Lovely experience, couldn't do enough for us AND the food was good - what a bonus! All the food was good but the brownie with salted caramel was what dreams are made of.

Went for dinner at The Wonky Table after an impromptu visit to Derby. We sat in the delightful fairy light strewn garden area. Our servers were warm and friendly and the food came out super quickly. We had the pork belly and it was absolutely...delicious. Tender pork with spicy beans, potatoes and chorizo jam. Highly recommended.More

Fabulous food with friendly and helpful staff. Probably the best Slow cooked pork ever. Super soft and succulent meat topped with crunchy crackling on top. Also we enjoyed perfectly cooked medium rare steak, well presented and bold flavours. We Arrived early and ordered refreshing cocktails...out in the garden area. Quirky , fun and a lovely independent restaurant with great food and offering good value. Loved it.More

Absolutely loved our meal at this place. First time we have been, the service was brilliant, the food was amazing and the potions where huge! The atmosphere was great, the menu choice was spot on, and we even received a call before attending to discuss...the menu choice for my Gluten Free wife. We will definitely go back and I would recommend this place to anyone.More

Great food, you must try the pork belly and the black pudding starter, excellent. Attentive service by a manager that knows his stuff. An individual restaurant with great service, a gem in derby.

Saturday evening meal. Food was nice and pleasant waitress service. Tried two of the three house wines (only charged for one) and they were both undrinkable. I’m 66 years old and that’s the first time I’ve ever sent wine back or not finished a glass,...so either a bad night for my taste buds or a new supplier neededMore
