This was my first visit to The Palfrey and I booked on a friend's recommendation. We had a mixture of dishes from the menu and they were all absolutely exquisite. The food was piping hot and full of flavour. I'm booking to come again in a couple of weeks and I I'll definitely recommend The Palfrey to friends and work colleagues.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The food and service were excellent. One minor quibble. Although we completely appreciate the need to turn tables over quickly, we think 2 hours would be more reasonable for 3 courses. We were checking our watches from the main course onwards ! We’ll still be back .

The food was absolutely incredible, definitely the best place for food in Derby. The atmosphere was also fantastic, the only thing that let it down was the waiting staff. It was a valentines day meal and the service was dreadful, I had to ask for table water 4 times, the cocktails I ordered 3 times, the dessert menu twice and the bill twice. All in all, I was left totally satisfied on the food front, but the lack of care from the waiting staff will most likely mean I would not return.

Excellent value for money, we had the set three course menu on a Thursday night, as well as 2-for-10 cocktails. Worked out at £61 for two three course meals and two cocktails each, which is great value. The mussels were lovely, and the steak was tender and very well cooked. Good vegetarian options too, and a very cosy feel and nice atmosphere.

Although the food was of a high standard, I didn't think the dishes had the same 'wow' factor as when I went in the summer. Will be going back again though.

Another really lovely night. Staff were ace. Took the in-laws and they loved it too. I do think portions could be ever so slightly larger but food was very good.
