Fischer’s is the only Michelin starred restaurant in Derbyshire, and by any standards it is pretty special. John and I tend to leap at the slightest chance to treat ourselves to a meal there, most recently for our son Nick’s birthday earlier this week (see image above!). It was a truly lovely occasion, with delicious food and exemplary service.
Where we are particularly lucky is that Fischer’s is still doing their 20.14 Lunch. We have some gaps in Douglas’s Barn this month; we’re not keen on discounts because that smacks somehow of desperation or a lowering of standards (even though obviously it need not) and much prefer the idea of something extra, over and above…
While we were at Fischer’s we suddenly thought what a wonderful idea it would be to offer a 20.14 lunch for two to all Douglas’s Barn guests who book a holiday during the spell Monday 6th to Monday 20th January this year. If you book a week, we’ll give you a three-course lunch, and for a short breaks, two courses. Any extra courses or wine is up to you…and it goes without saying that the offer is not transferable – to be taken by you, while you’re staying with us!
The last (and only other) time we did this, was for Mothering Sunday last year. Tina and Neil were the lucky couple that managed to book first. They were thrilled with the whole experience, and wrote us a lovely card immediately afterwards.
“We just wanted to thank you very much for the voucher to have lunch at Fischer’s Baslow Hall. It’s somewhere we have always wanted to try and it really lived up to our expectations. We had a fabulous meal, the flavours were exceptional, making it a meal to remember. The attentive staff made sure we were very well looked after from the moment we arrived.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our extended stay in Tom’s Barn and very much look forward to returning next year.”
So, possibly it is your chance now… the offer is on the table!
Due to unforeseen circumstances Tom’s Barn is now available 24 June to 1 July 2016.
Douglas’s Barn is available to book for short breaks 3 or 4 nights between 2 and 20 May 2016. Bookings usually start on a Monday or a Friday but if you want a break that starts on a different day get in touch. We are very flexible with bookings.
