The full makeover will be carried out during the first two weeks of February. The name will come from suggestions in a customer competition.
Darley Mill Centre owner Ross Leventhal, who bought the Grade Two-listed former mill in 2009, said: “Our tea rooms and restaurant are a very popular feature, and customers travel from all over the area – and beyond — to enjoy the traditional home-made food prepared by our chefs.
“The kitchen is being totally renewed and we are giving the restaurant and tearooms a full make-over, including new décor, carpets, curtains and furniture.
“We are also putting a new fireplace in one of the rooms, making it more cosy in the winter months, and the staff will be wearing new-look uniforms.”
He added: “This is a very exciting time for The Darley Mill Centre, and we are very much looking forward to unveiling our new look in just a few weeks' time.
“And, when we do re-open, we will be opening with a new name. We are running a competition to ask our customers to choose a name. The one that we think is most fitting will win a three-course meal for four.”
