Warm welcome into a beautiful restaurant the food was spectacular and served by polite and efficient staff.
A little expensive but well worth it
Fabulous food served by friendly knowledgeable staff. Coped with vegan tasting menu and tasting menu with no nuts completely calmly, with total aplomb. We had a fab evening, we’re there 4 hours with our various tasting menus and great wines.
A really lovely lunch with fabulous food & service, brilliant
Wonderful food, great service and attention to detail.
We have been to Stones on a number of occasions and food is always of high standard, amazing flavour combinations and beautifully presented. We would definitely recommend Stones to our family & friends.
Excellent as always. I have been going to Stones for many many years. They have maintained their outstanding standard throughout.
Excellent service and quality of food presentation. Outstanding flavour combinations and an excellent wine list. Can’t fault this restaurant
Fantastic food and the staff were even better. I made Stones the place to propose to my partner and after speaking to Abi it was the right choice. They made our night so special, all the staff were amazing. Can't wait to return.
Fantastic food, lovely friendly staff. Perfect evening
Fantastic staff very attentive and happy which we like.Tasting menu was varied and delicious and English red wine was a good find.
Excellent food. Every course was a delight and all the extra touches such as the canapés and amuse bouche make it special. Good value - highly recommend.
Great location, food and service. Highly recommended!
The food was delicious. Service very friendly and appropriate. Everything was so clean looking - glasses, cloth, cutlery. Wine reasonably priced and wide range. It’s a real treat visiting Stones.
Fantastic food and service will definitely return.
One of the best restaurants in Derbyshire, worth waiting for
Highly recommended. Excellent food and service. Good outside seating if weather is good
Came across this restaurant by chance, managed to book a table and had a wonderful evening. Friendly staff and excellent service, food was fantastic and drinks too. Highly recommended.
Took our friends for first time. Perfect food. Well done chef!!! Brilliant service. Wine good quality. Lovely evening sat in the conservatory. Well done Jade and team. M&E Bentley
Stunning taster menu, wine flight & perfect service . Thank you Stones for another lovely evening.
Went for date night to celebrate our anniversary.
Food was gorgeous and the service was fantastic! I had the duck for mains which was delicious and their entrees were fabulous
The restaurant decor itself could be improved, but still very worth a visit!
This is a hidden gem. Everything about it is high end but at an affordable price. We come back again and again. Superb staff.
Great food, pity chairs were very uncomfortable for a long lunch. They look fantastic but none of our table of 4 sat comfortably for our meal. Vegetarian options were good but very limited.
A good experience. The only thing wrong was our bill - twice!
Excellent meal - fine dining. All courses delicious, including canapes etc. Lovely friendly staff who were attentive but not intrusive.
Another excellent meal at Stones and the food continues to be Michelin standard.
Stones is probably our favourite restaurant - and that is not necessarily a good thing for them, as our expectations are always so high. Anything less than perfection might stick in the mind, but fortunately I can't recall ever being disappointed.
On our latest visit we had the vegetarian tasting menu. It was almost daunting to think that when we had enjoyed the canapes, amuse bouche and the homemade bread, we hadn't even got to the first of eight courses!
The food was - as ever - excellent. So much flavour in every course, and the portion sizes just right, so you manage to get to the end feeling nicely indulged but not over-faced.
The staff are wonderful, and always make the meal a special occasion. Attentive yet discrete; efficient and polite. The restaurant itself has a great ambience and is just a lovely place to eat.
I booked the tasting menu for me and my friend, I was already excited and it far exceeded my expectations. I can't imagine ever having a nicer meal than the one that we had here. Every element of the evening was perfect.
Another lovely meal at Stones. Plenty of choice, cooked to perfection. Great standard of service. Can’t wait to revisit.
As usual we had an amazing lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was wonderful and the candies and petit fours made the meal something special!
Our 2nd visit to Stones & we cannot fault it. Service & food exceptional 10/10
The meal was superb, imaginative, tasty, excellent. The staff where polite & efficient.
We went there yesterday for my husbands 60th and truly EVERYTHING was perfect. Would highly recommend for a great dining experience with very helpful and friendly staff.
We are regular visitors to Stones usually on a weekend but Thursday was equally as good on service and quality of food. Thanks
We have been to Stones for years, but last night (26/8/21) was not its usual relaxing experience. The music was little loud and disco songs don't sit well with the ambience. The staff rushed through the service and we had drinks order, and all the canapés, amuse bouche and bread within a very short time. After our starter we asked for a break as it we felt rushed. It was a little longer to the main course but we were leaving the restaurant only one hour from going in.
It will be such a pity if this becomes most peoples experience.
We will go back at some point but as this was a meal for a seventieth birthday which had been booked for some time we are unhappy.
Stones are back!
Food good, which is well presented as always. However, the 2021 summer menu seems a little conservative compared to those enjoyed pre-pandemic.
Excellent surroundings and efficient, unobtrusive staff, ideal for a special meal.
