Gorgeous decor (I am a big fan of Orla Keiley), lovely staff and the meal was perfect. I don't know what else to put it was one of the best meals I have had for a while and at a very descent price

Adding to the chorus of approval for this place. It is just a pub (albeit think it does have some rooms) and has no pretensions, situated round the corner from the delightful Ritz cinema not far from the pedestrian area of Belper. The choice of menu on offer was amazing, what we had was clearly home made with wonderful individual... More

Been here lots of times. Prefer eating upstairs - the tapas menu in the bar. The food is good modern style, and excellent value. And they have good ales. Landlords very friendly.

Spoke to girl about standard of food, was offered another but all dishes looked the same. No refund offered, we won't be... More

Went here as a medium sized party for a birthday meal. It was lovely! You could tell the food was cooked properly as there was a natural 45 minute wait for my Spaghetti and Wild Boar Meetballs. It was very tasty! To be honest, I didn't think £17 each for two courses and two drinks is badly priced for fresh... More
