I've really enjoyed reading the 1* reviews on this place. They're great. They just highlight to you how moronic some people are!!! We've wanted to come here for ages, but because wonderful Sat is so kind to his staff and gives them 3 days a week off, people in our industry have to come on work days...! Well worth it.... More

My wife and I and two friends booked the 10 Course tasting menu last Wednesday accompanied with the wine pairing option; plus we stayed in the amazing suites (rooms 7&8). From the minute we arrived we knew we were in for an amazing experience as a member of staff appeared from nowhere to offer us a welcome chocolate brownie.....a brownie... More

We had lunch for two in the Nucleus kitchen and it was wonderful. With only three tables and an open plan kitchen, The Nucleus offers an amazing experience, you feel like the chef is cooking just for you! The courses were creative and catered to all senses and the four tastes. The deer tartare and the aerated chocolate were our... More

It is 7 years since our last visit and the welcome was just as warm- the service brilliant. We stayed the night there and were very comfortable indeed, don't expect modern decor style (lots of brown and brown leather with shiny and sparkly accessories). We went for 10 courses and on reflection given we were both very tired it was... More

Situated just off the Nottingham ring road but you wouldn't know it. It seems quite rural. The turning is really easy to miss despite being well signposted. We celebrated my birthday by booking one of the Dinner, Bed and Breakfast packages. Room 1 was small but nicely presented with all sorts of little extras you wouldn't normally find. Dinner! What...

To thank my mother & father-in-law for their help and support in organising our wedding earlier in the year, my husband and I wanted to take them somewhere really special so we decided to take them to Sat Bains and we were not disappointed. We booked the kitchen bench which is situated in the pastry section of the kitchen. If... More

You can't beat a great meal combined with an entertaining evening with friends - and that's exactly what we got at Nucleus, the "restaurant within a restaurant" at Sat Bains. Nucleus is a separate building within the Bains complex, itself in the unlikely setting on the edge of an industrial estate and underneath a fly-over. But don't let that put... More

I can’t really add to much of the wonderful stuff that has been said before, but here are some of our thoughts. Firstly, there are very few negative comments on the site and all I can say to those people who did not have a good time is that you must have been very unlucky. So please give it another... More

An exceptional eating experience again - every course was immaculate and a sensation to the eye and the taste buds. I have now eaten in the restaurant, at teh chef's table and now the kitchen table. Personally, the chef's table for its feel of intimacy is the preference but the kitchen table does allow for good and fun interaction with... More
