A bad lunch. Food poor. Menu unattractive.. The only good thing was the waiter who was very attentive.

We had a nice lunch. The food was good and reasonably priced. The service was friendly and well paced. The decor was very pleasant - all adding up to a tasty and well priced lunch. We would certainly go back again.

Recently moved to the area and went here on Friday, location was good, food & atmosphere was good and our waitress Caroline was very attentive even though she was rushed off her feet. Will definitely go back with friends and family whether for lunch or dinner.

whenever we are in epsom we eat at the derby arms. we booked a table over the august bank holiday weekend, and despite being busy and bustling, the service was excellent and the food delicious. The staff spent time describing the dishes, and they were spot on with their explanations. we love the relaxed atmosphere and spacious tables.

Went to the Derby Arms last Sunday. Despite the torrential rain that lasted the whole day, we had a fantastic time complimented by the tasty food, especially the Sunday roast which tasted great even though it was late evening. Thank you guys!

Waited ages for our main course, offered a desert each for unacceptable waiting time, then waited ages for desert! We decided we couldn't wait any longer for the offered desert and requested money off the bill which was refused as the Manager had gone home and no one else could make that decision. Not sure if the Manager was the... More

I came here for lunch last week as the weather was nice, I thought I would treat myself to come to this place. I ordered a salt beef sandwich but a roast beef sandwich came instead ... nevermind ... I can see how that can get mixed up, "salt" beef and "roast" beef; I don't mind roast beef anyway and... More
