May Gastro Short Break

May Gastro short break and Anis Louse Guest House, ChesterfieldChesterfield has more than it's share of award winning and unique restaurants. Here is a short break suggestion for all you gourmets out there....

Soulville Steakhouse  - Friday 6th May

Soulville Steakhouse restaurants recreate the spirit of the Motown era. With genuine Wurlitzer jukeboxes that are free to use, you can create the soundtrack of your night, as well as ordering from a selection of tremendous home-cooked American-style food.  

Each table is named after a soul singer, and has their biography on the table for you to read while we freshly prepare your meal.

The Chesterfield restaurant has been open for three and a half years and is situated in the historic Falcon Yard on the corner of South Street. It utilises an old bare brick building with large double wooden doors to the side. We understand it to be the original stables for the horse-drawn fire engines that were situated next door in what was the old Victorian fire station, which has now been replaced by the County Library.

The Old Post  – Saturday 7th May

The Old Post restaurant is located in the historic market town of Chesterfield, within easy walking distance of the town centre and the rail station and just 10 minutes drive from the eastern edge of the Peak District National Park. Rumoured to be the 3rd oldest building in Chesterfield after the Church of St Mary & All Saints and The Royal Oak Public House, part of the building dates back to the 15th century with the majority being completed in the 18th century. An old building full of history, the restaurant has been lovingly refurbished by Delia and Martin but has kept the focus on the original features such as the old beams and fireplace.  Dining at the Old Post is like taking a step into the past; guests are encouraged to have a ‘pew’ in the newly added bar, in the colder months the log burner is lit – hence the ‘Snug’ has been created.  Then, on to your table in the restaurant to enjoy the quality dishes created by Martin, the Chef Proprietor using (wherever possible) locally sourced produce, whilst enjoying the elegant but traditional surroundings (and, perhaps enjoying a glass or two of one of our wonderful wines!)

Part of the Post started life as a workers house on the Durrant Family Estate and has housed among other things a greengrocer, butcher, laundry and post office ~ hence the name “The Old Post”.  At some point in this history, 43 Holywell Street and 1 Durrant Road were joined together to form the building which now houses the restaurant. The building is featured as Holywell Post office in the anniversary stained glass window in the church of St Mary & All Saints. Donated by the people of Chesterfield in 1984 to commemorate the 750th anniversary of the church, the window depicts Chesterfield through the ages.

O-Tokuda – Sunday 8th May

O-Tokuda is an independent, family-run restaurant specialised in traditional yet authentic Japanese cuisine. We offer Sushi, Sashimi, Yakitori, Sumiyaki, among others.  Delicious Japanese food served up by a team of Japanese staff in the relaxing ambience, conveniently located in the town centre, we are just a stone’s throw away from the Crooked Spire.

Looking forward to May

Anis Louise Guest House - Looking Forwards to MayAs we approach May and the beginning of the busy period Chesterfield has some great events lined up.

There are lots of events and attractions for all the family over the May Bank Holiday weekend. Followed by the Chesterfield Area Walking Festival which is a very popular local event attracting people from throughout the country. Why not make a short break of it and use us as a base?

“Enjoy the Chesterfield area on foot, taking a stroll around pretty villages, looking at flowers, listening to birds and searching out dragonflies and butterflies. Take in some history, take a break for a coffee, or even a tour of a vineyard, or finish off with a pint at the local pub.

If you’re looking for a challenge, try the Chesterfield Round Walk, a 34 mile trek through the countryside that surrounds the town. Or brave the Beast of Bolsover on a 20 mile circular hike. If that sounds all too much take an evening stroll of 5 or 6 miles or a family ramble of 2 or 3 miles.


Most walks are free so there’s no excuse not to join us. All are led by a fully trained guide who knows the history, wildlife and the best countryside to walk through (as well as the best pubs to visit) in the beautiful Chesterfield landscape.”
