Caribbean Queen, on Mansfield Road in Sherwood, proudly provides the West Indian community of Nottingham with a fix of traditional island flavours. Its fame extends beyond just the Caribbean community, however, and they are fast becoming a local favourite in northern Nottingham, as locals take to its menu of spicy, sweet and filling dishes. All the big hitters are there: jerk chicken, ackee & saltfish, oxtail and callaloo, so you can be sure of an authentic Caribbean feast every time you step through the door.
Think of the things that spring to mind when you think of the Caribbean: beautiful beaches, permanent sunshine, palm trees… not exactly things that you would immediately associate with suburban Nottingham. On Mansfield Road in Sherwood, though, you can find a little corner of the Caribbean, in the form of Caribbean Queen, a restaurant serving up island cuisine to the hungry public of the East Midlands. With a menu that encompasses the diversity of food available across Jamaica, Trinidad and beyond, you can be assured of an authentic experience of the spicy, sweet and hearty food native to the West Indies.
The credentials of Caribbean Queen on Mansfield Road in Sherwood are beyond question. It began as a small catering venture, providing food to events within the Nottingham Caribbean community, and were so successful that it expanded into a bricks and mortar restaurant. The menu is heavy on the classics; jerk chicken, curry mutton, brown stew chicken and the national dish of ackee & saltfish all feature, alongside staple sides like rice & peas, callaloo and dumplings. Why mess with the classics though, when they are done as well as they are here?

Excellent meal, first time eating Caribbean and won't be the last. Highly recommend the curried mutton. Some great beers too. It is fine just to go in for a drink too.
We had a friendly reseption at Caribbean Queen. The meal was delicious but it was some time arriving. Could this be because of the their take-away trade?
The food was delicious, the decor was clean and pleasant, The staff were polite and helpful. Service was slow, but we were told at the start that all the food was cooked fresh, so we did not mind. With free parking across the road, it was a good evening out.
Lovely venue. Fantastic and friendly staff. Slight wait for the food but boy was it worth it. Humongous portions of mouth watering tasty food. The rum punch is to die for. 100 % recommended.
Nice staff. Service was good if only a bit slow and being short staffed. Food was good appeared freshly made. Would go back as it was very quite. Need a better selection of music it was on a loop and had to be restarted every 30 minuets.
