Situated in the heart of Derby is Pitcher and Piano, a modern-contemporary restaurant with a British-inspired menu.
Their menu is brimming with British favourites as well as contemporary dishes, from sausages and mash to crispy halloumi burgers and crispy chilli beef salads.
As we walked into this Derby gem we received a warm welcome from both the staff and the cosy interiors, with ambient lighting, comfy seating booths and twinkling fairy lights making for either a romantic night with your other half or a chilled evening with friends. The roof terrace is the perfect getaway for a sunny day with friends over cocktails, hearty food and possible puddings. As you walk up onto the terrace you’ll see a multitude of beautiful plants and vibrant décor, making for that all so pleasant visit and happier atmosphere to be enjoyed with loved ones.
IN Magazine were kindly invited to Pitcher and Piano Derby to see what they had to offer their customers. It was a beautiful summers day in Derby, and so we took the opportunity to soak in the sun from their picturesque roof terrace with a chilled glass of cloudy lemonade, which was wonderfully refreshing on this hot day. Once seated we began to choose our starters, we decided on the deliciously tempting halloumi fries with jalapeños, spring onions and spicy Korean ketchup as well as the peri-peri chicken skewers, juicy and tender, complimented by the subtle garlic mayo.
The halloumi fries were perfectly crisp on the outside and the cheese was soft and warm which just melts in your mouth! After our scrumptious starters we glanced over the mains, with so many mouth-watering choices we struggled to say the least. A good ten minutes later with the help of a friendly member of staff we asked for the BBQ Pork Ribs and the P&P Burger; one bite into the ribs and the pork so tender it just fell off the bone. The burger, 6oz of pure beef accompanied by maple-glazed bacon, lettuce, onions and other tasty flavours!
Both were meat options; however, Pitcher & Piano do have a handful of vegetarian alternatives like the mixed bean tagine, a compilation of colourful vegetables from butternut squash to cauliflower and spinach. If you still have room after your starter and main meal, check out their dessert menu. Whether you are craving an ice cream, brownie, or Eton Mess (with a twist), P&P have it all! Perhaps a hot beverage is the perfect finale to your meal, choose from a range of drink from a classic americano or a mocha – so delicious!
As you can see we had a wonderful time at Pitcher and Piano, where we explored an incredible range of flavours and tastes! We highly recommend that you visit when you are next in Derby centre.
