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.

Used to be amazing but had one today and it was genuinely shocking. Bland tasting and dough was thick, dry and stodgy. Fingers crossed it was a bad batch.

Some of the best doughnuts we’ve ever had…and we’ve had a fair few. Really weighty but so light to eat, they just melt in your mouth. Plenty of variety of flavours and the 2 we tried were delicious and generous with flavourings/toppings. Gorgeous. Tip: They’re...just up the road at 14 king street nowMore

Awful. Nothing like Krispy Kremes. Tried once, never again. No competition, they look like kids have tried to have a go at baking, look terrible.

I have visited this establishment many, many times not only where they are situated now but also where they were before and I have not only treated myself to their delicious products but also family and friends. I’ve never been disappointed with the products or...the service that I’ve received. DoughNotts created an amazing giant Pac-Man doughnut not long ago for my fiancées birthday which was also pretty amazing. The doughnuts are always fresh tasting and they do different flavours and change the creations that they make quite regularly. The staff are always so friendly, always smiling and chatty. I recommend a visit at least once when visiting the city centre!More

Fair experience, was told it was a must stop place for tasty treats, and it was, and fair play to the establishment, it was towards the end of the day and being a hot spot a fair few items wasn't available but that's my timing...not there issue, I personally think it says more if a "hot spot" was still loaded with stock at 4pm but there was still a choice and being the end of the day it still tasted great, I can only imagine what it would have been like fresh in the morning. I'I'not a must go to sweet spots but if you ever visit i would recommend.More

Lovely doughnuts, the best I’ve ever had. My daughter doesn’t usually like doughnuts but she couldn’t get enough of these ones. They’re huge and so yummy. 10/10.

Excellent as always! We arrived after 4pm and there were still delicious vegan options available. The Cherry Bakewell is a particular vegan treat, and my non-vegan sister had the Boston Cream which she enjoyed. Coffees were decent with non-dairy milk on offer, although I would...prefer a washable mug rather than a disposable one for drinking in. I will always visit Doughnotts when in Nottingham!More

Began in 2015 by Wade Smith and Megan Scaddan in their mothers kitchen in Nottingham their website tells you that armed with a tenner and a wok they took the standard doughnut to the next level with their handmade doughnuts and buns. Doughnotts was created....Since then the pair have opened 3 other shops in Leicester, Lincoln and Beeston but also two in the East Midlands Outlet and more recently the West Midland Outlet. My personal favourite is in Beeston store in the former Thorntons chocolate outlet shop. The staff are so friendly, professional and swift to serve that there is always a customer walking in from the entrance right on High Street. With easy access for wheelchairs, there are a few seats for eat in diners but mostly for take away or delivery through their website. In addition are celebration cakes and special occasion doughnuts. Served with the local 200degrees coffee you are treated to some of the most decadent doughnuts ever bought. With dipped or dusted, deep filled or topped with mouthwatering flavours, vegan and non vegan doughnuts, cinnamon buns, forget the other brands they pale in comparison in not only size but taste too. The thing about Doughnotts is you never know what topped goodies will be available in addition to the core standard and premium doughnuts their toppings change on their speciality doughnuts so what you bought last week might not be made this week. Almost like Willy Wonka making the sweets e feels like making and I have the feeling that the doughnuts of the day are made by what their baker feels like baking. But one thing is consistent is the quality and size of these pastries and the level of professionalism from all the staff. Whenever in Beeston I always find half an hour to stop off for a coffee and a treat before going on my way. Well recommended whichever shop you visit.More

If you like doughnuts you HAVE to visit Dougnotts. What a creative selection of flavors. The doughnuts have a great texture and the toppings are not overly sweet. The place is small, but there are a few tables upstairs. Great value and worth a visit.

My friend bought me one as a present.... and within 3 days I was back, buying my own! They're so good! They might seem a little expensive at 2.60 for one normal one or £3+ for a more decorated one but one between 2 works...well or half for now and half for later! They're lovely and substantial! I would recommend every donut I have tried so far! Ha ha! They just opened a branch in Beeston, Nottingham too so it's good to see them going from strength to strength - they deserve it! Lovely venue and lovely friendly staff.More

My GF and I decided to have Doughnuts on our cheat day. After having read all the rave reviews we decided to give Dougnotts a try. We drove almost 50 miles...figured why not make the effort if the food is good. After having paid £12...for 4 doughnuts we were both left wondering what all the fuss was about. The doughnuts were dry, comparable to Brioche buns. Filling was on the top, not injected inside. We will not be buying any more 'breadnuts' again. We will be sticking to Krispy Kreme from now on.More

I have been visiting Doughnotts since it first opened in the other location. It was fantastic then, and it has only gotten better. I have also bought donuts from the stand in Beeston and several Vegan Markets. Additionally, this year, I got a giant donut...and a donut decorating kit for my birthday cake/birthday party. My favourite is the Homer Donuts, followed by the Cute Avocado with the tiny doughnut as the stone, and the Jammy Dodger ones. The vegan selection is vast and incredibly impressive - I actually can't taste the difference at all between the Vegan and Non-Vegan ones. Don't think I have tried one that I don't like. They also do doughnuts for dogs (dog treats - not made of pastry) which mine really enjoy, and they serve 200 degrees coffee (which is amazing). The staff are friendly, and although I can get very nervous ordering, they have always been very patient, and helpful.More

Prices are about £3-4 but they are very generous doughnuts! Definitely worth the money and very filling - we tend to eat half and keep half for later.

I think they are working on it. Their Facebook or Instagram page may be of use as they regularly post the new varieties they make.

That depends on which doughnuts you choose. You can contact them and ask as they take orders two days in advance for custom doughnuts I believe.
