I have known this little village café and restaurant for years - the name stays the same but the owner chef has changed many times. Prior to the new owner taking over about 6 months ago Godfreys had definitely seen better days. I actually stopped going. But great news 6 months ago a new owner, completely spruced up restaurant and... More

Was in Duffield for an early appointment and found this little cracker! What an amazing breakfast, freshly prepared and very tasty, set me up for the day.

Tastefully decorated village bistro. Very relaxed atmosphere and a warm welcome from the owner and chef Chris. The food is extremely well priced and portions are not for the feint hearted. Well worth a visit, the breakfast was fantastic. Going to try the evening menu too soon.

Quick(ish) lunch - steak baguette and hot salmon brochettes (kebab) with roasted vegetables. Good selection of bottled beers and lagers - food fantastic; team friendly, quick and professional. All-in-all a real treat - will be back soon 😏

Checked on trip advisor for local cafés and found this one. Mobilised the family for afternoon brunch to find a note in the window saying closed early. Poor form. Would appreciate future advertisements of opening hours to be correct to save wasting your customers time.

Having tried many times to change the opening hours on trip adviser, I finally gave up! I have owned the business since oct last year my hours haven't changed, although I will be doing what I would call seasonally adjusted hours. My hours on the said day are as the notice in the window states, 9 - 1 breakfasts and... More

Had a quick bite here on the way to Derby from Milford. Couple of baguettes! Food was lovely and the service was good. The price was pretty reasonable as well. Felt cramp inside but like why they have done with the place

We had a lovely meal at this bistro. As there were a large family group following a funeral Chris closed the restaurant and we had the place to ourselves which was a very kind thought. Th staff were helpful and friendly. The food was delicious and plentiful. Would go again
