A group of us (18) enjoyed our meals here in May. We have visited before as a large party and always pre-booked and pre-ordered. As usual the service, food and ambiance was excellent. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered, some had starters, some just mains, but none could be faulted whatsoever. The staff are very polite, courteous and helpful. The venue... More

Me and my partner and his family decided to head to the great northern... It's one of their kind of regulars and they enjoy the food every time. Which is a plus. We went the week after mothers day due to thinking it would be less busy... As mothers day is always so rammed... And we were right and it... More

We visited for a late afternoon treat, opting away from the typical pub grub brands!!! We were greeted by a friendly member of the waiting staff. We chose from a well formed menu, with a fab choice of vegi options and a great specials boards. After making our order. The drinks were brought over quickly along with cutlery. The waiting... More

There's a real warmth about this place, staff, food and surrondings are all pleasing and well done. The menu is pretty standard but the food is tasty, served well and portions are just right. If there is anything you want changing the staff try their best to accommodate you, a rarity in most restaurants.

Came here for lunch, were told to pick a table so we did. It was quite busy but looking around most people were finished. Sat for 15 mins and were ignored by 3 members of staff. Got up and left. Rubbish 'service'. Will not return.

What a great find!! I had arranged a surprise weekend away for my partners 30th nearby. After a bit of google research this hidden treasure appeared. What a delight!! 24 of us pre-ordered our food for the Friday night and another 6 joined us whilst we were there. Nothing was too much for the staff here. All meals were served... More

We went here on a recommendation and we really enjoyed the food, the service and it had a really nice feel about it, you felt really comfortable. My wife had the crab linguine and I had the seabass with prawns, the fish and the prawns were cooked to perfection, served with new potatoes and green beans with a caper sauce... More

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
