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?
One of the best Sunday lunches I’ve had and I’ve had a few!! Amazing!!
Lovely food and can’t believe how good value the set menu was
Great Sunday lunch, beautifully cooked and good service. We will 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.
Lovely meal and friendly staff
Came here for Valentines and thought the food was fantastic! Would thoroughly recommend.
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.
First time dining with you. Beautiful food and attentive staff. Definitely a place we’ll return to.
Very accommodating staff, lovely atmosphere, wonderful service and incredible food!
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.
Lovely pub were the staff are really pleasant and happy to help you.
Always a warm smily welcome aswell as fabulous cocktails and great food. Thank you!
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.
Was a fantastic evening, lots of effort put in a o make it enjoyable for myself and the guests.

Lovely ambience and atmosphere. Customer service was second to none. Food was incredibly delicious! Would highly recommend!
Great staff who gave us a warm welcome. Good quality food at a reasonable price. Really good place for lunch.
Waiting staff where absolutely superb. Couldn't praise them higher. Food was amazing also. The team there are a credit to the venue.
Beautiful food and lovely service
Great service, excellent food and really nice atmosphere. Shame I don't live in Derby anymore otherwise I'd be visiting more often. Thanks for a lovely evening.
The nicest place in Derby by far, some of the Best tasting food I have eaten in my 38 years. Well worth a vist, derby hidden gem!
Lovely evening, good food and friendly staff.
We booked The Palfrey for our Christmas meal and I am so glad we did! The food and drinks were delicious, the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and the staff were brilliant. I will definitely be booking again in the future!
Perfect night, we were a little concerned when we arrived and saw it was just the Christmas menu but WOW so good, and those Christmas cocktails.... amazing!!
