Dome Restaurant

From sensational starters through to delicious desserts, experience fine dining in the awe-inspiring setting of the Devonshire Dome.

Your meal will be prepared by students from the University of Derby and Buxton & Leek College as part of their Real World Learning experience, enabling them to put theory into practice in the supervised and pressurised environment of our state-of-the art commercial kitchens.

Working under the watchful eye of our Head Chefs and their team, our students deliver the highest professional standards but because your meal might take a little longer to arrive than usual, we offer this unique fine dining experience at generously discounted prices.

Our students learn how much effort and dedication they’ll need to succeed, knowing that if they do they’ll be among the most highly sought after in the industry.

University of Derby graduate Megan Fallows went on to work at Belmond Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons, Raymond Blanc’s two Michelin starred restaurant.
