Norbury, Derbyshire Dales
17/02/2018: We came for the winter tasting menu and weren’t disappointed. We had eleven (twelve if you include the treat with the bill) courses of faultless food. The staff were attentive, and gave us all the details of every course very thoroughly. They catered for an allergy very well, making sure that the altered meal was still well balanced and tasty. The drinks were presented well, and the range of gins on offer meant we both had an interesting drink with our meal. The meal was also very reasonably priced considering the quality of the food and service.
17/02/2018: The tasting menu was a whole new experience for us. We weren't quite sure what to expect but we were not disappointed. From the minute we walked through the door, were made to feel welcome by the friendly and courteous staff. They went out of their way to explain in detail every item on the menu and we left with a small chocolate gift. The restaurant is a credit to all the staff concerned in the day to day running of it.


Stones Restaurant

Matlock All Saints, Derbyshire Dales, 45-60£
16/02/2018: Matlock has come a long way since my childhood visits and this modern, stylish and very capable restaurant exemplifies this. For £25 at lunchtime one has great canapés, lovely bread, three very good courses and petit fours (coffee extra but well worth it ). Great cocktail list and a lot of good value wine.
14/02/2018: We went to Stones in the day time for the cheaper menu. Food & service was top notch. The location is great next to the river, sadly the weather wasn’t very good when we went. This place does fine dining very well. You get little canapés to try between course which are a really nice touch. I had the steak for my main which didn’t have the option of getting a sauce with it and it made the steak quite bland. This is the only reason I am not giving this place a 5.


Restaurant Sat Bains

Dunkirk and Lenton, Nottingham, >100£
21/02/2018: Eating in many 1 2 3 star restaurants all over the world. This is the best restaurant in the uk. Creative eating, a chef that's experimental and not afraid to break the rules unlike a lot of chefs these days.
20/02/2018: Amazing! Had the best time with my partner for my birthday surprise. The service is the best I’ve ever experienced! Attentive, friendly wait staff who were polite and gave you space to enjoy your evening. Delicious food and wine! We even got to meet Sat Bains in the kitchen, which was wonderful and completely unexpected! Expensive of course, but if you are happy to pay then it is a great experience.


Ania Polish Restaurant

Sherwood, Nottingham
18/02/2018: 6 of us had a meal here last night and we all enjoyed it. 4 of the 6 were not familiar with polish food and said they would 100% go again. Lovely home cooked authentic dishes at very reasonable prices. The service is fantastic. I will definitely be back and recommend to everyone I know.
09/02/2018: My first experience of Polish food


Rumbletums Café

Cossall and Kimberley, Broxtowe
05/02/2018: Wonderful cafe! Fabulous service!
18/01/2018: Rumbletums is a charity. Its objective is to provide a first step work experience for children on the autistic spectrum. This unique homely cafe' is a pleasure to visit. Drinks, homemade cakes, and snacks or a simple tasty meal all await you, served by children on the autistic spectrum. It's a heartwarming, delightful place. Do visit.


The Jews House Restaurant

Carholme, Lincoln, 30-45£
05/02/2018: We had a family celebratory meal here, for me it was my first visit. It's a very old building in the Cathedral Quarter, so it's a walk up the steep hill which ever end you park so be warned! It aims for high end dining and it did not disappoint. It's a small menu so it's not over complicated, there are both fish and meat dishes to suit all which can be tweaked to match your palette. Staff are very attentive and the owner has a wine knowledge to match any world side buyer. If you can't decide which to chose with your meal, she will match the perfect bottle, and it really does make a difference in the taste experience of both food and drink! The only let down for me (which won't put me off booking again) was being seated upstairs, it was extremely quiet, there was no background noise making for long periods of silence when the conversation had stopped. My other niggle - we had our coats returned to us, as we put them on and made our way to the door, not one member of staff acknowledged or thanks us. That was a bit of a let down, considering the size of our bill! I'll pass that off though, benefit of the doubt and all that.
17/01/2018: I visited for my intimate wedding breakfast (5 of us) and I honestly can not fault it. The food was amazing! The staff were friendly but not fake like you find in a lot of places. They didn’t interfere and when they asked my wife (who could eat much as she was 7 months pregant) if everything was ok, hey didn’t make a big deal of it and just quietly asked her.


John's House Restaurant

Stanford, Rushcliffe
21/02/2018: Great fine dining experience. We had the 3 course meal and the food was absolutely perfect. The flavours were amazing. We have no complaints about this restaurant
20/02/2018: My husband and I had the most amazing meal tonight. Gorgeous food, wonderful service and amazing wine pairing. The taster menu was awesome. We are not strangers to Michelin starred food but this was amongst the best (if not the best) we have had. Thanks to all x


Hambleton Hall

Exton, Rutland, 60-100£
19/02/2018: Our small family group visited over the weekend to celebrate our son's 21st birthday. He'd demanded no fuss or fanfare so we complied. From the moment we booked to our departure after dining the experience was great. Exceptional service and attention along with a lovely lounge, bar and dining room ensured a memorable evening. A great touch was the personalised menu for our son and we will treasure that. Food was wondrous and we keep on talking about it.
04/02/2018: The food and service is always first class though I do feel the setting needs a light touch to modernise the resturant decor. Of course it exudes class and formality but with only 6 other diners at lunch I wonder if a slightly more modern presentation and lighter lunch options might encourage a wider audience still willing to part with good money for the first class experience.


White Horse

Kings Sutton, South Northamptonshire, 20-30£
19/02/2018: I have eated here loads of times. Its brilliant. Fantastc chef, great service, nice selection of gin and beers.
17/02/2018: Cannot believe the White Horse has been under our noses and we only found it today. Glad we have a decent pub with delicious food and interesting drinks offering on our doorstep.


Calcutta Club

Radford and Park, Nottingham
19/02/2018: What a refreshing change to be greeted and served by staff that seem to be interested and so helpful throughout our evening.Fabulous food to follow on all accounts most were recommendations by front of house "Gemma" try the vegetarian options I was told,well now I'm a convert.Great staff Great food Great night......See you soon guys !!!
19/02/2018: While in Nottingham me and a friend fancied a indians we looked on trip adviser reviews and decided to give the Calcutta club a try. Food tasted great and our waiter had excellent customer service and catered for all our needs. I would 100% recommend visiting this restaurant if you fancy an Indian meal while in the area.


Ascough's Bistro

Market Harborough-Little Bowden, Harborough, <20£
21/02/2018: Dinned with 6 other chefs and we all loved it, being a chef it’s easy to pick fault with venues and dinning experience’s but have to say the restaurant owner and head chef have done everything they can to make your experience worth while. Hats off to you, I highly recommend that anyone who is in the area pays a visit and try’s the tasting menu it’s worth every penny x
21/02/2018: The pair of us had three very enjoyable courses accompanied by a very nice bottle of wine suggested by the waitor. Service and price were fantastic!



Bakewell, Derbyshire Dales, 30-45£
19/02/2018: I am often left disappointed when dining out. The menu often sounds interesting but doesn't quite live up to expectations. So called 'gastro pubs' charge the earth for bought in reheated food.
13/02/2018: Visited with my parents for my Fathers birthday. A very relaxed fine dining experience. The staff are friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The menu is fairly small, but all of the food is made from quality ingredients well prepared and presented. Desserts are excellent and clearly made on the premises. No corners are being cut. Highly recommend.


Koinonia Restaurant

Castle, Newark and Sherwood, >100£
18/02/2018: We have wanted to try the Koinonia for a few years so decided to do with friends for a meal. Wow we were not disappointed. It was a busy Saturday night and we were still treated as if we were the only ones there. The manager and his brother were wonderful and explained the dishes to us and the other waiting staff were very good to. Our food was amazing, I had the kappayum meenum .. fish curry which I’ve never tried before and it was amazing. We shall definitely go back I’ve never had such gorgeous food. Loved it.
17/02/2018: We were looking for something different for a family lunch and having checked a few reviews Koinonia appeared to fit the bill and also be outstanding. Maybe they had an off day, but it turned out to be just about the poorest indian style restaurant we have ever visited. I would also point out that our party of 4 included a Keralan and another with considerable experience of Keralan food. Included in our starters were over cooked prawns and extremely tough lamb chops, but that was the best part of the meal. The main courses were tasteless, spiceless and watery. Apart from 2 or 3 pieces of breast meat the chicken seemed to be just small pieces and scraps and the fish curry was more like a very mild fish soup. In addition the service was confused and slow (our 2 course meal taking about an hour and three quarters) and everytime a new customer arrived the waiter broke off from taking orders to welcome the new arrival. I cannot begin to understand how this restaurant has achieved such high ratings, but as i stated earlier perhaps they just had a bad day. At £110 for a 2 course meal for 4 including 1 drink each we certainly wont be returning to find out.


White's of Ashbourne

Ashbourne North, Derbyshire Dales
02/12/2017: By fluke, Adam and I ate an stayed at White's of Ashbourne.
29/11/2017: This is an award winning restaurant - you can see why - quality staff, menu and food! The restaurant is stylish, understated but chic - and the Christmas decor was of the 'less is more' genre. This was easily our best meal in the area and the hospitable owner spent time with us, which added to our understanding of what the business is achieving. Obviously based on having an excellent chef, the food is thoughtfully put together and the flavours were sensational. Our starters were: Goat's cheese panna cotta with decorative flavours - apple, cobnuts, sorrel and red onion; and quail's breast on a bed of black pudding, lentils and spinach. Original - tasty and fun - we loved them! The mains were of similar creativity - hard ayto choose but we both went for the cod with white bean and chorizo cassolet with braised fennel, which was phenomenal! We shared a dessert which had five brilliant components - bitter chocolate tart, Ximenez jelly, prunes, smoked nuts and almond ice cream - superlatives are needed to understand just how well this combined into a memorable eating experience. This resaturant is the 'real deal' - just book and enjoy. Our bill came to £81 and included a very good New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc - good value for this level of quality. If only we did not live 110 miles away...


La Rock Restaurant

Sandiacre North, Erewash
19/02/2018: My boyfriend kindly took me to La Rock for Valentine’s Day and it was amazing. I cannot pick any faults with this place!!!
18/02/2018: Faultless at all levels. Simply superb food, excelling in appearance, design and taste. Could it possibly get any better? I really doubt it.
