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

Welcoming service , plenty of staff to take orders. We managed to get a table for food (most had been reserved) . Menu with all the usual suspects and a few more adventurous specials. A few vegetarian options as well. Food arrived in good time, and was tasty. Would recommend for good pub grub.

We have eaten at The Great Northern many times now, sometimes in the bar area and sometimes in the restaurant. The food is always excellent, the staff very friendly and service prompt. The hand cut chips are the best we have tasted. We would highly recommend The Great Northern. It has turned into our local as we also call in... More

Came here on a Friday night with my other half for a date night. We didn't book so had to eat outside but that was our own faults, luckily it was warm weather. We ordered our food which came out in a reasonable time. I ordered a salmon dish which had paprika all over it which it never stated and... More

We stayed over the New Year period from 28th December 2013 to 8th January 2014 during our first trip back to the UK since our move to Oz. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. From arrival to departure they were friendly and accommodating, and even before we arrived as we made arrangements whilst still in Australia. They had breakfast... More

The staff at the Great Northern came to our rescue when another pub in Mickleover let us down at last minute for hosting a family get together. They were so accommodating and helpful in every possible way I can not recommend them enough!! A huge thank you for everyone involved you really stepped up to the mark and helped make... More
