A brand new restaurant has recently opened in Wirksworth's market place serving delicious home-cooked food and a selection of drinks. Saint Betti caters for everyone whether it's simply popping in for a drink or enjoying breakfast, brunch, lunch or an evening meal. It is set against a backdrop of quirky styled décor that is an infusion of contemporary, industrial and graffiti inspired designs, yet blended with a classic touch.
Saint Betti prides itself on serving wholesome food, freshly made to order by its in-house chef, and delivered with excellent service. All food and drink sold at Saint Betti is either locally produced or sourced from local suppliers. This includes everything from meat from Wirksworth to roastery coffee from Buxton. Saint Betti also sells a range of world wines, a selection of Peak Ales, and gins from White Peak Distillery just a few miles away in Ambergate.
Lee Richards, who set up Saint Betti, says, “Running a local business myself I know how important it is to support the local High Street as well as local producers and suppliers, which is why I'm ensuring I source all products locally.”
Lee previously ran the popular “Coffee Bunker” in Wirksworth, a café offering light lunches and snacks throughout the day. However, when the larger premises in the market place became available he decided to move there instead. Increased space and seating means he can now offer an extensive menu with hot cooked food dishes that include steak pies, lasagne and chilli as well as vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options.
Contributing to the local community and promoting Wirksworth as a visitor destination plays an important part in Lee's business. This is no more evident than in the name he's given to the restaurant. Saint Betti is named after the seventh century Saxon monk who travelled to Wirksworth from Northumbria where it is said he founded a church on the site where St Mary's Parish Church now stands and became its first priest.
In addition to its ground floor restaurant, Saint Betti also comes complete with an outside terrace that catches the sun, perfect for enjoying a drink whilst watching the hustle and bustle of the town. There is additional seating upstairs, which also serves as a function room that is available to hire.
Whatever the occasion, Saint Betti is the perfect place to catch up with friends, celebrate a special day or just watch the world go by, whilst supporting all things local.
Saint Betti is open daily from 9am-4pm (closed Wednesdays) with evening bookings from 5pm-10pm on Fridays and Saturdays. For further details, or to book a table phone 01629 820900, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit: www.saintbetti.co.uk
