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.

Not having been before we didn't realise last sitting was 7:30ish. Booked a table and really glad we had as it was very busy. My first choice unfortunately was not available but I had a lovely steak. My husband had pork belly both were excellent. I had the lemon mess for desert and can recommend it. Next time we will... More

Great eating experience in the centre of Buxton: lavish surroundings, varied choice of tasty and inventive dishes, very friendly staff (to humans and dogs) and a hairdryer and tongs in the ladies for those bad hair moments! Thank you and Well Done to all concerned.

We booked with only a few hours before the four of us wanted to eat on a Friday evening. Really good atmosphere, not too noisy with many locals there (always good sign in a tourist town) and the food was excellent and reasonably priced at four main courses, three deserts and two bottles of good wine for about one hundred...
