A: You will find our restaurant in the beautiful 17th Century Newdigate House on Castle Gate, with Nottingham's stunning castle looking over us from the left and Maid Marian road to our right.

As we are in the centre of Nottingham, we have many public transport connections nearby and a range of large car parks just a short walk from our premises, such as Maid Marian and St James Street car parks.
