About Hotel Van Dyk - Southgate Brasserie
First established in 1991, Southgate Brasserie at Van Dyk quickly gained a reputation as the place to be for the finest grill food in Derbyshire.
In keeping with this original concept, our executive chef has created new seasonal menus.
Delicious dishes range from grill favourites alongside the restaurant’s signature Beef Bourguignon and an extensive sweet menu – the first of its kind in Derbyshire. Lively and welcoming, the re-imagined restaurant fuses Van Dyk’s iconic elegance with a contemporary tone and creative details. Our Interior architect was commissioned to create a vibrant and timeless setting.
I would like to thank all the staff for a wonderful night. There were 19 of us in the Bowden Restaurant which was set up beautifully, the staff were extremely attentive and even found extra puddings for those that hadn't pre ordered one. The meals were all delicious and food was plentiful. Very pleased and a wonderful memory to treasure with all the family.
The food was excellent and the service we got in the Bowden Restaurant was outstanding.
Service was unusually poor. Not all starters were brought out together, and we had to ask multiple times. Over a 30 min wait on some. Spoons not brought for desserts and had to ask for these - was presented with a handful of spoons with a comment that there would hopefully be enough! Drinks served with contents running down the outside of the glass- not a nice look for Irish coffee. On a positive note, the food was good.
Lovely stylish restaurant, with courteous staff. Always a pleasure to visit.
The room emptied quite quickly and we were the only ones left and felt like we were getting in the way of your preparations for breakfast
Debbie, Jane and all the staff make you very welcome. The food was great, tasty served hot and just the right gap between starters and main courses. Loyalty discount is an added bonus, we eat here regularly because its so enjoyable.
It was very busy and there seemed not be enough staff, consequently we were waiting for long periods between ordering, eating etc. The food wasnt really hot enough. We put this down to shortage of staff who were doing their best. We eat regularly here and shall continue do so.
good food as always good prices with loyalty card
Excellent food & lovely setting
Van Dyks continues to impress. There was a great selection of food on the menu which made it difficult to choose.😂 All of the meals that we had tasted amazing. Would highly recommend this place.
The afternoon tea was nice but the scones were very dry and hard
We had an amazing time we are never disappointed with our experience here keep up the good work and the staff are a credit to you too very friendly while maintaining to be professional
An enjoyable meal with good service and a reasonable bill. Perhaps quiet music in the background could add to atmosphere
I made an online booking for 8.30pm on Saturday 10th November and received a confirmation email to that effect. When I arrived at the restaurant at about 7.55pm I was told my reservation was for 7.45pm. I would suggest that the online booking system be sorted or whoever inputs the restaurant reservation list concentrates on their job. I was made to feel that I had made a mistake when I clearly had not. The food was very good however having been allocated a table near to the bar (Table 8 I believe) I was forced to listen to the staff conversation as the congregated at the end of the bar near us.
Lovely meal, good service, a great evening out.
Brilliant food, service perfect but very slow
Had a really lovely time at Van Dykes. Our meal was lovely. Thought it was a little more expensive than I was expecting, however, is in more luxurious surroundings than most places. The staff were really nice and helpful. Well worth a visit. Will definitely go back.
Food very good, i never give five stars unless it absolutely fabulous 4 is excellent from me with somewhere to go when you find something exceptional. both sauces with meals were overly salty and that took a slight edge off, never been before on a Saturday, it was a little busy as a lot of people were arriving for the Tom Jones's tribute.............glad we were just eating......overall very good we will continue to visit and tbh the staff although busy seemed to of upped their game and where attentive. My last point is if you eat here relatively often the menu although nice can get to the stage were you begin to struggle to choose something, i have always felt a few specials would help out regulars with some enhanced variety.
Lovely as always!
Food was excellent, service a little slow in between courses...
90 minute wait for a salad and a pie. Constituent parts of the salad missing and lumpy gravy - you can get that quality of food at a Stonehouse carvery.
We had a lovely evening. The food was very good, as usual
We love coming here but the service was very slow. The food great, but we were waiting a long time between courses and for the bill.
