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.
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.
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.
In March we visited The Pudding Pantry for the 2nd time since it opened. Our first visit was back in 2014. I’d also visited on my own with people from work for a baby shower so it was my 3rd visit. The Pudding Pantry opened in Trinity Square in April 2014.
I’ve been looking forward to Kaspas opening in Nottingham for absolute months! We finally got to go in March after our visit to Red’s as the dessert options there weren’t the best. Its situated on Maid Marian Way and is quite easy to spot.
In early March we visited Red’s True Barbecue with a group of friends. For Keith and I it was our second time in quite a few years since it had opened. We went on a Saturday which as you can imagine required quite a long waiting time as its quite a popular and busy place but for some reason did not allow us to reserve a table. However luckily they have a system in place that allows customers to go away for a while and get a notification when their table is ready.
We visited Merchants Restaurant in the Lace Market Hotel on the Saturday before Valentines Day as an early Valentines dinner. Therefore like my previous post this is quite late so I apologise for any differences.
Yesterday evening we went to Sinatra’s as a second celebration of Keith’s birthday with his mum, stepdad and brother. We’d not been to Sinatra’s for years since the first time we’d been to celebrate our anniversary in October 2013. That makes it at least 3 years since!
Its been about 8 months since our last visit to ZAAP! We decided to visit on Keith’s birthday as an impromptu visit. Upon entry it still looks as busy as ever even though it was a weekday evening. We were seated quite promptly in one of the rickshaw tables.
In the interests of trying out more places close to where we live we thought we’d try The Trent Lock today. Its a pub thats located at Trent Lock, a major waterway junction where canals and rivers meet. Its run by Vintage Inns who run many pubs across the UK.
