Favourite places to eat in Nottingham,UK


First loves let’s talk about this bag, if you follow me on Instagram then babes I warn you, this is going to be all over the place. I adore it, like completely and utterly love it. I’ve wanted a black tote bag for ages and as I knew it needed to be an investment, I wanted it to be amazing, and this gorgeous Lille-tote bag from the brand Rox and Ann certainly is amazing. The quality of the suede and leather is just so beautiful. Also loves up the 11th of May you can use my code ‘gracesurguy’ for a 50% discount off the Lille-tote bag collection, what a flipping good discount.

I’ve also got so much love for a oversized linen blazer at the minute and this one from H&M is perfect. I also adore a pair of red flared trousers, and I’ve realised that these trousers are the most worn pair of trousers in my wardrobe, something I never expected when I bought them, but they really do go with everything.

I live in Nottingham in the UK, and I just wanted to give you guys an overview of my favourite places to eat in the city. Whether you guys live here, study here, or are just visiting at some point.

  1. The Alchemist

This a very newbie restaurant/bar in Nottingham which I visited for the first time for brunch on a Saturday, and man was it good. My fiancé and I had the American style pancakes (yes that included bacon) and it was seriously amazing.

The restaurant/bar itself its really decadent, and this is certainly reflected in the cocktails. My fiancé (never one to shy away) ordered a bubbling gin cocktail that really was a work of art and tasted amazing. It’s the kind of cool place that you want to take your friends to for brunch at the weekend, but also drinks on a Saturday night.

What I also have to say about The Alchemist is the service was so good, the guys were really attentive (but not too attentive, you know what I mean) and made sure we had everything we needed.

  1. Bar Iberico

This is my absolute favourite place in Nottingham for tapas, and if you go at lunch time they have the most amazing lunch time menu called the menu rapido, its under £10 for the most amazing quality food and you really are full afterwards.

It’s the perfect place to take your family or partner for a yummy lunch, and a glass of wine (obviously).

My fav things to get are the beetroot carpaccio, orange, goats cheese walnut and the crispy chicken and spicy Jerez Sauce, soooooo yummy!

  1. Edin’s Kitchen

So I feel like this is my secret little gem of a restaurant hidden in Nottingham’s city centre. This little multi-cuisine restaurant is so reasonably priced it is almost unbelievable. All meals are freshly cooked and although the menu is not huge (which is why I guess the prices are so reasonable!) there is such a good choice for meat/fish/veggie/vegan or whatever your diet choice because you know these guys will cater for it.

Plus the atmosphere is so relaxed and chilled, it really does feel like its everyone’s best kept secret.

Edin’s do not currently have a website but find them here on Facebook

Red Trousers And My Love For Jhene Aiko

I’m going to start with these trousers, who wouldn’t! They are red and fabulous! I actually have the same trousers in blue pinstripe, when Topshop bought them out earlier in the year. Then I saw them in red and I was hooked! The great thing about this pair is the price, they are only £25, which is really on the cheaper side for Topshop, not that I am going to complain! They are a slightly stretchy classic slim fit trouser, and I have them in a size 8 which fits fine, they are exactly what I wanted, well done Topshop.

Now, I have got to speak about my fan girl antics for Jhene Aiko, I love her, I’m not going to lie. Big statement, but she is definitely my favourite current hip hop/R&B female artist. My boyfriend knew how much I loved her, and bless him bought this from her official merchandise site, which is so crazy cute, he’s the best. I absolutely love a slogan t-shirt at the minute, and I love this even more because, if you know, you know…lol.

What outfit would be complete without the accessories? Certainly not this one, two of my absolute fav’s are these slip on black bow mules from Ego, and of course my Gucci belt. I’ve said it before but these shoes are crazy comfy and go with pretty much anything, absolutely loving Ego at the minute, an affordable shoes retailer that offer really cool styles.
