We love coffee & lunch at The Larder, but the Tapas is off the charts OUTSTANDING! I've never met a more enthusiastic host than Carl, the lengths he goes to sourcing ingredients, checking their provenance and then creating heavenly dishes with them. His team is charming, there's always a bit of chaos, lots of smiling and laughter - and probably a shot of limoncello somewhere along the way!

Such an amazing place! It felt like stepping into a surreal Asian Narnia - so very beautiful & serene. The selection of food was impressive & the cocktails were delicious! Great service! We were made to feel very special & had a fantastic time. Would thoroughly recommend & look forward to visiting again.

The food was decent depending on what standard it is being judged (Turkish or British will be different ratings). The service was good however for a table for two one set of cutlery was missing and half of the drinks order was forgotten. Time between ordering and being served was Turkish style timing. Overall probably one of the best establishments in Basingstoke centre

We arranged to meet relations at The Derby as it was halfway for travelling. We were very impressed by friendly staff and super service. The food was excellent…….in fact the fish pie was the nicest I have ever eaten! We will definitely use it again.
