Called in on the spur of moment after they had actually stopped serving breakfast but staff still happy to accommodate us and served up probably the best full English breakfast I have had. Would certainly recommend the breakfast to anyone passing.

We went here last night as my wife took me out for an anniversary meal. We have been here on many occasions over the last couple of years. It has recently been taken over which we didn't know when booking. We went for the Saturday Steak Night. The bistro has been refreshingly redecorated. The owner is nice guy who has... More

I didn't want to upset them as they had just opened again, but then went for lunch - and although the menu wasn't very... More

Oooooooh Beakers, I am such a happy little bird as I type this. The Boy Wonder and I went to Godfreys Cafe and Bistro in Duffield for dinner last night, and had a blooming fantastic time! From the outside it doesn’t look much, although the blue awning is rather cute, but when you step inside it has such a lovely... More

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!
