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.
Lunch taken in The Bowden as the Southgate was closed for refurbishment. Service efficient and food very good as always. This time, with the Hot Smoked Salmon salad, the potato salad was served in a separate dish as opposed to on the plate. Portion size (potato salad) a bit too big though some wouldn't complain. Nice to see one no longer has to agree to vacate the table in 90 minutes-this can be only a good thing as the previous set up could have deterred bookings.
Long delay between starter and main course. Both main courses had to be returned, one was cold and on the other, the steak was undercooked. As a consequence of the delay and the returned food it was 10 pm before we were eating our main courses. Staff were very apologetic and gave us both a free glass of wine, but the evening was spoiled. We will not return.
Would have been nice to have bread rolls and butter on table when we sat down. Excellent service
Excellent service, as always
The afternoon was lovely I been before and you do the best one it's very good value for money and the staff are lovely and always look so smart
Me and my wife sent for lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was very nice would definitely go back maybe in the evening next time.
Food was ok, had Sunday roast and meat was chewy, staff failed to tell us what wasn’t available on the menu when seated so didn’t know until they came and took the order then we had to choose another option. Staff weren’t very friendly.
Always first class
Good food. Friendly staff
We have been coming to Hotel Van Dyk for 10 years and we agreed last night was the best visit we have had. The food was genuinely delicious. The service was efficient and pleasant. We noticed a big difference with the staff last night, in the past they have been lacking in basic customer service skills and manners. We are looking forward to The new updated hotel too. So thank you for a lovely evening last night
Love the venue, staff are always friendly and the food is great. The Loyalty card system works a treat and makes it real value for money. Normally give everything 5 stars, but I have to be fair and the service only got 4 simply because they forgot one of the meals. It was quickly rectified so hence the 4 stars. Highly recommend!
The starter (scallops & black pudding) was just wow! Completely knocked me for six, never had anything so good. I asked the server to pass my compliments on to the chef. Everything else we had was equally stunning
Apparent repairs to a chandelier led to a 15 minutes delay in being able to gain access to the restaurant. That said, service was very good being a little quicker than previous. The food is very good with manageable portion sizes (ie. not too much) and very tasty. The menu included favourites from the past and a number of new items. Excellent value for money during this promotion week. Will definitely visit again, and fairly soon.
Cornflake tart is to die for!
Superb Sunday lunch friend had the traditional Sunday roast with beef which is his absolute favourite & he loved it! I had the beef Bourguignon which was simple superb. Great value quality food in a lovely setting.
Worth getting a loyalty card, some really good offers.
Been a few times now. Always good food. Friendly staff.
A very enjoyable evening The piano music was a little too much and in my opinion should be played for short periods giving the diners a break. The Loyalty card discount keeps the costs within reason Dave
Well worth getting a loyalty card... some great savings.
This restaurant has improved greatly over the last year. I believe it is down to an excellent restaurant manager and good wholesome food cooked to perfection.
Excellent as always :-)
Excellent Venue and Food also very friendly helpful and pleasant Staff
Stunning food, venue & service!
Excellent greeting by your staff and extremely friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and very reasonably priced for the amount of food we received. Excellent.
