The University of Nottingham, University Park Campus, Nottingham, NG7 2RD
A university campus may seem an unusual place for a restaurant, yet surrounded by the plants, trees and assorted wildlife which populate the University of Nottingham grounds, The Hemsley enjoys a more privileged location than most. Well-appointed and impressive - complete with gorgeous chandeliers - this restaurant accommodates up to 100 diners and is ideal for private functions including civil weddings, birthday parties and dinner parties. A small but perfectly formed menu offers variety and quality and is supported by an extensive, reasonably priced wine list.

Although tempted by hearty winter vegetable soup and the mushroom and Stilton Wellington, we eventually opted for tangy beetroot-cured salmon and flavoursome duck, ham and chicken terrine. Both starters were visually delightful, offering spring-time colours with a sprinkling of herbs. The pan-roasted chicken supreme which followed, with smoked paprika gnocchi and red wine sauce, was perfectly cooked and heavenly. Succulent cod cheeks served with an olive, sun-dried tomato and goat's cheese polenta cake in chive sauce intrigued my companion, and one mouthful put a smile on her face that didn't leave until every morsel was cleared. Opt for a traditional dessert or cheeseboard to round off a very satisfying dining experience - I'd recommend the apple and blueberry crumble or exquisite pecan and pistachio tart.

A genuine revelation, The Hemsley is lacking in pretension, instead focusing on excellent fare fronted by a welcoming, attentive and friendly team - a definite must for Nottinghamshire foodies.
