We had dinner at Darley's and it was perfect. The food sublime and the atmosphere very special. The historic home is a pleasure to see on its own and our meals were delightful. Definitely worth the cost as a special occasion venue.

There is a bar but not really big enough to hang out in. More of a waiting area before you are seated.
