I'd love to give The Bless a good rating but it was completely let down by 1 staff member. We had a work Xmas party there and had a lot drop out so they wouldn't do food in the end for us, ok maybe it...More

Large pub on the edge of the city centre. Right next to Deda so convenient for a drink before events there. Quick drink with friends. Reasonable beers and ciders on offer.

Great place. Been coming for years. Prices are good and staff are great. Never had any issues at all. Never seen any trouble either which makes a refreshing change.

£8 for a gin and tonic? Crap ! Extremely rude staff when approached about high prices for a pub! Apparently that’s what everyone charges ? Maybe in cocktail bars not a pub!

I am a regular here and it's probably my favourite place in Derby to come. Out of the way so although you get the crowds on a Friday and Saturday night there is rarely trouble. Good value for money on drinks and top bar staff!...More

Tonight we had Oasis, Kraftwerk, Kasabian, The Human League, The Stone Roses and a lovely mixture of wonderful bangers. Brilliant rave. The Doombar was passible but not value for money, I stayed off the house Red as last year I was so ill. Eventually I...More

Had a really lovely meal here during lunch time with my mum. The food was cooked to perfection and lots of it. Great price and a really nice setting. There was a handful of people in so nice and chilled for lunch time. Lovely smiles...More

Used to be an excellent place and still has an excellent music set up but it's now been overrun by a nasty type of customer looking for trouble. If you want a fight it seems this is now the place to go. Intimidating security guards...More
