Privately owned and managed, the Best Western Lee Wood is an elegant Georgian hotel in the spa town of Buxton. Whether you're visiting them to stay or for a meal, rest assured you'll be welcomed with a warm smile at all times.
From the thirty-eight individually decorated ensuite bedrooms, to the Elements conservatory restaurant, and the bar and lounge, the facilities at Lee Wood are second to none.
When at the restaurant, nibble on Kalamata olives and herbs as you order starters of, say, smoked wood pigeon with pepper caramel and quail egg, or steamed mussels with Asian spices and coconut cream. With main courses of Thai green curry with chicken and rice, Gloucester Old Spot pork chop, mustard mash and caramelised apple, and Haloumi cheese with Moroccan spices, peppers, and couscous, get set for some culinary globetrotting at Elements. The chocolate pot with cookies and strawberry milkshake serves as a brilliant way to finish.

The stylish and comfortable interior of Simply Thai urges guests to relax, forget their cares, and 'simply' enjoy the experience of dining on dishes that are created from authentic Thai herbs, spices and vegetables, sent to the restaurant every week from growers in Thailand.
The ideal Thai meal is a blend of the spicy, the subtle, the sweet and sour, and is meant to be equally satisfying to eye, nose and palate. The menus at Simply Thai present a range of dishes from lunch, á la carte and set menus.
Expect to find chicken satay, fishcakes, barbecued vegetables, deep-fried wrapped prawns, minced chicken on toast and spicy salads to start; these could be followed by zesty green, red or yellow curries, and stir-fried dishes of say beef with asparagus and broccoli. The menu also offers grilled meats, and specialities of pla nung manow or steamed fish. Vegetarian mains of tofu in coconut milk complement the food and fragrant rice and noodles can be had alongside.
The restaurant caters for weddings and meetings, both large and small.
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.
