About
Fothergills, a historic Nottingham venue, offers a unique, international, bistro-style fixed price menu, using ingredients from local producers, together with ales from local micro-breweries and a great selection of wines. The relaxed and welcoming surroundings, true to the building’s heritage, offer great views of Nottingham Castle. The building, built in 1883 and designed by Watson Fothergill, now features a more stripped-back and relaxed interior, displaying more of the site’s original features and architectural significance.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went to Fothergills for dinner and it was amazing! The food, atmosphere, service and music were all 5*. We had the French onion soup, Sunday roast and the fisherman's pie and would highly recommend all of those dishes. Jude and Mike served us and...they were so helpful and friendly. Thank you for an amazing meal, we will definitely be back!More

Fothergills is definitely the best option around the Nottingham Castle. Very cosy environment, amazing food (I recommend the Sunday roast) and very friendly, fun and hot servers (look for Jude and Mike and you will have the best experience) .

Stopped off for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed a tasty cauliflower salad. There were 3 veggie options, not your standard offerings, and they all sounded delicious. But the salad didn’t disappoint. We were served with a friendly smile too - thanks Mike!
