Bath Street, BAKEWELL, DE45 1BX
Piedaniel's is run with great personal warmth and charm by a husband-and-wife team who keep the town supplied with reliable bistro cooking. Starters encompass a simple salad of smoked chicken and roast cherry tomatoes dressed in white truffle oil, or perhaps a saffron-fragranced take on moules marinière. Main courses nail their colours to the mast of hearty prime cuts - confit duck leg, lamb shank, beef fillet topped with red onion marmalade in wild mushroom casserole - while fish gets a look-in in the form of cod crusted in lemon and parsley, sauced with white Burgundy. Finish with brioche-and-butter pudding in Grand Marnier custard, or proper crêpes Suzette.
