2. Book a table in Darley Dale

 

If you’re looking to dine out this Valentine’s Day then a steak dinner always comes in top as the most popular choice and as a result, most Valentine’s Day set menus offer just that.

Other popular favourites include fish, curry and pasta or risotto dishes.

Our roasted sirloin of beef, asparagus, caramelised shallots, hispi cabbage, crispy bacon, red wine jus melts in the mouth!

Our delicious chocolate tart is the perfect treat to end the meal with.

Then there’s the traditional Valentine’s inspired afternoon tea – here at Orangery restaurant in Darley Dale we are proud of our Valentine's inspired menu and we can't wait for you to sample it.

3. Takeaway

 

Of course, we all live busy lives and not everyone loves to cook (or perhaps you spend a lot of time in the kitchen and just fancy a night off!), in which case there is no shame in treating yourself to a takeaway.

That could be one of the typical takeaway favourites… fish & chips, Chinese, Indian, Thai, fried chicken, pizza...!

Have you considered the supermarket alternatives?

Top tip: Often the supermarket ‘Meals for two’ are tastier, healthier and more affordable than the fast-food equivalent.

Try Tapas for two from Sainsbury’s or Waitrose's selection of meals for two.

Cheers to that!

Don't forget to accompany your dish with something refreshingly ice-cold.

Perhaps our pimp your prosecco tips will leave you inspired!
