“Outstanding Food”

This was my first visit to the restaurant and although we have heard good reviews about the Engine Shed restaurant both myself and our fellow diners were absolutely delighted with the quality and presentation of the meal. The atmosphere and the staff were delightful and I can’t praise the students enough for their attentive service. I would highly recommend to anyone considering visiting the restaurant to do so as you certainly won’t be disappointed. I can’t wait for our next visit. Thank you.

“Perfect ”

What a perfect dining experience. No pretence. No drama, just perfect food and staff learning the trade. A dining experience and staff courtesy unmatched in Derby. Well done all. “Excellent Place to Eat” Excellent Food. Excellent Service. Lovely surroundings. Great Facilities. Highly recommended for all occasions. We’re on Trip advisor and this year they’ve awarded us with a Certificate of Excellence! Read more reviews from our lovely customers
