This is a really great little pub.

Was taken over by new landlord amd landlady about 12 months ago, and they have totally transformed the place with great beer, nice hot and cold food and best of all great company.

Its also one of the cheapest pubs i have ever been in. The Old brewery bitter @ £1.80 a pint is just tooooo good to miss.

And in the winter they get a big fire going in the downstairs bar just right to sit by and enjoy a beer.

Brill.

We paid visit on 25th Nov our party all had a different dish we all commented how good they were and will certainly will be back. The staff could not do enough for you ,but it would be nice if people drinking at the bar were asked to move to allow people ordering food and drink and not to hog the total length of it

Took my Family to the abbey Pub for Lunch last week. Been there a few times over the years for a drink, but this was the first time we have eaten there. I have say the Beer has always been good and very well priced. However the food was excellent, around £7.00 a plate, very competitive locally. What stood out the most, was the Host, Lee, could not do enough to make our experience
A memorable one. I travel a lot around the Country and my expectations are fairly high.
The establishment is clean, with friendly locals, the beer is good and the food excellent.
Congratulations to the owners and Staff, we will see you again soon.

Regards. Martin and Family.

this is a lovely historical little pub, it is a great building with lots of ghostly tales. they have a good selection of beers and the alpine lager is amazingly tasty and so cheap. a great place to go day or night, it is lovely in the summer when you can go and sit in the park with a nice cold pint or snuggle up inside in the winter! a great but small pub!

I've lived in Darley Abbey since I was 3 and despite living nearer the Broadway this is DEFINITELY the pub I would call my local. EXCELLENT prices, a lovely building and atmosphere, and if you want, on a nice summer eve, you can wander into the park a little with your drink in a plastic cup - why not! The relatively new owners seem great too. I'm actually going to The Abbey tonight! All time favourite out-of-town gem.

This is a great pub, full of character and in a lovely setting. The drinks are amazingly cheap and dogs are welcome. We had a lovely time there and look forward to revisiting soon.

Isn't about time that smokers were told to take their habit off the premises rather than standing at the entrance (outside) and customers having to go past them to enter the pub, once inside a decent pint is pulled.

This was once a decent historic pub run properly,but has now descended in to being no better than a back street city pub,Called here with my partner on 28/05/218 for a quiet drink there was a group of males and one female playing darts, every other word they spoke was an F word. No attempt was made by the female bar maid to get them to quieten down and moderate their bad language. This was particularly ironic as this pub had declared in the local city newspaper that it would not tolerate bad language.

The manager was sitting outside drinking and only came in to get another drink he was oblivious to what was going on in the bar.

The bar was poorly stocked and staff were miserable and did not know how to serve drinks properly.

The place was full of dogs behaving badly sitting on the seats (that paying customers could have sat on)

This pub has certainly gone to the dogs !!!!!

I will not be going there again until the staff have been replaced good pub gone very BAD !!!!!

The Abbey Pub is in a fantastic location near the River Derwent and is in a really quirky old building with lots of great features and history. The Managers and the staff are all really friendly and offer a warm welcome. The pub is dog friendly and being close to the park you can opt for a plastic glass for your drinks and take them out to the park which is great. On a summers day this is a great place to come and have a picnic/walk the dog/take the kids on the park and have some great tasting, very good value drinks as well. A must go to if you are in the Derby Area!
