We are a family run restaurant, we aim to bring great bistro style food at reasonable prices in a relaxed quirky restaurant. Great for business meetings and romantic meals. Booking is essential. Please note that our 'opening times' listed on here are actually our food service times, we stay open much later in the evening.

Pleasant evening out in Dereby

We booked dinner for 4 and had a lovely table by the window. The menu was quite small but I prefer it this way as it usually means that what they do is good. This proved to be the case. There were 2 vegetarian options available which suited my husband and I and both were very good. The meat... read more

Everything just right for us. Service & food second to none. Great atmosphere, whats not to like. Our Waitress was very attentive & helpful in explaining the different food on offer. I went for the Beef. Which was cooked to perfection.

This is a great place to eat I you are looking for something during your lunch. It's different compared to your conventional shops and that adds to how good the place is. The venue is great, close to shops and food is nice too

Saturday evening booking, parking at Bold Lane easy walk across the road to a warm and friendly welcome, atmosphere very bistro and lovely and relaxed. Shown quickly to our table and presented with the wine list and menu. Although we were seated upstairs witha group who weren't quiet, it really was lovely. The staff know what they are doing and...

7 adults and 3 children visited for my sister's birthday lunch. I used to love this place but it was an absolutely dreadful choice. Service was incredibly slow - took over an hour from ordering to get our mains (about an hour and a quarter) but it was ok, we had a few lukewarm mushrooms to keep us going! They... More

Five of us had a really lovely meal at this little gem of a place.exellent food and lovely staff. We would have preferred to have sat downstairs where it was a little quieter (an observation, not a complaint.)

my dear friend gave us a gift voucher to visit this little gem, situated very near to parking and the Sadler gate shops. We were delayed arriving for our lunchtime booking but the accomodating staff made us very welcome. A delightful treat for lunch but I would imagine could be an even more special candle light dinner venue! Many thanks... More
