In Duffield for a railway event and fancied a pint. Ended up with a Scotch egg and a sausage roll! Great choice of beers and the food was tasty. Barman welcoming and knowledgeable. Right by where the path from the station comes out. Would recommend...and will visit again.More

Attended an Indian Food event which was very disappointing & badly thought out. Arrived an hour before the event & pleased you get the last table as they don’t take bookings. However instead of taking food orders you had to queue outside in the cold...for the food. Gave up after half an hour. Great place for beers but feel that the event should have been so much better. One guy joined us at our table to eat his food and he said it was lukewarm with very limp soggy chips.More

I had not visited anywhere that works quite the same way as The Town Street Tao before and I have to confess that I was a little wary of the concept. For those that have not visited, you find your seat/table if you can and...peruse the beer menu on the wall / beam. The waiter then comes to take your order - hence my initial panic regards how long it could take to get a drink and whether the staff would notice when I was approaching the bottom again. I don't recall the young man's name but he was quite new to the position and was a natural - engaging us in conversation and offering recommendations regards the available beers etc. Also, my fears were quickly abated as the excellent level of service meant that we had soon had 4 drinks rather than the 3 we might have otherwise had - not that there was any form of pressure at any time. All round great experience and well worth multiple return visits. As well as their own ales it was also good to see the local Darley Abbey Cider on sale here.More

If you like a fine beer (or cider), then this is the place for you. Quite an intimate place where the drinks are brought to your table. No loud music, so a great place to have a conversation.
