Yesterday - a late wedding, 4.30 p.m. with a drinks/canape reception followed by an evening buffet. The food was good and plentiful. The service took place in the Orangery which was bright and pleasant but not too big. The layout meant that the food was served in an adjacent room, not the reception room, which was ideal and this room... More

To start with I have to say the service from the waitress was fine, she couldn't apologize enough! Party of three, two of us ordered fish, chips and garden peas and one burger. When the meals eventually arrived the fish and chips came with mushy peas! Which for most people wouldn't be a problem, but for me it was! To... More

Service was impecable and the food was out of this world. We would travel the 2.5 hours from home just to eat there again!

On Sunday evening in this area it's more difficult to find somewhere open for dinner, so we thought we'd give the Red Lion a try. First impressions weren't good: when we arrived they said that the tables wouldn't be ready for 15 minutes despite not being busy and having booked: and the drinks glasses were dirty (and had to be...

Had Sunday lunch today - my first visit and I have to say it left a lot to be desired. On the positive side our waitress gave excellent service and we appreciated that. Our food took 45 minutes to arrive after ordering (we checked at 20 mins and were told 6 mins). After the food was delivered the waiter asked... More

Despite there being only 2 or 3 other tables occupied, we waited 40 minutes for our food, and even longer for our drinks. When the food did come, we hardly noticed, there was so little of it. The largest Sunday lunch had only 3 carrots, 1 mange tout and 3 potatoes, the smallest had one inch square piece of broccoli,... More

The bistro has won the Derbyshire Food and Drink Awards Gastro Pub of the Year for the last 3 years and the food definitely lived up to its billing. The staff are friendly and accommodating and the building itself is charming with the bistro in a converted coaching inn but the hotel rooms in a newly constructed adjoining building. We... More

We had dinner and breakfast there as part of our overnight visit to Chattsworth. The food was excellently prepared. Highly recommended.

Family enjoyed Sunday lunch at this very pleasant gastro pub/bistro. £19 for 2 courses gave us some quality food with some friendly and attentive service; eg a minor mistake with food resulted in no charge. Only downsides were wine was a bit expensive for the quality and the pork was a bit on the dry side but fish and chips... More

Have been coming to the Red Lion for the last few years and have noticed that the portion sizes are getting smaller. I don't like enormous piles of food but the desserts especially are tiny. Ordered eton mess. There was literally 2 strawberries cut into sixths with a smudge of cream and a approx half a crushed meringue nest (... More
