Darley Abbey Mills, Haslams Lane, Darley Abbey, Derby, Derbyshire, DE22 1DZ
Find this good restaurant in a former cotton mill overlooking the River Derwent. The dining room is decorated in a sophisticated manner with leather and suede and the decked terrace has splendid views of the river. Making the whole an ideal place for a special occasion.

Chef/proprietor Jonathan Hobson sources as much as he can locally, and his style of cooking doesn’t over-complicated matters – so allows the flavour of each ingredient to shine out.

So expect the likes of ‘Gravadlax of Tuna, Lime Dressing, Pickled Ginger’; ‘Glazed Pork Belly, Apple Purée and a Grain Mustard Rémoulade’ and ‘Sweet Pea Soup with Smoked Haddock Rarebit’ among the starters.

Perhaps to be followed by ‘Rib-Eye of Beef, Onion Tart, Cocotte Potatoes, and Guinness Sauce’; ‘Fillet of Brill with a Peanut Crust, Crushed Spinach Potatoes and a Red Wine Sauce’ or ‘Breast of Free-Range Chicken, Seared Scallops and a Watercress Sauce’.

Finish with ‘Dark Chocolate Tart with Banana Ice Cream’; ‘Raspberry Soufflé with Lime Sorbet’ or ‘Local Cheeses with Chutney and Home-Made Bread’.
