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.
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!
The Bear and Lace was opened in 2015 in the site of the previous Chambers Pub on Maid Marian Way. It was touted as a high end Champagne bar. I’d not personally heard about it until last year when a colleague said she was holding her engagement party there. I then booked it for the department office Christmas party on Friday the 16th of December 2016. I’ve also had my leaving do there yesterday evening (Friday the 6th of January 2017). As I have 2 separate events there I shall write this in 2 sections.
We visited Rye with some friends for breakfast on the Sunday the 4th of December 2016. Its a cafe I’d heard a lot about on Facebook courtesy of some Beeston groups I follow. As our friends live in Beeston we thought we’d try it!
On Saturday the 26th of November 2016 I went to one of the newer restaurants the Lace Market has to offer, Griddle and Shake which opened early in November. The restaurant is owned by Michelin trained chef, Ed Halls. On this occasion my husband and I went with our friend who was back in Nottingham for a quick visit. I’d been recommended this restaurant by a work colleague who really enjoyed her experience. Our experience wasn’t the best but its been over a month since we’d been so hopefully its improved since then.
Last weekend we decided to give OAKS in Nottingham a go. This restaurant opened in the spring of 2015 and is in the plot right next to Zaap.
