The food was brilliant and the staff made us all feel very welcome. We went for a special meal on our last night of our holiday before going home to London and it was well worth it. Recommend the 'Chicken Cacciatora' - delicious! We chose this restaurant after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and everything we read came true. Will certainly visit again when next in Derbyshire.

Very nice food...maybe a bit too much, the portions were huge, but extremely tasty. The staff were all really attentive and friendly, the room was very relaxing and nice to be in even though it was roasting hot outside. It is quite expensive though, but if you like a lot of food and want a treat...

I simply cannot fault this restaurant, the service is friendly, prompt and efficient, the atmosphere warm and welcoming and the food superb.

Amongst our group we had both steak and fish dishes all of them tasted great, were perfectly cooked and clearly contained quality ingredients. Special mention to the amazing Italian roast potatoes. Deserts were equally good.

This restaurant is well worth a visit, I will definitely return.

Really? I'm limited to 5 stars? Ok...well that will have to do, but it's worth more!

It's been a couple of years since I last went (it's not on the doorstep), but decided to go again tonight for a special meal with my wife. It was *perfect*.


I rang up last night for a reservation and the table was efficiently booked.

The bar itself is basic, but welcoming and friendly. However, the moment you step to the restaurant area, it is magical. A comfortable seating area awaits while you have a drink and orders are taken.

The waitress/hostess who greeted us was lovely, friendly, efficient, had an amazing memory for specials, and was hugely enthusiastic about the food and wine providing honest information and recommendations.

The menu was extensive, but despite this my wife really wanted a dish that wasn't listed. Without hesitation, she was offered anything she wanted that they had ingredients for: in moments the exact details of the meal were discussed and agreed.

We were soon shown upstairs to a the pleasant dining area.

Service was exceptional throughout. The meal was authentic, superbly cooked, with a subtle balance of flavours; neither under, nor over seasoned. All three courses were impossible to criticise. What a perfect evening!

While not cheap, the prices are quite in keeping with the area for food of this quality and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone, but particularly for couple or small groups who want an authentic, friendly, quality meal in a relaxed atmosphere. This is as good as it was 2-3 years ago, and I can only see them maintaining these excellent standards for year to come.
