This hotel and restaurant is run by people who are not as others are - something that makes them interesting and unusual, some might say mildly eccentric, but so what, there should be more of the same. Let's get away from this 'sameness' that grips our country.
The Buckingham is nice and handy for the Buxton Opera House so a pre-theatre supper is served at 6.15, with the main event at 8.00. The menu is straightforward with starters of, say, Greek salad with feta cheese and olive oil dressing, or deep fried gougons of plaice with tartare sauce.
Main courses could offer roast sirloin, breast of chicken wrapped in bacon with Madeira sauce. Desserts follow the same pattern.
The range of beers, ciders, brews from abroad, including the famed Festival Doktor, is impressive and the wine list is perfectly adequate.
Church Lane, Litton, Buxton, SK17 8QU [Map]
Traditional British fare occupies pride of place at the Red Lion. Guests can tuck into old favourites such as steak and kidney pie served with homemade chips, freshly battered fish and chips and sausages, Derbyshire lamb hotpot or slow cooked oxtail casserole. Vegetarian options include wild mushroom pepperpot with basmati rice and salad, goat's cheese and Mediterranean vegetable salad and spicy beanburger. A gluten-free menu is available too. A satisfying repast can conclude with desserts such as apple and blackberry crumble, treacle sponge or sticky rice pudding. The pub offers a good selection of hand-pulled ales, Oakwell Barnsley Bitter, Abbeydale Absolution, Adnams Broadside and more, in addition to wines, malt whiskies and soft drinks.

Newhaven, Buxton, SK17 0DU [Map]
Here's a restaurant that brings alive a unique theme with traditional Italian cuisine. Set in Little Sicily, at the heart of Derbyshire's Peak district, owners Karina and Enzo have given the Carriages Italian Restaurant a classy 'steam era' railway station feel. As you enter the restaurant the 'Platform Bar', adorned with railway memorabilia greets you. The dining area, actually two carriages - 'Oriental Express' and 'Pullman Carriage' - are decked with velvet armchairs and period style table lamps to create a cosy, comfortable setting.
Daily specials, with an emphasis on fresh fish dishes, feature along with an extensive a la carte menu providing options for a rich and varied banquet. The chef specialises in 'home cooking' such as fettuccine alla norma, duck breast in rich caramelised sauce with balsamic vinegar wine and thyme and funghi ripieni. The warm Sicilian hospitality and the selection of wines, spirits and beers ensure an enjoyable evening.

7 Hall Bank, Buxton, SK17 6EW [Map]
The Columbine Restaurant is a small privately run restaurant in the centre of the Peak District main town of Buxton. Situated just two minutes away from the Buxton Opera House, and one minute from the market square it makes an ideal spot for shoppers and opera visitors to have a quick bite before the show or a more elaborate meal afterwards. The restaurant offers a relaxed informal atmosphere with friendly, non-intrusive service.
The bill of fare changes seasonally and all the food is made to order, portions are large and the cooking is well skilled. Start your meal with a creamy natural smoked haddock and potato soup, and sesame crumbed strips of chicken served with sweet chilli sauce. For main course order arctic char sautéed with queen scallops in a herb and lemon butter or char grilled sirloin steak with smoked bacon and blue Stilton cream. Finish with hot chocolate pudding with fudge and hazelnut sauce.
