Had a very good lunch here last week. Really fresh and well cooked and was accompanied with a quality glass of wine. The place was busy and had a nice atmosphere. The owner works hard to accommodate the needs of everyone. Pleasant staff who are always on hand. Water and biscuits available outside for dogs! What's not to like?

First visit since the change of ownership (many months ago), it was very good before but now it is excellent. Complete decor change, for the better I would say, more seating outside, better furnishings inside and lovely colour scheme. Breakfast menu choice is very good with a good choice of hot/cold drinks. Food is cooked, presented very well and is... More

Popped into Godfrey's for a birthday breakfast before travelling to go away for the weekend. Ordered 2 full breakfasts and a smaller one for our daughter. All I can say this is the best full English Breakfast in Derbyshire, it was perfect and reasonably priced :) We have used a more local establishment before where their breakfast is amazing but...

Lovely food, small place to eat so expect a squeezed in seating place! Food can be pricey but milkshakes and lunches are tasty. Will continue to go!

Hi, the review that you have left I don't think its for the Godfreys in Duffield, They have the same name only , they are unrelated and owned by two different people. I'm guessing it's for the Belper Godfreys, as I don't do milk shakes, and I'm not expensive. Regards Chris Winnitt More

A lovely lunch in this friendly café, decorated in lime green with cute green teapots! We tried the veggie chilli and sandwiches. All the food tasted beautifully fresh with quality ingredients and generous portion sizes. Highly recommended.
