“Memorable”
Reviewed 29 October 2012 via mobile

After many years working in the Peak District always wanted to return and eat at the renown Cavendish Hotel.Eric Marsh was and still is well known and his influence on Peak District hospitality has been recognised.
We booked Sunday lunch in the Gallery - excellent value for money. We were made very welcome and comfortable in the lounge. Service was attentive and friendly. Tables were all full in the quite small restaurant and the conservatory restaurant was also busy (and less formal)
We all enjoyed the variety of flavours on the plate for each course - well done Chef. The roast beef melted in the mouth. We all managed to find room for a dessert again flavoursome. We took coffee and petit fours in the lounge before heading home and promising to return.Well done to everyone at The Cavendish.

“Amazingly good. Borderline Michelin Star.”
Reviewed 9 June 2012

Beautiful restaurant at the gorgeous Cavendish hotel. We had begun to dismiss the peak park as a culinary desert with the exception of the excellent Fischers restaurant. After having walked out of our 2nd Peak District restaurant in a week we went to the Gallery on spec. We had to wait for a table but sat in their lovely drawing room next to an open fire and antique grandfather clock while we waited. The food was excellent. Classical French. Borderline Michelin Star. Good wine list very reasonably priced. Lovely views if you can get a table by one of the Georgian sash windows. Service was a little flaky with our waiter mixing up the main courses (Beef vs Lamb) and not realising his error despite being asked. Only when we checked with the delightful head waiter was the mistake confirmed and our plates swapped. Butter was also omitted from the table until we asked. However there was only a 5% service charge! If they can sort out the flaky front of house then I'm sure a Michelin star will be on its way.

“Fine dining in a great location”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

We were a bit worried after reading some previous reviews but were very pleased we decided to dine at The Gallery. Service was friendly and attentive, we had a great table looking out towards Chatsworth Park and the food was sublime. The portions are smallish, but this is fine dining not country pub fare so if quantity rather than quality is your thing then look elsewhere. We had starters of a mushroom risotto and a pastrami salmon - great tastes and presentation. Mains were pork belly and beef - both cooked to perfection. We finished sharing the cheese plate and had eaten plenty. We also enjoyed a very good Sicilian wine which was very reasonably priced. All in all a memorable night out.
