About The Bubble Inn
Canalside country gastro pub in derby
Staff were just children and the food was poor for the money. My husband even had stomach ache when he got home after each the fish dish. We won’t be returning
Staff were all lovely and friendly and the food was great! Definitely coming back!
At 50% off food prices, this was a good meal and evening out, if paying full prices, then I'd feel the meals are too expensive. Nice service and atmosphere.
Been most weeks while your half price offer on. Good service and good food. Would recommend. Only problem we found was we were upstairs and no heating on. Otherwise could not fault, very polite staff and service.
Always a warm greeting by Connie. Good food & efficient service
We visited it three time in two week , the staff were friendly and the food was very good but we surprised that in last visit there was no skinny fries in the menu any more and sticky toffee pudding as well . We hope they could make it again because we prefer the main course with skinny fries and we loved the sticky toffee pudding.
Very good food and service
We are a little group of retired Ambulance colleagues that meet roughly every 4/5 weeks. You have always been on our ' must return' list!! We thought at first on arrival that you had a Birthday party, let's say you were very very busy!! Food half price! Wow what a bonus... The young ladies that serve on your tables are a credit to your business.. full of apology for delay .. tentative and sympathetic.. they sure went that extra mile. Food was well presented and up to its normal standard.. Mr Bubble Inn you just make sure your staff receive praise and an extra bonus would be nice!!! Would we return.. hopefully never in our profession capacity!!! For your yummy menu?? Hell yes.
Really nice night, food great
Came with the family including three children. Had a lovely meal ( I had the carvery ) which was great. We had a very lovely experience. Thank you.
Had a lovely young lad serve us, was very attentive and polite! Having been before and the veggie choice being excellent, I was a little disappointed that the Sunday menu was that limited! (However vegan menu was still served) Would go back but perhaps not on a Sunday
Food is presented exceptionally well! The food quality is beyond expectation and the service and presentation is excellent. Highly recommend! Only criticism is that the Dessert menu needs looking at. As the group of 4 at our table all said the choice isn’t that good.
Great service and great food
As always an excellent meal. The staff are very helpful & obliging
Booked online and booking confirmed but when we arrived not in reservations book, still got seated ok but don’t know what would have happened if it was really busy. Sunday roast was lovely service good.
I was a bit disappointed this time. Last time we came to the bubble the menu was a lot better. With more fish dishes. The service we received seemed rushed. Our food burnt and the steak was tuff. And our glasses were dirty. No j20s and it was a Saturday night 8pm not great really.
Unfortunately, the service we received on Saturday evening was disappointing to say the least. Having been a number of times before, knowing the food was good made us attend again. However, the young members of staff didn’t seem to have a clue what they should or shouldn’t do with customers, for example, making eye contact and not then attending to ask if anything was the matter or if we needed something else. We did want a dessert, as the main meals were spot on, but two separate waitresses/waiters came to clear our table (eventually) but neither asked if we’d like to review the dessert menu. We waited an additional 45/50 minutes to try and catch the attention from anyone but nobody came, only seeming to care about cleaning tables. Again, having been to the Bubble a number of times, I know this isn’t common customer service so we were disappointed with this. Upon paying (which I had to go down to the bar myself to ask for the bill), we were greeted to a lovely waitress who sorted our bill. It appeared they couldn’t find us on the till under the table number we had sat on, but eventually found our meals, albeit with one meal added in error that we had to swap, so effectively the bill was also wrong and had not been amended. Better care and attention to customers is all we ask for. As I say, the food was great and didn’t disappoint so perhaps educational awareness is all that’s required for some staff. There were 2 other tables around us that also had poor experiences as they officially complained, like myself at the bar.
Food was excellent . Will definitely be returning .
Fantastic food. Good value for money with the 50%off offer. Enjoyed my birthday meal
Food and drink are always 5* . The table service isnt as good as it used to be. We got showed to our table and were told by the waitress that she would be back in a few mins to take our drink order. We were waiting about 10 mins. And she appeared when we were just going to the bar to order.
Perfect thankyou! Will recommend and would love to return!
Once again lovely food and great service
We have been a few times before ,but this time service was not up to its usual standards. Food was not on par. It seemed to be under staffed and quality was not as good with the food.
Excellent food Very quiet when we arrived at 6pm waitress seemed a bit confused but did get the order right and was worth the effort
