Nottingham – great things #8

Much as coffee is an important part of my day – so is food. Delilah’s is one of Nottingham notable ‘deli’s’ – in fact in its second incarnation.


It was always a very cool shop on High Pavement but moved in late 2012 to 12 Victoria Street. The building is one of the fine Victorian stone buildings from a rich architectural period in Nottingham – until recently it housed HSBC Bank. It is rightly Listed – you only need go in and look at the backdrop – notably the ceiling.

The new deli is 3000 square feet. Big for a deli!

It needs to be though – they stock an amazing variety of food from around the world – and some more locally sourced. There are over 150 cheeses. Quality is clearly key here.

But better still there are seat weber you can get an array of snacks and meals – with at a bar on the ground floor or at more formal tables on the mezzanine level. Lunch is great – but so is breakfast!

The only downside – it’s so good everyone knows about it – and it can often be busy. Trying to get a table will include a wait at peak times. But the wait is worth it.

A deserved place on the list!
