My sister, brother-in-law and I had a short break in Buxton last weekend, and booked for a meal on Saturday 20th May at the Columbine. The food was excellent - beautifully presented and tasty. The service was great. Highly recommended - I just wish it was nearer to where we live!

Delicious three course meal with friendly service. We enjoyed our wonderful pre-theatre meal at the Columbine very much indeed. Looking forward to our next visit.

Booked a table on a Saturday night at sort notice, and glad we did. The menu including a specials sheet was impressive and to our taste. The service was friendly, and explained that they were busy so our meals could take a little longer than normal, but we didn't really notice. The food was cooked to perfection, we had the... More

We booked this following reviews from others and were not disappointed. Welcoming staff.. with the more experienced training the youngsters in situ which we applaud. However this did not distract from the ambience. We both had a lovely starter and tasty main course...I particularly remember my salmon and horseradish starter and my partner her superbly cooked steak... we tried a... More

Had the pre show meal and it was fantastic the staff was so polite yes in this day and age and the house red wine was great the only down side is it's halfway up a very steep hill I'm disabled so it was a challenge but well worth it

We visited this restaurant last summer and had a lovely evening with great food. Last weekend we were spending another night in Buxton so we booked here looking forward to another special evening. My special mushroom starter wasn't very special at all and my plate was quite watery but not with dressing. I had calves liver for my main course,... More

We ate at this delightful restaurant prior to a theatre trip. The whole experience was really enjoyable. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and has a very welcoming feel. We chose two different starters which were both equally delicious. We both chose the steak with prawns for the main course, which was sumptuous and cooked just to our preferences. We couldn't...

I love the hot oak smoked salmon starter I had here. I stayed with the fish theme and enjoyed the hake fillet with squid rings. The squid was so soft and tender, completing this dish of flavours.
