2. Piedaniels French restaurant in Bakewell Bath St - DE45
“A good standard is maintained” at Eric & Christiana Piedaniel’s Gallic venture of over 25 years’ standing – a smartly decorated and comfortable venue, which inhabits a high-ceilinged, characterful oak-beamed room and which serves traditional French cuisine that’s “good value”.
3. Fischers at Baslow Hall British, Modern restaurant in Baslow Calver Rd - DE45
“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.
4. The Peacock at Rowsley British, Modern restaurant in Rowsley Bakewell Rd - DE4
An “old manor house hotel with fabulous food”, in the Peak District National Park close to Chatsworth, that has “a slightly old-fashioned feel – i.e. American tourists would love it”. The dining room can seem on the “formal” side, but dishes are “really excellent”. Top Menu Tip – “dessert, a raspberry financier with an apricot and cream, was bloody lovely – couldn’t be improved”.
5. The Devonshire Arms at Beeley British, Modern restaurant in Beeley Devonshire Square - DE4
2022 Review: This “lovely gastropub” on the Duke of Devonshire’s Chatsworth estate gets mostly positive feedback for its “good food and real ales”. There’s sometimes a perception, though, that “it falls short” of its potential: “the cooking was fair, but it could be so nice here”.
6. Rafters at Riverside House British, Modern restaurant in Ashford-in-the-Water Riverside House Hotel, Fennel Street - DE45
“Perhaps better than the parent restaurant in Sheffield?” – Tom Lawson and Alistair Myers opened this 14-bedroom rural hotel just before the first lockdown struck. All reports on it are very upbeat for its “romantic” style and “very good tasting menus with good wine pairings”.
7. Restaurant Lovage by Lee Smith British, Modern restaurant in Bakewell Bath Street - DE45
“Delightful food”, “prepared with love and care”, is on Derbyshire-born chef Lee Smith’s menu at the crowdfunded restaurant he opened three years ago, having quit as head chef at Michelin-starred Samphire on Jersey. There’s a “lovely ambience” in the cleverly modernised historic building, and everything tastes “fresh and delicious”.
