Restaurants & Bars

Good food and drink are essential ingredients for any getaway and our hotel restaurants and bars don’t disappoint. From breakfasts that leave you raring to go, to evening meals with the wow factor we’ve got all your culinary needs covered.

  • Brasserie Restaurant
  • Lounge Bar

Brasserie Restaurant

Savour classic cuisine and fine wine in the relaxed environment of the Brasserie Restaurant. Linger over a three-course dinner or stick to the mains if you're heading out for the evening. At breakfast, we put on a help-yourself buffet with both continental and cooked items, plus dishes cooked to order such as porridge, poached eggs and kippers. We're also known for our cracking Sunday lunch. Settle down with family and friends for a traditional roast with Yorkshire pudding. There's also a veggie option, as well as continental starters and tempting desserts to finish with. Perhaps burn off the calories with an afternoon walk in the Peak District?

Lounge Bar

The cosy and intimate Lounge Bar has an impressive wine list and range of beverages, and is the perfect place to unwind after shopping in Derby or hiking in the countryside. Bar food is available throughout the day, from sandwiches and wraps to pasta and burgers. Sports fans can watch all the latest Premier League and European football matches on the big screen over a craft beer, glass of house red or tonic water. And don't miss the remarkable menu created for Queen Victoria's visit that hangs on the wall of the bar. It's enough to make you feel full just looking at it!
