About time we had a dedicated thread to one of my favourite subjects...eating and drinking. If you've had a particularly memorable meal, tried a superb beer or terrific takeaway...let us know about it so we can all give it a try.

I'll start the ball rolling (or the belly rumbling) with a recommendation for the best Italian food this side if Milan. They're based in York and Beverley, are very authentic and offer al fresco dining all year round. Very reasonable pricing and with a loyalty card you can get 10% off that. Top cocktails too...they sell Mojito by the jug.Smile

Nosh and splosh? Sounds like a night with a lass I used to "know"...... 

That's a negative ... and right now I need two positives: one to cancel out the negative ... and one just so I've got a positive

I've been to the Beverley one and can thoroughly recommend it. Especially the Mojitos Pinch

450 Above, in Wickersley.
Owned and run by a fellow Owl, Jez Ward, and featured in The Times top ten hidden gems outside London.
Does a 5-10-5 menu. Fiver for starters and deserts and a tenner for your main.
Very reasonable wine list and beer prices as well.

If you want a table on a Saturday, though, be prepared for a month wait.

2 curry house recommendations, both on Ecclesall Road - Ashoka and Ambar....simply sublime food.

The Raaz in Chesterfield is a very nice Indian, not your standard chicken korma and onion bahji fayre.  

That's a negative ... and right now I need two positives: one to cancel out the negative ... and one just so I've got a positive

Walked past there the other day and the smell nearly drives you mad. I'll make this my first priority for visiting as I'm a bit of a carnivore.Smile

Smoke Barbeque is immense - the brisket and pulled pork are both gorgeous.

On the drinks front had a good night down Eccy Road on Saturday - not been for years. Did the new place The Pointing Dog (ex Polish Club), Porterbrook, Porter Cottage and Lescar.

agree with Ambar not the Ashoka, currently using the Maazi Hathersage bit pricey but better than the usual fare

Best curry house in Nottingham, for me, is Spices in Wollaton.
The city centre ones look nice but the food is overpriced and i've had better take-aways than most of them

I tried Smoke BBQ on Sunday. The surrounding restaurants (Cafe Rouge, Piccolino, and a Chinese Buffet) were all very sparsely populated but the BBQ was rammed. If you like meat this is for you. The beef (I tried the brisket and Mrs CDLF had the ribs) was very tender but a little dry for my taste, but they have certainly caught the imagination with this concept. I shall give it another try and probably have a steak which I can specify how I like it cooked.

Café Rouge sparsely populated then cdlf? Doesn't bode well....especially as their establishment (which has been there for a dozen years at least) on Eccy Road has closed down.

Just back from my trip to the Wolds. So many decent boozers but the one that really stands out is The Fleece at Bishop Wilton. Good beer (Pennine Bitter, Copper Dragon etc) and really good home cooked food. The chips are home made and very moorish and the sarnies are doorsteps. Game a speciality, all shot locally. They do rooms too. 

This is the last time I'm painting on a grin.

The one in Meadowhall has closed as well Franco...I think they might have gone bust. I've eaten there a few times and although the food was OK there was never enough on your plate for the price. A case of accounts doing portion control??

What used to be Cragrats on back whack route to Hudds via Flouch has changed hands, same people that ran Butchers Arms at Hepworth have got it now and that used to be spot on, anyway, givin it a spin on Sunday and will report back!

Just an update on a couple of venues. On Christmas Eve we went with friends to the Prince of Wales at the traffic lights, top of Eccleshall Road. A big pub restaurant with an extensive menu. It was rammed being Christmas but we had a good night and the food and wine was good. Considering how busy it was the service was excellent.
Enjoyed it enough to go again last week...and the food was atrocious, the wine tasted like malt vinegar which for £19 quid is disgraceful...it wasn't off, just poor quality... but the service was still pleasant. Hmmm!

But here's a recommendation...if you are ever in Lincoln try The Barge moored in Brayford Pool. Had an excellent steak, cooked exactly to my liking and once again the service and the wine was good.

That's always been a great place. Used to be the Woodstock Diner when I was a lad, every birthday was there or uncle sams/Yankees.

If you're after a decent red wine, Chateau Musar is outrageously good. Lebanese from Bekkar valley around 19 quid a bottle from waitrose.

One I forgot to mention before...The Top Red Lion at Grenoside is now doing food, and it's pub grub with service...but very informal. Not special but plenty on your plate and very reasonabley priced with decent red wine at £11 a bottle. Good for an unplanned pop in meal.
