Hmm where shall I start - been here before and found it to be pleasant if not amazing, today was such a disappointment. From the moment we arrived - I had booked a table - the waitress was not smiley and appeared to be having...More

The Derby Arms is a great pub. Lovely food and nice staff. Good menu choice with lots of variety. Nice decor. My only criticism would be that the toilets need more hygiene checks. Highly recommended

Me and my friend went here for a evening meal, the restaurant was fully booked so we sat in the bar area and had a lovely relaxing meal.

Hey _lisaanddeclan Glad you enjoyed the night. That's the best part about having the space we do; when dining casually, you'll be taken care of correctly. Hope to see you in the near future, The Derby Arms Management
