We were greeted by a member of staff with a warm smile who invited us to a seat. It is really spotless and the cakes are displayed in a glass cabinet for all to see. Excellent coffee and a lovely pot of tea. Will visit again when visiting Chatsworth

Second visit. Booked a table this time as we didn't want to risk it. Had been walking in the morning and wanted a light lunch : Charlie's sandwiches hit the spot exactly-great portions and interesting flavours and presentation. Good value for a " smart" place ( as opposed to a cafe) and lovely friendly staff with prompt service and a... More

Out for the day cycling, we were looking for somewhere for lunch and stumbled across this place. Food and service was excellent. Very tasty, well presented, and good portions. Well worth calling into for lunch.

I wanted to dislike Charlie's as the last time I attempted to have breakfast here I arrived for opening at 10am and nobody had bothered to turn up by 10:20 so I left. I'm pleased I gave them a second chance. We were a group of 6 for breakfast on a Sunday so we booked in advance. We're pleased we... More

Wanted to come here for a while, booked the day before. Lobster ravioli for starters and roast sirloin of beef for mains washed down with an excellent bottle of Malbec. Can only repeat what other dinners have said but a really nice experience with excellent service and at a good price.

I think I'm getting a hang of Trip Advisor, as Charlie's Bistro is yet another delightful find, summed up my my family as follows... "Dad, you may have your faults, but you always find really nice places to eat". This time it was Sunday lunch for our teenage daughter's birthday. On offer was the 'usual' menu, a specials board and... More

Incredible starter, main and dessert. Fabulous service and atmosphere. Four of us and all of us thought all three courses were gorgeous.

What a gem of a place to find so near to Chatsworth! Birthday Sunday lunch - best I have had in absolutely ages. Left feeling way too full and we didn't even manage 3 courses! 🙈 Lovely friendly welcome and service, I thoroughly recommend a visit and will be returning. Thank you very much to everyone, you helped to make... More
