Lovely food and good waiting staff. Clean and homely facilities. Very hot but in fairness the place was packed! Plan to return for lunch one day.

Not a bad early supper at The Derby Arms. Waitress efficient and attentive, orders all no fuss with lots of help for kids. Food was nice, well prepared and cooked, just did not quite have the wow factor. Portion size was just a little small and gave a slightly stingy feel. Place was not that busy and food was prompt....

Where to begin? Bad service start to finish. Staff either aren't properly trained or don't care. No management intervention at any stage throughout a farcical evening. We were a party of eight with a booking celebrating a family occasion. The waiter was a nice enough guy, but it seemed as though he had never waited in a table before. Clumsy... More

Had lunch in the garden, great setting. We had the pizza and posh ham and cheese sandwich. Food was ok but was a little expensive for what you get, medium wine and coke came to £30.

Visited on the 12th May as part of a large business group. Nothing wrong with the atmosphere/ambience but have to say that the food was ordinary and expensive and overpriced. My starter of chicken parfait was not particularly inspiring and the bread was sweet and as with many establishments mean in its portion size. The main course of venison was... More

Just had lunch with my mum and toddler . Waited 30 mins for a burger and chicken salad. Nearly laughed out loud when the salad arrived . Chicken as dry as a bone and the salad about the size of my toddlers palm. Burger not great . Salad £10.99 Won't be returning . Filthy walls , floors curtains . Baby... More
