Belatedly this is a review of our celebrations on 2 January 2015. We live in Dorset but were married in Derby and wanted somewhere to celebrate there. We could not have chosen a better place. The function room was exactly right and our guests were very pleased to be in such a splendid room. I had seen the room on... More

Was there last Sunday 7 December, we held a private family party in the function room. The food was excellent. The staff were really lovely and attentive. The room is very nice would highly recommend this hotel.

Lucky to have this as a local! The food is fabulous and the staff are always happy and work as fast as they can. Always like the specials board, one of the very few aces I just have to have 3 courses! Love having a walk down with friends or family for food or just a glass of rosè! 🍷

Due to a booking error I found myself in Derby with "No place at the Inn." A quick search on an internet based search engine I was lucky to find The Great Northern. I had been a long day......and was glad when II pulled into their car park. Even happier when welcomed by them....and shown to one of the "Three"... More

I was looking for somewhere for 2 nights while working in nearby Burton and am glad we chose here. The rooms are very well equipped, beautifully decorated and kept while the shower is probably the best that I have ever had in a hotel. The staff were lovely and made my young family feel very welcome and looked after whilst... More

Spent a night at this quaint little B&B which is above a pub. Relatively little noise from its surroundings and the room was quite spacious and modern. The food at the pub was delicious and the full breakfast included was very tasty. All in all this place was perfect for a short stay on our way up north.

First impressions very good, nice sized garden with tables, inside was immaculate with a good layout of tables, and plenty of rooms to choose from. Arrived at 12 noon and the tables were soon snapped up by predominantly eldery customers. Waiting staff very friendly, ordered from their lite bite menu which is where it went downhill. Tiny plate with food... More

Loved our room which was clean and stylish and comfortable. The best thing about this place though was the service in the pub, had a lovely meal on the Saturday night and great breakfast on Sunday morning and the service was excellent - lovely smiley helpful staff - well done!

Loved the look of this pub straight away, so went with some friends for a meal. Have to say my first impression was right. Clean and tidy, with staff that simply can not do enough for you! I had a steak that was reasonably priced and beautifully presented, I was expecting an overdone pub steak and I was pleasantly surprised,... More
