Had lunch with my sister and niece and we had a lovely lunch. Service was very good and the food was excellent. 2/3 were vegetarians and there was a lack of vegetarian dishes to choose from. That which we had was very good. I can highly recommend The Harpur's.

After visiting the lovely village we had a great lunch. We started with baked Camembert then onto mains. The food was very well presented and service excellent. My (adult) daughter and sister are both vegetarians and we think the main courses needs variety here, there wasn't a lot to choose from. I had pie which was lovely. We would definitely... More

Melbourne is a pretty little market town very conveniently situated only a few minutes drive from East Midlands Airport. Harpur's is in the centre of the town and has free parking which is handy. It is a pub with accommodation overhead. Everything was clean and comfortable, a very comfy bed and lovely fresh bed linen. The staff were friendly and... More

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
