Fancy Restaurants In Nottingham

Visitors to Nottingham enjoy a delightful mix of history, culture and natural beauty. It’s a great place to come for tourism, leisure or relaxation.

There’s also a thriving foodie culture that’s bringing fresh ideas, culinary talent and fantastic ingredients to the restaurants of the city. From Michelin starred-eateries to historical hideaways if you want fancy restaurants, Nottingham is a great place to be. In fact, the city’s reputation as a mecca for great cuisine is growing. There are now eight Michelin-starred restaurants within an hour’s drive. Here are a few suggestions:

Colwick Hall is a manor house-turned-luxury hotel with the right balance of cosy and class. The in-house restaurant, Byron’s Brasserie, offers freshly-cooked, delicately-crafted menus for everything from light bites, Sunday lunches and fancy dinners. Their roast lunches offer exotic tastes like crab cake with mango salad and chilli jam, alongside favourites like roast strip loin of beef, Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and rich roast gravy. It’s a warm and friendly spot, and would make an ideal location for a tasty Christmas lunch in Nottingham with the family.


Restaurant Sat Bains holds two Michelin stars and hosts a seasonal menu that embraces the flavours and spice of autumn or fresh tastes of spring. On arrival, it appears daunting thanks to slightly gloomy surroundings and lots of dark leather seating, but guests rave about the food and service. In the style of the many of the best contemporary chefs, it offers a quirky tasting menu of unusual ingredients and contrasting flavours. Current highlights include a melange of potato, kombu and caviar, alongside scallops and Anjou pigeon. It’s not for the faint of wallet though; a full tasting session will cost £110 per person.

World Service offers a widely-influenced dining experience in the heart of the city centre. You don’t get the benefit of the leafy history with this spot but the extensive menu has built up a solid reputation among the locals. The menu prices are sometimes described as a little on the high side, but the food is well-regarded. Diners have the option of dishes such as beetroot cured salmon on a thyme cracker, and blade of beef with dauphinoise potato, creamed cabbage and a mushroom and truffle sauce. Recent reviews suggest the staff are generally attentive.

Does that whet your appetite for a visit to Nottingham? At Byron’s Brasserie, we hope to see you soon!
