Peachy Keens World Buffet

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "World buffet!"

Quote:
Not too long ago, I reviewed an all you can eat Chinese restaurant, May Sum, in Nottingham. In that review, I mentioned another all you can eat restaurant called Peachy Keens. My family recently came to Nottingham to see me and as everyone likes extremely different thing, I figured Peachy Keens would be a perfect place for us all. Peachy Keens is situated on Upper Parliament Street, only a minute further down the road to May Sum. From market square it will take about 5 minutes to walk here and from the train station about 20 minutes. Upper Parliament Street has great transport links with most of the buses stopping down here somewhere or another or very close to it. With Peachy Keens ...Read More

My first trip to the Nottingham Playhouse was due to going to see Romeo and Juliet this month. The playhouse is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and has some fantastic shows coming up to celebrate this. The playhouse is situated in Wellington Circus, just over the road and round a corner from the furthest end of Upper Parliament Street. Finding the playhouse was a little tricky though as I didn’t know where it was exactly and I had to consult a map on my phone to get there. As you walk up to the playhouse, the scene is amazing. Outside of the theatre is Anish Kapoor's 'Sky Mirror'. The sculpture is a fantastic thing to see and it shocked me as I didn’t know anything like that was...Read More

Harvester

Restaurant | "Great if you love meat!"

Quote:
On a recent weekend where my boyfriend came to visit, we decided to go out for dinner on a Saturday night to Harvester in Nottingham city centre. We didn’t quite anticipate how busy it would be though at 8pm. As we came up to the restaurant, we could immediately see people waiting for tables. After finding out that there was only a 20 minute wait, we decided to stick around and we only ended up waiting a little more than 10 minutes. A waitress led us to a 4 person table near the back of the restaurant, a little silly I thought considering there was only 2 of us and we didn’t need a table that big. While we had been waiting to be seated, we had both had time to look over the menu and decide...Read More

Ocean Nightclub

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Not nearly as bad as I expected"

Quote:
When I came back to university this year back in October, I found out that the Nottingham Trent Uni night had been moved to Ocean, a club I had never been to before. Ocean is well known for Trent students due to it hosting the night for societies on Wednesday nights but not being in one means I didn’t go. Just before Christmas, one of my flat mates and a friend decided to go on a Saturday night for Trent night and we didn’t know what to expect at all. Seeing as our friend is a student from another university, we got there really early as we knew she wouldn’t get in later on – it being a Trent Uni night and all. Doors open to Ocean at 10pm and that is pretty much when we got there. There wa...Read More
