Went to this resturant to celebrate my wife's birthday with friends, we were not disappointed. The menu was varied as was the wine list and the cooking was exceptional. For the quality and price I would recommend this resturant to other.

We recently stayed in Buxton and decided to try the Columbine, We telephoned the restaurant and as it turned out were lucky to get a table for the two of us. The patron and his partner were entertaining guests with a 20th anniversary menu containing favourites which had been prepared and presented over the years. We started with the crab... More

We had a fantastic meal with friends here. Our times here are always much enjoyed. The herring starter is so very good. I followed this with hake with a rarebit topping which was quite delicious. We accompanied our meal with some good Sauvignon Blanc wine and finished with coffee and peppermint tea. A splendid evening.

Not having booked, and arriving before the restaurant was actually open, we were welcomed in, given a table in a quiet corner, and learned that as this was the beginning of the 20th year of the current ownership, the prices had been rolled back! The food was imaginative, well prepared and tasty; the portions weren't huge which meant that to... More

We ate on bonfire night - and it was a bit empty till the fireworks were over. The restaurant at ground level is relatively small, but there are other rooms downstairs. There is a wide menu - which made it hard to choose. both the venison and hake were well cooked and tasty.

Party of 8 ate here on Thursday evening, everyone enjoyed their selected meal. I chose the lamb & it was cooked to perfection, vegetables were just right, & dessert was lovely too. Everyone commented how good their meals were. Pleasant staff.

What a great night we had, we chose the Columbine for our friends birthday, from the moment we walked in the staff were really friendly. The food was amazing, cooked perfectly and really flavoursome. If you are looking for somewhere to eat in Buxton definitely make it a priority.

I booked Columbine for my dad's 50th birthday and am so glad I did - the team were a pleasure to deal with, very friendly and so accommodating. There were 8 of us so we were able to have one of the private dining rooms downstairs to ourselves which was such a treat. The food was delicious, we all loved... More
