This well-known Peak District property has been run by Max & Susan Fischer since 1988 and is currently managed by their son Neil, who is credited in reports with keeping standards at least as high under his parents. Watch this space as there are plans to open a champagne bar on the terrace this summer.

“Fischers is almost a by-word for elegant country-house dining in the Peak District”“the food is creative and tasty”, and “a really attentive team looks after you”. “The setting is hugely impressive”, too: “a grand house that still feels warm and friendly”, a short drive from the even more impressive Chatsworth. Top Menu Tip – “they have a fantastic pastry chef” – so leave room for pudding.

Close to Chatsworth House, this well-located country house hotel in the Peak District is currently riding high on the back of winning 4 AA red stars for the quality of its accommodation. On the food front, chef Nathan Wall presides over the delivery of a four-course menu plus a more extensive tasting option, in a dining room overlooking very attractive gardens. Even the least enthusiastic report said the cuisine is “very good” here and staff “attentive”.

“In the Peak District, close to Chatsworth House, Baslow Hall is much more modern than it at first appears up its little hill from the road and – surrounded by a vibrant kitchen garden – it provides a very romantic destination”. Rupert Rowley, chef of 17 years’ standing, upped sticks in early 2019, leaving sous chef James Payne to step into his shoes. Michelin removed their star on the back of the change, but we’ve maintained the survey’s very good ratings, and will reassess next year if necessary.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
