Climbing the sweeping staircase to Bennetts Brasserie, you'll find yourself in an elegant, Art Deco-style space that's recently been taken over by talented chef Lisa Jean. The brasserie is perhaps best known for its Champagne breakfasts, but Lisa has extended the opening hours to serve Sunday lunch, too.

We were welcomed by our friendly waiter, John, who gave us recommendations for our main courses. Comfortably seated, we perused the selection of cocktails and fabulous-sounding dishes on the menu whilst enjoying front-row seats watching Lisa and Lee cooking up a storm in the open kitchen.

To start, I had crab and oak-smoked salmon, which came with a crisp, golden potato scone. My partner had the delicious bruschetta topped with mushrooms infused with tarragon. All of the ingredients used are locally sourced, so you know you're enjoying the freshest dishes. For the main course, I chose tender and perfectly cooked Derbyshire chicken breast with buttery greens, potato galette and cider sauce. My partner had rump of lamb with bubble and squeak, roasted vegetables, and rich red wine jus - autumn on a plate. Desserts were, of course, presented beautifully. I indulged in the rich, dark chocolate torte whilst my partner chose a lemon tart that came with fabulous homemade raspberry and Prosecco sorbet. If you can't manage three courses at lunch (fantastically reasonable at just £14.95), there are various light options that make this the ideal venue for any occasion
