We've been going to Shalimar since it opened and it never disappoints. Great food and service. Top staff who can't do enough for you - what more could anyone want?

We've been driving past the Shalimar for years, and have commented many times that we should visit: last night, while staying nearby we finally did. We couldn't have been more pleased: service was excellent, and the food delicious. The menu is broad, and catered to all tastes in our party of seven. The atmosphere was excellent, and staff extremely friendly... More

I needed to be gluten free, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful or 'can do' about it. It was a Sunday night and it was busy and buzzy and... More

Of all the very good restaurants in the Peak District, The Shalimar is surely one of the most satisfying and consistent. We regularly travel from North Lincolnshire to the area and have dined here many times. I am a retired Quality Assurance manager associated with the Refractories Industry, so believe me when I say this place is HOT- in both... More

We had the set meal for 4 which was delicious. The staff were very attentive without being intrusive and the service was slick and professional. It was nice not to be hurried which made for an enjoyable and relaxing evening. (Rupees not accepted)
