Restaurant description

Inside a beautiful 18th-century building, The Farmhouse at Mackworth serves up a great selection of world dishes. The restaurant boasts its own josper and wood-fired pizza ovens, and offers stunning views of the Peak District.

The Farmhouse at Mackworth menu makes good use of its specialist ovens – prime cuts of steak from across Britain and the U.S. are cooked in the josper charcoal oven, while sourdough pizzas from the wood-fired oven come with toppings including smoked streaky bacon, West Country brie, peppadew peppers and chorizo. Other mains include ale battered fish and chips, and pan-fried salmon with pak choi and spring onion.

On the dessert menu at The Farmhouse at Mackworth Derby, there are favourites such as raspberry ripple baked Alaska with fruit compote, and a selection of dessert wines. The bar area also mixes up a selection of cocktails, and there are premium spirits on offer, including aged Scotch and Japanese whiskies.

The Farmhouse at Mackworth perfectly combines tradition with innovation, and sits an 11-minute drive from Derby Rail Station.

    The atmosphere was great and safe during these trying times. The staff enforced the one way system and explained things very clearly. They also made sure that any allergies were taken care of. We enjoyed our meal and found them to be served by friendly staff. The guy who waited on us did a fantastic job and was so nice and accommodating that we would visit again.

    Haven't been in years so the modern layout was great and conservatory a lovely area to be seated. Covid precautions very well in place and thorough. Service was excellent. A little disappointed by the menu which seemed a bit limited in variety. It was expensive for what was served and I wouldn't have ordered a steak at those prices. Burger, flavours not particularly to my liking and my friend's prawn pizza only appeared to have about 6 prawns. Overall it was an enjoyable evening

    We had a very enjoyable evening at the Farmhouse last Friday night. The arrival at the restaurant was very welcoming and our booking was found immediately and we were taken to our table and explained the different measures which had been employed for coronavirus which was very reassuring. Our drinks order was taken very quickly and the drinks arrived within a few minutes which is always nice. Our waitress was very attentive, answered questions about the menu and the meals all arrived together in very reasonable time. Everyone enjoyed their food and the atmosphere was very perfect. It was busy but not too busy that we struggled to hear each other or were ever disturbed so faultless on that count. We live locally so try to visit the Farmhouse at least once or twice a month and always consider it when family and friends come to visit. This experience will only make that experience stronger and we look forward to coming back very soon. Thank you.

    We were greeted at the desk to confirm our booking and explained clearly the rules about moving around the premises and then asked to fill in the details for track and trace, then we were taken to our table and lovely view over the gorgeous gardens, the drinks order was taken and then left to make our choices from the menu after being told the offers the staff were lovely friendly and polite! The food was absolutely beautiful would not hesitate to book again
