Excellent bar stroke restaurant in the heart of the village. No particular highs or lows other than to say that the food is consistently very good unlike other local establishments. It does what it does extremely well and has a good mix of local regulars and out of town visitors. Have just had a Sunday lunch with a group of... More

Decided to take my husband for a champagne breakfast to celebrate his birthday. Have been to various restaurants in Derby in the past for champagne breakfasts and Harpurs is, without doubt, the best. From the imaginative and creative fruit starter to the locally sourced ingredients for the English breakfast this four course breakfast with champagne is exceptional. Thank you.

This review is a little late! I came with my family for Sunday lunch, 27th October (see what I mean) and we had a fantastic meal, couldn't fault it, we do come in regularly to eat and drink as live locally and love the place. The only thing I would say is, we were sat downstairs and our table was... More

We ate at Harpurs as part of a large family meal which took up three big tables. Due to numbers we had ordered meals in advance and the choices were fairly limited as could be expected but plenty of variation offered to cover all requirements. The starters were fairly small in quantity but the sauce on my mushroom was very... More

We had heard very good reviews from close friends about Harpurs regarding the quality of the food and the accommodation, I believe there is also live music most weekends. The rooms were very clean and modern and the food was excellent. We combined the break with a 5 mile walk picking up coffee shops and public houses on route whilst... More

I have eaten a few times and have always been really impressed. The food and service both great, along with the décor and atmosphere. I saw an advertisement for a Gourmet evening so I decided to go with my family and introduce them to this fantastic establishment. Well…. Where to start. The food was amazing and so much thought had... More

We had friends come up to stay over on their way to Alton Towers, so we decided to get them a room at Harpur's, right in the centre of Melbourne and ideal for people coming up the M1. It is a very nice pub, serving great food with a few clean and very comfortable rooms so we knew our friends... More

I took my partner here for what I hoped would be a nice relaxing quiet evening and overnight stay. Bit of a mistake... Choose your night very carefully. We went on a Saturday. Harpur's is a very busy (and pretty loud) local bar. On arriving, the staff were too busy with a christening party to give us a proper welcome... More

Strange that this is your only ever review????? I do apologise if we are a popular pub restaurant that has lots of people in, this is the first complaint of noise I have had so difficult to comprehend. If you would like a quiet place with no atmosphere and have the place to yourself I can recommend several locally. Thank... More
