Visited this restaurant within the Palace Hotel for Sunday lunch and has recently changed ownership, and now part of the Britannia chain. We have previously eaten here and never been very impressed with either the food or service but the new ownership seems to have turned the experience around and we were very impressed.

National Holidays have found a good one here. Excellent food, service and reasonably priced wines. The kitchens should be proud of the food they are sending out.

We had dinner included as part of our package for a one night stay on a Friday night at the Palace Hotel in Buxton which is now part of the Britannia hotel chain. The menu choices and overall quality of food was average. The service was very poor. We, and other diners, had to ask for basic service ie, food... More
