10 of the Best Cafes in Sherwood Forest

Exploring some of the best cages, coffee shops and food vans amongst Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire

Sherwood Forest as Autmn turns to Winter

If you go out in the woods today you're sure to need refreshments and there are a great selection of cafes in the Nottinghamshire and Sherwood Forest area.

The amazing cake selection at Brambles

Brambles Tea Room- Farnsfield. Arguably the best cake in the Sherwood Forest area. This is more a quaint tea room than a cafe and it's a level above. With some fantastic homemade cakes alongside some great food it's our top tip on a dry summers day. Easily accessed from Farnsfield along the Southwell Trail if you follow the cycle route to Bilsthorpe and then join the Southwell Trail before turning off into Farnsfield. Far better than the cafe at Sherwood Pines and well worth the journey.

Red Dog Saloon Opens It's Doors

American food is really getting popular in Nottingham and last Thursday saw the opening of Red Dog Saloon on Victoria Street a stones throw from Lace Market Tram Stop. It's the family run business' first venture outside of London showing Nottingham is firmly on the map for foodies.

Red Dog Saloon Nottingham

We're looking forward to tackling their 'Devastator Challenge'. An 18 oz burger served with 200g of Pulled Pork. Applewood smoked bacon rashers and cheese. Served alongside fries and a milkshake it sounds like a meat lovers delight with a great selection of American Barbecue food.

Awesome ribs at Red Dog Saloon

And mini burgers on offer

The opening night saw 400 people cram into the Red Dog Saloon for opening night. We got the chance to sample some amazing Hickory Pork Ribs which almost were a meal by themselves alongside Mini Burgers and Korean Chicken Wings with a warming sour sauce. They were also serving up the excellent Frontier Craft Lager which we first came across at the Mighty Deerstalker event after party last year and sampled maybe one too many. 

Red Dog Saloon has created 50 new jobs in the area

The event showcased what looks to be a very relaxed dining and entertaining space. In terms of money spent it looks to be one of the most ambitious new ventures in the city centre we've recently seen. The new venture at the top of the Hockley area of Nottingham city centre looks set to be a success. 

We're definitely looking forward to heading back to Red Dog Saloon to sample the menu in the the coming months 

Evening was welcomed by these lovely people
