A rather traditionally decorated country house hotel in the Peak District (dating from 1652, and with gardens bordering the River Derwent) with both a bar and ambitious (if pricey) restaurant, where Dan Smith’s cooking continues to win very solid ratings. There’s a range of menus, running up to a 10-course tasting option.

A small, classy Peak District hotel where Tom Aikens protégé Dan Smith turns out some “excellent” dishes (and where even the most downbeat report noted the cooking’s “clear potential”). There’s also a cosy, more relaxed bar with its own menu.

"Surprisingly excellent food at this old style hotel. Superbly presented and every dish over two evening meals really tasty and original."
