About the restaurant
The Duncombe Arms is a beautiful, traditional country pub situated at the heart of the lovely rural village of Ellastone on the Staffordshire / Derbyshire border. Located on the edge of the Peak District near the towns of Ashbourne and Uttoxeter it is a great place to visit providing a delightful setting in which to enjoy a drink, some lovely food, as well as a chat with friends or family.

Come inside and enjoy a roaring log fire, sample our excellent range of beers and wines or enjoy fabulous food from our award-winning chef Jake Boyce. Or in the summer you can laze in our large garden overlooking the view to Worthy Island Wood.

First time visiting the Chatsworth Kitchen, with friends, and it won't be the last. We all had the burger and remarked how tender & tasty was the meat. Great success. Thank you

A pleasant atmosphere to dine in. The food was good and well refined. Service welcoming and very good. We enjoyed our meal and will return in the future. Car parking is an issue particularly for those who have mobility issues. We do not have mobility issues but it would be something we would have to consider when we wish to dine with our friends. A recommendation for suitable places to park would be most helpful.

About the restaurant
The Bluebell is a smart, modern place to relax offering fuss-free food and drinks that retain the reputation for quality we’ve hopefully earned at Stones. Dogs are welcome in our outdoor space and bar area. No dogs will be allowed in the restaurant-style extension. Parking Please note we have a car park on-site however it can get very busy and is limited. Please respect the neighbours when parking on-street by not blocking their driveways. Please do not park opposite other cars therefore making the road too narrow to pass. Come and join us at this beautiful old pub very soon. Please note we are closed on Sunday evenings and all day on Mondays.

We booked at very short notice, but the Bluebell was able to accommodate us - and I'm so glad we chose this venue! The décor is modern but tasteful, sympathetic to the age of the building but comfortable, bright and clean. We received a very friendly and warm welcome and were seated very quickly. The staff were attentive, efficient and well-presented, taking our order soon after was settled. The menu was impressive, with a few choices for vegetarians/vegans. The food was outstanding, in terms of presentation, flavour and the standard of cooking. As one of my sons said, "I feel like I'm on MasterChef!". Overall, we had a fantastic experience here, and if we lived closer (rather than 100 miles away) we'd be regular visitors.

About the restaurant
Tucked away in the heart of former spa town Matlock, Stones is a cosy restaurant serving modern British cuisine. The restaurant’s interior is smart and intimate while the kitchen marries British produce with recipes inspired by international cuisine. Don’t be fooled by the apparent simplicity of the seasonal lunch and dinner menus, every dish demonstrates the culinary imagination, technique and flair of the vibrant kitchen team, led by head chef Kevin Stone. The additional tasting menu offers eight courses partnered with a carefully selected optional flight of wine. Catering for all dietary requirements, Stones offer distinct vegetarian and GF menu. Diners can enjoy views overlooking the coursing waters of the River Derwent. Discreet, informed service with an informal approach, allowing the food to take centre stage, Stones is one of the finest dining experiences in the area, carrying two AA rosettes for culinary excellence. ***Visit www.stones-restaurant.co.uk for up to date menus.***

Please note that due to necessary Covid-19 restrictions, however, and until futher notice, our menus will be reduced and produced daily. We still offer a menu full of tasty starters, main courses and desserts is to satisfy all appetites.

We serve tasty and fresh sandwiches along with filled jacket potatoes for those looking for a lighter lunch. We also offer a full and comprehensive menu for those wanting a more substantial meal. Our standard menu is accompanied by our Special Board, which details additional meals that we change throughout the month.

We pride ourselves on our menu as we make full use, where possible, of seasonal produce and look to source as much as possible from local Peak District and Derbyshire suppliers.

Much of our meat is supplied from Castlegate Stud Farm, in Stoney Middleton.

Excellent meal enjoyed by all for us. Very friendly service. We were so engrossed in our conversation probably outstayed our welcome. I took my Wiltshire visitors to see the unbeatable surroundings afterwards.
