WELCOME TO COLUMBINE RESTAURANT

We are a small privately run restaurant in the centre of the Peak District's main town of Buxton.

About Us

 

The Columbine Restaurant is situated in the heart of the beautiful spa town of Buxton, surrounded by Derbyshire's Peak District. It is within walking distance of the magnificent Buxton Opera House, and the new Buxton cinema, making it ideal for a perfectly timed pre show supper, or a relaxing evening meal with friends, family or colleagues.

Steve and Kim McNally have run the restaurant since 1997 (after spending many years in guided restaurants and Country House Hotels).

Our aim is to use small local suppliers in the Peak Distict, who can provide us with first class produce which we serve in a variety of dishes from the à la carte menu, vegetarian and specials choices.

During the Christmas and festival seasons (July and August) our menus are added to with a set price table d'hôte menu. Pre and after theatre suppers available all year by prior reservation.

The restaurant comprises of three rooms over two floors (one on the ground floor and two in the cosy cellar), each is spacious enough to allow privacy without losing the relaxed, snug feel of an intimate restaurant. The three spaces are also available for you and your friends, family or work colleagues to use privately (from 8 to 18 guests).

We source as many of our ingredients as locally as possible so that we can vouch for the provenance of our dishes:- local butchers, growers etc. All our dishes are freshly prepared and cooked, enabling Columbine to cater for diners with allergies and intolerances.

Thank you for a fantastic meal last night. The quality of the food and the service were excellent. A very memorable evening.

Mr Mike M    24th February 2018

Dear Kim, Steve et al. Thank you for two lovely meals in the last few days. The boys and girlfriends enjoyed Saturday, and the B… and A… equally enjoyed this evening. Thank you for helping to make my 65th celebrations so enjoyable, and thank you for the cake - it really meant a lot that you had gone to the trouble to do it. We look forward to all our future visits. All the best.

E & J    21st February 2018

Thank you for looking after us on Sunday. We all had a lovely time. Hope we weren't too loud. Hoping that we can be with you again soon.

Kim N    15th January 2018

Hi Kim, I just wanted to write a short note to thank you and your team for Saturday night - the food and service were perfect, and all made sure that everyone felt comfortable and in no need to rush their food. I'm very much hoping I don't have to organise anything similar, but we'll be certain to recommend you to our audiences, and I'll look no further if ever we have to treat anyone in Buxton in the future!
With many thanks once again, and all the best,

Mr Oliver D   24th October 2017

Thank you so much for the excellent dinner on Saturday and for all your hard work. We could see that the relatively short time-frame was quite stressful for you but in the event, everything worked like a well-oiled machine. Thanks also to your lovely staff who managed to keep smiling while rushing around serving us all. Here’s to our next Buxton event and the inevitable accompanying Columbine dinner!

Mr Keith B    23rd October 2017

We have recently returned from a trip in N England. Just a note to thank you for the excellent ambience of your restaurant, the very fine standard of your cuisine and the way in which you provide it. Outstanding. We will certainly visit you again when we trek north.

Mr Anthony L   19th October 2017

Hi Kim and Steve, we had a lovely meal yesterday evening. Many many thanks for the chocolate brioche pudding. It is absolutely divine. Happy Easter. Best wishes,
