We have not visited Derby for a while & decided to pop into Bennetts to check out the Brasserie for a spot of lunch. It was the main lunch time on a Saturday & we were a little surprised how quiet it was. With so few people eating it did lack any atmosphere, that said the food was served very... More

Arrived at 1300 having read rave reviews. I have to say, we were not disappointed. We were greeted by a very professional, attentive and socially skilled waiter who remained alert but not intrusive throughout the lunch. The food, ambiance and attention to detail was exemplary whilst the bill was most reasonable. Would highly recommend.

Just enjoyed very good champagne "brunch" at Michael Frith at Bennetts Brasserie. Really nice food but we were only given one glass of champagne each, as the promised second glass didn't materialise. We were prepared to forgive this omission, however when we asked for a top-up of black coffee (small cups!) we were very disappointed to find we had been... More

I have just been treated to a champagne breakfast at Michael Frith at Bennetts Brasserie and I can't praise the place highly enough. We were seated on the lovely balcony (plenty of room between tables), the staff were excellent - nothing was too much trouble, and the service was just right - relaxed but not slow. There is a lovely... More

My husband and I like to go out together for brunch regularly and chose the restaurant based on the great reviews, we weren't disappointed. The juice is freshly squeezed and the coffee really good. Eggs benedict is my husbands favourite and he's had it in many places and assured me that this was the best he's tasted! My omelette was... More

Absolutely fantastic. I have sampled many breakfasts in some very exclusive hotels and restaurants previously. This was by far the best. The quality of the food was absolutely amazing and could not be faulted in anyway. This was for my girlfriends birthday and I wanted something special. It certainly was. Very highly recommend.

All I can say is absolutely outstanding! After living in Dubai for a while and being lucky enough to visit amazing restaurants and hotels I was hit with the dilema of where to take my other half for a celebratory birthday meal! So I decided to go for a champagne breakfast and found Michael Frith on TripAdvisor. . What a... More

Having avoided the café in Bennetts Store for some time, we heard good things about a revamp + change of owner. During the 1/2-year so far, we have eaten in this new restaurant 6-7 times. Service is very attentive and staffs' conversation individualised, which is welcome in this day n age. My wife's sister has been with us on a... More
