We went there first night in Buxton and loved it so much we went there again the next night! We chose it because dogs are allowed in downstairs and it looked nice. It was a really nice place with a good atmosphere and fabulous food. We ordered 3 starters to share the first night and it was way too much... More

We had a very mixed trip to Buxton but this place made the trip! It was recommended to us by the Store Manager and colleagues of Mountain Warehouse in the town. This is a contemporary bar and restaurant with a contemporary vintage feel to the place. The decor is very relaxing and comfortable to be in and feels exceptionally welcoming.... More

Another excellent meal at this atmospheric restaurant. Booked by telephone prior to visit - very helpful staff from this point onwards. Lots of choice on the menu and good drink selection - beer on draught being a plus point. Centrally located and fitted well with our visit to the Dome which is minutes away. We will certainly return for another... More

Went in here whilst on a visit to Buxton. The bar has a great atmosphere plenty of locals and lots of people eating. Menu has lots of different dishes, mainly English but a hint of worldwide. Great food for both of us - Lemon mess dessert was fantastic and the cheeseboard for one would have fed four. Would return if... More

We would never set foot in this place ever again. The seating areas where you are meant to dine are uncomfortable with settees that are too low for the tables. The menu is seriously over priced for the low quality of food being served up and both the waiting on staff this particular night along with the arrogant manager leave... More

After debating which busy restaurant to try while looking at the opposite side of the road we realised we were standing outside Barbarella's. A lady just leaving said there was additional room upstairs and she could recommend the food. Seated upstairs, we found the decor charming - restful and elegant with comfortable squashy sofas at one end and candlelit tables... More

A very clever Wine Bar, Pub area, comfy seating and extremely busy restaurant. It all comes together and so too the customers. Very busy and vibey serving an excellent choice of dishes, try the nachos as a starter and the fish cakes. We loved the place, very select wines and extremely well priced.
