Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After nursing 2 broken wrists, I was looking online for Sunday lunch deliveries and came across the clock bistro, I rang up and asked for specifically what I wanted, me not being a big veg eater 1 for myself and 1 for my dad, we...had 1 pork and 1 beef dinner and they both came well presented and hot. There was plenty of gravy, and we both enjoyed our dinners. Followed by sherry trifle and a salted caramel pudding, which was beautiful. I would definitely use this service again, can't wait to actually visit the restaurant to see what else Is on offer. Thanks Clock bistro.More

Yet again another perfect experience at the clock. Me and my wife tried some new starters this time and were lovely, mains came out at a good time, tasted delicious with generous portion size. Atmosphere was lovely with everyone in the christmas spirit. Staff were...attentive with special mention to a brunette waitress (I think i remembered was named Lacy when i asked), knew what she was doing and held friendly conversation. Will 100% be coming again. Thanks again, The Clock BistroMore

What a great night! 9 of us booked for a Xmas get together, we pre ordered the week before, the booking communication was great, and our table was ready for us on time The restaurant was festive and cosy, the staff were attentive, helpful and...speedy We all had starters including the garlic mushrooms which were delicious, the creamy sauce was incredible All of our main courses were well presented, flavoursome and generous A few of us had dessert but most of us were full to the brim! Cocktails were good, parking was right outside, and the bill was good value for the amount we ate Highly recommend this lovely placeMore

Beautifully cooked food in a calm and friendly atmosphere. Ideal for couples or small parties. All staff were helpful, and professional. The chef clearly takes immense pride in their work as the food was perfectly cooked and presented. I look forward to visiting again.

We were having a few days holiday at home and decided to try The Clock Bistro as it is 5 mins from our house. We were not disappointed. Decor and lighting were interesting and well done with frescoes on walls and ceiling. To our delight...the menu was printed in huge font so we could actually read it!!! We were served promptly and the food was freshly cooked and piping hot. The loaded nachos were wonderful with a thick cheesy sauce and guacamole and salsa. Main dishes were beautifully cooked - chicken was juicy and tender and steak was perfection. Loved the basket of sprays and creams in ladies toilets. We will certainly go againMore

Sorry to say that one of our favourite restaurants has down down hill since our last visit. I am now aware that it has changed owners and unfortunately standards aren't as good. Arrived as booking at 7pm with my husband, son and daughter in law...by a very lovely waitress who confessed she knew nothing as it was her first day. No problem with that as she tried to be as helpful as she could. Ordered drinks, Beers were fine and the cocktail but the orange juice tasted like it had been watered down. Ordered main courses with the view to have desserts and waited over 30 minutes to arrive, no problem with that as we were in no rush and my view is that the longer it takes then its probably cooked from fresh. My daughter in law wanted the Paella but didnt want the seafood and asked for a Chicken and Chorizo paella if this was possible. The waitress went away and said that was fine. My husband and sons food came and they really enjoyed it with no problem although did state it was the best they had there. I ordered Steak medium and it came out just as ordered but was very fatty and tough and the sauce on top was very strange tasting which should have been Diane sauce. I didn't complain just blamed myself for ordering steak as i don't normally order steak. Chips were bad, dry hard but the salad was ok. When my daughter in laws Paella came out it had Mussels stuck to the top of it which i aid im sorry but she really cant eat this she asked for Chicken and Chorizo to which the waitress agreed she did in fact order as requested. Food taken away and returned in 5 minutes with just the mussels taken off which was quite clear and was a little off putting to someone who doesn't eat seafood, she did however try and proceed to eat it only to have a fist mouthful which was mussel shell and what seemed to be gritty sand. Called the waitress again who apologised and took the food away and another wait of 25 minutes or so and a very beautiful Chicken and chorizo paella arrived which my daughter in law said was beautiful, so we got there in the end. I might add there was only another 2 couples in the restaurant at the time but maybe they were taking online orders. Sadly by this time it was getting late and we just didnt feel like ordering desserts ad wasnt convinced they would be worthwhile. A sad visit to what was once a very lovely restaurant. Nowadays with the cost of living you want to go out to eat and be sure they are giving you the best they can do but this really didnt happen. I might also add my husband visited the mens room and said that that really needed a little clean and he never usually mentions or bothers about such things. I make this review not really to deter people to go as my hubby and sons food and eventually my daughter in laws food was good but just to highlight to the owners that they need to be aware. Sadly its our last visitMore

We travelled from Chesterfield with friends as we enjoy going further afield at times for a nice meal so after reading the reviews and checking the website we decided on The Clock Bistro. What a great decision! The place is a great find and deserves...to be further up the rankings. We all passed on a starter and went for the mains hoping to have room for a sweet, well that failed, we had more than enough to eat especially as we order a side of Mexican dirty fries, delicious, so unfortunately we never got to the deserts, maybe next time. The Bistro is clean, tidy and well presented, the service was excellent and so was the food, it was faultless. All four of us have no doubt in recommending this great Bistro and it will not be our last visit, it made the trip worth it.More
