We were met by Poppy who had had lots of notice of the my dairy allergy. It had been confirmed that this would be no problem. When checking about the dairy allergy she had absolutely no idea really what this entailed and was more unpleasant than anyone I have ever come across. She was just removing things from dishes (lots... More

The menu was different and varied accommodating all tastes. The wine selection was excellent and value for money. Food served with excellent presentation. Overall very nice experience and would definitely... More

We went on New Years Eve - the food and service was brilliant. We could not fault any of it. The special tasting menu was superb. The restaurant was full and the timing between courses was spot on. We didnt feel rushed nor did we feel time was dragging. A bit of back ground music might have added to the... More

We decided to tryI the ten course taster menu for as special family occasion, and not disappointed. If you like quality food, well presented, excellent flavours and reductions, then this is the new place to go. We had a couple of vegetarians in the party and they were accommodated perfectly by staff. The restaurant is bright and airy and warmed... More

We only heard about the Lighthouse via a friend of my wife's, Poppy, so we decided to give it a go. The information was that the restaurant might be difficult to find but, apart from the SatNav almost taking us into someone's drive, it was fine. And once visited the Lighthouse is not forgotten! We are not generally over fond... More

Spent NYE at this upscale restaurant in Derbyshire. What a fantastic experience. Had expectations of disappointment, based on the high price, but all the food was out of this world. This should have a Michelin star, it was that good. Varied and creative courses including local produce. Service excellent. Nice Ambiance. This is a "must do" for a special occasion.

Four of us had lunch here yesterday and the most obvious word to describe the experience would be "Wow!" Old map-makers used to write "Here be dragons" on sparsely-populated areas of land, but I would have to put "Here be very fine food" were I to be invited to map this very rural corner of Derbyshire.
