    Went there for lunch with my husband and our 2 pups! We sat outside in their very nice patio that had covers and heaters if needed. We were greeting by many staff that were attentive to us and our dogs. They brought water/bowls out for the dogs immediately when getting us. They have a cute dog menu of grilled chicken, scrambled eggs or a beef patty. The service was amazing. We will be back with our kids!

    Great Food!

    We went to Nottinghams for a late dinner. The patio has a great atmosphere! And the food was absolutely amazing! Delicious burger and tortellini. We ordered a side of grilled chicken for our pup and they brought it out on her own dish. They even have a water station for the dogs.

    Great place

    Went for lunch on Sunday. The service was great and fast. The food was really good. I had the Bloody Mary Bar which was awesome, they had anything and everything you could think of to add to the good portion of Titos Vodka they serve. Our dogs had the scrambled eggs and beef patty. The patio is large and the tables aren't close. I highly recommend, we'll be back!

    Great Breakfast!!

    Was a great and full breakfast. Service was great on their patio, and brought fresh water for the dogs.

    Waffle on the weekend was good. Combo was a large portion of eggs and bacon.

    Love this place

    Not only are they very pet friendly but they have yummy food too! I've had breakfast, and dinner here a couple times and have enjoyed it each time. The outdoor patio is very large and the tables are not crammed together which allows plenty of room to allow your dogs to be comfortable as well.

    Best place with dog(s)

    First time in big Bear with dogs. 2 small Heinz 57 breeds... Anyway Nottingham's is definitely the best place in the whole city when you want to have good food and have a dog or two. Wide patio with water station for dogs, dog menu, great food for humans, Happy hour 3-6:30 Sunday through Friday.

    Brunch with my beast

    Absolutely love that not only do they have a pet friendly patio but the staff is very loving caring and considerate of people's furry children. They offer complimentary cool bowls of water, and served my pooch her scrambled eggs in a perfect portion paper bowl. We enjoyed our breakfast thoroughly.

    Best Dog-friendly Restaurant in Big Bear Lake

    I absolutely love going here with my dog! The wait staff is awesome, the food is great, and they really cater to people who want to bring their dogs out to dinner with them. I loved it there so much, and so did my dog, that we went there three times in three days. Next trip to Big Bear will definitely include going to Nottingham's!
