Excellent food and service. Beautifully presented food. Make sure you book early I tried for months to get in and well worth the wait. BYO is a bonus.

Firstly let me state that for £10 for 3 courses and a coffee is damn good value, throw in the great food and its... More

We ordered a take-away from this little Bistro and it was excellent. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We ordered it an hour prior to pick-up and every care was taken to ensure that the food was in condition when we ate it. The pork was very good indeed. If you are having a dinner party and do not have... More

We had a lovely meal on Saturday lunchtime and were amazed ti find a 3 course menu on offer at £10 per head. There is a limited but eclectic choice on the lunch menu, and as 2 of us opted for the black pudding/bacon stater and did not want the poached egg it comes with normally, a celeriac mash substitute...

We've been to Barretts several times and have always enjoyed the great food and friendly service. Well worth a visit. Only improvement suggestion would be to serve vegetables as either standard or an optional extra.

Had a lovely family meal out at Barret's. They squeezed us in at fairly late notice to eat at 6 o clock so the dining room was fairly empty for the first hour or so. But James came and introduced himself and spoke to us for a good few minutes when we arrived. It's bring your own bottle which makes... More

Sam thank you for such a positively pleasing review when our diners go to the trouble of spending time writing positive reviews on trip advisor it makes Russell an I very proud of what we do. Fills us with energy, driving us to work even harder to create those magic moments so they return and tell their friends. Thanks again... More

We visited Barretts last night with friends. We have heard so many good reviews so we decided to visit ourselves. The reception was excellent and very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The food is excellent and I cannot recommend the restaurant enough. Both myself and my wife love good quality dining and often find ourselves eating in Derbyshire. No... More

We booked a table having seen the great reviews on here, and weren't disappointed. The service was fantastic, both James and Russell seemed keen to ensure that everything was right and that every customer received the same high level of attention. The food was even better than we had expected, it arrived quickly and both the presentation and the taste... More

A group of friends and I went to this restaurant a few nights ago, some for the first time and some had been before. Most of us had the parsnip soup starter with pancetta and black pudding. For £5.50 it was served luke- warm and a very small portion, I counted four dessert-spoonfuls. No taste of parsnip and thin in... More

Thank you for your review. We take all feedback seriously and constructively and are sorry you were disappointed with your recent visit to our restaurant. And yes you are right, even with a chef down; it does not excuse lukewarm soup. All our dishes are individually prepared to a strict recipe and methodology to ensure consistency so I am particularly... More
