The Devonshire Group has announced the opening of a new dining offer at a Derbyshire shopping village which it owns.

Chatsworth Kitchen, which has opened at Peak Village, at Rowsley, aims to celebrate quality, seasonal dishes made from ingredients sourced from the Chatsworth Estate and a community of farmers, producers and makers from across the Derbyshire Dales.

With a bespoke interior featuring hundreds of items from the stores and kitchens at Chatsworth, the new food and retail concept aims to provide a relaxed and welcoming place to enjoy delicious, fresh food selected daily from the estate’s farms and gardens.

Alongside the dining experience, a thoughtfully curated retail offer of more than 300 items of quality food, drink, kitchen and homewares is available.

Working closely with retail consultant Lady Burlington and the Chatsworth team, designers have created an interior that blends heritage artefacts with a modern and fresh approach.

Lady Burlington said: “We were inspired by the old kitchen at Chatsworth, and have brought a variety of pots, pans and artefacts from Chatsworth to the restaurant.

“Sustainability and authenticity have been central to this project; we have reused and repurposed items including chairs, doors and panelling, with many of the tables made from reclaimed flooring from the estate.

“Chatsworth Kitchen celebrates local produce, suppliers and makers, and we hope it will become a place for people to spend time together and enjoy great food, before exploring the many new shops opening at Peak Village.”

With indoor and outdoor seating, the Chatsworth Kitchen can seat 130 people, and is open from 9.30am to 5pm daily, seven days a week.

The new venture has also seen the creation of several full-time jobs, as well as casual short-term work and opportunities for career progression for existing employees.

Chris Bailey-Jones, Chatsworth’s head of catering, said: “Food is at the heart of the Chatsworth Estate and therefore it should be no surprise that at Chatsworth Kitchen, estate-reared and grown produce is celebrated in every dish.

“The menu looks to build on emerging food trends while never losing sight of the importance of local, seasonal and sustainable food that showcases Chatsworth, Derbyshire and indeed the wider country.

“The restaurant will give a distinctly Chatsworth twist to great service, being informal, fun and even a little quirky.

“All of this is helped along with a carefully crafted drinks list, looking to shine a light on local providers in a setting that is perfect for a relaxed lunch with friends or a family get together.”

The opening of Chatsworth Kitchen is part of a long-term investment and development plan for Peak Village, which was purchased last year by The Devonshire Group, the company that represents the interests of the Devonshire family at nearby Chatsworth.
