About The Tapastry

A true taste of the Mediterranean on Heathcoat Street, The Tapastry is the ultimate location for – you may have already guessed it – tapas. This is one Hockley establishment you don’t want to miss out on. Serving the freshest Spanish dishes that Nottingham has seen in recent years, this restaurant is huge with the city’s amateur food critics and those looking for a bit of sunshine on cloudy days.

Further Information

One of Nottingham’s most popular restaurants, The Tapastry on Hockley’s Heathcoat Street is serving up the city’s freshest tapas, finest wines and hearty Spanish-inspired mains. Bright, airy and clean, the restaurant is refreshingly laidback, providing the perfect environment for studying or reading – there’s even free Wifi and a 10% discount for local university students from Tuesday to Friday from 12 pm to 3 pm – and for relaxing with friends.

The Tapestry in Nottingham’s Hockley recommends that diners take one tapas dish for a starter and three for a main, or simply to mix and match the tapas with bigger courses like paella or those from the Specials Board. Vegetarians have it made here, with an array of options including patatas bravas, empanadillas, aubergine tumbet, and stuffed cherry tomatoes. Meatheads can get on board with tapas like the belly pork, apple and morcilla, the chorizo and judion beans and the Serrano croquettes. And of course, you can’t go wrong with a big plate of chicken, chorizo and pork paella when serious hunger pangs strike. Because The Tapastry is open just five days a week, reserving ahead is advised.

Delicious food that was clearly cooked with love & care. We had a really good night thank you, good to chat with Matt as we were finishing up too. It was the first time I had eaten here but will definitely be back!

Unpretentious laid back atmosphere with the background music enabling a conversation without having to shout. (6 points for that alone.) Food was delicious with some interesting choices as well as the staple tapas available. The prices were reasonable enough to allow for experimentation without dreading a costly mistake. Wine not the cheapest but the lowest priced was very acceptable. The service was very good. Not too 'in your face' and the young woman that served us succeeded in getting the tapas choice my daughter specifically went for. Enjoyed the evening and would definitely go again.

Table for 2 booked in for 7.30 on Wednesday evening. Was given a choice of where to sit and received a very warm welcome. The staff member realised myself and my friend felt too warm, so immediately asked if we wanted her to open a window. The food was excellent and the staff member helped us choose one of our dishes. Very good price on food (3 for 2). I will definitely be returning.

This is a lovely place for enjoying tapas every bit as good as you'd hope for in a bar in Spain. We've eaten here several times now and never been disappointed. The honey glazed baby chorizo was my favourite on this occasion. I recommend the Tapastry to anyone looking for delicious tapas, with friendly service, in an ideal position in Hockley.

We booked a table for 4 on Saturday evening. It is located on the edge of Hockley in Nottingham. The atmosphere was great and typical Spanish music was on nicely. Bar area was quite busy but dining area was bit quiet since we dined in early evening. The tapas we ordered were all freshly cooked and taste good. I would recommend this restaurant for any tapas lover.

local Tapas bar with a good atmosphere and a broad crossection of dishes. Food freshly cooked with good quality ingredients including rabbit and guinea fowl. Service was unobtrusive but there when you needed it and overall good value for money. Enough vegetable dishes to enable an interesting time if you are vegetarian.

We really enjoyed our first night in along time out away from our little girl. The restaurant is small, cosy and a very laid back and relaxing place to be. You don't feel rushed to vacate the table and can take your time and enjoy the food. The food (and Sangria!) were and we would recommend tapastry to our friends.

Authentic, delicious food and nice setting..I recommend if you are after a casual natural setting for dinner and tasty tapas except for Patatas Bravas:) But this is not a big deal as the rest of our orders were absolutely perfect👍🏻👍🏻

Really lovely food served in cosy intimate surroundings. Would definitely go again. Did not leave feally uncomfortably full as some tapas places will leave you feeling. The only downside was the shortage of chocolate tart for dessert!

Lovely find. Food was superb and good value - will definitely be going again. It was only half full on a Saturday night so i hope they can do enough advertising to get more people in and keep it open.

Really nice place - great food - ordered 3 tapas each and that was plenty. Only downside was the house white was poor - but they took it back and the next glass offered was fine.
