Nice atmosphere and decor. Dislike the bar area as the seats are uncomfortable - I dislike large leather sofas. Last time I went the food was bad. We got a refund for some of it.

Wonderful little pub. Rather expensive but great nevertheless. Modern furnishings and charming fireplaces. On a little elevation so great views. The food is great. Worth the visit and dogs are allowed.

Great food, decent sized portions however service was slow. For th eprice would expect a lot better. Dissapointing however if opportunity arises I would go again to give the place a second chance.

We visited The Derby Arms by chance. It is a busy pub at weekends and there isn't much room but saying that the layout is such that you never feel hemmed in. The food is good gastro pub style British fare and excellently presented. Waiting staff are as attentive as need be but not overly so. I enjoyed this meal... More

We have never had such a bad experience with a Sunday roast. Who puts massive potatoes which weren't roasted, a whole parsnip and onions as a roast dinner and charges £13-£14 terrible. The staff were lovely and polite shame about the awful food.

I have dined many times at the Derby Arms as live very close to it but no more, our last visits was awful. The restaurant manager asked us to wait at the bar whilst a table was prepared, which we did for maybe 10 minutes, the barman was preparing coffee for a customer but did not even acknowledge our presence....

I feel like I am doing a disservice to The Derby Arms by describing what it sells as "pub food". But it's a pub that sells food so I guess that's as good a description as any. The pub has just introduced a new menu with the whole roast chicken to share - a family favourite - replaced by a... More

I booked a table for seven of us some weeks ago for a family meal last Sunday. The lady who took the booking suggested an alcove table as it was out of the way and it would be convenient for my daughter in law as she is on crutches. I was also asked if it was a special occasion and... More
