why peggys?


Founded by a pianist & a singing chef, based in Nottingham’s Creative Quarter

We make our own bread using bio-diverse, Lincolnshire grown wheat, milled in north Nottinghamshire by wind power. Our halloumi cheese is produced by an independent family business from Syria, now based in Yorkshire & is the finest we’ve tasted. All our dishes are prepared using fresh, locally sourced seasonal produce wherever possible. We have many vegan & vegetarian choices…it’s good for you, and utterly delicious! Our takeaway packaging  is recyclable (except the plastic coated lids on the baked rice dishes)

Many of our recipes are based on our chef’s childhood experiences growing up in Iran. We’ve just begun to explore the wealth of delights that Middle Eastern cuisine has to offer. 
Our live acts reflect the diversity of the UK and international music scene, showcasing the best jazz, blues, soul, world & folk artists. 

What people are saying about us:

In just over a year, Peggy’s Skylight has become an iconic venue in Nottingham, loved by musicians and music lovers alike. Calling Peggy’s a Jazz club does not do it justice. Not only has it given a platform to amazing local, national and international musicians from across the spectrum of jazz, hip hop, blues, roots and world music to thrill us with their creativity and integrity, as a music lover in my 50s it’s such a delight to listen to all these jewels in a venue that offers the warmest hospitality and delicious food and drink.

And because Peggy’s offers its stage and fabulous sound system to young and up and coming local musicians to play in a truly professional environment it really is becoming the heart and soul of our local music scene. It’s almost impossible to imagine Nottingham without Peggy’s.

Fred Paterson – Associate Professor, Sustainable Business, University of Derby

Peggy’s Skylight puts Nottingham on the International Jazz Circuit with world class food and drinks. Looking forward to being there again soon.

Brilliant venue. Have been twice and each show entirely different. The food choices are good although I would give the... Turkish Delight a miss. However, if you enjoy jazz then I would thoroughly recommend Peggy's Skylight as a place to go but book ahead if you more

Went to the twilight session at Peggy's last night.. Doors opened at 530 for a quick beer and band played 6 to 7.... Brilliant. Wonderful evening. Great little meal included in the price. Out by 730 to have a couple of more drinks and back home by 930. Twilight is a great option. Another show later in the evening. Was tempted to go and hear them again. Next time more

I'm going out on a limb to suggest this is the classiest jazz venue in the UK... There... I've said it. The joint is... run by two fabulous musicians who make it their mission to not only thoroughly entertain guests but also feed them top-quality (Middle Eastern inspired) more

We are so glad Peggy's is back open! This was our third visit and we've never been disappointed. This eclectic mix of... live music they have is amazing.

Really nice place with a cool vibe. Professional and friendly staff. Great on a band night, as we experienced. Food... was delicious and presented with a lovely style. This was our first visit and will definitely go again.Two things I will advise:Parking outside is hit and miss, so maybe park in nearby NCP.Portions are small, even the pizza, so be prepared to spend £25 or more per person if you are a healthy eater, hungry or planning a full more
