The Perfect Venue for festive dining & celebrations

Why not give yourself an early Christmas gift this year with a festive meal at one of our superb restaurants?

On behalf of the management and staff, I would like to thank you for considering Van Dyk for your festive celebration. There are lots of reasons why you should choose Van Dyk this Christmas.

The beautiful 18th century building has a unique and memorable setting in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside.

What would the festive season be without scrumptious celebration meals? Our delicious menus are prepared by the Head Chef and his team, making imaginative and creative use of fresh local produce and seasonal ingredients.

We are committed to providing a quality dining experience, and the whole team will strive to provide the very best level of service and hospitality to you and your guests.

From festive lunches to our grand New Year’s Eve Ball, there’s sure to be an event which will appeal.

Our New Year’s Eve Ball will celebrate the passing of the old year to the traditional sound of Auld Lang Syne, congregating at midnight to welcome in the New Year.

No matter which event you choose, I am confident that you will have an amazing time. Please contact us on 01246 387 386 to speak with one of our events co-ordinators, or e-mail info@vandykcountryhotel.co.uk.

We’ll be delighted if you choose to celebrate at Van Dyk and we very much look forward to the opportunity of looking after you during the festive season.
