About Blacksmiths Loft
Fresh, locally-sourced food
At The Blacksmith’s Loft restaurant, you’ll find only freshly-cooked food, prepared from scratch. Our Head Chef, Andy Ellis, works tirelessly to source the very best meat, fish and seasonal vegetables from leading suppliers in and around Derby.
Food was good quality. But the pork&cider main course was particularly small in comparison to other dishes. Disappointing. The still mineral water was not served cold. This is unacceptable for a £3.50 price for 750ml. The bottles of white wine weren't opened at the table in front of us. This is bad service. Especially for a high class restaurant.
Bar tender top notch, would highly recommend
First I would like to say your Sunday lunch is really good the only negative points would be that your kitchen staff can cook but they really need to change there starters & desserts little disappointing that it's been the Same all summer!!!!also I had a hair in my dessert I should have made a point off it but it's been the first time that anything like that has happened there,,,it has not put me off from going again
First time in bar and restaurant! What a great bunch of staff ! From when we first entered we were made extremely welcome This followed through up evening meal upstairs ! Fantastic food , cocktails and the desert we had was incredible! We will definitely be returning , and the group of ladies we went out with are all returning with their partners. Amazing night all round !
Our first and last experience with the Blacksmiths lounge/loft. We booked weeks ago for our anniversary dinner thinking it would be somewhere special, and ended up having to leave before eating. The drinks downstairs were seriously poor, but we held out for the restaurant as we'd heard the food was great. On arriving upstairs there was nobody around to greet us. The prosecco was cold, wet, and bubbly, but there the praise ends - paint stripper can be found for less than £30 elsewhere. The seriously explicit hip hop (with the chef's enthusiastic vocal accompaniment) blaring from the kitchen clashed somewhat with the acoustic guitar music. When we mentioned this to our waiter he went to the kitchen and it was turned down (not off) for all of two minutes before returning with gusto. We paid for our drinks and left, luckily finding a table elsewhere. A really disappointing experience.
We came to the loft for the Sunday lunch. The food was cooked to perfection. The service was just as good, they did not rush us and was very helpful. This is the third time I have been to the Loft and the standards are still as high.
A pleasant experience I would come again
Brilliant food in a brilliant atmosphere. Really enjoyed everything about our evening. The service was impeccable from start to finish. Really high class food well presented. Had a drink in the afternoon, beer paddle and cheese, genius! Only booked in the afternoon and the staff went the extra mile to get us in. Highly recommend!
Amazing food. The cheesecake was delicious as was all the food we had to eat. Good fast friendly service. Highly recommend and we will return
Lovely atmosphere, quick service and amazing food, definitely will be back 😀

My husband have been to blacksmiths loft for evening meals Sunday lunch and just to sit in lounge for drinks. We've always found it to be a pleasant and lovely experience. Yesterday we bought along my family and they really enjoyed it. They and us will be coming again soon. Staff were lovely professional helpful and very warm and welcoming.
We recently enjoyed a perfect evening at the Blacksmith loft. I booked online and asked for a quiet table as we were celebrating our anniversary. On arrival we were greeted with a complimentary glass of bubbly and a lovely anniversary card. Such a kind thoughtful touch. Everything about the evening was perfect. We shared a chateaubriand steak, which was delicious! This was followed by a lemon meringue cheesecake which was wonderful. The staff were attentive, polite and hard working. Well done and thank you to you all for a lovely evening.
We had a brilliant graduation dinner here, all nine of us had perfect food, expertly cooked, presented and served, we will definitely be back, 🙏 do try if you have not eaten here before 👌🏽
We had a great time, food good and staff very friendly. Nice touch of a card and glass of Proscecco for my sister whose Birthday we were celebrating
Absolutely amazing as allways. Price wise it's avarage for the area but the quality of food, service and atmosphere is definitely above the rest!
Lovely steak, cooked perfectly rare.
Absolutely wonderful. Friendly and efficient staff, great drinks selection, and great surroundings. The quality of the food and cooking were exceptional, especially given the price - We would gladly have paid twice as much! Absolutely no bad points, we will be back, thanks!
The blacksmiths yard is fast becoming our “go to” place for a Sunday lunch. The staff are fabulous and the food is delicious! It is definitely a place we would recommend to friends. The atmosphere is very friendly, both upstairs in the restaurant and downstairs in the bar, where it essential that you stay for apres meal drinks to listen to the open mic delights. Enjoy x
As excellent as our last visit. We will definitely have to return again in the near future.
We had a delicious meal. My partner is a celiac so it was refreshing to be able to order anything on the menu. Our waiter was very informative and helpful. On top of that we thought it was very good value for money. Will be back.
Food and drink score would have been higher, but quality of the meat (lamb) was poor. Good choice and interesting menu.
This is the first time we have eaten at the Blacksmith's loft. We have visited the bar area numerous times, so from experience we new the service would be second to none as always. As for the food and service we received upstairs we were well looked after the food was perfect. This is well worth a visit for the food and the service and also the staff are very friendly
We had a lovely evening. The food and service was excellent. My husband is a Celiac so it was great to go to a restaurant where the Menu is all gluten free. We will definitely go back and have already recommended the restaurant to friends.
Dined here for fathers day with son and mother. The food and service was excellent. A small gift associated with fathers day was on each table which was a great touch.
