As good as ever and that's pretty damned good. Mix of ages, mix of tastes and mix of pernickertiness all catered for with good humor by the excellent staff. Not cheap but there are plenty of cheap places in Buxton with correspondingly cheap standards. This place is the best restaurant in the town.

Visited with friends after reading reviews and we're not disappointed. Food and service both faultless and nothing was too much trouble. The young waitresses were a credit to them

Me and my partner went for a lovely meal to celebrate his birthday at the end of January. When we first arrived it was very quiet and peaceful, our drinks order was taken quickly and the food arrived not long after. The food and wine were incredible, I had one of the seafood specials which I can honestly say was... More

My wife and I have eaten at Columbine for over 20 years, and it was great to celebrate Kim and Steve's 20th anniversary at the end of last year. We've visited four times since November and had the excellent meals and service we have come to expect each time. I have too many favourites to list, and possibly can be... More

We booked this restaurant in Buxton due to the good reviews and we weren't disappointed. The corn beef starter was delicious as was the roast dinner. The lamb being our choice of meat. The owner made us very welcome and as we don't know the area very well, provided us with a lot of local knowledge. If we lived closer... More

My wife and I dined at Columbine last night. I wanted a venue 'a cut above the rest' in Buxton as we were celebrating a special occasion. Columbine did not disappoint. The people were lovely, the service was excellent and the food was simply delicious. We had a wonderful evening. I can't fault it. We'll certainly be back.

We've been a number of times for special occasions and with friends and never been let down. We felt cared for. e.g. when coffee came with some hand made sweets that I couldn't eat, they brought some other treats freshly made specially. Quiet, comfortable, intimate and cozy.

I chose Columbine for the location to propose to my girlfriend due to it being an intimate family run restaurant and the reviews which I had read. We were not disappointed. Kim was extremely helpful from the moment I booked and made the experience even more memorable. It felt so much more personal due to he attention to detail on... More

We were a party of 9 and we all enjoyed the food and the service was excellent! If I had any criticism it is only a very small one ! That lighting was too bright!

We have been visiting Columbine over the years and we are never disappointed. We generally meet with friends who are happy to travel the 12 miles to dine here. We have seen a few alterations in our times dining here but they are all for the better. The restaurant is on different levels but we prefer the ground floor although... More
