Consistently excellent. Just my 5th visit here. This time for my son’s 21st. It felt very special. A warm pleasant ambience. Professional, courteous staff. The food was truly delicious and beautifully presented. I highly recommend to you this little gem which is near Nottingham Castle.

World Service is back! After some worthy but less than alluring offerings in the last year - World Service has it mojo back! Beautifully presented with a hint of oriental mystique the monkfish with lemongrass was sublime. If this wasn’t enough the creme brûlée with...More
