Here are the 10 best restaurants in Derbyshire according to the Michelin Guide

The past year has been extremely tough for the hospitality trade – but despite restaurants having to remain mostly shut since last March, the annual Michelin Guide’s authors haven’t been deterred in their mission to highlight fine cooking.

“We want to promote the industry as much as we possibly can,” the Michelin Guide team said, explaining their decision to publish a 2021 edition of the gastronomic bible.

“We all have memories of great meals, of favourite restaurants, of nights out with friends. Restaurants will not be closed forever and someday soon we will be able to start making plans.

"We will have birthdays and anniversaries to celebrate; family to meet; dates to go on – and for all these things and more we will choose restaurants. The world of hospitality is embedded in our culture and will soon be part of our everyday lives once again.”

Work on this year’s guide started in August 2019 and was largely complete when the first national lockdown began in March 2020, they said.
