We ate upstairs on a busy Saturday night, this proved to be interesting when trying to get down a steep flight of stairs in high heels when you need to go to the toilet! Our trio tried a range of starters, all deemed 'ok' nothing special. Two of us had hake in mussel sauce which was rather yummy, however my... More

Dear Openmindedderby, Thank you for taking the time to review us, we are very sorry that things were not up to scratch. We have had a problem with the windows not closing since getting our frontage painted but rest assured we are on the decorators case in getting it fixed. With regards to the food not being up to our... More

We came here in January and had a lovely experience, so much so that we'd been really looking forward to our evening here. On this occasion the food was lovely, as it had been before. We had the venison and steak cooked perfectly. If we were to base it just on the food we would definitely be back, but we... More

Dear tanya1534, We are very sorry about your experience, the kitchen were informed of the mistakes made that night as were the front of house for not relying the relevant information to you. The cheesecake has been made with gluten free oats and biscuits to cater for coeliacs, which may explain why it was a little different in texture but... More

I booked this for a visit of two French colleagues, two directors and myself. I'm delighted to say the restaurant delivered and helped me show that we can cook good, fresh food in this country! Unusually for Derby there were a few really interesting vegetarian/possibly vegan options on the menu (so they have secured a repeat visit from me!) and... More

Went with a few colleagues while in Derby on business & we arrived quite late on 20:30 or so and they staff were friendly and welcomed us all in. The menu is limited in selection and premium in price. The fish of the day was c£16 & a steak c£24. The food however was very good, although my hake was... More

A couple of years since we've been, you need to book early as it isn't that big. We had a bottle of wine and straight into the main course, we both had venison which was cooked beautifully, the had the cheeseboard between us, it was massive, Big chunks of Stilton, Brie and a smoked cheese and home made biscuits. Now... More

We are a family run restaurant, we aim to bring great bistro style food at reasonable prices in a relaxed quirky restaurant. Great for business meetings and romantic meals. Booking is essential. Please note that our 'opening times' listed on here are actually our food service times, we stay open much later in the evening for freshly made cocktails.
