Looking for somewhere nice for a spot of lunch in Derby City Centre?

Here are our top three recommendations:

The BookCafe

For the past decade, the Bookcafe has occupied what was once a bank. It’s a lovely historic setting that that emphasises comfort food and friendly service.
I would recommend trying some of the savoury dishes - such as the pulled pork bao buns or baked sweet potato with homemade harissa spiced mixed beans, yum! Or if you have more of a sweet tooth you must try the pancakes. Their dishes are freshly made and quite often locally sourced.

Hide Burger Bar

Their goal is to serve the best British Burger in Derby – and I think they’ve achieved that goal! There’s plenty on the menu but the focus is definitely perfect burgers. The pattys are made from 100% freshly ground Derbyshire beef, and served in a brioche bun, because that is how it should be!

HIDE Burger Bar is based in Derby’s converted Magistrates Court, now named Riverside Chambers.

The Blacksmiths Lounge

Why not check out The Blacksmiths Lounge in Sadler Gate, Derby City Centre. A perfect venue if you want a cheeky lunchtime glass of wine or cocktail with a delicious charcuterie board! It certainly is a lovely British-European style bistro with a buzzy atmosphere.

If you fancy a later lunch on a Saturday or Sunday, this venue is ideal as there’s often live music across the weekends, as well as some amazing cocktails!
