TIER, Nottingham | Restaurant Review

TIER Nottingham

I love cheese. I love cocktails. So it's no surprise that I really liked TIER.

TIER is one the new guys in Nottingham, having only opened a few months ago. Specialising in cocktails and grilled cheese sandwiches, it's safe to say that I clocked it almost immediately.

It's situated on Pelham Street, opposite Bodega and next to Pit & Pendulum. Upon first impressions, the place looks pretty swanky from the outside. It's quite small and is usually absolutely packed when I've walked past on a Friday or Saturday night. It has some great views of Pelham Street as there's little benches along the big open windows at the front. 

Me and Jord were looking for something light to eat and a couple of drinks after the cinema and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get a taste of those grilled cheese sandwiches. We both ordered the fish finger sandwich gourmet melt on sourdough bread. This came with a side of mushy peas and we also shared some curly fries and some chicken strips.

I also ordered an English Garden cocktail: gin, lime and apple juice. This was a little sour but very yummy. Nottingham has seen some very good cocktail bars open recently and TIER is definitely up there with the best. Properly made and not short on alcohol.

The food came relatively quickly and was served on metal trays, as is the custom in a lot of the independents! The sandwich was great. It was oh-so-cheesy and made me so nostalgic for the fish finger sandwiches mum used to make when we were little. Grilled cheese is the epitome of comfort food and TIER's didn't disappoint.

The bread was crispy, not short on cheese and filled with fish goujons. I'm salivating as I'm writing this. My only criticism was that maybe possibly it was a little too cheesy - but is that really a criticism at all? It made it a little oily but honestly, I knew what I was signing up for here.

The mushy peas were nothing special but were a nice touch. Similarly, the curly fries were nice and the chicken strips were tasty but both were pretty basic and what you would expect.

We will definitely eat here again though! The melt was truly delicious and it's very reasonably priced. The sandwich cost £6.50 and I think the sides were £2.50 each and cocktails are £4 during happy hour. For two, it cost around £28, including two sandwiches, sides and a drink each. Thoroughly enjoyable.
