  • “Four of us went for a meal on Wednesday night to try out the new menu and thoroughly enjoyed every part of our evening. There was something for everyone and we each ended up choosing something different; We were all extremely satisfied with our food, the timeliness and the presentation. The young male waiter Jake was informative and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We always find mercia has a relaxed and laid back atmosphere, you always leave feeling chilled and like you have had a mini break! We look forward to visiting again very soon, well done Mercia.”

    Amazing Food, Service & Atmosphere

  • “Visited Wirksworth arts festival on Sunday and visited Mercia for the second time. New menu which looked great, had a great veggie breakfast. Service was really good even though they were very busy. Great gin menu but a bit early in the day so need to visit one evening!!”

  • “We visited on a Tuesday evening and had a lovely meal, (the black pudding starter was amazing). All the staff were attentive and made sure on numerous occasions that we needed nothing else or any drinks refills. We had heard that there had recently been a change in chef and were very pleased with what we found, the steaks were cooked well and the puddings were absolutely gorgeous!”

    Great Food & Friendly Staff
