Eating Out in the Derbyshire Dales

Places to Eat

With an abundance of restaurants, pubs and cafes, eating out in the Derbyshire Dales (often using locally sourced ingredients) is a gastronomical experience.  You will be spoilt for choice for places to eat.  There is something to suit most tastes and budgets including fine dining restaurants, gastro pubs and high quality tearooms and cafes.  It is recommended that you reserve a table at restaurants and gastro pubs, particularly on Friday and Saturday evenings and Bank Holidays.  Ashford Grange will be happy to assist with making reservations for eating out in the Derbyshire Dales on your behalf.
