This place is nice and relaxed and you can always rely on a decent meal being served. For what they offer I think its a little overpriced but whats served is always good. Don't expect anything too fancy here and you won't be disappointed.

Went with friends, lovely atmosphere and we enjoyed the selection of foods on offer. Each of our meals were thoroughly enjoyable and I especially would definitely order the halloumi dish again. Very small complaint was that I had to ask twice to get some mayo, which the waitress was very apologetic for, my friend's meal also came missing the crackling,... More

Came here for dinner last Friday night with 2 other girl friends. We had a minor hiccup with one of the starter which was resolved very quickly by a fantastic manager. The food is good here and generally has been as I come here regularly, and like before though not very often, when there have been the odd issue they... More

I have visited this restaurant a few times and have always had a good meal. Its usually very busy especially in the summer as it is opposite Epsom race course. The food is good and the staff are really friendly and will always have a chat. The cocktails are also really good, the relaxed ambience and comfy decor makes this... More

We met here for a family Sunday Lunch. My stepson's friend had recommended it and I can only think he was there for the drink, rather than the food! While we waited we had "artisan bread" with oil and balsamic vinegar. When did sliced burnt toasted baquette qualify as 'Artisan'? We all had various roasts as my first choice of... More

I used to eat here a lot but never reviewed. It's a very popular eatery and sometimes depending on day best to book. It always amazes me that restaurants around Epsom seem busy every night and not just later in the week. The atmosphere is good and the food is pretty good. It's part of a chain so the menu... More

Occasional visitors as it is about a 40 mins drive away, last week four of called in for lunch, all the different starter were good as were three of the main courses but the top-crust pastry on the pie was uncooked (the main body of pastry was fine so not sure what had happened unless it had had a foil...

I hadn't visited the Derby Arms for a number of years and was pleased to find that it had been modernised and extended. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff very helpful (particularly as we had 11-month old twins in our party). The menu was extensive with perhaps a tendency towards the high calorie/high carb burger and fried chicken choices.... More

Visit here quite regularly over the years and decided to have an early Sat eve meal pre-Fathers Day. We were a party of 6 and from the get-go, when we were told two beers we ordered were not available, felt the evening didn't start well. We ordered pizza but were told they had run out of mozzarella! but offered cheddar... More
