Stella's Kitchen

Peak District restaurants to try

Peak District restaurants to try while staying with us? If you’re looking for something far away from the cosy country pubs our region is famous for, we may have just the places for you to try.

We’ve put together a few suggestions of places you can try while staying with us at Wheeldon Trees Cottages.

Stella’s Kitchen

Stella’s Kitchen offers African and Caribbean food in the Peaks. You can enjoy Stella’s home-cooked Afro-Caribbean food in the surroundings of her farmhouse in the beautiful Peak District village of Eyam.

Alongside eating in, Stella also offers takeaways and a wonderful catering service to make any special occasion a memorable one. ​The team only uses the finest locally sourced, fresh produce and authentic Afro-Caribbean ingredients and recipes.

Stella’s warm welcome envelopes everyone and her hospitality is genuine. She serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Riverside Kitchen at the David Mellor Design Museum

Looking for more than just a café experience? Head to the David Mellor Design Museum in Hathersage.

The Riverside Design Museum Café is a beautiful, unusual environment for relaxation and discussion. The café faces out towards Michael Hopkins’s Round Building and is open for breakfast, lunch and afternoons.

The café is next to David Mellor’s Country Shop which stocks the full range of David Mellor cutlery as well as a collection of the finest British crafts: handmade pottery, woodware, glass, English baskets, horn and marble, jams and honeys.

The idea behind the David Mellor shop is to combine a prime selection of British rural crafts with designs from the best international modern manufacturers.

Santiago in Buxton

Santiago is a family-run business established in 2021 in Buxton.  It’s a restaurant, bar, shop and delicatessen promoting authentic Spanish food and drink.

Although not Spanish, the family from Buxton love everything about Spain and their menu

showcases ingredients directly from Spain, which you can also purchase in their shop and enjoy from the comfort of your own home. From bread baked daily to over 100 wines, there really is something for everyone.
