 st
    arted 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.

    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

    A visit to the Mulberry Tree Cafe

    On a recent sunny Sunday, my friend and I decided to visit somewhere new for the afternoon, and we headed to the Mulberry Tree Café in the grounds of picturesque Strelley Hall, on the outskirts of Nottingham.

    Located in what was originally the stable block for the Hall, the Mulberry Tree Café is open every day and serves a delightful variety of café food, amazing cakes and ice cream.

    Upon arrival, we first took some time to walk around the grounds and to explore the vicinity, which includes picturesque fields and a historic church. For those feeling a little more energetic (and without a toddler in tow!), there are also a number

    Tres Bien! Bistrot Pierre Review

    Bringing a little French charm to Nottingham city centre, Bistrot Pierre is a true Nottinghamshire success story. The French bistrot has 16 restaurants across the country, but with a truly authentic feel, and fantastic food, it’s certainly no generic chain restaurant, and there’s a real independent feel to the place.

    With the flagship, original restaurant based in Nottingham, Bistrot Pierre has spread across the country, expanding without losing its philosophy of serving delicious food, offering excellent service, and providing a fantastic dining atmosphere.

    On arrival, the restaurant almost looked closed from the outside, because of the low-level lighting, which gave the walls a candle-lit flicker. The melodic French accents of the staff who

    Something New is Brewing for Coffee Lovers in Notts

    Coffee fanatics in Nottingham will be all too familiar with the delicious aromas and smooth coffees of 200° Degrees Coffee Shop, an always busy and bustling cafe just off Old Market Square.

    Serving delicious coffee, roasted at 200°, in their relaxed and trendy coffee shop on Flying Horse Walk, it’s fair to say that their hip – but unpretentious – take on artisan coffee has taken Nottingham by storm.

    So coffee-nuts will be delighted to know that 200° are well on their way to opening up a brand new cafe! In fact, it will open its doors in just two weeks’ time.

    With the clock ticking, Experience Nottinghamshire was invited behind the scenes to take a

    New Massive Tastes at Revolution Hockley

    Revolution Hockley have launched some new ‘Massive Tastes’ on their summer menu, just in time for the arrival of the (hopefully) sunny weather. Along with their new dishes, the restaurant has introduced a midweek ’15 minute lunch promise’  which means good news for lunch breakers who are tight on time – if your lunch doesn’t arrive within a quarter of an hour, Revolution will waive the bill.  However, in it’s prime location on bohemian Broad Street in the heart of independent Nottingham, Revolution is the perfect place to relax over a long, indulgent lunch – which is exactly what we did.

    It was only right that I try one of the new dishes
