Square Meal Review of Restaurant Sat Bains with Rooms ?

A barn conversion holed up in Nottingham’s industrial wastelands is the unlikely setting for Sat Bains’ classy restaurant-with-rooms – a “ground-breaking” eatery that is guaranteed to blow your socks off with its wondrous, two-Michelin-starred food. Who else would name an amazing amalgamation of locally gleaned pickings after the venue’s postcode? Otherwise, there are big hits galore, all colour-coded according to the five primary ‘tastes’ (salt, sweet, sour, bitter, umami) – from chicken ‘muesli’ or ‘black-white’ scallops to lamb’s sweetbreads with Puy lentils and mint or roe deer with mushrooms, pine and lichen. Also watch out for a special, unannounced extra (perhaps a renowned riff on ‘ham, egg and peas’). Amanda Bains and her team provide sweet-natured, “insightful” service – especially when it comes to suggesting suitable choices from the cleverly organised, top-flight wine list. Despite the odd quibble about the restaurant’s location and slightly “oppressive” atmosphere, this is a “simply fabulous” experience.

  1. Wow. So this is what 2 Michelin star food is, and my goodness it’s good. But that’s a no brainer; what was incredible, was the whole experience – getting a taste of how you imagine the other half live, being treated like royalty! Restaurant Sat Bains only offer tasting menus and on Saturdays that means ten courses of rich, heavenly and decadent food. The style is very modern, with each course carefully designed to accentuate the five tastes of salt, sweet, sour, bitter and umami in varying levels to challenge your palette. Often these tastes were also combined in hot and cold quantities on the same plate to mess with my poor little mind, to an extent that I can’t really articulate how good it was...

    Samphire and Salsify :: Sat Bains

    I was a little bit nervous during the week leading up to our reservation at two Michelin starred Sat Bains in Nottingham. This was due to the cancellation policy; it’s a £75 a head charge if you cancel up to 5 days prior to your booking. But what if me or my gentleman companion came down with influenza? Or what if the traffic was so bad that we missed it altogether? Luckily for us the 2 hour 45 minute drive from London whizzed by and we made it with time to spare!...

Restaurant Sat Bains with Rooms’s Chef -

Winner of the BMW Square Meal Award for Best UK Restaurant 2007, the two-Michelin-starred Restaurant Sat Bains with Rooms is run by Sat & Amanda Bains on the outskirts of Nottingham. One of the UK’s most accomplished chefs, Bains helped to open the first Raymond Blanc brasserie in Oxford in 1996. A spell at L’Escargot followed, before he returned to the Midlands to head up the kitchen of the Martins Arms in Colston Basset. After being spotted by Michelin at the Ashbourne Gallery in Derbyshire, he won the Roux Scholarship in 1999, leading to a three-month stint at the then three-Michelin-starred Le Jardin des Sens in Montpellier. He returned to take up the post of head chef at Hotel des Clos in Nottingham & in 2002 renamed the restaurant there Restaurant Sat Bains at Hotel des Clos. In October 2004, Sat & Amanda bought the property & fully refurbished the dining room & its 11 bedrooms. In 2007, Bains served the starter at the ambassador’s banquet on the BBC’s Great British Menu.
