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.

The food was lovely and nicely presented, there was lots of choice on the menu. The place was very quiet with not many diners, with an offer on I would have expected it busier, it's a shame because it is definitely worth a visit.

I’ve been many times before and always had a good time but never for Sunday lunch so I was looking forward to it. We didn’t have a voucher (mansion-deals.com) so we had the full run of the menu but as it was only £16 for two courses, it wasn’t even that pricey. The waiting staff were all smart and polite...

I had initial doubts on seeing the menu ...but WOW! The food was incredible and worth every penny and beautifully presented. I had fish and chips which sounds plain but was the best I'd ever had and s huge portion. Sarah had surf and turf - expensive but the best fillet steak she had tasted. Well worth it and highly...

It's great that you enjoyed your meal at Mansion. There's many a 'chippy' that boldly claim to serve 'the best fish and chips ever', so it's always great to earn that acclaim from a customer. The steak is the best locally sourced 28-day aged beef we can lay our hands on, so once again, we're delighted to hear that it's... More

lively place, small (ish) dining area, in a wine bar type place. Decent service, friendly. Food not cheap but excellent quality and good sized portions. Belly Pork starter was to die for. Good steak and good fish also been eaten here. Reasonable selection of draught beers, and locally produced ales in bottles. Certainly a better place than you would expect... More

Visit here at least once a month as pop in after work has handy walk from the train station. Staff always friendly and know what I like to drink. Love the booths and prefer to eat at them then the formal tables at the front. Had gorgeous steak and chips. Highly recommended.
