Extensive refurbishment of the former New Inn on Hopping Hill (car park on Derby Road/A6) has been taking place for the past 6 months. Passers by will have noticed the sand blasting and removal of old signage etc. to reveal the beautiful golden millstone of the original structure, and the tidying up and tarmacking of the car park.
The inside has been extensively and tastefully remodelled, as can be seen in the photos below.
The premises finally reopened, with a new name, The Palfrey, on 4th December. Head Chef Daniel Cain & General Manager Tom Dempsey produced the following biography for the opening: “The Palfrey At Milford is our new home. Our original restaurant started in Derby City centre in 2016. In this original space from 2016 to 2021 we won in the Derby food and drinks awards multiple times, winning best bar twice and also the best restaurant award and the outstanding achievement award. After 5 years in the city centre it was time to relocate and the New Inn was the perfect place for us! We bring experience in devising seasonal menus and using local produce & suppliers and to give you a warm welcome every time you walk though our doors.” More information and booking details can be found here.
