A Bright Future

We are pleased to announce that Derby Brewing Company (owners of the Kedleston Country House) have conducted a full review of The Kedleston and made major changes to ensure that customers have a positive experience with us, every time.

We have welcomed a new general manager at The Kedleson, Stephanie Bolas, alongside new serving staff. This team will be guiding The Kedleston into a bright future with positive leadership, and with the customer at the heart of everything we do.

Stephanie has extensive management experience, specialising in weddings and events. Her previous post was at De Vere Oxford Thames, but she jumped at the opportunity to return to her home in the Midlands and be able to put her own stamp on the Kedleston Country House. ‘I instantly fell in love with the chic vintage style of the Kedleston Country House and couldn’t resist the opportunity to help drive this venue that has such a rich history forward into a bright future. The Kedleston holds a special place in the hearts of many local people and I look forward to welcoming them back to enjoy our events, or hosting their own very soon. I am passionate about establishing our place within the local community and also hope we can increasingly work together with other businesses for mutual benefit.’


While the bar will remain open throughout the week, the weekday restaurant service will be dedicated to private events such as wakes, birthdays and business meetings, alongside a new calendar of events which includes a wide variety of activities to attract all ages, tastes and budgets. The events planned for the Spring and Summer include monthly Classic Car Meets, The Kedleston Book Club, Chelsea Flower Show inspired floral masterclass, Wimbledon Finals Pimms Party, Summer Solstice Ball and Wedding Open Weekends. All details of events can be found here, and on Facebook.

Paul Harris, Director of Derby Brewing Company (owners of The Kedleston) says, “Offering an excellent customer experience is our highest priority and we have worked hard to recruit a strong new management team who will provide pro-active and positive leadership and ensure every member of staff is trained to offer consistently high customer service. We invite you to host your own events, join our planned ones, drop in for a drink or escape for a luxurious overnight escape.”

We look forward to welcoming you very soon.
