Amalfi White

Our story

Amalfi White is a two AA Rosette restaurant situated in the beautiful town of Melbourne in South Derbyshire. Founded in 2013 by Adam and Lizzy, a local couple who had a need for good food, good cocktails and a perfect flat white after moving to the Midlands after a London life. Lizzy is from New Zealand so we are serious about the coffee  – and New Zealand wine, dining alfresco and being family friendly (they have 4 children aged between 9 and 5).

The couple embarked on an ambitious renovation of the building which had been built in 1896 and unsympathetically renovated throughout the seventies. Removing a couple of walls and suspended ceilings revealed some beautiful original features including a stunning barrel vaulted ceiling. The scope of the project then doubled to include unveiling the event space on the 1st floor to hold weddings, parties and celebrations – the original use of the building back in the 19th century.

Amalfi White is regarded as one of the leading restaurants for casual lunches, relaxing evening dinners, tapas night Tuesdays, bubbly bottomless prosecco lunches, exquisite Sunday roasts and private events. We also have a delightful family friendly garden. We have a cocktail bar on the ground floor and an event space upstairs with glamorous Ballroom and intimate private bar on the 1st floor.

Our aim is quite simple – to select the very best seasonal ingredients and provide the best quality food and service. With our expertise and passion, we endeavour to create a great atmosphere that will ensure you become one of our regulars!

We look forward to welcoming you to Amalfi White soon.

Building & Garden

Amalfi White is housed in a beautifully restored Victorian building. Built in the 1890’s it was once the home of the Melbourne Liberal Club. The vision was to retain the building as the heart of the village and be a venue for celebrations and special occasions as well as providing excellent food and drink for more relaxed lunches and evening dinners.
