What a gem Charlie's bistro is! Nestled in the Peak District, we came across Charlie's through TA recommendations and it really was a treat. Food was stunning, restaurant small and intimate and staff were friendly. Would highly recommend visiting Baslow and Charlie's restaurant. Would go back tomorrow if I lived nearer!

There are a lot of Pubs and restaurants offering decent British food these days but Charlie's is a cut above. Perfect for a little treat for dinner. It is very well cooked interesting food not Michelin style, definitely more Jame Oliver than Heston. I had a very good seared scallops on little dollops of rossotto as a starter which was... More

We visited on a Friday night and we chose Charlie's as it was only 3 doors down from our holiday cottage in Baslow. It was a lovely evening from start to finish. It's worth coming for the complimentary homemade olive bread alone! I had rainbow trout with crayfish tails and the other two had a beef Wellington and lamb cutlets... More

We booked in advance because after reading the excellent reviews thought the place might be very busy. However when we arrived just before 1pm there were only a few diners eating so got seated straight away. The Bistro itself is small with a very friendly cozy atmosphere. I had the wild mushroom starter which was amazing and would very highly... More

We luckily booked a table here after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. There wasnt a spare table in the house within 30 mins of us arriving and for good reason. We were greeted by a lovely lady who looked after us and the rest of the guests all by herself and she did a marvellous job. We didnt... More

Disappointed to find our regular restaurant in Bakewell had closed, we returned to Baslow and Charlie's Restaurant which we had passed on previous occasions. We were rewarded with a lovely Sunday lunch at a very reasonable price. Welcoming and attentive staff, varied menu with well-cooked food. Relaxing atmosphere and great music. Will definitely be back - soon and with friends.
