We spotted this through the rain, and decided to try it for a light lunch. Lovely comfortable place, with open fires, and is obviously one of the must-visit places to eat in historic Buxton. We had a good lunch, the spicy tomato soup was lovely and warming, and my husband's sandwiches, with accompanying garnish, including crisps, went down a real treat. The staff were friendly and attentive. It's a most elegant spot in which to spend time. We liked it so much we went back later on for afternoon tea. Next time we're in Buxton we'll go back and try their morning coffee!

Called in on the offchance as the nearby Pavillion was too noisy and busy for my taste.
An elegant little tea room with nice open fires. The bigger snacks around £8 each though some are more expensive.
We just had tea for 2 with cinamon toast and some crumpets with jam and it was £9 total for the two of us. It's about the same price as Costa down the high street, but much nicer surroundings and really pleasant staff.
Love the open coal fires and will certainly visit again in future.

Had a lovely lunch with friends - very cold, wet day outside, but inside this beautifully restored tea rooms log fires were lit and everyone was in good spirits.

The goats cheese and red onion quiche (the daily special) was superb with crispy pastry (no soggy bottoms here!) with lots of both ingredients.

Good service from very young staff made for a pleasant way to spend an hour on a soggy Derbyshire day

I absolutely love No 6. It is a quaint little eatery under the arches across from the Buxton Opera House. Suitable for morning coffee, afternoon tea, brunch & lunch. There is a good sized menu with a specials board and the food is lovely and freshly sourced from local businesses. Although it might be a little bit more expensive compared to others in this area it is well worth a visit if you are in the area. If you are having the afternoon tea I would advise sharing one as my friend and I couldn't manage all ours, or make sure you are really hungry! You can also reserve a table which is helpful when its busy. I love the bell over the door, the teapots and the open fire in the winter.

Great location, but watch the time you spend in here if you have parked on pay and display parking outside.
