Having been to this restaurant several times in the past and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, I booked a table for myself and a lady friend on a Friday evening at the only slot available My companion has a couple of food related issues, she is...gluten sensitive, something which is seldom a problem in 2021, unfortunately she is also very allergic to garlic. Before I booked I checked the menu online and indeed no mention of garlic on anything that I thought we may enjoy eating, in fact you struggle to find any mention of garlic anywhere on the menu. As always with this restaurant the service was exemplary, We were shown quickly and efficiently to our table and seated, the restaurant was very busy and there appeared to be very little regard for social distancing, however we were on the table for two in the centre of the room As we ordered we enquired about the garlic content of any of the dishes that we may have wanted and the waitress dutifully approach the kitchen to check on everything that we said we might like. Eventually after several attempts at finding something we could eat the waitress took the entire menu to the kitchen and ask the chef to identify anything that would be guaranteed to have a garlic in it When the waitress returned it appeared that the only thing on the menu that we could potentially have to eat was the starter which could be made up into a main course, it transpires that the problem is there is always a chance of garlic will transfer as the same fryer is used for all the dishes. All credit due to the restaurant for their honestyAnd indeed the server for her patience and understanding but a somewhat annoyed and very embarrassed myself of my companion left the restaurant. As much as I have enjoyed the restaurant in the past, it has become quite clear that this is essentially A quite expensive fast food restaurant where everything seemingly ends up in the chip pan, not only that, but it all ends up in the same chip pan and given that there are vegan options on the menu I question how this can be. Surely a vegan dish deep-fried in the same fat as a chicken or fish dish is no longer vegan I really want to be clear that the ambience in this restaurant is excellent, and the staff have always been good even on this occasion but clearly I am unable to visit with my companion if we can’t guarantee that food allergies will not be triggered Whilst eating something as simple as a fish and chips, or a club sandwich I accept that this was a busy period and I also accept that on quieter periods they may have extra measures in place to separate different dishes in the kitchen, but this really is not good enough.More

I’ve lived in Derby for many years and have never come across Seven until today. What a lovely place! Great food and friendly service. Really lovely, fresh decor and great menu choice. Will definitely be returning!

So glad to be back in a buzzing restaurant with a great atmosphere. Good food from the starters to the desserts (we're full, we shouldn't but......). My steak was perfectly cooked, juicy, tender and full of flavour. Good wine. Excellent service (as always). Can't wait...for our next visit.More

Went for lunch with a friend: our first post Covid outing. Everything was spot on. We were welcomed promptly. The service was quick and efficient but we never felt rushed. The food was lovely.

Visited on 1st evening after covid restrictions were eased and, although the restaurant was busy we felt quite comfortable with the safety aspect of masks, distancing and sanitising being adhered to. We dined together with daughter and husband as we were all celebrating wedding anniversaries....The meal was excellent and the menu choice was quite wide. Staff were very efficient and attentive but not overly so. Can definitely recommend this restaurant and hope to revisit soon.More

We needed an outside venue for a wake, which was really difficult to find in light of COVID restrictions, however this venue was amazing. The staff couldn’t do enough for us, the service was prompt and I recommend the fish finger sandwiches! Yes it rained...and hailed but the seats were dried for us, and blankets were handed out, and heaters went on. Honestly guys, you made a stressful day a lot easier, so thank you all, and we will we backMore

Seven was the first place we wanted to visit after the restrictions lifted and it was certainly worth the wait. Checking in was easy and we were soon seated at a lovely table with heaters and blankets. Front of house staff were warm and friendly...as always and couldn’t have done more to make our visit as perfect as it was. We had three courses of excellent food, the food is always perfect. Thank you to front and back of house staff for always making our visits to seven so relaxing and enjoyable. Great to see people doing what they do best again.More

I recently visited the restaurant with 2 friends and couldn’t have asked for more. Warmly welcomed and shown to our table which was cosy and warm with the outdoor heating. Meal was spot on as always and ate the lot! It was a perfect afternoon...with laughter from start to finish. Can’t thank the staff enough for looking after us so well. I’ve already booked in for next week!More

I have made it a little mission to support local hospitality since the easing of lockdown. Seven has been the best experience of outside dining that I have found so far. The food was of the usual exceptional standard. David and Tamzin provided service with...a smile and a little humour that was really appreciated by our group. The sheltered court yard set up with gazebo and heaters was just the ticket and kept us all warm and dry. Hats off to all at Seven, you've really embraced the outside dining and are delivering it fantastically well!More
