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 the last two years Peggys Skylight has fast become a go-to place for music lovers in Nottingham. An artist-led venture, the ambience combined with a delicious food offer and top quality music, gives it a unique and irreplaceable quality to the city. Independent venues such as this are crucial to the arts, not only now, but in ensuring a future for the development and enjoyment of art and culture in the future.

With diversity and inclusion at its heart, Nottingham Arts Mela is proud to work with Peggys, and fully behind any initiative to support the venue through these difficult times.

Sooree Pillay, co-Artistic Director, Nottingham Arts Mela

Peggy’s Skylight is the Ronnie Scott’s of the north! Cut from the same cloth with the same love of the music and attention to detail that has made it an essential venue in any tour. Its that perfect mixture of professionally run venue by musicians who know the music and are invested in the culture they are trying to promote. Like Ronnie’s it has a perfect amphitheatre for the delivery of intimate and meaningful shows with a great sound system and professional backline. They take risks in programming exciting music and engage with much needed cross generational approach to jazz and jazz culture which is essential for the long term development of the music and musicians.

To give you a direct example of how good they are, they help touring bands like myself by opening the venue on a down night, just to help me coordinate a tour around the UK. Respect to them and the scene needs venues like this.
