Sampling the New Menu at Revolution Cornerhouse

Growing up Revolution was all about Vodka, Vodka and... I'm sure you get the picture. I've spent plenty of nights in there (Knowingly and unknowingly) so I have to admit that when Revolution at The Cornerhouse invited us along to sample their new menu I was more than a little intrigued as in the past I'd never considered it for their food.

Gone was the dark, late night drinking den, replaced with a light, airy environment that makes you feel much more at ease. The restrictive booths have been replaced by more 'open-plan' seating and it really feels like the kind of environment you could settle down to get to know someone on a date or get-together with a bunch of friends.

With a menu featuring a selection of traditional pub style meals but with more modern twists Revolution Cornerhouse seems to have a number of bases covered. The menu is varied yet features a selection of burgers and pizza's with twists to keep us all interested such as Vodka Chicken which gives a nod to the chain's heritage.

Beer and Pizza at the Eagle's Corner, Arnold

We've been a bit spoilt in the Arnold area over the last year or so with a good number of new pubs and restaurants opening. The newest of those is the Eagle's Corner on Front Street. Offering up freshly baked pizzas it seemed worthy of a mid week meal for us this week.

The interior at the Eagle's Corner

Arnold was originally known as Ernehale (Hence the local JD Wetherspoon's The Ernehale) which translates from Anglo-Saxon as the valley of the Eagles so whilst initially the name Eagle's Corner may seem a little peculiar it does have local significance.

The pub's interior is clean, fresh and very Italian orientated. Plenty of Italian adverts adjourn the walls highlighting the prominence of the pizza's and flatbreads on the menu. Plenty of signs and showcased Birra Moretti highlights this aspect too.

The Himalayan Inn Arnold- Great Curry Shame About the Chicken

A Himalayan Restaurant in Arnold as we Search for Nottingham's Best Curry

We've been wanting to try Nepalese food for quite some time. Intrigued at the Nepali take on a curry and how the food might differ from what we usually expect from a local curry house. We're on the quest to find Nottingham's best curry so when the Himalayan Inn opened a couple of weeks ago we knew we had to head in to try.

The Himalayan Inn, Arnold, Nottingham
The property itself has been a number of restaurants over the years. It was previously Piccolo's although every so often a new restaurant popped up to be replaced some time later. In honesty this used to be a less popular end of Arnold when it comes to eating and drinking but with the emergence of the Robin Hood and Little John across the road more late night drinkers will head their way with an appetite.

On entering we were greeted with a friendly handshake from the staff. We'd bought the camera and they were more than happy for us to take photos within the restaurant, As the Nottingham Food Lovers blog has slowly expanded we still are apprehensive asking people if they're happy for us to take photos- usually we just stick to the food but in reality we do need to start adding more as popularity increases.

One of the things we love to try when we're at a restaurant is the beer. Local beers for where we're eating is always a priority so we started with a Gurkha Beer. Very light and very easy to drink this makes an excellent beer for a curry.

The UK's Best Sunday Roast Right Here in Nottingham

Whilst we never created the Nottingham Food Lovers Blog as a news site we sometimes come across a little piece of information that we feel we need to shout about in celebration of food in Nottingham and the surrounding area.

The Larwood and Voce in West Bridgford has been awarded the Best British Road Dinner crown at the recent British Roast Dinner Week which ran from into the first week of October. It's a great award to celebrate local food and we'd like to offer our congratulations.

Larwood and Voce's Award Winning Roast Dinner

The title celebrates the quintessential British dish. Whilst once upon a time it would have been known as "Sunday Dinner" a roast dinner is a real pub classic which many of us enjoy no matter what the day or time of year. British Roast Dinner Week is an annual event sponsored by Knorr Gravy and Colman's Mustard to celebrate the dish. This year there were 447 entry submissions from pubs and restaurants across the UK of which the Larwood and Voce came out victorious.

West Bridgford's Larwood and Voce sits at the back of Trent Bridge Cricket Ground and has rapidly become an integral part of the West Bridgford dining scene thanks to it's choice of quality food. If you wish to sample their roast on a Sunday booking is advisable (More so after this award). Prices are around £13 for Sunday dinner with excellent portion sizes (as pictured above)

As part of their service for large groups they will even bring out your meat to carve in front of you at the table and are in the process of installing their own dry-ageing fridge to further enhance flavours. Definitely worth a visit.
