Great atmosphere, tasty food

We had heard lots of good things about this restaurant from friends, and it did not disappoint! Its cosy, with a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Food was very good, and the service was spot on - very friendly and responsive. Definitely one to try when in Derby.

Whilst on a course with work I was looking for a place to dine alone. I'm glad I visited this spot! The meal was superb and the service both fantastic and friendly. Being a Monday night, it was quiet but there was no less attention to detail because of it. Not overly expensive for the service and the quality of... More

My husband treated me to a meal here and the food was beautiful, I also adored the decor in their; very quirky. Prices were reasonable and service was great. We rather ironically had a wonky table which was annoying but we kept our mouths shut in fear of looking like idiots.

Wandering around in Derby midweek looking for somewhere for a bite we came across this little gem, it was packed and deservedly so, the place and the menu were quirky but in a very good way, interesting food combinations that work, all in all a great experience and one I intend to repeat soon, many thanks

Ate on a Monday night with family and friend. Very nice menu with plenty of choice. Food well cooked and staff very attentive and friendly. Try it out if you are able to get a table as very busy.

I had never heard of The Wonky Table before ( that's me living in Derby all my life .... must get out more ). We were a party of 5 girls attending our yearly Christmas get together and we decided that the menu appealed to all of us. The Wonky Table is very small and the night we attended people... More

Judging by other reviews we may have visited on an un-typical night when the kitchen had a bit of a wobble. But we can only comment on our personal experience. We both ordered the venison dish. My meat was very tough to the extent that I couldn't get the knife through it. The accompanying Dauphinoise potatoes were not cooked below... More

During a business travel in Derby, I was invited at the Wonky Table. The restaurant is a nice place in downtown. The place is very pleasant. The food is excellent and the waiters are nice. All dishes were very tasty.

I along with my husband and two friends had lunch at the Wonky Table and we were all very impressed. The food was very good along with the service and friendly staff. The food is all locally sourced - well cooked and well presented. We will certainly be back
