Lagan, Beeston Nottingham


At the weekend we visited Lagan with some friends of ours for a late dinner. Lagan has only been open since the first May bank holiday weekend and is where the old post office used to be on Chilwell Road in Beeston. It is a branch of Mewar Haveli in Radcliffe (we’ve never been but have been told its very good) that serves Indian tapas!

Kedleston Hall, Derbyshire (National Trust)


Last weekend we continued our tour of National Trust properties. Kedleston Hall is a lovely 18th century mansion with huge grounds. Its a short distance from Derby so is fairly easy to get to.

Calke Abbey, Derbyshire (National Trust)


On the bank holiday Monday we decided to take advantage of our new National Trust joint membership. Calke (been told its pronounced like Cork?) Abbey, also known as the un-stately home and country estate, is located in Ticknall, Derby. Short drive away from home for us.

The Risley Park, Nottingham


Earlier this month my husband and I visited Risley Park for our anniversary dinner. He’s been several times with his brother and father but this was my first time. Although we’d gone after 8pm it was absolutely rammed which was a good indication that its a popular place to visit.

Marrakesh Restaurant, Nottingham


On Saturday night we were out with friends and visited Marrakesh. This was the 2nd time I’d been as the first time was several years ago with the very same friends. Its on Chapel Bar in the city centre just off Market Square. We entered the restaurant fairly late (close to 9pm) and were seated quickly as the restaurant wasn’t full. We were sat near the back of the restaurant.

Nottingham Street Food Club, Nottingham


Earlier this month we decided to give the Street Food Club a go. Its been open in the Intu Victoria Centre Shopping Centre for a while now but because of its location we’ve never been bothered. However, the husband saw some photos on Facebook of food served there and we thought we’d try it. We’ve also tried a similar concept in Leeds.
