Featured Ashbourne Restaurants
1. Jack Rabbits Sandwiches, cakes, etc restaurant in Ashbourne 10 Saint John Street - DE6
At the back of The Greenman retail and entertainment complex, this stylishly designed venue – with quirky angled roof and steel-and-glass frontage – is worth knowing about as a useful all-day option.
2. The Duncombe Arms British, Modern restaurant in Ellastone Main Rd - DE6
“Away off the beaten track” in North Staffs (near the Peak District), this “gastropub with heart and imagination tries very hard to offer local variety and a happy experience”. Its traditional-with-a-twist cooking comes very highly recommended and the “outside space with lovely views adds to its charm”.
3. The Saracen's Head British, Modern restaurant in Shirley Church Lane - DE6
2021 Review: “Really pleasing food”, “very good service” and a “lovely location” have earned plaudits over many years from the locals for Robin Hunter’s Derby Dales village gastropub, which has recently added the Church Lane Deli to its attractions.
4. The George British, Traditional restaurant in Alstonefield
“With excellent cooking, delightful service and an ambience to die for” – this beautifully restored but unspoilt village gastropub near the peaceful Dove Valley sources most of its ingredients within 15 miles. “Not able to go on a planned trip to France we had a long weekend in the Peak District instead. Relying on Harden’s, after some wandering around the area we finally found The George: completely delightful!”.
5. The Lighthouse Restaurant International restaurant in Ashbourne New Road, Boylestone - DE6
Over a decade on, this fine dining spot “sitting at the back of the Rose and Crown plum in the middle of nowhere” is “a revelation” to some reporters, “trying too hard” for others. The “regularly changing tasting menu” (the only option, coming with or without wine flights) is “getting even better, if anything”.
