The food here is so good!! I had the rack of lamb and my husband had chicken picatta. It was delicious! Our waitress was a sweetheart. We had "fine dining" downstairs and then went upstairs for drinks afterward. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone!

“Excellent Food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2006

While in Big Bear over the weekend of the Antique Car Show, my husband and I stopped into Nottinghams on a very busy Saturday night. Even with all the excitement, we were treated with excellent service. After our dinner (the best rack of lamb I have EVER had), we went upstairs to Friar Tuck's Tavern for cocktails and enjoyed music from the jukebox (no charge).

Anyone visiting Big Bear MUST enjoy a meal at Nottinghams.

We have been coming to Big Bear for a long time now. We have a family home in Moonridge, and we love it here! We have been to many restaurants and we have our favorites. On Saturday April 1, my husband with our 2 children decided to try Nottingham's. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food, so we decided we would try breakfast there the next morning. We came back the next morning and as the hostess was ghoing to seat us, we asked to sit in the same room that we sat in the day before. She then told us that there were "NO CHILDREN ALLOWED" in that room. We stated that we sat in the same room yesterday and there were us and others with children in that room. The hostess was not apologetic at all. She then started walking to seat us in the other room, we opted not to stay, we walked out. As we walked by the window, we did see other children in that room. We have been to many places in the 13 years we have been coming to Big Bear and have never experienced anything as rude or as prejudiced. Needless to say we are not happy with Nottingham's and we wiil definitely not be back and will not recommend anyone to stay or eat there! (We did not stay at the hotel)

“A Wonderful Restaurant in Big Bear, CA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2005

On a recent weekend we celebrated our anniversary in Big Bear, CA. It was difficult trying to choose from the many restaurants in the area where to have dinner, but we decided on The Nottingham Room at the Robinhood Resort. The cozy, elegant room reminded us of an English inn, with stained glass windows and a fireplace. The staff was very courteous and professional but the service was a little slow. They had a nice selection of foods and everything was very good. When they heard it was our anniversary, they brought us a large slice of cheesecake topped with their special sauce made of three kinds of berries and a candle on top.
