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?
Lovely food and great service, very friendly staff
To be really honest we appreciate you going out your way and cooking the veg sausage for our daughter had a fantastic family lunch and my wife enjoyed her birthday there,,, if I was going to criticise anything I think when you go out for a Sunday lunch I think you need more vegetables On your plate that’s the only negative point I have,,,,,,we will be back thank you
Excellent quality food, staff friendly and helpful. Bill was less than we expected given the quality.
From the initial greeting to the final farewell the staff were friendly and attentive with a good knowledge of the menu. Food is excellent and being able to see the chef working meticulously to prepare each dish adds a little flair to the relaxed dining.
We had a lovely meal with great service. It was very quiet when we visited so it lacked atmosphere but that wouldn't be a problem when busier. Would definitely go again.
Lovely meal, could have done with another choice of potatoes and larger portions of vegetables. Great service and beautiful decor
Fantastic service, food and atmosphere, a new favourite!
Absolutely fabulous lunch with fantastic service from Tom. It was our first visit to The Palfrey & we thoroughly enjoyed it. Food was top notch & the atmosphere most pleasant and relaxing. Thank you for one of the best dining experiences we have had.
I’m not great with words but everything about this place is supercalifradulisticexpiallidocious 👌👌👌
Went for first time on a friday night with friends for a birthday meal the staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is well set out and very clean. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend. Thank you all at the Palfrey
My friends and I really enjoyed our lunch. The food and service were excellent and we loved the way both floors had been decorated. It was a shame there weren’t more customers to improve the atmosphere but maybe that was because it was lunchtime. I would certainly recommend it to other friends and expect to revisit.
Great food and attentive service from the staff. Slightly expensive, but you pay for a quieter, more personal experience you wouldn't get in many other Derby City Centre locations.
Very attentive staff, well mannered. Only negative was time it took to to get the bill when we were ready at the end. Lovely food and great atmosphere l, also excellent look and design.
