Chesterfield Restaurant Highlights
Spanish flair with a local twist

A touch of class
Found within the beautiful Georgian grade II listed Manor House that is Ringwood Hall Hotel, The Coach House offers a superb dining experience. Aptly named, the restaurant was originally the stables, and today the original stone pillars create a special and intimate atmosphere in which to enjoy dinner or one of the hotel’s quality events. Food is beautifully fresh as a wide variety of fruit and vegetables are grown in the hotel’s very own Victorian Kitchen Gardens.
The Red Lion Bar & Bistro at Peak Edge Hotel
All the food is sourced locally but some of the vegetables and herbs at The Red Lion Bar and Bistro are grown on-site. Nestled on the edge of Derbyshire’s Peak District National Park, this family owned restaurant has been awarded 1 rosette from the AA.
Thou shall have a fishy
Award-winning restaurant The Tickled Trout is owned by Chef Chris Mapp and nestled in the idyllic Derbyshire village of Barlow. Fish is popular on the menu and the ‘Day boat fish’ is delivered from Chris’s friend Johnny Godden in Cornwall, so the fish changes to whatever is the ‘catch of the day’, which is served with, mussels, mussel broth, macaroni, garlic, lemon and watercress purée. An evolving specials board also compliments the main menu with dishes including Whitebait, Calamari, Seambream and a delicious Tarte Tatin served with clotted cream and vanilla ice-cream.
