“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

My friend and I visited the Roosters Bar last week, very nearly full, which speaks volumes on a week day. Lovely view of the gardens and with a bit of luck a "beautiful" bride, yes theydo wedding too. The atmosphere is pleasent not too noisy, with pleasent background music, therefore a conversation is easy. The food is good, for me a good variety but not for Vivian as lot of the dishes were spicy so she stuck to good old gammon, which was well cooked.
We really enjoyed our visit and the coffee was good too.

“Always great meal, fast service and plenty of it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Went here again with the family. Have been going here for years. Its very popular so go early if you want a seat. We went on Bank Holiday Monday this week around 5.30 and got a decent table but by 6.30 it was rammed. Still good service though. At least they tell people if there is a long wait for food. We waited about 10 minutes but it was more like 30 mins later on but the staff do tell you when you arrive just in case you want to go elsewhere. Tables for 4 are mainly by the window with a view and the larger tables are inside. Meals are always good, lots of it, decent price and service is quick. Kids meals are decent size also and so my 13 yr old had a meal plus a desert for £9 or so and was really full. Can get a little warm sometimes in there due to the amount of people. Outside there are covered tables with views. Lovely in the summer. Would definitely recommend

“Another great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Probably our 4th visit here in the last 18 months and it delivered to high standards once again! We arrived early to ensure a table (you can't reserve tables) and had another great meal. Good service and great food all at reasonable prices. My only criticism is that the food ordering/bar could do with an additional server and till point to help speed up the process. My tip would be to order food and drinks at the same time - don't make separate trips.

“excellent homemade food and food sourced from local area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

I have been here many times and it has always been a lovely meal with no complains. The food always tastes amazing. All my friends and family like the place, we normally gather at the roosters bar for special occasions. The place is not to posh like people think this should be a definite place to try if your around derby.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

Excellent meal in Roosters Bar, good gluten free choice on menu and staff were helpful and well informed about ingredients. The chilli was very good and a generous portion. Roast chicken with stilton and mushroom sauce (gluten free) was very tasty and salad fresh. Desserts delicious and service good. Friday at 5.45 it was busy but a table was available without having to wait.

A very pleasant start to the weekend.
