Wife and I eat brealfast here because it was close to our resort and we had a 10 percent off. Waitress was very good and on top of things so that made our visit enjoyable. I got scrimp and crab omelet and the wife got french toast. My food was over the top great and my wife enjoyed hers but... More

Good food and good service. $$$ There is an outdoor seating area that looks like a nice place to dine as well.

The food here was ok, not the quality for the price. The worst about this restaurant was the service. We sat in the bar area and the server was literally more interested in the locals table next to us than our table. She would walk right past us multiple time to check on them and ignore us. I asked for... More

We stopped for a late lunch and were disappointed after reading reviews. The service was poor. The food good, but an average selection. Nothing special and not outstanding. The decor was very nice, better than most.

We had a really nice dinner at Nottinghams on the patio. It was a beautiful evening and our service was the best so far in Big Bear. They have a pretty good happy hour until 6:30 Sun-Thursday. Will definitely return.

Food was pretty good, service was average. Don't ask for a bacon cheeseburger, you will never get your bacon. I recommend the Chicken Basil, very good.

This is a great place, but it seems to depend on who your server is. Service in the restaurant downstairs was better than the tavern upstairs. And the outside seating "Camelot Courtyard" or something, is very nice. The fried pickles are AWESOME!

We have been vacationing in Big Bear for over 20 yrs. and decided to try Nottinghams for my Birthday dinner. Started with the Tavern upstairs for cocktails before dinner. The Bartender was great and noticed he was a one man show for a very busy packed room. He was doing the best he could while the owners were coming behind... More
