    As usual, location good, food ok, however, let down by surly female waiting staff,!!!! Everything seemed to much trouble,!!! Remember, first impressions count,!!! I was in the restaurant trade for many years, if my attitude was like that, I’d would have been sacked on the spot!!!!

    We were very impressed with everything about the Derby Inn. Our first time there as had to cancel previous bookings due to covid or illness. A great halfway meeting point for us and our guests. Very good menu, good portions, fair prices and a lovely atmosphere. Thank you

    We had originally booked an outdoor booth for diner due to the positive weather forecast. We did not realise however, that this was also the permitted smoking area. As an ex-smoker, I'm the worst critic, but the team at The Derby, reseated us inside with no concern. The staff and food and drinks were superb. Despite a full dining area and a large table of 20, the staff were attentive and courteous. Would go back if ever in the area again.

    This is our second visit to this delightful pub/restaurant and we were not disappointed at all on either occasion. The food is delightful and plenty of it too. The staff are exceptionally friendly and very keen to please. Nothing is too much trouble. On this last visit we had a Sunday roast (Pork and Beef together) and it was so moreish. We would highly recommend this pub.

    Very happy with the service, we were well looked after. The food is a bit pricey, but quality good. They were helpful and allowed starters as mains etc without any problem. We only come here on occasion but no problem. Background music in the restaurant area was a bit loud.

    We wanted somewhere simple for our wedding anniversary lunch that concentrated on good food nicely presented in a pleasant atmosphere.The Derby gave us that! Lovely choice.I had the pork medallions and my husband the beef and ale pie.We both treated ourselves to Eton mess for desert.Efficient and friendly service Tidy comfortable garden with cabins if you want to eat outdoors. We will be taking family there next time they visit.Easy to park as it is on a dead end road.

    Our first visit to The Derby and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Sunday roast was excellent and I loved the homemade Apple Crumble. The service was great, very welcoming and attentive without being overbearing. We would definitely come again on a weekday and try something different from the extensive and varied menu.

    No roasts for a 3.30pm booking despite it being Sunday and Father’s Day! Not told about limited menu until after we’d sat down at the table with the menus for 15 minutes. Not asked if we wanted any additional drinks in the 90 minutes we were eating our meal. Disappointing experience this time when we came especially because we’ve had really good roasts before on a Sunday and on special occasion meals as well. Communication could have been better, particularly for those who had booked their tables in advance for a special occasion.

    At the time we dined (5pm) the restaurant was not busy. It was pleasant dining with friends. Lovely English pub atmosphere with a touch of Greek! Relaxing and waitress/waitor attentive and helpful.
