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

Stayed here on a Saturday night in April 2014 in the ground floor room - couple with a 4 year old child. Room was spotless and tastefully decorated - there was a separate section the other side of the bathroom with a double sofa bed which my son slept in. Room was clean and modern and had all the amenities... More

Four of us stayed here on a Saturday night. The pub was very busy when we arrived just after 6pm but the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were going to be comfortable in our rooms. Although all the tables in the restaurant were full or reserved and we hadn't pre-booked a... More

This place was a lucky find on the internet at short notice! Really excellent room with a freestanding bath in the very large bedroom and a nice fresh decor and spotless bathroom. The food in the attached bar/restaurant is very good value for money. Nothing to fault this place on!

We went for Sunday lunch, a party of 11. The food was very good, the service was diabolical. One hour and ten minutes wait for main course, then we had to go and ask for a sweet order to be taken. Hopefully if we go again the service will be better, perhaps more staff would help.
