The atmosphere was cosy and welcoming, the service was friendly and speedy. The food was delicious and the portion size was perfect for lunchtime. The bill was extremely reasonable, I will definitely return for the evening menu again with my family.

I eat here on a regular basis as I work in the area. I have never had a bad meal out of the Derg Arms and would recommend it to anyone. The coffee and scones out of Mona's Front Room are lovely also. What really makes it special is the fantastic staff who make you feel part of the family.... More

Not nearly as good as its near neighbour Redpepper but standard pub grub willingly served and ,if one steers clear of the steaks, reasonable value. The one waitress scurries around and tries hard but ,unsurprisingly, gets very stretched when more than a few tables are occupied. Essentially this is a refuelling stop.

From the moment we arrived until we left we could not have been made more welcome. The room was very comfortable, clean - very roomy bathroom. Excellent food both for dinner and breakfast. I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.
