Our Derby bistrot was the second in our family, opening in 1996 in the city’s social hub on Friargate.

It retains all the charm and intimacy you’d expect from a building that dates back to the 1600’s (as well as some of the ghostly tales you might also expect) but diners needn’t beware, there’ll be no ghostly goings on during your meals, we promise.
