Harden's survey result
“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.
Susan & Max Fischer’s well-known venture occupies a Edwardian property built in the style of a 17th-century manor and has a sizeable fan club for Rupert Rowley’s very “consistent quality” of cuisine, “unobtrusive and slick service” and “very relaxing” style.
“By far the best restaurant in Derbyshire / South Yorkshire” – Susan & Max Fischer’s well-established destination in an Edwardian house built in the style of a 17th-century manor has “maintained high standards over decades” and if anything “upped its game of late”, with meals at the “exceptional Kitchen Tasting Bench” inspiring particularly enthusiastic reports.
Susan & Max Fischer’s longstanding temple of gastronomy (est. 1989) occupies an Edwardian house built in the style of a 17th-century manor. Quibbles are raised by a few reporters – its elegance can at times seem “faded”, and “both food and service show the occasional blip”; for the most part, however, reports are of the “top-quality, well-balanced cuisine and first-class service one might expect from a long-serving Michelin-starred establishment” (the tyre men’s only award in the country), and fans say “it’s less overbearing than some rivals, with an unhurried style and lovely gardens for a post-lunch stroll”.
