I have been to Bakewell quite a few times and had a few good meals but this was a gem. we found the venue by accident at first walked past it. At lunch time we went back and chose from the lunch menu, I had a taster plate which consisted of bread, hummus, baba ganoush, vine leaves, falafel etc delicious, Cajun chicken with roasted peppers and onions then panna cotta everything was beautifully prepared and served. Excellent value for money - we will return.

We had a terrific lunch here yesterday. I had lovely rich and tasty tomato and pepper soup with warm fresh bread. My husband had creamed mushrooms on toast with the most delicious sauce. My main of skirt steak and chips was one of the best steaks I've had anywhere. It was delicious and so tender. The chips were perfect, crisp on the outside and fluffy inside. The meatballs and pasta was also delicious. We would have loved to sample the puddings but were completely full up. The service was great; very warm, friendly and efficient. The building has a nice ambience too, smart and modern without being in the least bit stuffy We immediately booked to go back this weekend.

Add in great service as well, and you have a winner here.

The food was very, very tasty, and the portions are huge (little warning, the sharer starter almost filled the both of us, it is plenty for 4 people).

Service was great, with each member of staff going that extra step to have a conversation and a laugh with us.

Would highly recommend and visit again if back in Bakewell.

Following a recommendation by the B&B owner we turned up on a Friday night to be told the restaurant was fully booked, however the friendly waitress found us a table as we were fairly early. There was a good choice of food/prices, the food arrived quickly and was delicious. The waitresses were friendly and attentive, no complaints and we thought good value for money.
