We have visited this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. It's welcoming and the staff are very friendly and polite. We loved the current decor upstairs - very relaxing and plenty of room between tables. The food is great - fresh,well cooked and well presented. They cater very well for all dietary requirements. A most relaxing and romantic... More

We booked this following reviews from others and were not disappointed. Welcoming staff.. with the more experienced training the youngsters in situ which we applaud. However this did not distract from the ambience. We both had a lovely starter and tasty main course...I particularly remember my salmon and horseradish starter and my partner her superbly cooked steak... we tried a... More

We visited this restaurant last summer and had a lovely evening with great food. Last weekend we were spending another night in Buxton so we booked here looking forward to another special evening. My special mushroom starter wasn't very special at all and my plate was quite watery but not with dressing. I had calves liver for my main course,... More

We ate at this delightful restaurant prior to a theatre trip. The whole experience was really enjoyable. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and has a very welcoming feel. We chose two different starters which were both equally delicious. We both chose the steak with prawns for the main course, which was sumptuous and cooked just to our preferences. We couldn't...

I love the hot oak smoked salmon starter I had here. I stayed with the fish theme and enjoyed the hake fillet with squid rings. The squid was so soft and tender, completing this dish of flavours.

We went to this lovely restaurant for my husband's birthday. Friendly welcome but the food was superb. Corned beef pate, prawns in smoked salmon followed by lamb and steak cooked to perfection, nice bottle of wine followed by a creamy ice cream and coffee. Not rushed, all in all very enjoyable.

Having booked to see an evening performance at the wonderful Buxton Opera House we decided to have a pre-theatre meal and booked in at the Columbine restaurant, which opens specially for this by prior booking.

As good as ever and that's pretty damned good. Mix of ages, mix of tastes and mix of pernickertiness all catered for with good humor by the excellent staff. Not cheap but there are plenty of cheap places in Buxton with correspondingly cheap standards. This place is the best restaurant in the town.
