Relaxed fine dining, nestled in beautiful Derbyshire countryside
The Lighthouse Restaurant
As a whole team, our aim is to provide a relaxed dining environment where stunning food & attentive service is at the heart of our ethos. We have designed one menu, entirely dictated by the seasons. An experience designed around the fusion of different cuisines, nostalgia, informality & fun. Fine Dining in Derbyshire has never been better.
From brisk winter mornings to the warm summer sun, our experiences in life are dictated by the seasons, so why should the food we eat be any different? Traditionally, we wouldn’t have had the choice to enjoy foods provided to us by nature in a different season than the one we’re in, so we’ve pair it back and we aim to enjoy ingredients as they arrive.
Food & Wine
Our menu’s change with the seasons, We’re not hugely prescriptive with our menu changes. We work with seasonal produce, and this may mean ingredients and dishes evolve and change as rapidly as the weather.
"It may not be near the coast, but the Lighthouse does attract your attention. The self-taught chef prepares ambitious, complex dishes with good combinations of flavours and textures; the tasting menu, in particular, is a hit."
"'A lovely dining experience and the food is sublime' was the verdict of one visitor to this 'remote rural location'. Barn like with is exposed brick and high rafters, the dining room is spacious and airy with most tables facing the open kitchen where Jon Hardy and his team produce some assured and innovative cooking. A summer tasing experience menu skips around the globe"
