Description: Located in the centre of the vibrant city of Derby, Mansion Restaurant and Wine Bar caters to the increasingly selective local clientele, providing fabulous food and wine in a relaxed, stylish setting. Large and spacious, the airy bar-dining room is the perfect all day pick for chilled out lunches, romantic dinners or drinks with friends, food is served from 11am ���til late, with a 1am license meaning that your evening needn���t end abruptly before you���re ready. The brasserie menu here at Mansion offers a wide array of unpretentious dishes, ranging from the simplest of snacks to hearty all day breakfasts, picking platters and quick and easy sandwiches and jackets for speedy weekday lunches. However the more refined a la carte menu, overseen by talented chef Lisa Thorley, who trained in Buxton but learnt her trade in top London restaurants, is a focused selection of rich European modern classics made using seasonal and local ingredients wherever possible. Special events include ladies nights, themed music evenings and dances and Saturdays bring with them a decadent champagne breakfast.

“Christmas day meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

We had the pleasure of spending Xmas day here, and so glad we did. The atmosphere, service, music and meal was perfect. We had an amazing time and will hopefully book again for the same. Thanks mansion!

“Superb food and overall dining experience for a reasonable price too.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

I had read good things about this restaurant so thought I would try it out for myself and I certainly agree with the positive feedback that it receives.

I had three courses and each one was so tasty and plenty of it. Each course was well presented too.

Would highly recommend this restaurant and I shall definitely be returning.

Thank you for taking the time to review Mansion.

I understand by looking back through our reservation system you dined with us at 1pm on Saturday 26th January.

Your order consisted of bread (to share), a vegetable wellington and a rack of ribs.

Please accept my sincere apologies that you perceived your experience to be dreadful.

I will be in touch via the personal e-mail address supplied when you booked with us. Rest assured I am extremely eager to understand your experience of Mansion and to see what we can do to rectify that experience.

We aim for 100% customer satisfaction and it really does hurt us when our standards have fell below what our customers are expecting.

“Fabulous restaurant and bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

This bar must be the best in Derby, quality oozes from the premises as soon as you walk in.
Then there is the food, gorgeous bears no relevance, superb is so much more as to the description I would give. My wife suggested that on Christmas Eve we eat at The Mansion, I did not hesitate and booked it immediately, roll on Christmas Eve.

“Fab food and lively atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Absolutely gorgeous food, and the atmosphere later on was loud and lively as they had a singer on and everyone was up dancing until after 1am, ideal if you are planning a group trip and don't want to have to move from place to place, ad great value for money.
