Description: Located in the centre of the vibrant city of Derby, Mansion Restaurant and Wine Bar caters to the increasingly selective local clientele, providing fabulous food and wine in a relaxed, stylish setting. Large and spacious, the airy bar-dining room is the perfect all day pick for chilled out lunches, romantic dinners or drinks with friends, food is served from 11am ���til late, with a 1am license meaning that your evening needn���t end abruptly before you���re ready. The brasserie menu here at Mansion offers a wide array of unpretentious dishes, ranging from the simplest of snacks to hearty all day breakfasts, picking platters and quick and easy sandwiches and jackets for speedy weekday lunches. However the more refined a la carte menu, overseen by talented chef Lisa Thorley, who trained in Buxton but learnt her trade in top London restaurants, is a focused selection of rich European modern classics made using seasonal and local ingredients wherever possible. Special events include ladies nights, themed music evenings and dances and Saturdays bring with them a decadent champagne breakfast.

A few weeks ago I wrote a fantastic review for this place but our second visit here was awful. You could cut the atmosphere with a knife! The atmosphere felt very uncomfortable and whilst the (what I assume to be) assistant manager was polite to us we did here her arguing with a staff member in the bar area. The... More

Sunday night once per month the Mansion Bar hold a salsa dance night with great music and free buffet around 10pm ish. Trevor and Val organise the salsa music and they are the most welcoming people you will ever meet. There is no entry fee and no charge for the buffet, you only pay for your drinks. There is a...

We have eaten here before and having had a wonderful experience we were really looking were looking forward to it. However, we were really disappointed. The staff were more interested in talking to each other, arguing and one waitress got ready in the Bar area whilst discusing a colleagues rabbit that was going for the snip!!!! Not something you want... More

Visited for a champagne breakfast as a group of four. The restaurant was extremely busy at full capacity. Champagne and starters bought promptly but then an extremely long wait for our main- probably around 40 minutes. I was so disappointed when it came and I'd ordered eggs Benedict and the yolks weren't runny at all- they were very hard. My... More

I'd just like to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our Mothers Day experience at the Mansion, Restaurant & Wine Bar. The service was exceptional. The ambience and the food quality was very good and we really enjoyed the Magician, who was very entertaining... Nice touch. We will be back.

Decided to treat my mum to an early Mother's Day treat, so I took her to Mansion to try out the Champagne Breakfast. It was brilliant! Champagne on arrival and a jug of fresh orange juice and water at the table. I had the Greek yoghurt to start, followed by Eggs Benedict and ended with the fruit salad. Couldn't fault... More

Hadn't been here for a while for food - had a few nights just for drinks. Saw a Groupon offer and decided to give it a go. We were not disappointed in any way - nice welcome and choice of tables. Drinks served quickly and enough time to choose from the menu - the deal was a starter and main... More

Came with my daughter for Sunday lunch on a Groupon Deal. The service was good and the food was excellent. There is now a much improved starter platter. Now it has fresh carrots and celery with a slightly spicey dip. Plus a large portion of olives sunblush tomatoes and feta cheese, Much better than the prevvious pretzels etc. We both... More

We were very much looking forward to our meal here having heard good things. It's a nice place, well laid out and with a welcoming atmosphere. The food was tasty, although it could have been hotter and the portion sizes were very average. However, the service was poor and the attitude of both managers was just too arrogant. Having waited...
