Bennetts Brasserie

Lisa Jean at Bennetts Brasserie (Derby)

I took my wife to Bennetts for her Birthday breakfast. The restaurant is situated on the balcony of Bennetts department store on Iron Gate Derby.

Decorated in Art Deco style, it's a quirky place where you can see your food being cooked in the open kitchen. The Brasserie is also licensed  to sell alcohol.

We ordered a pot of tea each (£2.45).

We both ordered the Small breakfast (£6.95). You get one sausage, two rashes of bacon, a slice of toast, potato cake, mushrooms, baked beans and eggs "the way you like". I opted for poached eggs and my wife had Scrambled.  You can tell they use good quality produce and the breakfast is perfectly cooked and presented nicely.

We would both describe this as one of the best breakfast spots in Derby. A great place for breakfast, more silver spoon than greasy spoon. The service was great and the staff friendly throughout the store. The only issue is that there is no lift so we carried the pushchair up to the restaurant.
