Old Post Restaurant (The)

43 Holywell Street, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, S41 7SH
A good neighbourhood restaurant, in a pretty building not far from the town's famous church, and partly dating from the 15th century. As its name suggests, during its varied history, it was once a post office.

Co-proprietor/chef heads an inventive kitchen team that offers a seasonally-changing menu. An early summer snapshot brought 'Ham Hock Terrine with Grain Mustard, Pineapple Pickle & Fried Hen's Egg'; 'Glazed Mushroom Pancake with Stilton & Sour Dough Bread'; and 'Pan-Fried Scallops with Black Pudding & Sausage Meat Savoury' among the starters.

'Roast Rump of Local Lamb with Boulangère Potatoes, Puy Lentil Ragoût & Roasted Cherry Tomatoes'; 'Pan-Fried Duck Breast with Chorizo Potatoes, Creamed Savoy Cabbage & Roasted Cashew Nuts' and 'Fillet of Sea Bass with Red Peppers, Bok Choi and Egg Noodles with a Chili, Soy & Toasted Sesame Seed Dressing' listed among the mains.

'Warm Bakewell Slice with Cherry Sorbet & Crème Anglaise'; 'Apple & Pear Crumble with Vanilla Custard' and 'Bitter Chocolate Tart with White Chocolate Ice Cream' typify the desserts.

Dishes at lunchtime are lighter, ranging from Omelettes through Pasta & Risotto to Shepherds Pie & Pan-Fried Calves Liver with Mash & Onion Gravy.
