A new restaurant opening in the village I currently live is always cause for celebration. For too long Glossop has been the home of take-aways, sandwich shops (which call themselves delis for some reason) and microwaved pub grub.
So it was pleasing to see Restaurant at 54 open for business today. The warm welcome we received for the opening Sunday lunch revealed that this is the latest enterprise from the people who used to run the the Bull’s Head at Tintwistle – including the same chef.
So far so good. Although it’s too early to carry out a proper review (you can still smell the paint) today’s menu certainly holds out promise.
We tucked into a very generous roast Derbyshire beef and a subtle salmon and scallops with thermidor sauce. Both were good. Well-cooked and well-seasoned.
They succeded in building a recipe for success at the pub, so good luck to them in this new venture. We’ll no doubt be back.
Restaurant at 54 is at 54 High Street West, Glossop. 01457 861054.
