Columbine Restaurant is a stylish, understated and – most of all – unforgettable favourite of foodies in Buxton. The restaurant benefits from a relaxed atmosphere with an intimate feel, and so is also suitable for small groups and private dining. The restaurant boasts beautiful bay windows, intricate chandeliers, and walls bedecked with reflective mirrors. The cosy cellar rooms below offer a further, more atmospheric dining experience.
The à la carte menu changes five times a year, while the specials list is updated weekly. The kitchen serves innovative British dishes such as crab and Armagnac pâté with homemade herb bread to start, which is best enjoyed alongside chilled pinot grigio. Depending on the season, delicious dishes such as puff pastry topped with caramelised red onion, avocado and asparagus, and the simple herb-crusted lamb rack with redcurrant and rosemary gravy, which showcases locally reared High Peak lamb, may adorn the menu.
This independent restaurant benefits from a prime location in the heart of Buxton. Diners can enjoy views of the gorgeous Grade I listed Buxton Crescent. Columbine Restaurant provides an intimate space in which to enjoy freshly prepared food, and is a must-visit for tourists of the Peak District who enjoy the finer things in life. The restaurant can open earlier for pre-booked pre-theatre suppers.
