An 11 bedroomed family-run luxury hotel and home to one of Derbyshire’s award-winning restaurants. Fischer’s Baslow Hall offers a dining experience unrivalled in personal service, luxurious attention to detail, and brilliant, imaginative modern British food at its inventive, eclectic best.


Following in the footsteps of Executive Chef Max Fischer, the kitchen team have retained many accolades including Three AA Red Rosettes, Four AA Silver Stars, and listings within the Good Food Guide, and the Good Hotel Guide. 

Head Chef James Payne combines classic favourites with more modern combinations and relies heavily on seasonal, local and British produce. An abundance of micro herbs, fruits and vegetables are grown in the Baslow Hall gardens for use in the kitchen. 


General Manager John Cooper, Restaurant Manager Adrian Tinis and Sommelier Matthew Davison, oversee the Front of House with an emphasis on high levels of customer care. 

The dining room is classically set, crisp white table cloths and napkins, polished silver cutlery and gleaming glassware. Dining ambience and food service is an important part of the experience, so it is important we spend time building knowledge with regular training sessions such as coffee, foraging, wine and food tastings. We employ a young dynamic front of house team.
