NOTTINGHAM RESTAURANT ALCHEMILLA RANKS 53RD BEST RESTAURANT IN UK

Congratulations to Chef Alex Bond, whose first solo venture Alchemilla in Nottingham has been ranked 53rd in the UK at the 2018 Estrella Damm National Restaurant awards.
A glittering ceremony at London’s Hurlingham Club on Monday evening saw chefs across the country celebrate making the list.
Alchemilla has been open just 10 months so the accolade is a celebratory one. Alex Bond said: “To be ranked alongside such incredible restaurants is a huge compliment and proof that anything is possible. I am so proud of our team for the tremendous amount of hard work that they have put in over the last year. Without their passion, dedication and work ethic it wouldn’t have been possible, so this award is thanks to them.”
As well as being ranked in the top 100, Alex was also a finalist in the Chef to Watch category which was eventually awarded to Tom Brown of Cornerstone in London. Here are all the restaurants that featured in the 100-strong list. A special congratulations to Alex and the team at Alchemilla – I will see you very soon.
