About The Bubble Inn
Canalside country gastro pub in derby
Ok, I want to be super honest here so you can improve. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They seemed to lack structure in what they were doing. We were seated and after 10 mins had to ask to place our order. No one came after another 5 minutes, so I asked again. We ordered main courses only. We had been there hour by the time we were served a simple Sunday dinner. As a veggie, there was no veggie option other than mousaka, which I felt was poor. The other meals that came had nicely cooked meat, burnt roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding, with stuffing balls that were rock hard. We did feed this back, and were offered replacements, however by the time they came we had finished. We then ordered desert. I was asked if I wanted ice cream or custard with my desert, I asked for ice cream and was served custard! I didn't bother to say as by that point we had had enough. It was our first time there and I can say our last. The menu was very basic and lacked any choice for a veggie. The rest seemed nice, yet a simple sunday dinner was not good. Finally the veg was served with the dinner and we had to ask for spoons to serve it on to our plates. I was also served with meat gravy when I ordered a veggie meal. Sorry this wasn't more positive :( One more thing. I clearly spelt my name for the lady who took the booking and when I gave her my email. I don't spell it how she entered it here! It's Clare not Clair!
Enjoyed a Sunday lunch with the family at the Bubble Inn. Great service, choice of food, excellent drink quality and the food was delicious. An excellent dining experience. Their Vegetarian Moussaka is outstanding!!
Hi. Booked a table for two on the 17th. Only stayed for a drink in the end as the eating area downstairs was tatty & dated compared the the rest of the pub & spoiled the occasion along with the menu not having much choice.. lovely location & lovely main pub area when you first enter but the eating area downstairs we were shown to needs bringing up to the same standard as the rest of it. Sorry for the criticism it just looked like an old dated pub sat in there. Staff were lovely though.
I really liked how easy it was to book. The staff were friendly and attentive without being annoying. It was extremely hot upstairs where we sat making it difficult to finish our meals The food was delicious and portions were very generous but maybe a bit overpriced. I would definitely come here again for a special celebration as overall I was very impressed
Your food was amazing and your staff faultless. Can't wait to come back
The food was amazing but the service was poor. At the bar before entering the restaurant it seemed like one lady was doing all the work while others were just standing about. We were shown to our table very quickly. Luckily we had already purchased drinks at the bar as other tables were waiting for a drink still after we had finished ours and we waited at the bar area. Food came and it was amazing. We had starters and mains. Both of these came in a timely manner. By this point the restaurant was quite busy and it took a while to have our plates collected. We then waited at least 45 minutes until we found someone to bring the bill. They seemed quite fine to of left us there all night. Overal the service was poor but the food was excellent.
Brilliant food and good portions, friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere
Lovely meal excellent service and great value all in a beautiful setting- we will be visiting again soon
Food was good, shame the same thing couldn't be said of the atmosphere which seemed to be dominated by boy/ girl racers using the car park and outside seating. Service at the table was prompt and polite, however the service at the bar was terrible with my wife having to ask to be served long after everyone else had been sorted even if they arrived at the bar after her! The Bubble inn hotel is one i'd recommend, the adjoining pub however is not one i'd return to unfortunately
Great food apart from my hubby's steak in the mixed grill, very gristley. Good service, a bit slow at times but we was in no rush. Good value for money. Nice drinkd. Will definitely return.
Best meal I can remember having in many a year, excellent service, lovely surroundings and happy daughters, can’t ask for any more, highly recommended!
Initially the service was good. We were seated promptly and given menus. Half an hour later we had still not ordered, despite tables coming in after us and were served. I had to go and find someone. We were then waiting approx 15mins for someone to come and clear the plates whilst the staff just stood chatting and laughing
Lovely atmosphere . Excellent service from very friendly staff. Food very tasty and good quality .
I had the kebab and after finding a few bits not cooked enough I ate the rest and told the waitress who said she’d check with the chef. I was then told the chicken had been probed and was cooked enough even though I’d sent back 5 uncooked pieces. This has unfortunately tarnished my time at the bubble
Always a pleasure to drink and dine here. Booked a table for 4 and even when i needed an extra place it was no bother.
Lovely setting and very nice food. Fab value for money.
First time to the Bubble and was very impressed by everything. We loved the Greek food we had and will be back again!
Had an amazing family meal. Lovely Carvery . Such nice pleasant staff . Definitely coming back!!!!
We have shared the details of our lovely meal yesterday on Facebook and hope you get the customers you deserve. The only let down was the nachos which I had. They were bland and the sour cream was very vinegary and the guacamole had no taste. But the other two meals were fantastic. We will be back again. Many thanks
