Description: Rowley’s Restaurant and Bar sits on the edge of the beautiful Chatsworth Estate in the pretty village of Baslow. Our passion is fresh, seasonal food using local ingredients in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. The bar is a great place to meet up with friends, open from 10 am serving Fairtrade coffee. Call in at any time for a glass of wine, hand crafted beer from a local brewery, or join us for a light lunch or an informal dinner. Rowley’s boasts three contemporary dining areas, ideal for lunch, supper or dinner. We will look forward to welcoming you soon.

“This place ROCKS”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

This is our first time here, although we have been to Baslow Hall ,. We have passed this restaurant on many occasions ,we now wish we had called before . We have to say the service was excellent from the moment we entered to the time we left. Ordered drinks what a good selection of gins ,the menu had been tweaked to accomadated vegetarians at the last minute ,nothing was to much trouble. For starters ,French onion soup very thick and wholesome ,chicken liver pâté with a side serving of chucknys and brioche ,for the mains hogit of lamb with salsa Verdi ,on a bed of mash,which I have to say was one of the best pieces of lamb I have tasted in a long time,the other main was Aubergine cannelloni with white beans and a tomatoe salsa which was also cooked to perfection. The total bill was very reasonable considering what we ordered and the drinks. We have to say thank you to ABI and the staff for their very kind attention would we eat here again .?
Why did we have to think about that of course we would . What I can't understand are the poor reviews ,did they eat at the same place ?,it was worth the trip over from Nottingham

“Best burger ever!!!”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

A long overdue review of a wonderful place to eat in Baslow.
We stumbled across it whilst out walking on holiday in Sept 2012. Even though we were in walking attire we were made to feel very welcome and well looked after. The interior was beautiful and all facilities very clean.
Now to the important part the food! I am not exaggerating when I say that the veal burger I ordered not only looked stunning on the plate but it is the best burger I have ever tasted. It was great to see a place that used local produce and clearly takes pride in it's food. Thanks and we will definitely be back

“60th Birthday Party”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

I was invited to celebrate with my Brother-in-law on the occasion of his 60th Birthday. We shared a pre-ordered three course lunch. There was a good selection to choose from. The food was well presented and very tasty.
We were made to feel welcome and enjoyed a coffee while we waited for the family to arrive. We were shown to a pleasant function room for our meal where we were well looked after and made to feel at home.
I can't comment on the value for money as I wasn't told the cost of the meal and i didn't ask, but the quality was certainly very good.

“Menu has been simplified but the food was very good.”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Went to rowleys on Saturday initially was disappointed with the menu as was a little uninspiring however I had the prawn cocktail followed by the rack of lamb for 2 which was a special and the food was delicious. Desert was lemon tart with homemade icecream which was superb. There was also a big birthday party in but the staff were excellent and couldn't fault the service at all.
