George’s Great British Kitchen – Nottingham

One of our favourite places to eat with the kids in Nottingham city centre is George’s Great British Kitchen (George’s). Whenever we visit, we always have a great time and everyone is happy. I thought I’d share our most recent visit on here. We always tend to visit on a Saturday and this was also the case for our last visit. We went with my mum and dad and the kids.

On Sunday, we went to Browns in Nottingham for a special family meal for my mother-in-law’s 70th birthday.

On first impressions, I was a little worried that it might not be that child-friendly, although I really shouldn’t have…

Jamie’s Italian, Nottingham {restaurant review}

We were delighted to be asked to sample the Super Lunch menu at our local Jamie’s Italian, which is in Nottingham. I’ve actually visited before, but have never taken the kids, so thought it would be a great opportunity to see just how family friendly it is. The day we were booked in was particularly dull, dreary and wet, so it was great timing – a lovely little treat to perk us up! We arrived about 5 mins before our 12-noon reservation and were ushered out of the rain, even though they weren’t officially open. We were seated on a…
