Our Pub

Why Our Pub is Great

Here at The Blue Jay pub in Derby, we pride ourselves on doing things properly. Serving proper food, every day. Providing a genuinely welcoming environment for the whole family. Making sure you get to eat the meal you really want. If you fancy creating your own perfect pub meal, and would like to swap a menu item for something else you prefer, just ask. 

The Blue Jay pub is a great place to bring the whole family. Whether you’re just looking for a quick lunch in the middle of a workday, want a great venue for Nan’s birthday, or need a place to take the children, where they can enjoy themselves in one of our play areas, you’ll find just what you're looking for in our friendly restaurant.

Our traditional carvery is the stuff of local legend: three perfectly-roasted meats, Yorkshires, stuffing, and as many vegetables as you can eat. There’s a vegetarian roast option every day, and you can also choose to have your carvery with a salad. The little ones are looked after too. Our children’s menu is packed with favourites, all as nutritious as they are tasty.

About our food

Our food is full of flavour, created and served by chefs who love what they do. We believe that great tastes should be at the heart of every meal, and we strive to bring you a menu that reflects the preferences of the whole family. From traditional roasts, to more modern options, healthy eaters to vegetarians, there’s plenty on our menu to satisfy everyone.

All of our ingredients are ethically sourced: like our Red Tractor farm-assured chicken and our responsibly-caught cod.
