Derby restaurants and events season
The restaurants in Derby can get particularly busy at peak dining times, weekends, holidays and when there are large events on in the city and the wider area. These include Bloodstock, a heavy metal music festival, Hannell's Darley Park Concert, a classical music celebration, Whooverville for Dr Who fans and the Summer Nights film festival, where classic movies are shown in various outdoor locations. If you're hoping to dine at one of Derby's restaurants at a busy period, then remember to book online with Quandoo up to two hours in advance. It takes just a couple of clicks to reserve your table and avoid the need to queue. Equally, if you’re planning to dine at one of Derby's restaurants with a large group, book in advance and let the booking team know if it's for a special occasion. This gives the venue the chance to make your night one to remember!
