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.

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

Visited mansion for a lunch date, ate from the set price menu that was excellent value. Had the salmon tartar and sirloin steak. Both dishes were presented beautifully and the quality of ingredients were reflected by the freshness in flavour. The service was faultless.

Nice place to go for good meal and if you go Thursday Friday or Saturday night entertainer present too. Sunday dinners are lush and magician is regularly there too. Just popping in for a coffee is a treat. Nice place to have a drink and chat. Great wines spirits and beers sold there.
