About The Palfrey
Located in the historic Old Blacksmiths Yard on Sadlergate, The Palfrey is a newly refurbished unique and contemporary restaurant and wine bar, where we aim to provide a relaxed and friendly environment for our customers.
As an independent establishment, passion is at the heart of everything we do. We offer an eclectic mix of food and drink, including a bespoke wine list, signature cocktails and specially created dishes using only the best local ingredients.
Split over two levels, our rustic and industrial bar can be found downstairs with adjacent courtyard for casual dining and drinks, whilst upstairs our inviting restaurant is full of intimate charm and contains the kitchen with an open pass to showcase our delicious food. Why not come and see for yourself the latest addition to Derby’s prospering and vibrant food and drink scene?
Definitely recommend this place as the food was absolutely gorgeous and the service and staff were brilliant.
Friendly and attentive service
The whole experience was absolutely superb. All food was excellent and the atmosphere and staff was all brilliant. Cant fault anything! Live music down in the bar after really elevated it as well and the cocktails were pretty dam cool too!
Really nice surroundings, great service and food! :-)
Beautiful food which couldn’t be faulted and very attentive staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them and made us feel very welcome. Thank you for a lovely meal!
Lovely meal and friendly staff. Portions are quite small but delicious. Did think it was a tad expensive.
This was our first trip to The Palfrey and we had a fantastic meal on a busy Saturday night. All of our food was excellent and the honeycomb part of my dessert was simply incredible. I'd definitely recommend visiting. The only negative comment I can make is that we waited over 20 minutes for our bill but overall it was a brilliant evening – we'll be back!
I invited a small group of ladies to join me at the Palfrey's Bottomless Prosecco Brunch one Saturday morning. My veggie breakfast was delicious, the Boston beans were incredible, and we thoroughly enjoyed the Prosecco. The service was spot on; the pace of the visit was perfect, and it provided us with the ideal environment to have a proper catch-up. I would thoroughly recommend The Palfrey, and I encourage others to try the Brunch options.
First time eating at the Palfrey and all I can say is Amazing! We both ordered fillet steak which was cooled to perfection. I can honestly say this was the best steak I've ever had. The triple cooked chips were sooooo good too. The the Palfrey mess......so light and tasty. All the staff we came into contact with were so friendly and kind which made our evening so enjoyable. Thank you!
Great food at a reasonable price
Thank you so so much to everyone who serviced us on Friday evening, every single one of your staff made it such a wonderful evening for my partner and I. The lovely birthday message with the pudding was such an amazing gesture, my partner loved it! Fabulous food throughout the evening, we will definitely be coming back soon!! Thank you again :)
Brilliant service and atmosphere. The bottomless brunch was delicious!!

Great service and food
Would highly recommend the Palfrey, the staff were brilliant, the atmosphere was great and my colleagues from Norway remarked on impressed they were - one of best places to eat in Derby
The food and service was to its usual excellent standards as on previous visits to the Palfrey. Would highly recommend it to anyone
First time and very impressed- very attentive and good delicious
My husband and I enjoyed a couple of amazing cocktails before sitting down to a delicious meal waited on by a delightful waitress and waiter ( sister and brother as it turned out). We were guests at an annual convention in the nearby Quad and have recommended this restaurant as a perfect venue for post convention dining!
Excellent food and fantastic menu. Very much enjoyed the whole experience.
Great cocktails, relaxed atmosphere and good food and service. Recommended.
Goat. Good. Beer. Good. Service. Good.
I visited with my sister on the 20th June as a celebration for my birthday. The restaurant area upstairs is small and cosy and makes for a very personal dining experience with a great ambience. We opted for the main a la carte menu. There were approximately 5 choices over all 3 courses and everything sounded appealing. It goes to show great chefs can feel confident in offering a small superbly balanced menu. We both had 3 courses consisting of the seabass ceviche and the lamb rump and honey cake to name a few. All details of the dishes were sublime and came out in a timely manner after each course was finished. The service was lovely. Not intrusive but always there if we needed anything. We weren't made to feel rushed and honestly had such a great evening. My sincere thanks to the chefs! This was our first visit and we shall certainly be back. Thanks so much!
A superb evening!
Very good quality of food and drink. Lovely staff world highly recommend
