After having to wait for our pre-booked table for 10 minutes, the service proved to be good. All the waiters were pleasant and fairly attentive. Overall a lovely experience

This is without doubt the place to go in this part of Derbyshire if you want a special occasion meal. We have celebrated a few big birthdays here as a family and we are always really happy. The food and service are always excellent.

The service is always seamless yet personal, with great attention to detail. The food is always interesting and everything... More
