Visit Hope and you can dine like a lord at the Peak village’s latest café – opened last weekend by the former sous chef at Chatsworth House.
Café Adventure, previously the Blue Apple Gallery in Edale Road, is run by Billy Clegg and his partner Rachel Norman, also a catering industry professional. They are planning “an outdoorsy foody café – as they are our two loves in life!” Expect eat-in or take-away breakfast, lunch, cakes and pastries using local seasonal produce with bistro nights to come.
Billy has worked his way up the Chatsworth ranks over the last 16 years. Rachel also trained at Chatsworth, then worked as a baker in Sheffield before taking up a key role at the Eating House in Calver.
Open daily except Tues; www.cafeadventure.co.uk
