About The Rectory

Our British menu takes influence from all four corners of the British Isles, embracing ideas and techniques from Victorian London dining to 70’s retro steak houses, the great British seaside holiday and remote Derbyshire villages where we found long lost family recipes.

Due to the current situation and social distancing measures in place, tables will only be allocated a 2 hour slot per booking. Booked tables will be given up after 15 minutes if none of the party has arrived and we haven't been notified prior.

Waited nearly an hour for food and some of the groups food was cold. Despite national rules for groups of a maximum 6 there was a table near by that had over 10 at the table that I did not think was appropriate, especially as you would not serve a 16 year old alcohol with a meal despite this being legal but you are fine to break the covid rules. I would come to drink here again but will not being having food, it was very mediocre for the time we waited.

The food was of a good standard for a town centre establishment. The waitress was very attentive and pleasant. Service was a little slow but that’s understandable, but we where kept fullY informed about the delay. And would definitely go again

Service very slow almost an hour before food arrived. Then wrong food arrived. Meal was very good when it eventually arrived. Staff very apologetic think they were having a bad night

Some of the menu items need to be explained e.g. BBQ beans didn't include many beans but lots of peppers. Also some portion sizes could be increased as when you order a bucket of chips you expect more than a dozen.

Staff were very welcoming and attentive. Food was absolutely delicious, we both had minted lamb and red wine pie (pie of the day). Offer of lovely desserts, the only downside is that I was too full to finish mine! Great cocktail menu. Considering the current Covid 19 situation, we felt extremely safe to eat in at the restaurant and the staff had clear measures in place when going around the restaurant and in the toilets etc. Would definitely return!!

Fish and chips were not value for money, the fish looked like it had been to weight watchers. The staff were very friendly and upbeat and it felt reasonably COVID safe.

I love the rectory food and drink and service brilliant as ever, sadly due to Covid the pub was virtually empty so marked down a little in atmosphere, but I realise that is outside of your control!!! Great as ever.

Food was awful, chicken chewy and inedible! Wrong meal brought first followed by the correct meal very quickly! Service was slow although the waitress was very polite
