We are an award-winning restaurant with a beautiful waterfront location in Derby. We offer you classic British and European dishes with a modern twist, within a 200-year old former mill building: Darley Abbey Mills.
We also have two outdoor terraces so if you prefer, you can enjoy al-fresco drinks overlooking the River Derwent prior to your dining experience. We’re open for breakfast, lunch and dinner — check our current opening hours.
Darleys creates incredible flavours and stunningly-presented dishes that will delight you, all paired with the perfect wine or cocktail to make your experience complete.

Treat someone special to the Darleys experience with our range of gift options, including vouchers from £20 to £200.
You can enjoy dining or drinking al-fresco on our terrace, while taking in the views of the River Derwent and the surrounding wildlife. It’s a gloriously tranquil spot.
Our building is also special: it’s part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site and is over 200 years old. During the industrial revolution it housed the staff canteen for a thriving cotton mill, and today it continues to be a place to come for delicious food and drink with friends, family and colleagues. Our co-owners are a local father-and-son team, Lee Bebbington and Robert Ellis.
