Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Fantastic Food at Fischer’s

This summer, to celebrate the 2012 “proud to be British’ campaign many local businesses offered real bargains of some sort; one of the most generous and most enticing offers we cam across was the £20.12 lunch offered by Fischer’s, Baslow Hall.

The food is delicious, the gardens are lovely

Now, Fischer’s, for those of you who don’t know the area yet, is the only restaurant in Derbyshire to hold a Michelin Star; their head chef, Rupert Rowley, recently won Silver in the Taste of England category at the national Visit England Awards for Excellence 2012. The restaurant is in a beautifully restored country house surrounded by lovely gardens, in Baslow, the other side of Bakewell, about half an hour’s drive from Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns.

We went in the summer, and loved the whole experience. The food was pretty amazing too! We have just heard from them today that it was so popular that they are going to continue the offer throughout 2013. They are now offering a special “2013” menu, available from Monday to Friday, 12 noon-1.30 pm at a cost of £20.13 for two courses, and £25.13 for three courses between 2nd January to 29th November, excluding 14th February.

This is already fantastic value – but wait for it – in addition, Fischer’s are partners in our Peak District Premier Cottages Privilege Card scheme, which entitles all guests staying with us to a 10% discount on top of the very generous offer. Mention it when you book, and be sure to show them your Privilege Card on your keyring when you arrive!

Obviously, you may well decide to stretch the budget to include wine, or coffee afterwards, but you don’t need to, and will be under no (external) pressure to do so. I must say we did, and then had a very relaxing stroll round the gardens to make the whole occasion a very special one indeed.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Below is a sample menu to give you a flavour of what you might expect. Tables need to be reserved in advance by ringing them on 01246 583259 or emailing: reservations@fischers-baslowhall.co.uk.
