Riverside House Hotel

Ashford in the Water, Bakewell (Nr.), Derbyshire, DE45 1QF
 A good restaurant/hotel, set in a Georgian building on the banks of the River Wye, in the heart of the Peak District. The comfortable, wood panelled, dining room is adjoined with a delightful conservatory – where lighter dishes are served.

Chef John Whelan offers excellent dishes, some based on his time working in France.

Perhaps begin with ‘Pan-Roasted Foie Gras with a Ginger, Apple and Pear Mousse’; ‘Spiced Scottish Salmon, Watercress Salad and Sesame Biscuit’ or ‘Terrine of Confit Organic Chicken, Baby Artichoke, Piquillo Peppers and a Girolle Salad’.

With maybe ‘Pan-Roasted Fillet of Derbyshire Beef, Macaire Potatoes, Creamed Leeks and Shallots’; ‘Slow-Roast Confit Leg of Lamb, Braised Vegetables, Mint and Rosemary Gnocchi’ or ‘Roast Vegetable Strudel, Olive Scented Potatoes and a Salad of Fresh Herbs’ to follow.

If you have room, finish with ‘Valrhona Chocolate and Raspberry Tian with Raspberry Sorbet’; ‘Espresso Pannacotta’ or ‘Warm Apple and Stilton Crumble’
