Prezzo

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Lovely food, terrible service!"

Quote:
As my manager was leaving, we sorted out a work’s night out/ leaving do. Someone else was picking the location for the restaurant and we ended up at Prezzo in Norwich. Now, there are two Prezzos in Norwich and the branch we went to was right near the train station so it was easy for everyone to get to/ from seeing as we were coming from out of the city. Before that night, Prezzo isn’t a restaurant that I had been to before but had always heard good things so I was looking forward to a nice meal and a fun night out. From the outside this branch of Prezzo looks very inviting with its large, open windows, large but pretty tree like plants and the cute tables and chairs set inside the iron fen...Read More

Restaurant | "One of the best Wetherspoons around"

Quote:
When my boyfriend and I go out to eat, Wetherspoons is generally our first port of call. We know what we get there, it's cheap and they're normally very easy to get to. The Bell Hotel is no different. Situated in the centre of Norwich, this branch of Wetherspoons is great for shoppers and those going out on a night time. We were heading the to theatre after our trip to this branch and it was in a great location for that.Much like every other Wetherspoons branch, The Bell Hotel is self service; meaning that you need to go to the bar to order your food and drinks. At this branch, you can see one of the bars as soon as you walk through the front doors. There are also other bars around the cor...Read More

The Yarborough Hotel

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "The 'old man's' Wetherspoons"

Quote:
On a recent trip back to Grimsby, I went out to eat more than I usually would. On the Saturday, I headed into town for drinks and some food at The Yarborough Hotel, which is actually a Wetherspoons branch. The Yarborough Hotel can be found right near Grimsby Train Station so it is in the perfect location if you have had a long journey or need to go somewhere easily with cases. Having grown up in Grimsby, I have always thought of this branch of Wetherspoons as ‘the old man’s pub’. This is because the other Wetherspoons is much trendier and livelier whereas this one is actually full of old men. However, it has a more relaxed atmosphere and doesn’t play any music which is nice if you do just want to go a...Read More

Bella Italia

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Not the best Italian restaurant"

Bella Italia Photo, Nottingham, England
Quote:
Just recently, my flatmate and other friends have been going out to eat quite a lot due to it getting closer to the end of university and with all of the work we have to do, we just cannot be bothered to cook sometimes. Somewhere I had never been before was Bella Italia, just because somewhere like Pizza Hut has always been a quicker option. However, we felt like a change and headed to the Bella Italia close to The Corner House cinema. == Location == Bella Italia is extremely accessible in Nottingham as it is right in the city center. There are many buses which stop just around the corner and the restaurant is only a 15 minute walk away from the train station. Bella Italia is a part ...Read More

Le Pain Quotidien

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Overpriced and squashed"

Quote:
When in London with my flatmate a little while back now, we had had more than enough of shopping and were wandering around Covent Garden, waiting to go to the theatre. Not wanting to walk around for another couple of hours, we saw the delicious looking cakes in the window of Le Pain Quotidien. They were far too tempting to pass up so we headed in to see what we could have. ADDRESS48 & 49 The MarketCovent Garden PiazzaLondonWC2E 8RFI had never heard of Le Pain Quotidien before but they are a company who pride themselves on baking fresh breads and pastries every single day and they also do large orders of full size cakes. On the lower floor of Le Pain ...Read More
