Very disappointed, visited this morning for breakfast, took a table and left after 30 minutes of being ignored. The cafe was at approximately 75% occupancy so not slammed. Two couples that arrived after us had their orders taken and one even had their drinks arrive whilst we were still waiting. I attracted the attention of both waitresses, and was told... More

Came here for breakfast with my wife. The meat is quality, you can just tell. So top marks. Service was quick and polite. The bill was a fair price and coffee good. I had the large breakfast, which was massive. A few bits (beans and something else) were a tad cold. I'm sure they would have sorted if I'd of... More

Happened to see the cafe as driving through. Excellent breakfast (sausages in particular) and great value. Will certainly visit again if passing.

The food was cold. How difficult is it to cook up and English breakfast? It arrives cold and swimming in grease! The coffee came without milk and took another 25 minutes for the milk to arrive. Service was very poor with an attitude that was worse. How this place stays in business is a wonder all to itself. Pricey and... More

I have been going here for years and always loved it here. This was my first visit since Godfrey's has changed hands. The food was good, although the paprika on the chips was not to my taste. The young waitresses were quick to take our order, but could have done with a smile! When ordering a glass of tap water,... More

A superb cafe bistro that offers outstanding food at a real value for money price. Located in the town of Duffield in the picturesque Derwent Valley, Godfrey's is a must visit for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The owner/chef recently catered for my wife's 50th birthday celebration, providing a three course dinner that was of the highest quality, and service that... More

We arrived in Duffield after catching the train from Wirksworth only to find that everywhere stopped serving food at 2.30pm! On entering the cafe I was told that they too stopped serving food at 2.30pm but when the owner saw how disappointed (and clearly starving!) I was, he very kindly offered to make us something. We had a lovely paella... More
