A restaurant at The White Hart Inn is undergoing a £50,000 renovation.
The new Fork & Furrow at popular wedding venue in Moorwood Moor, near Alfreton, is set to reopen on April 7.
The new-look restaurant will feature a seasonal menu using local produce from the Derbyshire area – spirits from White Peak Distillery in Ambergate and beers brewed at The White Hart’s sister pub, The Canal Inn in Bullbridge.
The new restaurant will have a chic and sophisticated décor with dark wood furniture, wooden partitions entwined with plants, modern lighting, a zinc bar and unique preserved moss feature wall.
Luke Richards, operations director for the Moorwood Hotel Collection, said: “We want the Fork & Furrow to be a celebration of modern British cuisine.
“Where possible, we will source produce locally – there are so many fabulous suppliers here in Derbyshire – to support the economy in our region, and cut down on carbon emissions.
“A lot of thought has gone into this project. Obviously Derbyshire is landlocked, so getting local fish just isn’t possible. Instead, we’ll create a food map, so that diners can see where their fish came from and follow its journey to their plate.
“We have visited cities such as Edinburgh and London to check out the latest trends in dining out and our aim is to bring city innovation to Derbyshire whilst retaining a countryside charm.
“This is the first major update in 10 years for the restaurant and we’re really excited for the launch of the Fork & Furrow.”
The White Hart Inn is serving food in its Orangery and Moorwood Suite restaurants until the renovations are complete.
Bookings can be made online here.
The White Hart Inn is part of the Moorwood Hotel Collection, which also runs the Horse and Jockey at Wessington, The Hurt Arms at Ambergate and The Canal Inn in Bullbridge.
