As the cafe was quiet, it was going to shut early at 2pm on Saturday lunchtime. My hubby and I appeared looking hungry and weary, and the owner/chef could not have been more helpful. I had plenty of options for my gluten free diet - I had a delicious mushroom stroganoff with salad and bread, hubby was very pleased with... More

Had a good cup of tea here. Nice ambience next to the flowing waters of the River Ecclesbourne. No doubt the food is good too - the sausage sandwich my companion had looked tasty.

We were only a group of 3 adults and one 2 year old in a pushchair. This will be my second unpleasant experience here, last time the milk was off in my Latte so... More

Have been visiting regularly for over 12 months and always have had good food. Friendly service from Chris and all the girls. The review that thinks they are rude, well never experienced it and maybe you need to lighten up a bit! N.B. I have no connection other than a very satisfied customer.

My friends from Nottinghamshire came over today to visit, and as we were in the Duffield area, I had already pre-booked a table for 1pm. Although we were a little late to arrive, the owner met us with a friendly greeting, and invited us to sit at our designated table. The waitress came first to ask us for our drinks... More

My husband and I went here on Saturday 22nd October for a themed Mandarin night. It was absolutely gorgeous. Food was amazing and very very tasty. The ambience was lovely too I would say romantic. It was a huge hit with others too as it was fully booked Staff were attentive and helpful. Can't for next themed night
