We are often asked to do reviews for venues in Nottinghamshire - these can be restaurants, attractions - in fact, anything that is a 'Thing to do in Nottinghamshire'.

We hope that you find our opinion useful - we try to be as honest and objective as we can but we will tell you if there is something we really don't like too!

If you have a 'Thing to do in Nottinghamshire' that you'd like us to review, please get in touch! We don't ask for any payment for the reviews we do.

Light Up Christmas at Wollaton’s iconic Hall promised an enchanting light spectacle for 2020 and, after the year we’ve had, this sounded perfect.

After a hideous year, receiving an invitation to return to my favourite spa and try out a new treatment was just the tonic I needed.

The Nottinghamshire Golf and Country Club is just a place for golfers right?  It has the kudos of being the only 36 hole golf complex in Nottingham and I’d heard that it was quite swish and only 6 miles from the City Centre but, as a non-golfer, I didn’t think there would be anything there to interest me.

A panto that starts with the song “Nottingham is the greatest place of all” has got to be good, hasn’t it?  Well, I suppose if, like me, you agree, I’d say that this year’s offering from Nottingham’s Theatre Royal is going to be a cracker.

Our family is a big fan of Indian food and, here in Nottingham, we are very lucky to have such a fantastic choice of restaurants to choose from. Having visited quite a few over the years, we jumped at the chance to pop down to Gunthorpe to dine at The Bridge and Bayleaf, which is located on the banks of the River Trent, on the site of the Gunthorpe Toll Bridge.

I like the concept of Bottomless Brunch. Some nice food, 2 hours of drinks and then home in time for an afternoon nap - it's the perfect combination for me these days. I've tried it at a few restaurants in Nottingham, so was pleased to be invited to the St James Hotel in Nottingham to give their Sunday Brunch offering the once-over.

The hospitality experience at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena has had an overhaul – and it’s looking rather swanky.  The premium Spotlight Restaurant and Bar is the new 130 capacity bar and restaurant, which can be found on level 4 of the Arena and is easily accessible by lift.

I’ve walked past the entrance to Cosmo Authentic World Kitchen numerous times but have never made the journey up the steps to find out what it’s all about.  So, I was very happy to be invited over to see what my kids have been raving about.

It’s really nice to be giving the opportunity to review a Nottingham eatery with a difference and Pokewaves certainly goes into that category.  Located in the upper mall of the Clocktower dining area in Nottingham’s intu Victoria Centre, Pokewaves offers the City its first taste of Hawaiian food.

Because having one great restaurant in Nottingham City Centre isn’t enough, the owners of Petit Paris recently opened Paris Bar and Restaurant in the Lace Market and we were lucky enough to be invited along to try it out.
