The Red Lion Hotel

Hello and welcome to Umami! 

We are a small, but perfectly formed, restaurant nestled in the heart of Derbyshire in the beautiful historic market town of Wirksworth. You can find us within The Red Lion, now home to three businesses; Umami Restaurant, The Feather Star Pub and The Red Lion Hotel. Our location is available on Google Maps which you can view at the bottom of this page.

   With a strong love of food and travel, we have brought this into our restaurant, with the focus on beautiful, fresh umami-rich dishes for you to enjoy! Pair your meal with some of our fantastic wine, beers or soft drinks as we have a fully licensed bar within the restaurant.

           We are family friendly and can provide children’s dishes for £6 either from the main menu or we are happy to make something a little more bespoke if required, as we know that sometimes simple is best for your little ones. Do call us to ask. 


Join us on Sundays for our Umami Sunday Roasts – with a choice of various roasted meats and a delicious vegan/vegetarian roast with gluten-free options. Adults Meals only £14, children’s meals only £7!  Perfect in our cosy restaurant – totally makes relaxed Sundays a breeze!


In addition to serving food in our restaurant we also have a dedicated separate bar snack menu for The Feather Star Pub, which also is available as a takeaway, see our ‘How to Order’ below for more information. 


Booking is recommended as we are a small restaurant, but walk-ins are welcome and we accommodate you where possible.

Contact us to book your table for lunch or dinner today! 

Best wishes,

Stephen & Maïa

Takeaway/Bar Snack Menu

The Takeaway/Bar Snack Menu changes frequently (and is subject to change depending on demand) and can be found just outside our front door, inside The Feather Star Pub. We can also take a photo of it and text it to you if required. To order a takeaway, please either call / send us a text on 07399 892796 or pop in to the restaurant.
