About Us

Gallery, Café & Bistro

Stuart and Sarah are delighted to welcome you to their Cafe, Gallery & Bistro on the beautiful Chatsworth estate

Stuart and I are a husband and wife team that took over The old Smithy in 2015. Not only do we offer wonderful smiles, a warm welcome and wonderful smells from the kitchen, but we also give you plenty to see on the eye.

We would like to present to you ‘The House Of Ugly Fish’ artwork created by my father and stepmother. We have implemented this into the shop and restaurant area, and we have sold lots of beautiful pieces! Sarah’s father is currently moving his business, so stock from The Old Smithy is limited at present, however its full of lots of lovely gifts. We have also been given permission to open three nights a week, and this will possibly be in our longterm plan at The Old Smithy ( perhaps when the children have grown up!!)

If you have not entered The Old Smithy since we took it over, you might not have been aware, that there is a secret garden at the back of the building. This is something that we opened up to our customers when we took over, it has been a huge hit with our regulars. It has beautiful views looking over to the park across the way, with plenty of outdoor seating- We have intentions of making it more ‘child friendly’ next summer (2021)by bringing in a small play area for items such as tractors, slides and playhouses- ideal for parents who want to sit, relax and enjoy their coffee and cake, whilst their kids are happy and content in a safe environment!

We will always strive to move The Old Smithy forward, making sure we are always doing the very best we can!

We hope you are able to visit us very soon and enjoy what we have to offer you!
