Boozy Bones is fairly new on the restaurant scene in Nottingham, so my friend Danielle and I decided to give it a go one Friday night.
We booked a table for 8pm to find the place fairly quiet – perhaps because it’s new and not many people know about it, or perhaps because of the weather (it was freezing cold and raining!)
The décor at Boozy Bones Nottingham was nice – a mix of minimalistic wooden floors, with mosaic murals, a (slightly creepy) fox taxidermy, and a shelf full of trinkets (including an Alice in Wonderland picture!)
The name Boozy Bones speaks for itself in terms of what it offers – booze and meat! I opted for a Basil Bramble cocktail with gin, lemon, sugar, basil syrup and cassis. My friend chose a Krakken – gin, curacao, cranberry and lime. At £6.50 each, they really were quite cheap!
We both opted for burgers – I chose the southern fried chicken burger (minus the bacon). It was really tasty and the portion size was just right (some places can pile your plate so high that it looks a bit unappetizing, but not here.)
We didn’t get desserts as we were saving ourselves for more cocktails, but I’ve got my eye on the peanut butter toffee cheesecake, so will have to go back again to Boozy Bones Nottingham at some point to give it a try!
The staff were lovely, and with our meal and drinks coming to under £17 each, it was really good value for money.
Boozy Bones has a great location in central Hockley, surrounded by plenty of bars. It’s a nice addition to Nottingham’s nightlife; and its casualness means you could drop in for a quiet meal on a weeknight; or equally make it your starting point for a proper night out. I will definitely be going back again!
