On Saturday we were passing the hotel and saw Mother's Day lunch being advertised with a free gift for Mum (more of this later...). We booked a table. I do not know a better local destination for a celebration lunch. The restaurant is spacious and elegant and the hotel is in a prime location in Buxton. There was a three... More

My wife and I were on a deal which included a meal for 2 with wine. This made it overall good value. The menu was rather limited and the wine the house. We both had the chicken breast for mains and it was well cooked in a pepper sauce, the starters were unexceptional and I have forgotten them. My wife's... More

Arrived for 2 night stay with my husband on a special 2 night deal. Hotel is lovely-beautiful! Had high expectations for 3 course dinner included in the deal. Was awful! Very limited menu which I am generally happy with,as you think with a small selection ,it will be done well but this was not the case. My choice of duck... More

Breakfast in the Dovedale is a buffet and there is every thing that anyone could possibly want to get you through to lunch time, if not longer. Fruit, ham and cheeses and not forgetting the full English and your toast with a large selection of jams and also coffee machines to give you a selection of coffees. To top this... More

Bottled beer on the pricey side at £4.50 for a bottle of Pedigree. We were impressed with the staff still letting us have our afternoon tea even though we only arrived back from a walk right on 5pm which was the closing time for it. Very nice it was too.

Called in for lunch. Very expensive for quality thats at the lower end of the market. Cold chips! Had to ask for condiments. No children's menu! £9 for a very basic tomato and mozzarello salad.

This is our fourth visit here and we always enjoy eating in this atmospheric decadent restaurant . The portions are not large but it's a case of quality not quantity. It costs around £25/30 for a three course meal The bottles of wine are steep at around £20-25 each but works out cheaper to get a bottle than seperate glasses... More
