Norbury, Derbyshire Dales
20/08/2017: This is a restaurant that is on the list for special occasions and meals. Never fails to please with excellent food, artistically presented and informative friendly service.
19/08/2017: This was a superb meal to celebrate a wedding anniversary. The nine-course tasting menu was consistently cooked to the highest standards. It was impossible to pick out a highlight, as each small serving came with well-matched, imaginative ingredients. The young staff were lovely - attentive, but not over-attentive, with a suitable pause between each course. At £55, this menu is excellent value for money.


Stones Restaurant

Matlock All Saints, Derbyshire Dales, 45-60£
21/08/2017: This place is amazing, truly amazing. Stumbled across Stones more by accident than design. We were coming to the area for the Christmas market at Chatsworth House in November 2016 and staying in Matlock. Did a quick Google search for "good restaurants in Matlock" and Stones seemed to have some good reviews.Our first visit was for a group of three, the restaurant is down a steep flight of steps by the bridge over the river and once you are inside it is a very attractive and cozy environment.I'm not going to describe every piece of food we had but suffice to say it was all amazing. Presentation of the food is very good and the flavours are incredible. Very inventive and talented chefs at work here.Our second visit was for just two of us and we managed to get a table in the conservatory area. We started with cocktails and canapes on the terrace outside overlooking the river. Really lovely setting.The front of house staff are mainly young, but all very attentive and quite knowledgeable about their products.Stones is rightly very popular and it is not easy to get a reservation at the weekend so book ahead or go mid-week, but as I said in the title, keep it to yourselves!How this place hasn't got a Michelin star I don't know, it certainly deserves one.Oh and finally, this place is amazing value for money!
19/08/2017: A thoroughly agreeable experience. Quiet and attentive service without being obtrusive. A delicious menu from which I enjoyed the smoked eel and the hake followed by a delectable chocolate dessert. The ambiance of the restaurant was delughtful, they were fully booked but we had our own space.Defiantly come again. Thank you


Koinonia Restaurant

Castle, Newark and Sherwood, >100£
21/08/2017: WOW!! Just been to Koinonia this evening and what a fabulous little restaurant it is. The food was out of the world, the staff lovely and very attentive. Very reasonably priced. Not a traditional Indian so if your looking for the boring tikka or madras with your typical naan bread you want get it. Go with an open mind to try something new it's so delicious and very well catered for vegetarian which I thought was perfect, thank you. We will be revisiting with family and friends soon.
19/08/2017: A great night out for a friend's hen night. Fabulous food that I can't rate highly enough. Highly recommend


Rumbletums Café

Cossall and Kimberley, Broxtowe
06/11/2017: A warm caring environment with fantastic home baked cakes. The staff are very friendly and approachable.
23/10/2017: Very friendly and run as a charity.


Restaurant Sat Bains

Dunkirk and Lenton, Nottingham, >100£
21/08/2017: Forget the industrial site location. Here is all about highly creative food . The kitchen is relentress in its search for new dishes to bring to the dining table. Sure not everything is to our taste but most dishes push your boundarys like no other. This is restaurant for seasoned fine diners who want to be challenged. Service is generally well organised occasionally a little soulless. Wine list is solid and comprehensive. Location/Décor 2/5Food 18/30Service 8/10Wine 8/10Value 4/5Total =40/50
19/08/2017: After watching Master Chef I've decided to book room and ten course tasting menu in that restaurant for our anniversary. The experience was mind-blowing! Scientific cooking I would say. From horseradish ice cream to chicken muesli. I can't even describe how delicious it was!!!I would do it over and over again. Worth every penny! Great service, room was nice, clean with comfy bad. Attaching some pictures of the food. We definitely will be back there.



Bakewell, Derbyshire Dales, 30-45£
17/08/2017: Whilst on a self catering holiday with two other couples, we decided to eat out on our last night in Bakewell, and were absolutely delighted with our choice of restaurant. The other reviews that helped us select this restaurant were spot on; the food was excellent and the service was very personable. Despite the great décor and overall plush surroundings, the prices were very reasonable for the quality delivered. Where else can you can desserts in a quality restaurant at an evening session for £4? Nowhere, I would suggest, and the wine was very well priced as well.
08/08/2017: Piedaniels is located "over the bridge" from the town, at the edge of a car park, but is well worth finding. Excellent, inventive & well priced food in a smart environment. Indeed it was so smart that on peering inside, we doubted whether we wanted to eat quite so formally or expensively. We needn't have worried staff were friendly and helpful and I was particularly grateful for the waitress's heartfelt recommendation of the special: Papardelle with lemon, chilli, pepper and goats cheese.


White Horse

Kings Sutton, South Northamptonshire, 20-30£
22/08/2017: Lisa and john would like to express our gratitude to the White Horse, Kings Sutton for making our wedding day an unforgettable experience.Nothing was to much trouble for all the waiting staff... the service was exemplary as always!Hendrick and his fellow chefs created us a fantastic buffet.. all homemade, and all presented perfectly, ( the black pudding scotch eggs... wow!).Mike as always sorted the gin bar, and cocktails.. and will be sorely missed by us.Toni.... cupcake heaven.Anyone thinking of a venue for a high class, low stress, fantastic place for their reception etc, could not pick a better place!!!!!.Lisa & john.
20/08/2017: Enjoyed another superb Sunday lunch here today. Food is wonderful, staff so friendly and welcoming. Beautiful pub. Highly recommended but do book as it is so popular.


The Jews House Restaurant

Carholme, Lincoln, 30-45£
23/10/2017: Delicious food & top class service. 48hr short rib of beef to die for!
18/09/2017: Excellent food and service at all times


Cafe Nonno's

Belper Central, Amber Valley
19/08/2017: The service in this restaurant is the best service I've had in a long time, the staff are really attentive but also don't pester you too much. The food is always delicious and although slightly pricier than the average restaurant the experience is worthwhile.
10/08/2017: Food was good and a reasonable menu selection. Will be going back as the food was first class and the menu choices wide. we were upstairs so not wheel chair accessible but the ground floor would be fine.



Arboretum, Derby, 20-30£
21/08/2017: Cute little venue with great food and a nice atmosphere, they had live musci on when i visited and everything was just very good! great addition to friar gate and would recommend to all..
14/08/2017: We visited with family, on our return from Spain. Booked online and enquired about a gluten free menu, which is fantastic, by the way. Responded to my email immediately! Warm and welcoming staff, very friendly. Food was delicious. Well worth a visit.


John's House Restaurant

Stanford, Rushcliffe
19/08/2017: Visited John's House for our anniversary and the food and service was awesome. Local produce used and informative information provided at each course for what food was served as well as the wines which were paired with the course. A couple of small issues with the food where there was a tiny bug on one of the decorative flowers as well as some crab shell in one of the dishes and both dishes immediately swapped out and apologies given for the inconvenience... Bill was adjusted automatically without asking as it must have been a little bit embarrassing for them.
17/08/2017: Superb evening out at Johns House. The staff were very helpful and attentive. The taster menu was exceptional, we both enjoyed the pork with pineapple and peanut. The amuse bouche and petit fours really started and finished the meal off perfectly. Can't fault it.


The Apiary Cafe Bar

Castle Donington, North West Leicestershire
20/08/2017: We went here in the afternoon for a drink and the staff were all very friendly and welcoming and decided to book for our evening meal. When we returned the bar was buzzing. We were shown to a small room away from the bar. We had a lovely meal from a good selection of choices. The food was lovely and well presented. Would definitely recommend
18/08/2017: After reading the brilliant reviews. I was very much looking forward to visiting with my partner. We called in on the morning to look at the food menu and inquire if we needed to book a table. After speaking to the lady behind the bar, who said we would not need to book a table to eat that evening we went away looking forward to dinning there and sampling a few Gins.When we arrived we stood at the bar and ordered our drinks and asked if we could have a table. The waitress said that she didn't have any tables available for us as they were all taken. I had noticed that there were reserved signs on some of the tables so it was clear that we should have reserved. This some what spoilt our night as we had to organise else where to eat. However I must say the gins were lovely.


Himalayan Gurkha

Arboretum, Derby, <20£
31/10/2017: My first time ordering takeaway from them. Not as happy as eat in. Took 1h20m to get here. And paid £1.95 for a tiny portion of pickled veg, when I would normally get twice as much for free in the restaurant. But aside from that, still very happy. Flavour & quality, spot on as always. Food still hot when it arrived. Will still takeaway again.
21/10/2017: The food was delivered 30mins early, but the restaurant did add 25mins to the delivery time. The food was very tasty, and was reasonably priced.

Stanton, Derbyshire Dales, 20-30£
21/08/2017: Another absolute fabulous evening at our favorite restaurent.superb food backed up by great service and staff who have become our friends.cannot praise this place enough and can't wait for our next visit
20/08/2017: We wanted a change from British pub fare one evening and chanced on The Shalimar after a web search. What an excellent surprise it turned out to be! The service was swift and very friendly and the food was excellent - our Canadian friends were as impressed as we were. We will definitely be back the next time we are in the area.


Emilios Greek Restaurant

St Marys, Gedling
15/08/2017: From the moment you walk in you feel very welcomed and a great atmosphere. The food was outstanding and the staff are lovely. It was our first time here and won't be our last. I would happily pay more for what we had, that's how extremely good quality the food is. Well done to the chefs too for their outstanding cooking. HIGHLY recommended :)
