We say…

Along a quiet street in Beeston is a hidden gem of Nottingham, the wonderful vegetarian restaurant Café Roya. During the day the restaurant operates as the Flying Goose Café, so whatever meal you’re heading out for, you’ll love this quirky, high-quality independent restaurant. It’s just down the road from the University of Nottingham’s main campus and is easily accessed from all over Nottingham thanks to great bus links and its proximity to both Derby Road and Queens Road.

The restaurant inside is decorated with gorgeous mosaic tiles, Indian throws and comfy cushions, as well as proper dining chairs. You’ll love the exposed brickwork and fresh flowers, as well as the night time fairy lights and candle-lit tables, which make it perfect for a fun catch-up with friends as well as a romantic date. The staff’s passion for vegetarian cuisine is evident, and even before you eat you’ll recognise the amount of care and work that is put into your dining experience.

The menu is carefully designed each month to make the most of fresh, local organic produce. There is a fantastic range of dishes, so rest assured that meat-eaters, vegetarians, vegans and even gluten-free diners will find something to suit their tastes. Recent favourites among diners have included a starter of nectarine and feta salad with lemon poppy seed dressing and tempura beetroot. For a main course, expect satisfying, beautifully presented dishes such as a broad bean and spinach burger with home made buns, cassava chips and a root and apple slaw. A summery favourite is their vegetable paella, bursting with smoky, rich flavours and as tasty as anything you'll find with meat or fish included. Don’t miss out on their desserts, though, as they specialise in both Indian favourites such as gajar halwa, as well as unusual dishes like rosewater and pistachio Eton mess, served with honey-poached apricots.

Café Roya in Beeston, Nottingham truly is an incredible find, with plenty on offer and a warm, friendly atmosphere. Vegetarians and omnivores alike will be sure to find great options here, so stop by for a unique meal whenever you can. Be sure to book, though, as this intimate local favourite fills up quickly.
