I should have taken it as a sign to avoid this cafe after I was rudely asked to move to another table because I was only meeting one person (only two people sat at this table eventually anyway and they were not asked to move). I have to say I've been to a lot of cafes with only one other... More

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your visit to Fresh Ground. There are a few points that you raised that I would like to clarify. When we are busy we try to manage our tables so that we don’t have to turn customers away. If we have a table for two and four available, and two customers arrive... More

We visited for lunch and although it was very busy there was a table at the back of the cafe where we were able to sit. There was a chalkboard with a good selection of gluten free options, in addition to another general menu. The staff were very friendly and clearly understood the requirements of a Coeliac. The service was... More

We went to the Fresh Ground for lunch recently, and enjoyed a lovely meal there. What stood out though was the staff - very friendly and helpful. Would gladly go again.

Visited here prior to watching a film at the Ritz. Most of the tables were busy when we arrived. Service was fair, four staff behind the counter looked bored, it was 4.30 ish perhaps been a long day. The drinks were served quickly, unfortunately the food could have been better. We had burgers with ciabatta roll, the roll turned out... More

I enjoyed a veggie quiche plus salad, with nice crisps, and my partner had soup. He had filter coffee and a rather large flapjack or brownie, I had the carrot cake and a skinny cappacino. Took a cheese scone back home. We both enjoyed our food and coffee. Service was good, no criticism other than it felt a little cold... More

The food is well cooked but plain, bland and the menu is not varied enough. The only nice thing used to be their chocolate Torte but that's no longer available. Paid parking in Green Lane is closest. The sofa seating area is lovely but mostly occupied. Perhaps more sofa seating areas ought to replace the tables?

We enjoyed a mid-morning cup of coffee at "Fresh Ground" as we spent a couple of hours in Belper. Helpful and friendly staff and free wifi for customers make this a good place to take coffee.

A great place to sit and unwind either inside or in their lovely hidden garden. Food always good and not overpriced. Staff always helpful. Handy for a quick drink before the cinema. Keep up the good work.
