Chesterfield Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Chesterfield

November 5, 2017 Hana Mouser

Chesterfield is a market town and borough in Derbyshire, England. It lies 24 miles (39 km) north of Derby and 11 miles (18 km) south of Sheffield at the confluence of the rivers Rother and Hipper. Including Whittington, Brimington and Staveley it had a population of about 103,800 in 2011, making it the second largest town in the ceremonial county after Derby. Archaeologists trace it back to a Roman fort built in the 1st century AD, but soon abandoned. Later an Anglo-Saxon village developed. The name derives from the Old English ceaster (a Roman fort) and feld (grazing land). It has a street market of some 250 stalls three days a week. The town sits on a coalfield, which was economically important until the 1980s. Little visual evidence of mining remains. The best-known landmark is the Church of St Mary and All Saints with its crooked spire, originally built in the 14th century.

Dinner for 2 on 15 Feb recently.
The food and service was top quality. I had the blade of beef as a main and it was very tender my guest had the set trout and it was superb.
We shared the cheese board and were impressed with the quality and variations from around the British Isles.
This is the first time I have eaten there and we will be back.

Reviewed By Zenxxx - Sheffield, United Kingdom

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Japanese cuisine noted for its excellent and healthy ingredients, all freshly prepared? What we had to endure was a constant stream of greasy, rubbery, over-salted, indigestible foodstuffs swimming in what appeared to be engine oil and for which we were charged a small fortune.

Cocina Restaurant

Reviewed By Darren C

Having stayed in Chesterfield with work for the last 5 months I have had plenty of opportunity to try different restaurants in the area, nothing comes anywhere close to Cocina.
The food is excellent and beautifully presented worthy of the rosette rating it gets, as well as the superb food it is the staff that makes this restaurant special.
Efficiently run by friendly managers (Cara, Christina and Jenna) and the chefs as well as being very talented are very personable, nothing is too much trouble at the atmosphere in the restaurant is friendly yet intimate, every member of waiting staff are professional yet can judge when a customer wants to chat. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The Market Pub

The best pub in Derbyshire

Reviewed By Ella H

I visited The Market Pub with my family on the steak night which is really great value! I received a wonderfully thick steak and some beautiful hand cut chips. The only complaint was the steak was cooked rare rather than medium rare and the bernaise sauce was only a tiny portion I couldn't taste. However, the food was tasty and the service was friendly. Will definitely be visiting again.

Been here several times for coffee and cakes, never disappointed, whatever we choose. All baking is home made. Scones, both sweet and savoury, are so good, and the cakes are easily as good as any I have ever tasted, anywhere! I prefer this lovely little place to other same old same old places we see in every town these days...you can guess which ones I mean.. The decor is nothing short of beautiful and the service first class. I really cannot fault it at all. Prices are really good too, really good value. Glad to see that it's busy, more people obviously discovering how good it is!

Chesters

Reviewed By Ross G - Chesterfield, United Kingdom

Had a cheeky takeaway on a Saturday afternoon and I’ve heard great reviews about Chesters, so thought why not! Fish and chips was excellent and the home made fish cake was delicious. Even the mushy peas gets top marks. Better than seaside fish and chips! Really enjoyed our visit and will definitely go again. Might try the restaurant next time.

Rose and Crown

Rose and crown is in the heart of the village and has got the character and cosy feeling of a local village pub serving proper homemade hearty food for all the family. It also has a good selection of wines and beers. Reservations are advisable to avoid disappointment as it is a busy little pub at prime times.
