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.
Excellent waiter Luke. Had private dining missed the lovely Xmas decorations from last year. Food was ok but felt I have had nicer meals with yourselves.
Had a really great time at our annual Christmas Lunch - the food & service were great, and the staff were very friendly. Hope to be back next year !!
Had called to see if we could get in any earlier and you were fully booked but could hear the guy on the phone talking to someone trying to see if there was any movement which was nice it wasn’t a straight no. Got there and both bar staff and server again was lovely and remembered I’d called earlier and again offered apologies. Meal was delicious. Will be back again!
Turkey dinner was tasteless, very disappointing.
Great night with friends but shocked that Lots of things unavailable on a Saturday night !!! Even no bacon for the burgers ! Could nobody nip to Tesco for some bacon ???
we were served by James (that was the name on the bill) he couldn't have done anymore for us....excellent service which made my dad's 81st birthday even more enjoyable. Food was excellent too...3 of us had the Sunday lunch which was wonderful and the other meals were equally as good...thanks again for fab food and great service
Lovely personal service
The food was not fabulous to be honest. My friend and I had burgers and they were ok, small portion of chips even for three women. Guy serving us was very nice and helpful though. Not a great range of soft drinks for a diabetic, she ended up having to have water.
This was a family meal out for my mother’s 84th birthday and unfortunately it did not go particularly well. There were a couple of issues when we arrived - I had stated that we had a wheelchair user in the party but no one got back to me to mention that there was a step to get into the front door and another step to get to our table. My sister also decided to bring her dog (as she takes him regularly to The Rectory in Chesterfield without issue) only to be told he couldn’t be in the restaurant. This was not stated on the website! I have to say that the staff did their best and created us a table in a different area but the stress had already been caused. While the food itself was fairly good, three of the party ordered Homity Pie for their main only to be told that there were only two portions left. One person was happy to change their order so this, at this stage, was a minor issue. It was very disappointing that there were only three options for dessert so no one had anything after their mains. When I paid the bill I had to ask for a receipt and did not actually get to see what I was paying for until after I paid. When I got home my partner checked the receipt only to find that I had still been charged for thre Homity Pies instead of two Homity Pies and one Mushrooms on toast (a considerably cheaper dish). I cannot say we will be returning in a hurry.
Wonderful meal Friendly staff All round excellent
Enjoyable evening with tasty food served with a smile and at a good price
We just love this place. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, good choice of drinks and don't forget the great food.
Unlike all of our other visits, our server today was not really interested in her job, but otherwise the food and ales were fantastic as usual.
Service a bit erratic, not helped by one member of staff (not serving us) who appeared to be in a bad mood.
Great food and drink
Accommodated my partners request for the presentation of him fish and chips without a quibble. Very nice meal and service.
Great food, great service, can’t go wrong.
Awesome pub, excellent beer, food is always lovely. Would recommend anyone to visit either for food, drinks or both.
Staff gave excellent service and very polite and helpful Food was delicious only thing to let meal down was roast potatoes were hard perhaps if cut smaller and done for a bit longer
We throughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch with you very much - thank you . Possible Vegan options would be appreciated if you have opportunity to change the menu.
Very friendly .Easy to book with and accommodating when numbers increased .Tasty food
Game here as a group of 11, food was all great and served in good time. Service was brilliant and they were very accepting that two of our guests were a little late, would recommend!
Excellent food with a variety of choices that make it difficult to choose just one....
Portions too large - I had eaten enough after the starter. Unable to do justice to the main that was ordered.
