After debating which busy restaurant to try while looking at the opposite side of the road we realised we were standing outside Barbarella's. A lady just leaving said there was additional room upstairs and she could recommend the food. Seated upstairs, we found the decor charming - restful and elegant with comfortable squashy sofas at one end and candlelit tables... More

A very clever Wine Bar, Pub area, comfy seating and extremely busy restaurant. It all comes together and so too the customers. Very busy and vibey serving an excellent choice of dishes, try the nachos as a starter and the fish cakes. We loved the place, very select wines and extremely well priced.

Not having been before we didn't realise last sitting was 7:30ish. Booked a table and really glad we had as it was very busy. My first choice unfortunately was not available but I had a lovely steak. My husband had pork belly both were excellent. I had the lemon mess for desert and can recommend it. Next time we will... More

Great eating experience in the centre of Buxton: lavish surroundings, varied choice of tasty and inventive dishes, very friendly staff (to humans and dogs) and a hairdryer and tongs in the ladies for those bad hair moments! Thank you and Well Done to all concerned.

We booked with only a few hours before the four of us wanted to eat on a Friday evening. Really good atmosphere, not too noisy with many locals there (always good sign in a tourist town) and the food was excellent and reasonably priced at four main courses, three deserts and two bottles of good wine for about one hundred...

Had a traditional Sunday lunch I enjoyed the beef and my partner loved the lamb. Both came with a Yorkshire and plenty of fresh vegetables. It was excellent quality and nicely presented and the staff were very helpful too. The only reason I give 4 rather than 5 stars is because of the poor quality cutlery we were given to... More

This was our first visit and on arriving was initially impressed with the decor and extensive menu but that is where it stopped! The waitress was surly and rude, she had an attitude the moment we arrived. Our order for mains was taken, nearly 45 mins later maybe longer the food arrived. My mother's chicken Cesar salad was appalling, little... More
