On the 2nd floor of Tilt Bar, Sample Market Kitchen is a small, 24 cover restaurant opened earlier this year serving unique, small plates of food that will surprise you. 

With no menu, there are no limitations. Simply pick an ingredient off our blackboard & let us do the rest...

Our ethos is hinged upon the integration of seasonal, local produce with our diverse chef's influences to create spectacular and distinctive dishes. All the ingredients

used by our chefs are either made on-site, sourced from local markets.

Our open kitchen means you can watch our chefs work their magic - creating fresh and delicious dishes from scratch, every time!

If you love small dishes, in a casual relaxed setting, you won't be able to resist Nottingham's best-kept secret, resting above our cocktail bar.

Our concept is all about trying something new and sharing your food experience with your fellow diners. So taste each other's dishes, try new flavour combinations with our homemade oils, pickles and salts, and chat to our team.

Due to some unforeseen staff & logistical issues we’re having to delay the reopening of Sample restaurant.


We’re really sorry for the inconvenience caused & hope to be up & running again soon!

In the meantime, Tilt bar is still open with no bookings needed as we operate a walk-in only policy. Now we’ve got some extra tables upstairs, we can fit even more of you lovely people in for some delicious cocktails!

Look forward to seeing you soon and watch this space for Sample reopening updates!
