    COSTA: DELICIOUS

    by alyf1961 Written Sep 17, 2013

    Whilst in Buxton at a long weekend VT meet with Gilly, Hayley, Jane, Dave, Christine, Katherine, Ricky and Sheila I decided to pay a visit to Leek. I had to wait an hour for the bus so I went to Costa for breakfast. The staff were friendly as they usually are in small towns and I had a latte with a lemon and poppyseed muffin….delicious, this set me up for the day ahead.

    Favorite Dish: LATTE
    LEMON AND POPPYSEED MUFFIN

    The Old Sun Inn: Helpful staff and good food

    The Old Sun Inn

    We stopped here for a late lunch during our visit to Buxton in April 2013.

    The pub has an outdoor seating area to the front and is an intricate weave of rooms located around a central bar inside.

    This place is all about the food and selection of ales available - definitely a pub, rather than a restaurant. The menu offers a wide selection of choices, nearly all priced under £10, whilst blackboards tell of their specials, sandwiches and light snacks. Given this variety, surely anyone will find something to suit their palate.

    Favorite Dish: I had the beef in ale which was served in a Yorkshire pudding with new potatoes and a side selection of seasonal vegetables. The beef was tender and the gravy filled with flavour; the vegetables were a good selection and served at just the right texture - not too crisp but definitely not soggy!

    My friend had the lasagne, served with garlic bread which appeared piping hot and smelt divine! We both had soft drinks to accompany our meal so did not have the opportunity to sample the selection of ales - something I intend to rectify.

  • RAILWAY INN - BUXTON: A DISGRACE

    by beanoorange Written Apr 22, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visted the Railway Inn on Sunday to experience the worst Southen Fried Chicken Burger ever had. Upon receiving the food I was disgusted with the poor quality the onion rings were over cooked and greasy ONLY 6 in total, the southern fried chicken came with NO mayonnaise, burger relish or gherkin as advertised, and the salad garnish advertised was a few bits of shrivelled up lettuce, well past its edible time, and the bun was dried up and stale!!! On complaining the manager was rude and aggressive STAY AWAY IS THE ONLY ADVICE I CAN GIVE !!!

    The Railway Hotel: Good Carvery

    by Balam Written Feb 17, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When we arrived in Buxton we parked near to the Railway Hotel so it was the perfect place to go for something to eat.
    It was a Sunday and they have a Carvery on Sundays as well as their normal menu but all three of us opted for the Carvery.
    It was reall nice food and although it was not the type that you can go back for more you did not have to because the portions were large.
    The normal menu looked good and on future visits to Buxton i would eat here again.

    The Railway Inn: The Sunday Carvery is lovely

    The Railway Inn, Buxton

    The Railway Inn is an attractive building just across the road from the main shopping street of Buxton. We were lucky enough to visit Buxton on a Sunday so were able to partake in the Wonderful Carvery which they serve for Sunday lunch. The Carvery consisted of Roast meats (a choice of three), Yorkshire pudding, vegetables, potatoes and gravy. It was delicious and really good value for under £7.00 each.

    Favorite Dish: The Carvery is the only one I've tried so far - it was delicious.

    The Old ClubHouse: A popular pub

    The Old ClubHouse

    I havent actually eaten in this pub but we called in here for a drink with Laura (vt member Hayward68) when she visited us.
    When we visited Buxton this time we were going to go in but there wasnt room to breathe even, people were spilling out onto the pavement. Seems a lot of the customers were members of brass bands who were playing at the Pavilion Gardens.

    The pub actually until the mid 1980's was a gentleman's only club!

    There is a dining room and a patio area outside.

    Cat & Fiddle: 2nd highest pub!

    by bugalugs Written Oct 13, 2005

    Cat & Fiddle Pub
    2 more images

    The Cat & Fiddle pub is the second highest in England and was built in the early 1800's. It is very popular with walkers/hikers being in the Peak District but also with bikers (motor bikes). The main part of the pub where you can have just a drink or a meal as well, is a non smoking area. Adjoining the main part is the area where the bikers usually congregate, you can still have a drink here and a meal, and this is a smoking area.
    The winding narrow road is a place where the bikers speed so fast and deaths have occurred on this road.
    You usually see a police car or two along here watching drivers/riders speeds.
    The pub stands at almost 1700 feet above sea level. Fantastic views of Cheshire and the Peak District on a fine day.
    I have put a photo on here where in the distance you can see a white spot, that is Jodrell Bank in Cheshire which is a huge Observatory belonging to the School of Physics and Astronomy at Manchester University.

    Favorite Dish: I had scampi, french fries and salad, washed down with some wine of course. My husband had steak and ale pie.

    Pavilion Gardens
    2 more images

    There are actually 3 places in the Pavilion Gardens where you can eat.
    Fountain Restaurant - we walked through here and have done before and it has always been empty, apparently it is open every lunch time for a full meal service and late afternoons and evenings it can be hired out for functions.

    Promenade Cafe - We have sat in here and had a snack on a few occasions. They sell sandwiches, baked potatoes, salad, cakes, biscuits, tea, coffee and cold drinks. Also ice cream. This open every day except Christmas Day.

    Coffee Lounge - Upstairs on a kind of balcony overlooking the Fountain restaurant is the coffee lounge. This is open every weekend throughout the year, weekdays in the summer months and at half term school holidays.
