My boyfriend and I came across the Charles Cotton Hotel during the first night our of mini-break in the Peaks. As soon as we walked into the bar, the staff were very welcoming and accommodating. We hadn't booked (as had been advised) so we were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves immediately seated at a lovely little table. Drinks came within minutes and the waiters were very helpful when decided what to order. We thoroughly enjoyed all courses - for the main my boyfriend had the steak, which he loved, and I had the salmon which I would definitely recommend. To top it all off, the food wasn't too expensive and seeing as we cleaned our plates (all three courses!) it was definitely good value for money. In true testimony to how great this place was, we came back here for the second and last night of our stay (we booked this time), and impressively, everything was even better on the second night - both food and service! There had been slight changes made to the menu which definitely worked in our favour - the tomato and red pepper soup and goats cheese tart went down a treat, and were some of the best starters we've ever had. We ordered the same mains as the night before which were once again absolutely scrumptious. The best course for me however was dessert - brownie with white chocolate sauce. I would definitely recommend this to all those who visit - you're missing out if you don't have it.
Overall, a fantastic experience and absolutely amazing food. We will definitely be returning, and would highly recommend to anyone. Best place to eat in Hartington.
