  5. Head Chef Rupert and his team raise a glass to their new kitchen

    As you may know, we were closed for 10 days at the beginning of the month whilst we installed a fabulous brand new kitchen carried out by HK Foodservice Architecture. The Kitchen team are enjoying the introduction of induction cooking which is a very refined, quick and also a very efficient method of cookery.

    Vernon and Longshaw bedrooms in the Main House have also been refurbished, so it has been a very exciting start to the year.

    We will very much look forward to welcoming you to Baslow Hall for lunch, dinner or an overnight stay.

  7. Listed Number 54 in Sunday Times Food List

    Fischer’s was named 54th top restaurant out of 100 in The Sunday Times Food List on Sunday 19th October 2014. The guide lists Britain’s Top 100 Restaurants ranked by the opinions of Sunday Times readers in association with Harden’s. We scored 9.40 out of 10 for our food which is excellent!

    For those who didn’t see it, our comments were as follows:

    Head Chef Rupert Rowley, who trained under Raymond Blanc and Gordon Ramsay, delivers witty interpretations of the classics with a particular focus on local ingredients: Derbyshire lamb, beef, game and forced rhubarb from over the border in Yorkshire, and – new this year – honey from 12 hives on the property. The owner, Max Fischer, brought this Peak District gem, near Chatsworth in 1988.
