Our Head Chef Rupert Rowley is a local lad. He trained at Sheffield College before going to Raymond Blanc's "Manoir aux Quat' Saisons" near Oxford. From there he moved to L'Ortolan at Shinfield under John Burton-Race and in 2001 braved the kitchens of Gordon Ramsay at his flagship 3 star Michelin restaurant in London. Rupert returned to his native Sheffield and Fischer's in 2002.
In 2003 he was appointed Head Chef. Rupert's cooking is always evolving. He combines classic favourites with more modern combinations and relies heavily on local produce in season including Derbyshire Lamb, Chatsworth Venison, organic Beef and Yorkshire forced Rhubarb.
Over the years our Restaurant has achieved many accolades, not least a Michelin star which was awarded in 1994 and every year since. "Accolades are wonderful, but we cook to please our guests". (Rupert Rowley)
"Dishes are highly inventive, built around outstanding combinations that leave you eager to explore the next one" AA Restaurant Guide.
Enjoy the perfumes of the Herbaceous Border on a Summer afternoon and the scent of freshly cut grass. Wander between the raised beds where Max nurtures salad, herbs, vegetables and fruits for the kitchen. Max's garden attracts as much admiration from our guests as the food, accommodation and friendly staff.
Fischer's is the perfect venue for a Wedding, a Birthday or an Anniversary. We can offer private dining rooms for parties of six or more. Because we are small we are often able to offer Baslow Hall on an exclusive use basis for Weddings of up to 40 people. More details on our website or from Reception.
Whether you come to stay overnight or visit us in search of quality food in beautiful surroundings, you will be a most welcome guest.
