Spent a lovely birthday lunch at Darleys on 18/3/20. Had the most delightful meal which was perfect in every way. Due to the current climate it was very quiet in the restaurant which provoked a lovely unhurried atmosphere, which we took full advantage of. The staff were very professional and nothing was to much trouble. Having been a regular at Darleys over the past 20 years I’m happy to say that the change of ownership has in no way diminished the beautiful experience of dining there. Thank you for upholding the standards.

My favourite restaurant, excellent food & service. I would highly suggest Darleys. The staff as always deliver 5 star service. We have been coming for 15 years now & this is the first restaurant me & my now husband came out for a meal together so always holds a special place in my heart. You can never go wrong having a meal here.

We were made very welcome, all staff were very friendly, they were prepared to take photos, discuss food and generally have a chat. Nothing was too much trouble. It’s a difficult time for us all it was lovely to relax with a good wine, lovely food and a nice atmosphere.

The breakfast was lovely and its great that it is now available. There were just 2 things that we would like to raise as elements to think about. Firstly, £4.95 for a small black coffee seems a little over the top; I could understand it if it was a flat white etc but for a black coffee that seems a bit much. The atmosphere was really nice but now that there are new owners etc, it would be great to see the place have a little spruce up. The chair & curtain fabrics have been there for years now and are probably quite outdated, it could just do with a few modern touches here and there.
