5 Things You Didn't Know About Losehill...

One

Our a la carte menu changes daily. Our dinner menu has a selection of six delicious choices for each course, including vegetarian options. Our resident guests enjoy this format and rarely find their selection an easy one with such varied dishes.

Two

Our spa uses luxurious ESPA and Thalgo products. We use Thalgo’s range of expert marine products and ESPA’s luxurious natural skincare products to offer powerful healing, revitalising and relaxing spa treatments. We have also been awarded the Thalgo Platinum Spa Award in 2012 and 2013 for excellence in beauty.

Our Orangery Restaurant has its own vegetable garden. As part of our dedication to using locally-sourced produce, in 2014 we planted the garden at Losehill House. After a successful first season, the venture has proven viable and so our guests will hopefully be enjoying home-grown produce for years to come.

This is awarded to businesses who put pride in the Peak District at the heart of their operations, who actively help safeguard and improve the Peak District environment and heritage and who add to the wellbeing of their communities.

Losehill House Suppliers Win Award

Our Orangery restaurant is known for supporting independent businesses by sourcing unique, high quality produce to use in our dishes. One such supplier that we've been using for a while is Cabrito Goat Meat, in Devon. Owned by James Whetlor and Sushila Moles, Cabrito Goat Meat do not breed goats; instead they take the billies from the dairy industry and supply them to restaurant, and so helping to end the industry practice of culling males at birth.

The business has recently won The Observer Food Monthly 2014 Award for Best Producer, and we're delighted to be the only Derbyshire restaurant serving this amazing meat. The kitchen team here at Losehill House, headed by Chef Darren Goodwin, have created delicious dishes with Cabrito Goat Meat’s produce such as ‘Slow Roast Leg of Goat with Pommes Boulangere and Grilled Romanesco Broccoli’ and ‘Loin and Shoulder of Goat with Melting Broccoli and Brock Hall Farm’s Joie de Chèvre Sauce’.
