An old bank on the outskirts of the Peak District has been developed into one of the most idyllic places to eat, drink and chill.

If you had any preconceptions of a traditional ‘steakhouse’, forget them because that is not what we are.


Fabulous food, wonderful drinks – all topped off with a modern atmosphere that will be unforgettable. We ask you to

come and take a seat with us and experience Herd for yourself. We are able to offer river view seating, booth seating

or just a stool at the cocktail bar if you just fancy a drink (…or two).


Please follow our Facebook Page (@Herd Steakhouse) where we will give you the latest news and updates.


We look forward to meeting you and making you part of our family.


It can never be too early to start thinking about Christmas… Why don’t you join us over Christmas period to have lunch or dinner with us? We have created the perfect Christmas menu for all diners that we hope will please everyone! We only ask for a ‘pre-order’  and small deposits for all parties over 8pax. 

Perfect for families, friends and cooperate events (even for the Scrouge of the group).

Boxing Day Raft Race

Herd looks perfectly over the River Derwent and the bridge which marks the start of the Boxing Day Raft Race. This annual event attracts thousands of people to support people in fancy dress in a mixture of handmade rafts, trying to make it down the Derwent in one piece! The Boxing Day Raft Race has been going since the 1960’s and has around 40 rafts participate in the event.

Our restaurant and outside terrace look directly over the River Derwent. Whether you would prefer a warm seat to see the madness, or would prefer to get fully involved and be outside with a lovely warm cup of tea – Herd is for you.

Whether you prefer the warm or cold – come and join us for a glass of prosecco (or a glass of orange juice for the youngsters), hot drink and all you can eat breakfast! The perfect Boxing Day cure after a slightly heavy Christmas.

Tickets are available directly at Herd, or we can take payments over the phone (01629 581171) and post your tickets directly to your door (additional £2 postage fee).

Adult Ticket (over 12 years) £16.95

“Loved every bit of it. The food was perfect. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the look of Herd was second to none. Also we thought it was very reasonably priced for the quality of food and surroundings.

Will recommend to everyone and we'll 100% be returning. Thank you.”

Basement Bar & Cocktail Masterclass

Our Basement Bar is an amazing space that encapsulates where the original bank vault lay. It has a fully stocked bar and space for either a musician or a DJ. It is also on the same level as our outside terrace that has seating and over looks the River Derwent.

You may have seen our Basement Bar, but did you know that you could privately rent the space? The Basement Bar is open to the public over the weekend, but available for private hire around these times. We offer a range of bespoke packages around your requirements, so we ask for you to contact us directly to discuss these a little further.

Another thing you may or may not know about us, is our undeniable passion for cocktails! On the basis of this, we now offer a range of Masterclass Cocktail Making Classes. The Basement Bar will be yours for the duration of your Masterclass and you will be trained by our highly skilled bartenders.

This includes a breakdown of the origin of cocktails, a brief run though of the bar equipment, actual demonstrations of a selection of our cocktails and then – it’s down to you.

We offer Basic Package through to our Premium Package. The difference throughout the package sizes are a variation of the following: more cocktails personally made by your group (and drank!), prosecco on arrival and an amazing selection of food served canapé style. Our minimum group size is 8pax and can be up to 20pax – it’s down to you.

Ideal for birthdays, hen parties, stag do’s and general ‘get togethers’. Please contact us directly for our availability and quotes for your packages.
