From its understated colour scheme to the gracious, smiling staff, this smart, family-owned restaurant exudes confidence. And rightly so. It’s a delightful spot, set in an old mill on a leafy stretch of the river Derwent with a sunny terrace for the warmer months. Well-heeled couples & family parties are welcomed to the comfortable lounge area for homemade crisps & olives before moving up to the light, modern dining room. The earthy nuttiness of butternut squash meets the pungency of Derbyshire blue cheese in a ravioli starter, while the rich sweetness of a brown shrimp risotto suits its simple grilled fillet of trout perfectly at main course. Local meat is also a strong suit here, & a tender duo of Derbyshire lamb delivered on flavour. Dinner is expensive, so it’s worth checking out the lighter lunchtime menu.
