Curving brick vaulted ceilings with big skylights, and a feature wall of vivid green moss set the scene in this high-flying newcomer to Nottingham’s flourishing restaurant scene. Brought to life from a long-derelict coaching inn – much of the renovation work done by the chef, Alex Bond, himself – Alchemilla feels like an enveloping organic space with its simple wooden tables and open kitchen. Expect of-the-moment cookery that, while not remotely vegetarian, shifts attention more squarely onto the vegetable elements within tasting menus bristling with on-trend ingredients in intriguing combinations. Tender squid strips, hen of the woods mushrooms, buttermilk and black garlic add up to a playful take on carbonara, while grain risotto comes dressed in three-year-old Parmesan and truffle. A main meat dish partners spot-on venison with quince and puréed pumpkin. Striking desserts continue the innovative mood, matching Peruvian marigold sorbet with apple granita and espuma, and tangy cultured cream.
