We just wanted to say a huge thank you to our wedding co-ordinator for all your support leading up to our wedding and during the special day itself. You provided excellent advice and guidance which ensured the day ran smoothly and without a hitch. We looked at many venues before alighting upon Fischer’s and a combination of your support and the beautiful accommodation, food and facilities made our wedding day perfect.
Please pass on our thanks to the chef and the catering team who did an excellent job, the food was exquisite. Our guests commented on the wonderful food which was beautifully presented. In addition, there were many comments about the high standard of accommodation, the bedrooms all unique in their decor and were beautifully presented. The gardens were also magnificent and it was a pleasure to spend time in them and have our photos taken in the beautiful surroundings.
Fischer’s will have a special place in our hearts and we look forward to celebrating our forthcoming wedding anniversaries at Fischer’s.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all who worked so tirelessly on the occasion of my son’s wedding. Your hotel, rooms, food, and facilities are second to none, and you made us all feel so welcome. We had a wonderful day, the weather was very kind to us, and your beautiful gardens provided a lovely back ground for the photo’s. Our every wish was catered for, way beyond our expectations and I personally will not hesitate to recommend your hotel for use as a wedding venue.
Please be so kind as to pass on our thanks and appreciation to all concerned, including your Chef. I’m sure that if he was present while we were eating, he would have felt great satisfaction at hearing our Ooohs! and Aaahs! of appreciation, both visual and taste-wise.
Once again, thank you all very, very much – to the cleaning staff, those who turned our sheets over in preparation for our nights sleep, the receptionists, and all those who just added those little extra touches to make our day extra special.
August 2010, Stitt

The service that we received was absolutely first class from everybody – we felt very well looked after indeed and many of our guests commented on the excellent service. The food was superb and there was plenty. The assiette of desserts is still a talking point with most of my friends and family – they were truly delicious and so beautifully presented. We greatly look forward to coming back to Baslow Hall for a meal (hopefully before our 1st anniversary)!

Dear Max & Susan Fischer, I would like you to know what a splendid job your staff did for our members this week. It was well worth the distance travelled to eat Rupert’s excellent food and drink the wine we choose with your Maitre,D. We received excellent service at the table and before and after the meal in the garden. I received professional help and service from Amy Wilkinson in organising this event she could not have been more helpful. I am copying this to the Good Food Guide as you deserve a higher food rating.

A note to thank you for providing an excellent venue for our fiftieth wedding anniversary last weekend. Outstanding accomodation – both our bedroom and for the luncheon – and the food and service throughout were admirable. We would particularly like to thank your young staff for their discrete and helpful attention throughout – you must be very pleased with them. Our guests had a fine time, and as several of them from Manchester and thereabouts did not know your retaurant before this visit they will, I am confident, be returning in the future on their own account. Even the weather behaved itself and delivered sunshine, and champagne on the lawn gave the occasion a great start! Again, our warm thanks.

I would be grateful if you could pass on our thanks to the kitchen staff for the lovely food, the waiting staff who looked after us all beautifully, and everyone else, front of house and behind the scenes, who played a part in making our day so enjoyable. We were also so lucky with the weather (I can’t give you credit for that!) which meant we could enjoy the wonderful gardens in the afternoon – the children loved being able to run about and let off steam after being on best behaviour in the dining room, and the grown ups could relax in the sunshine over coffee and chocs. Many thanks to everyone concerned, and to you for co-ordinating it all so efficiently. I’m sure we shall be back.
