Clean fresh and bright since the refurb. I'm not a carvery fan but there is a good choice of non carvery options with some interesting pizzas! If you haven't been since the update, (we vowed never to go back as it was before) give it another chance.

We regularly visit the De Rodes for their buffet breakfast and we absolutely cannot fault it. It's a great start to a Saturday/Sunday morning to fill up ahead of a day out. Just off the M,1 it's usually our first stop before we embark on a day out. The food is great quality, plentiful, fresh and warm. Staff are friendly... More

Slated de rodes a lot in recent months. But been two or three times since the refurbishment and the food has got so much better! My only gripe is that the company should do vouchers every so often.

Ordered soup this came cold, ordered potato skins, these were deep fried and just fat, not impressed complained and received a full refund, but no sorry! This is a local pub and we thought the revamp would improve the quality but sadly not.

First impressions are important and these were really positive when being served at the bar. The gentleman (the manager?) was warm, friendly, welcoming and appeared happy in his job. The food bar area was very clean and the choices were excellent. Value for money. My reason for only 4 stars is that whilst the food was tasty and edible, it... More

After having a appointment at the van dykes hotel for a potential wedding venue, we went for a little explore down the road, looking for potential hotels for guests if we picked this venue, came to the pub which has been an age since last visit.... So it's had a big facelift... Was quiet to begin with and we arrived... More

Finally went to De Rodes today for a carvery after the refurb! Was so hoping it would be just as good as it used to be because in my opinion it's the best around......and I can confirm it is! The refurb has really smartened the place up and the new menu looks fab and great value. It was super busy... More

Excellent value fry-up, all you can eat for less than a fiver. All you can drink tea and coffee for about £1.80, don't expect coffee shop quality though!
