Food order taken and starters delivered quickly, most drinks were OK but the jug of Sangria was a bit odd, it had Vodka in it? Mains took a while to arrive but... More

The food , service and portions were extremely excellent. Wonderful atmosphere, some places I've been to the staff have pestered diners but at lone star they check to make sure everything is to your satisfaction then leave you alone to enjoy your meal. The food is absolutely delicious , I was going to have a dessert but would not have... More

Wish we had realised how big the portions here were. 3 of us could easily have shared one meal!! Hate to see food wasted but we could not manage all we ordered. Some restaurants offer a small and large portion, and this restaurant would benefit from doing this. The problem with offering so much for a main course is that... More

We called in with our two girls for a spot of on spec lunch prior to a show at the opera house based on the pictures on trip advisor. We were not disappointed! Although the restaurant was all bit empty on arrival, we are glad we arrived when we did as it got incredibly busy during our lunch. I opted... More

I went to LoneStar to say farewell to a colleague who was retiring from work. There were 8 in the party. A colleague had booked the table and we were shown straight there on arrival. I had never visited this venue and Buxton is quite a journey. But it was worth it! What a lively, fun and modern venue. All... More

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and thought we give it a go for lunch on a damp and dreary day in Buxton. The reason being that the Lone Star name reminded us of the restaurant we frequented back in the day in Gloucester Road, London, The Texas Lone Star. We were not disappointed here either; the restaurant was clean and... More

We visited last Sunday evening , we didn't book but just called in . We should have it was really busy and we almost didn't get a table but they were good enough to squeeze us in . We soon warned to the Fantastic atmosphere and reasonably priced drinks/ cocktails. Neither my husband or I fancied a starter so went... More
