“Pub food with style”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Yes this is pub food at it's best. Service is slow as the food is fresh. If your not happy with your meal the staff do everything possible to fixc this for you. Often visit The Donkey Derby in Chesterfield great pub food at great prices.

“Pub Grub ...Yes, but served with care”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

we have been here a couple of times recently, as 'pub grub' goes this is good, , it offers good value for money and the staff go the extra mile to make sure you are happy.
Although a chain pub, it seems to be run well, although we did have to wait to get served whilst ordering the food, once ordered it was served quickly.
All in all if you want a pub that serves good sized portions, for a good price... then try this pub.

“Highly Recommend”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Really good food (particularly the rump steak with mushroom/peppercorn topping), catering for all appetites (if you are seriously hungry try the challenge burger!). Good selection of wines at very reasonable prices. The staff are very friendly, providing excellent service and always with a smile.

“Seriously ok”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We went with another couple on a sat night and had a pleasant dining experience. The staff were pleasant, the wine was more than satisfactory and well priced. The challenge burger my other half had was awesome and overwhelming to say the least but tasted good and my chicken & bacon dish was very good, overall an enjoyable evening for an average sat night out and about. The puss were big too and we ended up sharing one as too big for one! Thanks
