“A better experience, with reservation.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

Decided to give this place another chance having been perhaps twice since our last review in 2007. We last came about 18 months ago and found menu and service not really value for considerable cost. This time, however, things were different. Firstly, the weather was excellent. Very important, I feel, to get decent weather if you are wanting to explore this area as the elements can be rather extreme at times, particularly in winter.
We took advantage of a promotion offer which was 50% off the b&b price ( we chose the large, garden room, now £112.50 for a couple ). These rooms are fine if not the best in the area. The restaurant is what we had really come for, however, and the food did not disappoint us. Scallops for starters, steak and duck for mains, selection of dessert for 2. Top quality for most of this ( desserts have been better in the past ). Unfortunately, the one "fly in the ointment" was the service. VERY poor spoken English from the Eastern Europe waiting staff made any kind of dialogue about the food impossible. They appeared to only know a few scripted sentences and that was it. Breakfast was excellent as was the service from a lady who although sounded foreign spoke pretty fluent English. Check out was smooth.
This is an expensive hotel, even with special offers it is still in the top price sector. However, they have the culinary talent to provide a great dining experience as long as you are prepared to accept the very limited communication available with staff.

We stayed one night and had one dinner. The occasion was my husband's 60th birthday. Fischers turned a memorable event into an occasion. We checked in at 3.00 and went and sat in the garden in the sun and had tea. We strolled around the beautiful grounds and the kitchen garden and sat by the pond. The room was wonderful, tasteful, understated elegance, mullioned windows and brand new bathroom. We had a shower before dinner and after dinner found that we had fresh towels, wow! Dinner was beyond exquisite, from the canapes to the petit fours. Every bite was a new taste sensation - we got to the point of wanting to say stop, we can't take any more pleasure! Breakfast also perfect. We have never eaten at a place with a Michelin star before, now we understand why such places are comparatively rare. This was very expensive, but is worth every penny. We could not fault anything at all.

We had a great experience at Baslow Hall. We stayed in one of the garden rooms, which was very comfortable, especially the beds. The restaurant served delicious, top notch food and had excellent service. The setting was beautiful and relaxing with an extensive garden. Another attraction was the good hiking trails nearby.

We recently went to a wedding at Baslow Hall. We had a garden room which was spacious with a nice view. The evening food was lovely. However, during the evening we put our drinks on a tab which we paid on departure. Our bar bill was presented with a single sum and was surprisingly expensive. We asked for a breakdown of this sum and we were produced with a piece of paper with handwritten notes. One of the members of staff tallied up the bill according to the price list on their computer system and it did not match the bill presented by about £40. Another member of staff went to speak to the bar manager who said the bill was correct as we had been drinking premium spirits (No.10 Gin, for example, although this was not noted on the handwritten notes). We did not ask for premium spirits but that was apparently what was served. The staff member simply told us "that was what you were drinking and our prices are expensive". I would not have minded paying the extra, as long as I was aware; the choice should have really been ours.

This is probably our favorite hotel / restaurant. The hotel sits on a hill in the Peak District. The house is 1920s, but is a Jacobean design. We first visited the place in 1994 and have been back regularly since. The rooms are regularly updated. On our last visit, we stayed in the Haddon room, which had new wall paper and a new, large, well equipped bathroom. The hotel / restaurant is owned by Max & Susan Fischer and they are very much involved in the operation. My wife & I are foodies! The restaurant has one, well deserved, Michelin star. The Head Chef is Rupert Rowley, who has been there since 2002. A new menu is on offer for 2011. The prior one was excellent, but the new one is less intense and is not as focused on reduction. We really enjoyed our meals, including smoked salmon & scrambled eggs for breakfast each morning. The staff is excellent. John, the Maitre D, is professional, very nice and helpful. He knows the menu and the wine list and has excellent suggestions for pairing. The lady who runs reception has been there since 1994. She is gracious and charming. The entire staff makes you feel at home.

Chatsworth House, aka Pemberly for Pride and Prejudice fans, is close by. If you are a runner, you can run from Fischer's through Chatsworth Park and up to the house - gorgeous run, but mind the sheep droppings. Haddon Hall, aka Thornfield Hall to Jane Eyre fans, is only a few miles away. Both are must see.

The dining experience in Fischers is top class. There are so many mouthwatering menu choices it is really difficult to know which one to choose. Add the appetizers and pre-starter compliments of the chef, plus the delightful bread options could - if you're not careful - result in you being too full for any dessert! We stayed on a Sunday evening, when the restaurant is only open to residents. Any thoughts that this would mean a lesser quality of food was very soon dismissed when the appetizers were offered with our pre-dinner drinks. We could have dined on them alone - they were superb. And the meal itself was cooked to perfection. The best meal we've had so far this year. The service is very personable but discreet. Our room - we stayed in one of the garden rooms - was very spacious and comfortable. We would certainly recommend this restuarant for both the food and the accommodation.
