We say…

Situated just off the Buxton Market Square within easy read of the Buxton Opera House and the Devonshire Dome, Nat’s Kitchen is a restaurant that simultaneously promotes and celebrates Derbyshire produce.

The philosophy at Nat’s is to provide a service that they feel is lacking in many other establishments and pour their own blend of skills, experience and knowledge to turn the dining experience into something completely unique and special, every time. The restaurant space itself also reflects this, providing a cosy, homely space complete with an aga, sand-blasted wooden tables and large, comfortable sofas for enjoying a pre, or post, meal drink in. Nat’s is firmly rooted in the Buxton community and art work from the local children’s foundation can be found adorning the walls.

The menu is almost solely created using fresh, locally sourced produce, though the cheeses are left to the French to provide! With the key cornerstone of the Nat’s dining experience being value for money food without compromise on taste or presentation, you can rest assured that taste and value for money are catered for at Nat’s. Head Chef Todd is a natural talent who has experience in everything from London restaurants to fine dining establishments across the UK. His love of the surrounding areas means the produce is used sympathetically and cooked in a way that enhances and showcases flavour, texture and colour. You can expect to find dishes such as garlic mushroom ravioli and tomato and parmesan tart as starters and creations such as Guinea fowl with vegetable Mecedoine and fois gras sauce or grilled calves live with champ and smoked bacon sauce for mains.

If you are looking for a relaxed dining experience with exceptional cuisine, Nat’s Kitchen is a must. The combination of fine dining cuisine paired with homely surroundings creates a welcoming atmosphere that is a delight to dine in.

    Overall:

    The room is very nice, with a traditional cottage feel to it complete with log fire. The food was OK. A starter of home-made pate was very tasty. A main of pork belly, was disappointedly served on a bed of potatoes swimming in olive oil, making an already fatty dish now oily. The meat was a little overcooked requiring a steak knife to cut it. The pork belly came with no vegetable sides. A desert of sticky toffee pudding was light and bland. The wine list is not for those who like to drink wine with simply a list of half a dozen wines by grape type, shiraz, cab sauv, merlot etc. No other details given. They do have a nice selection of cask ales on tap though The service was unfortunate with a young waitress who couldn't pronounce sirloin as the special, delivered glasses to the table by holding them at the top and left dirty cutlery from the mains on the table until we left. Overall, disappointing, the room and ambience is very nice, the food has some really good points in it.

    Overall:

    enjoyed the saffron rissotto with goats cheese which was reakly nice. As a vege I often find it a little hard finding restaurants with enough options on there, and to be fair, when making the booking and I told them I am vegetarian, they asked if their was anything in particular that they could make for me! You dont often get that! But, off the menu was fine. My partner enjoyed his lamb alot and we shared an apple tart with vanilla ice cream. a lovely experience which was very fairly priced.
