Le Mistral

Wirksworth, Derbyshire Dales
10/12/2018: Average quality food pretending to be better than it is accompanied by slow and indifferent service. I won't be returning.
26/11/2018: It’s a while since we’ve eaten at Le Mistral but I’m sad to say this establishment seems to have lost its once unique French charm, which is a huge shame. A brusk lunchtime ‘welcome’ by a senior member of staff didn’t set the scene and what could only be described as the worst omlet ever (even my hubby can do better than this poor effort) was a huge disappointment. Come on guys, were paying your wages so a nice warm welcome would be nice, as would a return to that little bit of France in the middle of Wirksworth.


Madame Waffle

Carholme, Lincoln
17/12/2018: First class lunch. Great atmosphere. Great staff.
15/12/2018: First visit here and really looked forward to this as a treat for my birthday today. Unfortunately it was busy and we were sat downstairs in a dark cellar on a chair where both my wife and I facing a brick wall and under what looked and smelt to me like the sewage pipes 3 inches above our head. Don’t get me wrong it was very quirky but the smell was too much. When we asked to me moved we were told they had a table available but as it sat 4 they couldn’t give it to us. This to me is not customer service and as a business owner myself I would


Tom Browns Brasserie

Lowdham, Newark and Sherwood
01/12/2018: The place is lovely and the staff were very nice, unfortunately the Christmas Tea was not quite up to the standard I would have expected for a place like this, the sandwiches on white bread were large when should have been finger sized on thick sliced bread that was soggy on one side also the smoked salmon came out on ryvitas that looked as if they had been broken in half , also the pots of tea we had were luke warm, to be fair to the staff they changed the tea and it came back nice and hot. The afternoon tea came out on a lovely picnic table and looked very festive, but felt it was style over substance, saying this the cooked meals that came out looked beautiful , I would definitely revisit this restaurant but have the cooked meals and not the afternoon tea.
29/11/2018: First visit to Tom Browns to sample the Chateaubriand Steak and we were not disappointed! Lovely presentation, very nice food and I think we will definitely be going back for more! Very friendly and helpful staff, nice relaxed dining atmosphere, pleasant décor - what more do you need? Shared a dessert despite feeling pretty full (rude not too) and it was delicious. (Cherry & Amaretto cheesecake). Yummy!


Cafe Impromptu

Ashbourne South, Derbyshire Dales
27/11/2018: called in on a wet cold afternoon,2 gentlemen was running waiter duties and barrista .Quite possibly one of the best banana milk shakes going, steak and omelette both cooked to perfection. On tab hanging its seems like the two gentlemen are standing in for the owners. They was truly a credit to the place. really enjoyed it.
15/11/2018: £4.50 for 2 boiled eggs with 2 pieces of plastic white bread (already buttered) is excessive I think. The eggs were cooked perfectly but still doesn't justify price and the bread is cheap, plastic stuff - horrid!


Le Bistrot Pierre

Arboretum, Derby, <20£
03/12/2018: A busy vibrant restaurant with the food unfortunately not able to match. Cold starters, wrong food served and steak tough and even when pointed out it was ‘blue’ rather than medium-rare a sorry was a good as it got. It just feels like a lot of money for average food, could have been lovely just too busy to keep up the standard required staff were pleasant but sometimes you need that little extra. Will be going back to the Greenman in Ashbourne in future.
02/12/2018: Booked to go here for the Christmas Party meal with friends. We got there on time but had to wait as the table wasn't ready but to be fair we only waited a minute or so. Sat down and straight away was asked what drinks we wanted, errr not even taken our coats off, asked the waitress if she could give us 5 minutes so we could look at the wine menu, which she did. Then we came to the food menu, we all wanted the Turkey for the main meal only to be told they had ran out! This was extremely disappointing as it was only 7.45pm in the evening, how could this happen? They are running a restaurant business, selling a Christmas menu where they know people are going to ask for Turkey! We then had to choose an alternative which took time and felt uncomfortable with the waitress waiting over us with no smile etc etc. Have to say when the food did arrive it was all beautiful, however the customer service could be seriously improved. Would I return? Based on the customer service I'm afraid no I wouldn't.



Trent, Rushcliffe
14/10/2018: I attended a private function and the food was particularly good - excellent value. The place hasn’t changed in years, same ‘homely’ decor, same excellent food at reasonable prices.
05/10/2018: Ashmores me lo recomendó mi amiga Pat, que había celebrado una maravillosa celebración familiar en el restaurante.


The Gate Inn

Sutton, Bassetlaw, 20-30£
26/12/2018: A lovely cosy little bar with a bigger area for serving food. There is a specials board and the carvery to choose from. We all opted for the carvery and everything was very tasty. The desserts are heaven and the coffees were nice although very small. There was a slight mixup over the bill total, in my favour but i pointed out we had not been charged for the desserts or coffees and it was quickly rectified, other than that this is a lovely place id easily recommend to all.
24/12/2018: Everything excellent. Food is wonderful (although the cottage pie a little dry), owners and staff friendly and helpful, decor and surroundings though unusual are brilliant. Would highly recommend and will return.


Le Bistrot Pierre

Castle, Leicester, <20£
18/12/2018: Came here for a pre Christmas get together with friends. As we were a party of 6 we preordered our meals from the Christmas party menu.
17/12/2018: I went here for a christmas meal. We had pre ordered our food and waited nearly an hour for our starters! There was a service charge added on to the bill which I refused to pay due to the poor service. The food was good when it arrived but my main course was lukewarm.


Le Bistrot Pierre

St Ann's, Nottingham, <20£
18/12/2018: Went to Pierre's for works Christmas meal. Meal was pre-booked two weeks in advance. I arrived early, was shown to my table then left. Eventually we all gathered & asked for our food & waited & waited. 30mins later we were still waiting, 45 mins later first 2 meals arrived, one was wrong meal. Someone else received the wrong meal too. Little side dishes of vegetables were to be shared among 3 of us but there was only enough for 1 person. Potatoes were only half roasted & only warm not hot. Meat for one person's meal was very tough. Cheeseboard was crap too. Will never go again
17/12/2018: A few years ago this was one of my favourite restaurants, although I haven't been for a while and was excited to have a group Christmas meal planned here one evening last week.


Le Mistral - Wheelergate, Nottingham

Bridge, Nottingham, 30-45£
11/12/2018: We have been here before and found it ok but on this occasion sadly it was not. There was 5 of us in our party and we ordered 2 courses each our main courses took way too long to arrive with people that had ordered after us getting their meal first. I ordered the beef bourguignon and even on first appearance did not look very nice just a bowl full of gravy with mash and beef. To me a main course should be served on a dinner plate not a soup bowl. Upon tasting the food all I could taste was salt I have never tasted anything so salty in my life it was so salty I just could not eat it I was offered another but saw no point as my other friends had different meals all said the same could taste too much salt they even put it in the chips is this not why salt is on the table for our own choice. Even the waitress was trying to argue with us at one point telling us about how everyone’s tastes are different and some people even want it more salty. I was not charged for my meal but I defo won’t be returning here worst food I’ve ever had in my life
29/11/2018: The table we wanted wasn't ready , We waited and waited it was like a slow motion replay , When it was ready we wasn't told , We sat down menus shoved in our faces not told about the specials or the soup of the day , The waitress vanished we kept looking at the girl behind the bar she kept looking in her lap top , We got up and walked out the girl behind the bar raised her eyebrow from her lap top and said " Oh By " We have eaten her before and the food is excellent , But the same uninterested waitress didn't open our £28 bottle of wine at the table brought it to us already open (Not Good ) My Advice is Go to the La Mistral in Sherwood instead a short ride away on the 87 , 88, 89 bus , Better atmosphere and 100 % better service ,


Le Brasserie de la Cour

Buxton Central, High Peak
06/12/2018: We visited Le Brasserie de la Cour earlier this week, an impromptu decision to eat out motivated by a power cut in our village. Although we hadn't booked, the welcome was a warm one and we were provided with a table straight away.
17/11/2018: We visited recently hoping for lunch. We waited by the bar for a while but were ignored so we decided to go round to the restaurant area. It was very busy and again we received no attention so returned to the bar. After waiting around again for a while, we finally managed to get one of the bar staff to speak to us only to be told that the place was closed for a private function! Since we were obviously not part of this function, I wonder no one could have told us this rather sooner! Or how about a sign on the door? Poor customer relations I think.


Cafe Rouge

Rainworth, Newark and Sherwood
18/12/2018: Asked if we could take some food to our lodge as it was raining and we have our dogs with us and a baby so couldn't sit outside. The bloke said he would ask the manager and she said we couldn't take the food away and refused to come talk to me. Even though we had taken food away from here on our last visit to the parc. Very disappointing
11/12/2018: We enjoyed our first drinks and meal in our old favourite, cafe rouge. Great service, value for money. We will be visiting again before Friday!


Bombay Brasserie

Central, Boston
17/11/2018: We ordered a meal for three people , nothing difficult , was told 1 hour 10 mins which I thought was a long time but accepted it , 1 hour 40 later it arrived after a phonecall to chase , only to get told it was all the drivers fault , they are very busy and don't worry it wont happen next time ????
08/11/2018: Enjoyed my meal, onion bhaji, chicken tikka jalfrezi, pilao rice, sag aloo, nan. All freshly cooked and good flavours. This restaurant has my seal of approval. Pleasant staff.


Indian Brasserie

St James, Northampton, 20-30£
24/10/2018: Whenever we are in Northampton in the early evening it has been difficult to pass an opportunity of popping into the Indian Brasserie.
11/10/2018: Took my daughter out to celebrate her birthday, food was fine, service was ok but I was disappointed to discover on payment they weren’t on meerkat 2 for 1 as advertised
