I had a short break at the Isaak Walton recently and was fortunate enough to eat in the restaurant on my final evening. I have eaten in restaurants in five star hotels in the UK, Europe, the USA (including Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas) and Canada. I have never had better food or service than I had on that evening or...

The food here is absolutely superb, we had our meals in the Haddon Restaurant, to begin we had complimentary amuse bouche and a selection of warm, homemade breads with flavoured butters (very nice). My wife had the soup and I had the Mediterranean vegetable terrine for starters. For mains we both had the fillets of Derbyshire beef which were cooked... More

I went to this restaurant some 10 years ago and it was wonderful, oozing quality and service; so when I visited the area again with a friend of mine, I had to make a return visit. I discovered the old hotel had closed for a couple of years before it was bought and reopened a couple of years ago -... More

We dined in the breakfast room of the hotel as the restaurant was fully taken-over for a wedding party. As we were the only diners it was a little like having our own personal service - which was excellent & the food was very good. We went there on a chance recommendation & we were not disappointed.

The dining room is spartan but clean and airy with crisp white tablecloths and silver service. Menu was odd; lots of posh sounding courses but not inspirational. Some selections on the menu were not available. Food very well prepared and presented. Service was friendly but staff did not know the menu and had to keep checking back with the kitchen... More

Dear ChrisMay62. Thankyou for reviewing the Haddon Restaurant. We have had some excellent feedback on the current menu so I am sorry that you did not find it inspirational. The 'aged beef' cheesy taste is something to do with the action of the enzymes but I am afraid the process is a little above me! Your feedback is important to... More

I didn't realise you could review the Restaurant separately. Dine here! Nothing else to say!! Absolutely top notch, great food (We had the lamb - local, I believe and just about the best I've ever tasted) but there was nothing on the menu that you wouldn't have eaten. The service was correct but not too stuffy with very good staff.... More
