When we left England for France 18 months ago our last night in England was spent in the Staff of Life, as had many of our Saturday lunchtimes. A couple of weeks ago we needed to spend a two days in Derbyshire for work and pleasure and we, of course, decided to return to one of our favourite haunts - The Staff of Life in Ticknall.
Kaye was as welcoming as ever, the new chef produced some wonderful food on two nights running, that actually was better than a lot of the food we have eaten in France in the last 18 months.
Our room - and we had the lovely room 5 with the four poster - was spotless, proper fresh milk was provided for our morning tea and coffee and we had two very restful and comfortable nights.
If we are ever back in Derbyshire again, the Staff will be where we stay. No question about it.
