Rowley's Restaurant & Bar

Rowley's Restaurant & Bar


Church Lane,
DE45 1RY


Rowley's Restaurant and Bar sits on the edge of the beautiful Chatsworth Estate in the pretty village of Baslow. Our passion is fresh, seasonal food using local ingredients in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.

The bar is a great place to meet up with friends, open daily from 10am serving Fairtrade coffee. Call in at any time for a glass of wine or hand crafted beer from a local brewery. Rowley's boasts three contemporary dining areas, ideal for lunch, supper or dinner.

Chef Patron Max Fischer designs the menus in collaboration with Head Chef Jason Kendra. In 2013, Max was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Sheffield Hallam University for his commitment to cooking. In 2009, Max was named also Local Food Hero by Derbyshire Food & Drink Awards.

The Rowley's Set Lunch Menu is available Tuesday to Saturday lunchtimes and offers excellent value. The Fish Friday supper offer is popular with locals and visitors, and Rowley's Sunday Lunch is an ideal opportunity to relax with friends and family. The Children's menu is available all day.

We cater for private parties and family celebrations, with a variety of menu options available to suit any occasion.
