Squeak is by far my favourite restaurant and the best place to get your hands on delicious vegetarian food. The restaurant has a very homely, 1970s feel, decorated with warm colours and mismatched furniture. The menu changes on a regular basis, and is always inventive and exciting, with lots of choice for both vegetarians and vegans. I visited with a large group of meat eater friends for a birthday one year and they all loved the food and were very pleasantly surprised with how tasty everything was. Alongside great food, there is also a fantastic selection of both alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, including organic and vegan beverages.

Squeek, in Nottingham, is my favourite vegetarian restaurant. The a la carte menu offers vegetarian and vegan variations of the kind of meals that are definitely treats and not something that could be easily made at home – there’s no vegetarian cannelloni or pasta bakes here. The prices are affordable, a two course evening meal is about £15 and a three course around £17.00 and the comprehensive wine list offers a large of choice of vegetarian, vegan and organic wines and beers.
I definitely recommend the December meze menu – served with either mulled wine or non alcoholic punch.
The atmosphere is relaxed and the clientele mixed; its definitely a restaurant that you feel comfortable in whether you’ve dressed up or just rocked up as you are.

I had my 25th Birthday Party at this town centre curry house, which at that time was the most stereotypical Indian Restaurant you could get. Flock wallpaper, maroon and burgundy velvet seating and a lively atmosphere with last orders taken at 2am. Curry was amazing. Although it looks like it has had a lick of paint since, the curry is just as good, out-does its rivals and not much else has changed - probably the reason why it was able to host my 50th birthday party last year. Its a must-visit for curry lovers. Around £10 per head will get you a starter, main course and rice.
35 Heathcote Street, Hockley.
The website often has good offers, and print-off voichers.
A brilliant, unpretentious restaurant set in the original Boots shop in the trendy Hockley area of the city centre. Best food in Nottingham, hands down. Awesome meat dishes and vegetarians are exceptionally well catered for as well (starter: wild mushrooms on toast with a two minute poached egg anyone?)
Mains tend to be £10-15, and there is a set menu that offers two courses for £12.95 or 3 for £14.95.
It is a well presented Indian restaurant, with a great chef who does really authentic good food. Service is detailed and good, with a very pleasant ambience and relaxing bar - it's a great place to go.
Wollaton Vale, Wollaton, Nottingham
It's an Indian restaurant rather than a curry house, if that makes any sense.
The food is just fantastic - a million miles from the generic curry sauce used on different ingredients that so many places churn out. Fantastic food, good prices, good portions, friendly staff.
It's the best Indian food I've had outside of India, and since moving away from Nottingham I've really missed it. Despite hunting high and low in Bristol, where I am now, I've not yet found anywhere near its equal.
43 Mount Street Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, NG1 6HE
It is a vegetarian and vegan restaurant which will not disappoint a meat eater. Regular changing menus with 4 or 5 choices. Always an interesting variety of cultures and cuisines covered within the choices. Good short wine list of largely organic wines and beers. Friendly and attentive service.
