“Excellent Service”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

The restaurant was clean and quite busy but there wasn't a wait. I ordered steak was slightly overcooked but tasty nonetheless, oreo cookie pie for dessert was delicious and would recommend. The service from Laura was excellent, very friendly and attentive. Some of other staff did not seem too happy to be there.

“What a disappointment to what used to be food place to eat”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Haven't been for ages used to be a really busy place we'll run by the 2 guys who were the managers and used to chat to customers on a regular basis. no longer the case, went on Thursday 14 august, plenty of empty tables, no queue to reserve a table or wait for one, the manager said just sit anywhere.
Should have known it wasn't going to be great, when as you reading the menu you can hear the staff moaning( in particular the older one called pat) only for the young girl trying to do her best would have been time to cut the chase and leave.
Food was ok, not as food as used as previous occasions but then In the past not had to continuously here staff moan about people coming in expecting to be served and then being abrupt when "telling" the young staff whAt to do and I do mean telling, not guiding or directing
Despite having been a regular for many years, won't be a place come back to unless Derek is back running the place

“"A pleasant lunchtime session"”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Arranged to meet an old friend at the Derby Lodge for lunch today. Everything lived up to expectations, friendly staff, good food and a reasonably priced drinkablw wine. The only downside was the real ale. Of the two advertised, Doom was not available and the Summer was cloudy and too cold. If you're going to sell it, get it right!

“Awful”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Do not go here if it is for food. Took my mum for a birthday lunch and sat in the garden as it was sunny. Ordered a sharing platter to start and a burger each for our main. All the food arrived at once and when we explained that we wanted our sharing platter to start we was told "you are not in a restaurant - this is how your food is served in the garden" we asked the member of staff to take the burgers back to the kitchen and bring us a refund or fresh ones when we had ate our starter.30+ minutes later the same burgers were brought back to us - we asked the staff member if they was the same burgers to which he replied yes - and thought this was completely normal. We asked again for fresh ones and 5 minutes he arrived holding the same plates saying "sorry when I said these weren't fresh, they are" he was lying to us - there was nothing fresh about them. After explaining ourselves to another two staff members we finally got fresh meals but by this time we did not even want them. Attitude out of the manager was no better - was not interested inthe poor service and attitude we had received. Waste of £50 don't waste your money or time!!!!!

“Could be so much more, truly terrible! ”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Had a family birthday meal here and have to say it's the worst food I've eaten in years. Probably since the late 80s have I had to endure such slop, solely reliant on dissolved taste buds and tomato sauce! DO NOT GO HERE IF ITS FOR FOOD! Staff OK but seem used to disappointed customers. The real shame is the venue itself is quite spectacular and could be so much more, why they peddle the lowest type of food is beyond me!
