The Magic Garden


Hidden off the cobbled streets off the city of Nottingham’s Lace Market lies a floral arch, step through to find a truly beautiful place. The Magic Garden is a hidden spot for delicious food and delectable cocktails all in the most gorgeous surroundings.
The garden itself spreads out over three sections. The garden hosts vintage furniture, with floral displays and some truly photo worthy surroundings. That’s not all, the Magic Garden is home to a three story townhouse each floor with its own unique theme. The Ground Floor has three rooms each with botanical decor so even if the weather isn’t great there’s still a feeling of being outside. The first floor is set around multiple rooms to explore. It is a nod to the 80s with neon lights, bright vibrant wall art and graphic rugs. To compliment the first floor’s retro theme the second floor has nods to vintage. With references to sports clubs, smoking rooms and even your grandma's living room. Both these floors are available for private hire.
The menu is inspired by some of incredible international ingredients. This is showcased in selection of tapas dishes. These include smoked mackerel topped with pickled shallots and horseradish on top of a sourdough crisp, carrot & caraway seed hummus with sage oil and sourdough and mouth-watering pork belly skewers topped with popcorn crackling with a burnt apple puree. It doesn’t stop there the fresh sourdough flatbreads are topped with some of the finest ingredients. House favourites include chorizo, nduja sausage, chilli & sage honey or the roasted aubergine, harissa, pickled shallot & pomegranate.
Gin lovers rejoice. The Magic Garden has an expertly curated and delicious range of serves or you can make your own. They have some great house cocktails and mocktails, including Coco Blush (Tequila, Raspberry, Coconut Milk & Pineapple), Strawberry and Basil Fizz (Cognac, Strawberry, Lemon, Elderflower & Basil) or Finding Nemo (Tropical Red Leg Rum, Blue Curacao, Orange, Lemon & Lemonade garnished with a fish).
