    Very lovely meal in a wonderful setting, would highly recommend if your in the area!

    Really tasty food served up by a lovely couple. The main menu isn't the cheapest but you get what you pay for, quality! We love visiting here and look forwards to visiting again.

We say…

If you are looking for a venue with ‘wow-factor’, look no further than Carriages Bar and Restaurant in Newhaven. Situated on the edge of Derbyshire’s picturesque Peak District, Carriages is nestled almost the exact same distance from Buxton, Ashbourne, Matlock and Bakewell; making it ideal for get-togethers, special occasions or dinner with a twist!

Once you step through the entrance to Carriages, through the Booking Office, and head towards the Platform bar you will realise that this is no ordinary restaurant. The two dining rooms are housed within two vintage Orient Express and Pullman rail carriages which lead off to either side of the bar. The dining rooms are comfortable with a touch of luxury and plenty of unique focal points. With velvet armchairs, period-style table lamps and a healthy dose of first-class sophistication, dining at Carriages is a comfortable, relaxing and memorable affair. A small al fresco area to the front of the establishment is ideal for enjoying a drink or two when the weather permits and a spacious lounge area is cosy and welcoming when it’s too cold to sit outside.

Throughout the year, Carriages hosts a number of special events and is home to a successful ‘Ladies that Lunch Club’ as well as being a popular venue for wedding receptions, birthday parties and other special occasions. Carriages are able to cater their services to your requirements and, with friendly owners Vincenzo and Karina on hand to ensure that everything runs smoothly, there’s no doubt you’ll be back time and time again.

The food on offer is a mixture of classic and more modern Italian favourites. Sicilian-born Vincenzo heads the kitchen and cooks with passion, flair and a real understanding of how Italian food should taste. An extensive a la carte menu that features mouthwatering dishes such as Anatra Balsamica, perfectly cooked duck breast served with a rich, caramelised sauce flavoured with Marsala wine, shallots and thyme; Pollo al Dragoncello, tender chicken breast in a delicious cream, tomato and tarragon sauce; and Linguine ai Gamberetti, linguine in a delicious Prawns, parsley and garlic sauce with a touch of sherry and tomatoes. For those looking for a lighter bite, an extensive bar snacks menu which is served in the plush cocktail bar where you can relax surrounded by railway memorabilia, is available throughout the day. All meals are perfectly accompanied by an excellent selection of fine wines, beers and spirits.

Carriages also boasts a five-star food hygiene rating, the highest level that a restaurant can achieve, which only goes to show that the high standards present in the food are applied and enforced across the entire venue, ensuring that you have a superb meal, every time!

If you are looking for a unique venue to give your lunch or dinner a special twist then Carriages pub and Italian restaurant in Derbyshire is the place to go. With unique décor and a welcoming and friendly ambience, dining here is a real pleasure for the child within, and the food lover.
