All information provided in good faith. However, please do double check details directly with the restaurant, I’ve always tried to state where I’ve seen the offer so you can double check all the details. Terms and conditions apply to all of these – so do check carefully.

The Kedleston

The Kedleston Country House hotel runs an amazing steak night every Tuesday, where premium locally sourced steak including all the trimmings starts at just £10. The sample menu indicates it’s currently a 5oz rump that’s on offer, which admittedly is small (but excellent quality) but to include chips, sauce, onion rings etc, and in the beautiful surroundings, I think it’s a great offer. Read my previous review.

The Kedleston are also offering 10% off their lunch menu throughout October, Tuesday to Saturday 12 – 3pm. (Offer seen on their website).
