Food was fantastic, the staff were friendly and chatty and extremely helpful. I love the rectory, it has a lovely atmosphere and the gin festival was enjoyable!

I was absolutely ecstatic when I arrived on a Sunday 5th May for the do following my daughters christening! The staff are extremely polite and thorough, especially Rebecca and the new assistant manager, the quality of food and the way it was all displayed was outstanding and I couldn’t fault it. The whole team ended the day on a high and I would highly recommend! A thank you card will be coming your way :)

Overall I really like the Rectory, but I found the chicken burger to be very dry and wasn’t presented very well. A fairly large tray made the portion look smaller than it was, a little more lettuce, sauce etc would really help!

This was a return trip for us. Myself and my 8 year old boys love the friendly service and food - especially the bird and the beast roast! The Yorkshire pudding is epic. Even on a busy mothers day the service and food were excellent. I couldn't manage a desert but the boys polished off a Mars bar cheesecake and Toblerone icecream and said it was delicious. We will come back again soon Dawn & the twins x

Bit annoyed that we’d all decided on our food and only on ordering the chicken did the waitress tell us there wasn’t any!! Should have been pointed out when she gave us the menus! Burgers very average - quite dry! Nachos amazing.

We love your pubs, we often visit The Exeter and more recently The Devonshire in Belper. We thought we would try The Rectory for Sunday Lunch as we love your other pubs. My starter was delicious i had the garlic mushrooms. My boyfriend had the squid he said it was very good but he thought he could of had a little more squid. The Sunday roast was delicious, we both had beef. The service was fantastic, staff were very attentive, the pub decor was great, i love that about your pubs its very quirky and stylish. The beer was well kept. I would recommend to eat and drink here. Great food and drink at reasonable prices. The best in Derbyshire. Please open more pubs

The meal was absolutely appalling. The food took 50 minutes to arrive and when it finally did none of us got our meals at the same time, there was at least 5 minutes between each 2-3 people being served there meals. Most of the meals were cold or poorly presented and the waitress then came to try and take plates away whilst others were still eating which is extremely rude. It is a shame is prior to this we had rated the rectory very highly but now won’t be eating there again.

After our work Christmas Party on Friday night, the praise and positive comments I have heard since about you is unbelievable! the food was literally delicious, you were so accommodating and nothing was to much trouble. We cannot thank you enough and would highly recommend.. the only slight thing I'd pick up on, would be the spare area was a little too small for us, however it didn't impact at all on our night. THANKYOU!
