Highly recommended, the food and service were 1st class. Nothing was too much trouble but they didn't pester. If you've not been its definitely worth a visit. Not a huge menu but something for everyone.
Excellent food and service. The venison starter was perfect as was the Derbyshire rump steak. My wife loved the crab starter and the Lamb. A good selection of Gluten free options too.
Excellent food especially the tempura broccoli, the whole meal was good value and a high grade of cooking,. friendly helpful staff made the whole evening very enjoyable.
Welcomed with a smile and seated us by the window (as requested upon booking). Catered for our special dietary needs. My partner said it was the best meal he'd ever had. Really good, tasty, quality food. Thank you! : )
Had a lovely meal, the food was absolutely delicious and just the right sized portions when having 3 courses. My husband had the specials, Ham hock terrine starter and Lamb main course followed by Stilton and biscuits. his only comment was that the Stilton could do with being a slightly larger piece. I had the Mushroom and Chestnut granola starter which was very filling and the Venison main course both of which very very tasty. For desert I had the arancini which were like little fried rice balls; I probably wouldn't have picked these had I known what they were but enjoyed them nonetheless, although they were a bit heavy going as a desert. The waitress service was generally good but let down by the drinks service. We waited a long time for service for pre-dinner drinks and were not asked if we wanted wine with out meal. When we asked for wine, were were initially brought the wrong bottle and when the right one was brought out, it was simply plonked on the table with the cap left on. We were left to open and pour our own wine which is not what we expect of a good restaurant. We were served with some delightful little shortbread biscuits with the bill - these were so melting in the mouth that we asked to buy some more to take home as we've never had such beautiful shortbread. All in all a good meal with some room for improvement in the service standards.
The pork belly/rhubarb/pomegranate starter and the chicken breast/gnocchi/roast squash main course were both delicious, having a very nice blend of flavours and textures. The chocolate , parfait was also very tasty, though a bit less memorable. Also the wine was very good, better than the average primitivo. It was a Saturday evening and very full, and the staff were struggling a bit to cope, which meant that when we had an aperitif at the bar they forgot to send the menu down, and the (new) waitress was still learning how to pull a cork (so can't really give it a 6), BUT the waitress apologised at the end for any problems, and we thought there really hadn't been any serious ones, and anyway they all made up for it by their very friendly and otherwise efficient service, with all the courses being served promptly. It was always good, but under the new management it really is excellent.
Best meal out in ages.Allowed to take our time before course and in between. Presentation of food was lovely and enhanced the taste! We had the steak- very juicy and the grilled sea bass. The cardomon soaked pear was delicate and perfectly matched to the honeycomb icecream. The cheese board was generous. Staff were very helpful and attentive. Thank you.
Had the full brekkie, it was real nice. Others in party made different choices and all will return to try something different next time. Waitress service, our waitress was very helpful and made us feel comfortable. Would recommend.
We went for a family birthday and could not fault anything! The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was perfect, really attentive whilst giving you you're space to enjoy your meal. Well be back again soon!
Food excellent as was the service and surroundings. Really good value for money as a bit of a treat. Not rushed at all we were at our table for well over 2 hours.
Very good food. Friendly staff. Excellent for Coeliac (gluten free ). Really enjoyed the meal and good value too. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone but especially those needing gluten free food.
Lovely food. Lovely amotsphere and helpful pleasant staff - we will go again. Price was reasonable and our prosecco was lovely too. It's not big inside but you don't feel squashed either.

Beautiful food, cakes to die for, excellent friendly service. Can't fault anything! Wonderful. Great decor. Good value for money. Will be visiting again and telling everybody about it! Thank you
Nice food but cheap Xmas crackers and no coffee or mince pies on a set meal... Barmaid had no experience couldn't make simple drinks and used the same glass when returning for a refil.. Expected a little better from a resturant of this caliber
Every course was superb, staff ever so friendly , lovely surroundings and atmosphere Would highly recommend this bistro . Probably the best meal we have had in Chesterfield !!!!
Lovely place, friendly and accomdating staff. Delicious food which is beautifully presented. Would definitely recommend a visit for brunch, afternoon tea or anytime. Will be returning
Had a really lovely time with friends celebrating a birthday afternoon tea. Food and service was very good.Nothing too much trouble and worth the cost.
Lovely, I love having food that I know I could never create and cook myself at home. Great relaxed atmosphere, we enjoyed the whole evening
Small restaurant but spacious for dining - not crammed with tables to make you feel squashed in. Delicious well cooked food. Friendly staff. Lovely experience.
Despite it being full, service and food were excellent The starter was very well balanced as was the main course accompanied by an excellent Pinot noir
Had a nice lunch with a friend. We were both greeted when we arrived by friendly staff and seated promptly. Food and coffee was good.
Good food, wine and service. There were interesting accompanying items to the food but not too fussy. We will definitely go again and encourage friends.
