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.

Fat Bird, Singapore


On our 2nd night in Singapore we met up with another group of friends at Fat Bird in Bugis. Its address is 1 Liang Seah St #01-15/16, Singapore 189022. It looks like a really busy restaurant from the outside. We were sat upstairs which is rather small and cosy but still allows for several tables.

Red’s True Barbecue, Nottingham


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.

Merchants Restaurant, Nottingham


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.

Sinatra Bar & Restaurant, Nottingham


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!

Annie’s Burger Shack, Nottingham


The first time I’d heard about Annie’s was when Annie left the Navigation Inn in Nottingham to set up her own premises in the Lace Market. I heard loads about her amazing burgers when she’d been in the Navigation Inn so was quite looking forward to trying her burgers on her own premises.

Suede Bar, Nottingham


Went to Suede in January 2016 with colleagues. Its in the Creative Quarter of Hockley, Nottingham. You’ll spot the benches made out of skateboards first as you approach it.

The interior is really quirky and the music was an interesting mix. The kitchen is basically open into the restaurant so you basically leave stinking of pizzas.
