Have eaten at Godfrey's on eight occasions previously and I am aware that it can be a bit of a squeeze, and don't mind, so for Fathers Day decided to try lunch and pre-booked. On arrival Clare the waitress was busy and walked past our party three times and made no acknowledgment whatsoever. Feeling a bit like a spare part... More

Great food on a lovely menu, sometimes the menu doesn't cater for all but generally very good. We have known Godfrey to double book in occasions where there are large groups which you are stranded then. Would recommend!

We had been thinking of visiting this place for a few years but never got round to it, however decided to go to celebrate a birthday. Very impressed. Menu was more than adequate with various choices. Food was of a bistro style and cooked perfectly. There was a choice of continental beer, real ale and a small wine list, which... More

I had a sausage and egg sandwich and my friend had a sausage and bacon sandwich. Small place so can imagine during peak times getting a table might be tricky. Nice that they've got a few tables to sit outside. Efficient service and very tasty food! Would love to try other things on their menu.

A lovely place, Sunday lunch was obtained quite quickly, very tasty although the components of the plate were clearly reheated the food was enjoyable the premises have a pleasant ambience and the staff polite. This is our second visit and we will return. I have paid much more for less enjoyable lunches elsewhere than you will here.

Confidently booked Saturday lunch for us and another couple. Have eaten here before in the evening on a few occasions,my husband has had many breakfasts here too and we have not been disappointed. However, this was very different. At 12.30 when we arrived the table needed a good clean and there was insufficient cutlery for the 4 of us. We... More

Don't let my title mislead you, Godfrey's is a very good restaurant when Godfrey (the owner) is cooking, he is clearly a very good cook and clearly has skill and imagination. However there is another cook that occasionally works and he has still has some way to go before being good at his art. On our most recent visit, the... More

Visited Godfrey's for breakfast and what a nice place to eat and read the papers. Opted for the big breakfast which was very good also liked the little touch that you get jam and toast with it. A very clean and bright cafe, staff are efficient and friendly. Only downside is the lack of parking in Duffield, suggest you park... More
