We have just returned from a long weekend at Baslow Hall where we stayed whilst attending a friends wedding. This is most definitely a restaurant with rooms but this is not a review of the hotel.
Dinner at Fischers last night was all in all excellent. We arrived for pre dinner drinks in the lounge and were greeted by the charming maitre de. We sat by the fire and perused the menu and wine list over a gin and tonic and sherry. The menu was circa five starters, five mains with a couple of extra fish options.
We both started with the scallops with avocado and bacon ice cream. We both scored this highly. Mains were one duck and one pork. The duck dish was one of the finest I have had for some time which made up for a rather lacklustre pork which was a touch on the dry side. Puddings of millionnaire shortbread and also a raspberry concoction were fabulous and we both could have gone back for seconds. The acompanying wine was good value and there were certainly many very good options sub-forty pounds.
We would both recommend to others but the setting of the restaurant was not overly impressive and lacked mood and atmosphere. They certainly did not undercharge for the experience.
A good test is would one go back? Maybe…
