Staff were excellent. Very welcoming and friendly. Good selection of ales, wines and spirits. Much better than it was before reopening. The food was great too. Much more interesting than typical pub grub (see photo). Nice smoking area, dog friendly, close to uni but not populated with students. Very impressed.

Thank Daniel W

Our homemade food was served quickly and the waiting-on staff were very accommodating and professional in their service! The food was a very... More

Had often visited for business meetings and decided to go back after the recent change in management and the re-opening of the pub. Went at 11am as this is when it is advertised to open. Waited with colleagues, as well as three other people outside the pub just before opening. By 11:05 the pub was still closed, a gentleman sat... More

It was a real shame when the Deramore closed last year. So, I was delighted to hear that it had reopened. I brought a visitor there for lunch last week. The pub has a nice range of beers and a full menu. The beer was good, but the food was OK. The fish and chips looked good but I went... More

Lovely afternoon in the sunshine raising money for charity. The atmosphere was great, providing entertainment for the children with a bouncy castle and face painting and live music for the grown ups. The staff were very welcoming and the service and food very good.

5 star! Just back from the Deramore Arms. Husband had liver and onions - can be a little dodgy. Not so! He found it so tasty- only complaint he should have asked for a spoon to scoop up the gravy!. Good unusual veggie choice for me, served quickly and pleasantly. Excellent value Thank you.

Me and my partner visited the Deramore the second week it had reopened last month as we live local and was sad when it closed in August. Our first visit wasn't that great we had to wait a long time for our meals and as we had arranged other plans we had to ask for a refund which was really... More

I visited this pub on a Tuesday lunchtime with 21 colleagues. We had booked ahead and provided our menu choices, choosing a mixture of the £8.95 2 course lunch options and individual items from the main menu. After each getting a drink from the bar, we sat in our reserved area, after one of the barmaids added an extra table... More
