    Went to the Derby Inn as it was recommended by friends. Wonderful meal was had by all 4 of us, excellent menu and the staff were friendly and attentive. Prices are top end of normal pub prices, but considering the quantity and quality of our meals we left our evening very satisfied.

    Although we had booked a table for Sunday lunch at 2.30 the restaurant was absolutely packed and very noisy. Despite this, the service was swift, efficient and extremely friendly. The Derby has been one of our favorite pubs ever since Leo and his team took over and our friends who were visiting from Warwickshire were very impressed.

    Haven’t dined here for quite a while, as previously it had gone off the boil. No such problems last night, we went on a Saturday night, good job we had booked as it was buzzing and busy. It was cold outside, but nice and warm inside, service was excellent, and the quality of the food was top notch. We shall be returning soon.

    We enjoyed a really good value 'late lunch' (3.30pm) with friends at the Derby Inn yesterday. We moved from the table we had been allocated which was a bit small for four and rather noisier in the main area. The larger table opposite the bar was perfect and we didn't feel our laughter was intruding on other customers. The menu was adequate for our needs and we all had a version of the Sunday roast which was well cooked and presented, plenty of it and very tasty. No one had a starter and we didn't have wine yesterday so I can't comment on either of those. The two puddings we shared were excellent and followed by very good tea and coffee. Sadly, with age comes good sense and gone are the days when we drink too much at lunchtime! Service was really good, staff very friendly and we were never under any pressure to hurry even though we were the last 'lunch bookings' to leave. We will definitely go again and recommend to others. Thank you for a lovely lunch that I didnt have to cook!

    We have visited twice now following a recommendation from a neighbour both times the food has been amazing, service incredible, great atmosphere and decoration, and I have to say exceptionally clean, to top it all off good value for money. Couldn't recommend enough well worth the visit. And so nice that it is run by a family, I think that makes it even more special.

    Always good food and a nice atmosphere . We have eaten there many times in the past and will continue to do so. Always good food and service. We come as a group of 6 around once a month and always enjoy our meal. I came yesterday with an old lady I look after and she enjoyed her meal immensely . Keep the good work and I am sure we wil see you again over the next couple of weeks.
