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

We like to eat at Nottingham's every now and then, and have never been disappointed. The service has always been great, and the food is delicious.

Super cool place, I try to stop by here whenever visiting the mountain. Staff is always friendly and outgoing and the food is certainly above average. Prices are reasonable and there is never too long of a wait. Would recommend to anyone who has not tried before!

Good food, quesadilla and the tri tip special were satisfying. We had a great server, very helpful and sweet. We were sat by a rather rude server who we luckily didn't have as our waitress. It was surprising there weren't more people there for the playoff game, but tables filled up around lunch time. This restaurant is part of an... More

Very good prime rib. They have a small restaurant with table cloths and set the overflow in their downstairs bar, which is just ok.

This place really has potential, but seemed a little uncared for. We were in town looking for a nice date night and picked Nottingham's. We walked in and were pointed upstairs by a sign and seated ourselves. We sat and looked at the menu for about 10min. before being helped. The waitress seem VERY busy, but there couldn't have been...
