We were shown to a table restaurant style when wanting a quick late lunch on a busy Saturday. Good quick service, nice food, pleasant atmosphere and good value. Excellent.

We come to the restaurant a few times a year for family meals, usually brunch which is normally very good despite the fact that the tables are really crammed in so close together it is a struggle to reach one's table.

My meal in particular was extremely disappointing. I chose turkey given their meats are normally high quality. This "turkey" was like processed meat cut from a roll. It was way over salted along with the cold vegetables that were served. Everyone was served an unusually small portion of meat or fish and the place was so crowded we went home for pudding.

We usually have our annual Christmas Lunch here and this year did not disappoint. I’m not particularly keen on parsnips, but as fritters they were looking very. My other half had the traditional turkey with all the trimmings which she said was very good - I went for the butternut Arancini and they were delicious. The puds were light and and full of flavour - the damson jam and gin fool was superb. The staff are always friendly and efficient.

We enjoyed the afternoon, the meal was excellent and the staff were very efficient and looked after us very well. The choir was very good and entertaining. Good value for the price will certainly come again.

Went for Xmas lunch, it was rather good but perhaps missing the wow factor on taste. Their usual set menu is excellent value and tasty too.
Great coffee and their scones are amongst the best in Derbyshire.
Pleasant efficient staff.
