About Silk Mill Ale & Cider House
Our British menu takes influence from all four corners of the British Isles, embracing ideas and techniques from Victorian London dining to 70’s retro steak houses, the great British seaside holiday and remote Derbyshire villages where we found long lost family recipes.
Although the Silk Mill is a very atmospheric place and serves great beer, the food was not amazing. Three of the guys I was with wanted the duckies, but there were none on. On a Saturday night! The replacements weren't great. My dad's lamb was tough and the onion rings were really greasy. I think in future we would come for a drink but not food.
Fabulous food again
As a large group of 14 colleagues from various European and African countries looking for a traditional British pub experience, the Silk Mill fitted the bill perfectly! Great food, friendly service and perfect ambience. Thanks for a great night out, just wish I lived in Derby so that I could dine and drink here more often.
Good food and friendly service.
Always great food and good atmosphere. Will be going again when in Derby.
Absolutely brilliant night, staff couldn't do enough for us even though it a was busy night, what ever we asked "no problem" highly recommend The food is 1st rate and not the first time we have been there, very nice menu and actually very different. We'll thought out and reasonably priced, can't wait to go back
Great service, lovely food and nice atmosphere! I would definitely recommend!
Great food, and cider!
Very impressed with the service received through out my booking till the end of the evening. Well done everyone front and back of house :-)
Visited on a Saturday night at the same time as a 21st birthday party at the next table. The lady that served us did her best to provide good service but actually could not cope on her own. She eventually got some help. So I applaud her for an outstanding job and critisize the management team for not recognising the issue and being prepared with a team identified to cover the dining area.
Perfect Sunday lunch, beef perfectly cooked and Yorkshires to die for
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. First time visiting and will definitely be going again. The service was great- couldn’t be more attentive. Food great and well presented
Good range of cider and beer. Very busy pub but luckily we were in separated off food section. Food okay, nothing special. A friend I was with had plastic in their burger. This was following a neighbouring table finding plastic in their 10minutes earlier. (You would think especially if this had just occurred they would check?!?) Yes he had his money for this meal taken off, but it doesn't make me think the food was any better. Plus, the service was ridiculously slow and the waitress believed it fun to make jokes about the plastic in the meal...very inapproptiate.
The cherry stout was particularly good.
A family celebration get together which you certainly made special. The room (upstairs) was perfect for a small party. The food was great & the two girls who looked after us, Amy & Kylie were outstanding and definitely contributed to making it a wonderful evening. I would certainly recommend you to all my friends. Thank you once again. Mal D
You certainly know how to deliver flavoursome food, especially pig! We were a large party between Christmas and New Year, and the timing and quality of the food was superb, thank you!!
All staff that looked after us were 1 st class as was the food cannot say anything negative will definitely be returning.
Good food and great beer.
The staff made it a lovely evening and the young man on table service whose name was Chris was so polite and made sure we wanted for nothing. People like him and your Amazing food make people like me and my partner return. Thank you Silk Mill staff you nailed it perfect night for me.
That’s two Lovely meals, once at Xmas and then again last Sunday. No problems from me Keep up the good work.
Lovely staff and lovely Sunday dinner. Thank you.
This was our first visit to the silk mill and we loved it. The food was great and presented well. The service was good and everyone was friendly and professional and the decor was everything we expected. We had a lovely evening to celebrate our birthdays and we will certainly be back.
Excellent service and food was superb.... would highly recommend
