Cavendish Hotel

Church Lane, BASLOW, DE45 1SP

2 rosettes

If it begins to seem as though you can't move on the Chatsworth Estate without walking into another centre of culinary excellence - but who's complaining? The Cavendish is a stone-built hotel (once the Peacock Inn) acquired in 1830, its present incarnation recreated to a historic template by the Devonshires, using some of their own furnishings. The Gallery is a low-ceilinged dining room done in robin's-egg blue, or there's a Garden Room for more informal dining. A roll call of modern classics such as seared scallops with black pudding and pea pur?e, roast pigeon breast with couscous, and loin and haunch of venison with celeriac and beetroot in chocolate jus utilises much of the pedigree produce of the estate. But the beaten track is also profitably abandoned for the likes of tandoori monkfish cheek with pumpkin pur?e, butternut squash cake with wilted greens and spiced lentils, and pecan pie with blackberries and salted brown butter ice cream. If you're more of a stickler for tradition, the artisan English cheeses are of the gold standard, and there's apple crumble and vanilla ice cream too.
