About Fischer’s at Baslow Hall
Situated within a beautiful, 100 year old Grade II listed manor house in the heart of the Peak District, Michelin starred Fischer’s at Baslow Hall offers an unforgettable culinary experience. Placing British ingredients and modern techniques at the core of its cuisine, Fischer’s is home to a state-of-the-art kitchen complete with a Kitchen Tasting Bench at its centre.
At the helm of award-winning Fischer’s kitchen is Head Chef Rupert Rowley. A native Yorkshire-man, Rowley spent a number of years developing his craft in the kitchens of Raymond Blanc’s Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons in Oxford, John Burton Race at 2 Michelin starred L’Ortolan restaurant in Reading and prior to joining Max Fischer at Baslow Hall in 2002, braving the kitchens of Gordon Ramsay at his flagship eponymous 3 Michelin starred Chelsea restaurant.
Plating up seasonal dishes from locally sourced ingredients, Rupert is passionate about Derbyshire and Yorkshire produce. 90% of all the ingredients used in the Fischer’s kitchen are British and many are grown in Baslow Hall’s very own kitchen garden.
Pre or post-dinner drinks can be enjoyed in the adjacent lounge, with a roaring log fire for wintry days. From weekend breaks in the country, to languid Sunday lunches, special occasion dinners, spontaneous lunches and private events, guests can rest assured that everything at Fischer’s is cooked to perfection with passion, pride and precision.
Offering much more than your traditional Peak District getaway, seasonal tasting menus, bespoke dining experiences and one-off foraging and cookery classes ensure there is a reason to visit Fischer’s year-round.
