“Different!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Great hosts and superbs sides - including home made chips - which you don't get at many places. This place serves kangaroo. steaks, ribs and other Aussie plates - nice for somewhere different and very reasonably priced

“Exotic food in a lovely setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

If you love an adventure - food wise - then Blueys is a must. We had crocodile, kangaroo and camel steaks which were delicious. The owners were friendly, helpful and very accomodating. The sides, starters and puds were lovely and the range of drinkls excellent. Give the place a go - you won't be disapponted! www.blueys.org.uk

“Not my thing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Strange layout and doesn't have atmosphere of either pub or bistro/restaurant. Nice enough owners and staff and does serve real ale from the local Ashover brewery which is mostly OK.

Not my kind of place but nothing much wrong with it.

“Kangaroo, Camel, Crocodile, Beef - what sort of steak would you like?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I was in Alfreton with some customers going out for a end of year dinner in appreciation of a year’s good business together. They suggested Blueys. I’m glad they did!

Set on a busy road through Alfreton parking could be an issue, but we parked over the road in Lidl’s car park - I hope no-one minded.

Walking across the road we entered Blueys to find a long well stocked bar leading to a simple dining area beside it. Blue’s wife greeted us and introduced the drinks to us allowing a small sample of unusual ones first. Then we sat and looked at the menus which ranges from burgers to steaks to mixed grills. I opted for the Kangaroo steak which tasted great. It could have come with a sauce, but for my first time eating ‘roo I wanted to savour the flavour. Apart from tasting like beef (!) it was very tender and beautifully cooked. The steaks came with home-made chips, a big mushroom, onion rings and a cherry tomato - all for about £14 each (before the 20% lunchtime discount)

We decided to go for deserts too - home made and served in generous tasty portions.

On the way out we chatted with Blue - a Pom and the chef who told us he’d moved back to the UK with his Aussie wife and recently set this place up. I wish them well!
