We decided on a very last minute honeymoon and was ringing around numerous restaurants to celebrate our last night in the Peak District. Luckily, the lighthouse kindly accommodated us despite being fully booked. We had the 8 course taster menu as we couldn't decide on just one dish and it was mind blowing from start to finish. The scallops and... More

Had a fabulous birthday meal here last Saturday with family. We will certainly be returning, after trying the 8 course taster menu there are so many dishes we want to come back and have again. The best place we've found to eat in the Ashbourne area, and we will recommend to others. Thank you for a fabulous experience!

We tried the tasting menu for dinner. Absolutely stunning food and great service. The reason for four stars, not five, is that several courses were served in bowls, which was annoying and impractical (difficult to eat from and nowhere to lay your knife and fork once you've finished), as well as feeling a bit gimmicky. If they switched to proper... More

Love dining here, it is a must try for anyone. The food is exquisite and blows us away every time. It is certainly a special place to dine and worth every penny for any special occasion.

I took my wife for a surprise birthday meal on the 5/7/14, and from start to finish the service at this restaurant is the best I've experienced. Staff are very friendly, knowledgeable about the food and cannot do enough for you. The food is ordered in fresh every day, and the ingredients are top quality. We had the 7 course... More

This restaurant is wow 😊 We ate here on Friday night after a friend recommended it to my husband We were blown away by the place. The owner and head chef, Jon has created a lovely contemporary relaxed environment. With an open view to the kitchen you don't always get a relaxed feel to a restaurant, you can hear the... More

We found this little gem when looking for wedding reception venues. We had a meal here to sample the food and it was the best steak i've ever had! All of the food is incredible, perfectly cooked and presented beautifully. You get lovely little canapes and palate cleansers. It's very fairly priced. The staff couldn't be more friendly or helpful.... More

We were recommended The Lighthouse a couple of years ago but only recently got round to trying it. Having moved to Staffs from Derby five years, we've been searching for some proper fine dining as opposed to the usual alleged "gastro-pub". Without going into too much detail, the food, service and ambience is superb - if it was down to... More

if you love your food then i would recommend this place! do call ahead to see what menu they are offering because we arrived not knowing that it was only a £50 taster menu that night. it was well worth all the amazing different flavours and top marks to the chef for his unique imaginative combinations for each of his...
