“Lovely hotel, fantastic food”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We stayed here as a birthday treat for my wife. We have been around and done a few of these type of lovely hotel with restaurant things. We don't consider ourselves foodies but have to say that this one is currently number one for food! The hotel itself is good and the room has good facilities. You really do come for the food though and this place doesn't disappoint. Everything was very good quality and done with some real invention. We will be back to enjoy the food and to explore the beautiful surroundings.

What a wonderful venue for our small Family wedding, despite the "iffy" weather on the day. Right from arriving down a magical winding drive it felt like a place that will last long in the memory. Other members of our family were staying at the Hall so we had a room to prepare before heading across to the main hall for the Marriage and Reception. There were some 40 guests and the Ceremony took place in a room that was just about big enough. Not sure if they have larger rooms for bigger weddings. A lovely Ceremony was followed by photos etc around the steps and grounds, wonderful backdrops. The well trained staff were on hand with "nibbles" before the Reception. This was the first indication of the quality of the food to come. The main meal was the highest quality food I have tasted and was superb. The staff were excellent, and the whole experience fabulous. A privilege to have been there.

Fisher's is wonderful hotel, in the heart of the Peak National Park in Derbyshire. It has excellently appointed rooms and stunning gardens with both the ornamental and kitchen gardens open to guests. As the restaurant was fully booked on both of the evenings we stayed we were only able to sample it at breakfast - which was both tasty and hearty. The usual cooked option being complemented by lighter fare - granola, yoghurt and local honey. The staff were unfailingly helpful and polite and we will definitely stay again

Room Tip: The Garden house rooms are large and airy

A double birthday party with the family, and this certainly didn't disappoint. The rooms in the house have the character you would expect of this old (but not as old as it looks) house. The rooms in the Garden House are more modern and maybe a bit more spacious. The grounds are a bit like a mini Le Manoir and we enjoyed having tea in the garden - until the storm came.

The tasting menu is - like most tasting menus - a bit of a mixture clever ideas that really work and some that don't quite excite, but the journey is an enjoyable one, particularly if you take the accompanying wine choices which, whilst not containing any real surprises, was well-judged. It's great to get fun canapes with pre-dinner drinks - the only reservation I would have is that a canape which is essentially a juice is not really what someone drinking their first glass of champagne or wine of the evening necessarily wants as an accompaniment.. Still, the rest worked well, and were beautifully presented.

The staff all through our stay were efficient attentive and welcoming - but quietly so - to the point where I almost wanted a bit more personality and boldness for a celebration evening. It was a bit like staying in somebody's house when they were away. But this is nit-picking, and this kind of discreet service will suit most people perfectly.

So glad we have this place in Derbyshire.

Spent a special 2 nights at Baslow Hall to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary.

Cannot fault the hotel and restaurant for its service and food. When I booked I mentioned that my wife was pregnant and that we may ask for some flexibility on the tasting menu. We were told that wouldnt be a problem and indeed it wasnt. I though that we might need to remind them when we arrived but they'd already prepared and were happy to consult with my wife about the alternatives available before we sat down to dinner. Lovely touch and nothing was too much trouble. We ate a la carte one night and tasting menu the second. Cooking of a very high standard and although not everything was a hit (herb soup/apple/horseradish/trout combo was a bit strange) that's to be expected with risky cooking. Some complete knock-out dishes though, the quail, pork, seedling veg, raspberry souffle were amazing. I think the quail was one of the best things I have ever eaten.

Our one disappointment was that we went for a dessert sampler on the a la carte which turned out to be the same 3 desserts that were on our menu the next evening. If we'd know we'd have went for something else. Maybe the menu could be clearer about what one is getting rather than just calling it a "Fisher's Sampler".

We stayed in a garden room, modern, spacious, quiet, clean, but the wifi is pretty tempermental.

Gardens were stunning and the place felt homely and intimate without being crowded.

Not cheap, but I'd say it is all well worth it and we had a lovely time.

Room Tip: Garden rooms are modern and spacious and away from the buzz of the restaurant.

We have now stayed here 4 times over a period of about 10 years. Never disappoints. The food remains first class as is the welcome. We usually stay in one of the garden rooms and this year tried rooms 2 on our way up country and 4 on our way back down. Both were lovely, spacious and clean. The garden has developed a lot since our first stay and is glorious. Anyone looking for a touch of England at its best couldn't do better - think of a smaller version of Le Manoir. we loved seeing the young chefs out in the kitchen garden picking the herbs and salads for dinner.

Just a quick trip to Fishers Hotel in Baslow to recharge the batteries.
The food was excellent and the staff were great, the only down side was the dress that some people wore to the evening meal - having looked at the web site and what the hotel said was expected - I was surprised that the staff allowed people in denims to dine.
Small point but if you say smart casual Jacket / Tie then enforce the standard.
