The Fischer family bought this stately Edwardian manor on the edge of the Chatsworth estate, 4 miles north of Bakewell, to house their restaurant. Intimate and formal, the place takes real pride in using high-quality local products. All meals are fixed-price, and menus might include wild venison, native fish such as John Dory and Cornish Dover Sole, Derbyshire pork and lamb, and other local ingredients such as Yorkshire rhubarb, all presented with care and aplomb. If you
can't decide, there's a six-course tasting menu of specialty dishes (£80, or £120 with wines). With 11 elegant bedrooms here as well, you might consider staying the night.
