    Winter Warmers at Bramley’s Brasserie

    On a cold, dark night in December, we were lucky enough to be treated to a taste of the new winter menu at Bramley’s Brasserie, onsite at the De Vere Orchard Hotel in Nottingham.

    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
