    I returned to Encounters with my wife after a three year absence mainly due to it being fully booked and with us living nearly two hours away so our weekends in Nottingham are limited. We were not disappointed it was as we remembered, excellent food with an excellent host in the owner Paul. The charm of the restaurant is that you don’t feel like just another customer, the restaurant is massive but comfortable, the host is extremely friendly and knowledgeable without being imposing. The meal was beautiful, I will not bore you with our full menu choices but I did have the beef encounter and being someone with a large appetite I left the building well satisfied. Neither of us could manage the third course. We will be back in December and booking early to make sure we don’t miss out on this treat again

    Joined several friends here on Sat (13/4/2019). It was the first time I'd been but it won't be the last. The food was great, the portions generous, everything was beautifully cooked, the prices for both food and drinks very reasonable, and nothing was too much trouble. (Oh and doggy 'bags' available for those who couldn't manage to finish their food!

    Excellent food and service once again. Paul the owner was very attentive and accommodating to our two youngest grandchildren as they do not have a children’s menu but I can assure you they didn’t go hungry. I would recommend to anyone who hasn’t paid a visit, we look forward to returning soon as usual

    Great place to dine, food is amazing, don’t change please because your great as you are. We had a group booking for about 20 people, all the food came out together and hot, there were so many little touches that made the meal very special.

    Daughter's been begging me to go since she attended one of "Encounters" Tasting Menu evening's, a while back. With the visit of friends from London, we booked for 4: with the intentions of going out to show them the local Night Life afterwards. Big mistake! I opted for Crab Salad starter and should have stopped there...it was a HUMONGOUS portion and sad to say, I left more than half of it, intent on 'making room' for my Steak/Stilton Sauce, main. A.b.s.o.l.u.t.e.l.y n.o. c.h.a.n.c.e! Two weeks later, I'm STILL regretting only being able to finish half of the portion served to me and I N-E-E-D to go back to experience it again. Fabulous host in Paul and quite rightly, extremely proud of the beautiful food they serve up. Daughter and visiting friends all extremely happy with EVERYTHING they ate. I, selfishly, have put off writing a Review...hoping to keep this gem of a Restaurant all to myself. But I just can't do it. EVERYONE needs to have an "Encounter" - at least once in their life! Y-O-U-W-I-L-L-N-O-T-B-E-D-I-S-A-PP-O-I-N-T-E-D!

    Paul is a superb host. Party was 30 in number, orders had been placed before hand from the festive menu. Desserts were chosen on the night from the extensive range. I had melon starter, roast turkey mains then chocolate cake. Carling was the pint of choice. Great service and the food came out quickly considering the size of party we had. Highly recommended I would go again without hesitation.

Waiter had a great sense of humour, food was outstanding, generous portions with on the house extras included, there is a reason this restaurant has been here for so long, they look after and treat people right!!

    Situated at the bottom of Mansfield road ive passed this restaurant a thousand times and allways said we will try it. I should have gone years a go . The food is superb,it's hot and there is plenty of it. An excellent menu with to much choice. I had the beef Wellington it was lush. Must mention Paul the manager,he was accommodating with a great sense of humour. The only warning I can give about this restaurant is if your wife,husband,partner eats like a sparrow beware the portions are big, but they do let you take the leftovers home. We will be going back hopefully on a regular basis.

    I must admit that I was a little reticent about sharing the following report with other TripAdvisor 'viewers', simply because part of me wanted to keep it secret, so I would have no problem in booking further visits. Anyway, we were introduced to Encounters a few weeks ago. Our hosts recommended the prawn cocktail. This would not normally be my first choice of starters but I ordered it anyway and wow, was I glad I did. Described as 'one of the biggest and best prawn cocktails ever' it was a meal in itself. Loads of prawns on a bed of shredded lettuce with cucumber, tomatoes, water melon and grapes, mouthwatering! For mains I opted for traditional steak and kidney pudding 'just like grandmother used to make' and once again a very accurate statement. The portion was huge and came with 5 or 6 vegetables. Another in our party had the beef encounter, a fillet steak stuffed with Stilton and wrapped in puff pastry with a creamy port sauce which was equally impressive and delicious. The meals were washed down with house wines at just £12.95 a bottle and that was for a litre! I hope it will not belong before we will visit again to enjoy further treats from the extensive menu.

    As part of my birthday celebrations I had dinner at this establishment. My starter was stilton tart. A large piece of said tart with a salad garnish and chutney. The tart was well made with a crisp case and served warm. The main course was beef stroganoff with rice. The portions were very generous (more than I could manage) but well prepared and presented if a little under seasoned. The host was very friendly and attentive. All in all great food at very good prices in a warm friendly atmosphere.

    I spent a lovely lunch time at this charming restaurant. Nothing was too much trouble for the very amicable and witty host. One immediately felt spoilt and the varied lunchtime menu made it difficult to choose especially when it came to dessert as there was so much choice and everything was cooked to perfection. Yes the portions are hearty, but complain when you don't get enough not when there's too much! All in all, I would strongly recommend visiting this Nottingham gem. It was recommended to me by word of mouth and me and those who accompanied me will most certainly do the same. "Thank you for a lovely afternoon" xxx
