I'm planning a trip to Nottingham where I will show my friends the sandstone beauty, the City of Caves. Since we may spend there a lot of time, I need some recommendations on good cafes/restaurants/pubs near this attraction to have a dinner at. Where would you go? =) The cuisine doesn't matter, but the distance does (it should be near the City of Caves). I've found a list of restaurants at [original link] but still can't decide on a place to visit. Is Ibérico World Tapas really great?
12 minutes away on foot (according to googlemaps.com) is Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, allegedly the oldest pub in England. I enjoyed some pub food there a few years ago - it might be something special for your friends to eat in such an old place.[original VT link]
Thank you for your recommendation! The interior is nice and it serves British cuisine which I like. Thanks
Thanks for your suggestion! I suppose when visiting Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem we can also come and see Brewhouse Yard Museum nearby. Wow! The pub is the oldest inn in England (as the official website states) Excited to visit!
It is far too many years since I was in Nottingham to offer any meaningful advice but I do know the Olde Trip to Jerusalem and if it has not changed for so many centuries then I doubt it has over the last 20 years. Apart from the food aspect, which seems to be good according to other members who have more recent knowledge, it is always worth a trip in it's own rightpurely for the history. If you decide to eat elsewhere, great, but no trip to that fine city would be complete without a visit there. If you can manage to organise a cellar trip your friends will never forget it, it is superb.
Hope this assists albeit in a small way,
