With restrictions lifting, cafes and restaurants are now allowed to open again but its not just Nottingham City Centre with great food. Beeston is a hub for great dining, whether it’s an afternoon coffee or a meal out to celebrate the end of exams, there are some great places to check out!
This is a new restaurant that celebrates South East Asian food whilst giving it a modern twist. They have stores in Beeston, Arnold and West Bridgford so they probably deliver in your area. I tried the takeaway for the first time a couple weeks ago trying both some classic dishes I already love and trying something new.
The prawn toast was amazing, not too greasy but still crispy. I also tried their pork belly bao buns, something I had never had before and though they were nice I’m not sure they were worth the price at £6.50 for the portion size. I also ordered their BBQ ribs and spring rolls both of which tasted great. Overall a great independent Asian takeaway even if the prices were a little higher than I expected.
This is one of my favourite places to go in Beeston, especially for brunch, but they also do a great quiz night (pre-COVID and hopefully again soon). They are part of the Lounge bar chain that also own Cosy Club so if you have been to a different Lounge bar or Cosy Club, it is the same type of restaurant.
The menu includes classic brunch items, burgers, and a range of tapas items if you want something smaller. The staff in here are always super friendly and dogs are also welcome, which I would say is a bonus. Food portions can be a little small, but I think that the atmosphere more than makes up for it. Would recommend for a date night or brunch with your friends.
The Circle Eatery Beeston
This eatery has been on my ‘to visit list’ for a while and I am looking forward to visiting soon. They have two menus depending on when you visit. The brunch menu has their circle big breakfast which looks amazing but also avocado on toast for if you want something smaller.
For lunch they offer a range of Gyros as well as salad, but their evening menu is where I get excited. The homemade pizzas that feature on their Instagram never fail to make me hungry and I cannot wait to try one, they also offer pasta dishes and burgers.
This Nottinghamshire bakery is a staple of most high streets in Nottingham so after walking past a few times I finally went into the one in Beeston. I was not disappointed. The freshly baked rolls tasted so good and were still crusty the next day which is a true achievement. I also tried a lamb and mint bake for my lunch, which was super nice and different to other bakes I’ve had before. So, if you happen to be in Beeston and want to support a local bakery I would 100% recommend as the produce was top quality and the staff were also really friendly.
