Chatsworth estate, Farm shop butchery and Chatsworth game
Chatsworth park covers 1000 acres and is enclosed by a 15 km long dry stone wall and deer fence. It is home to red and fallow deer, sheep, cattle and many wild animals. The park at Chatsworth is a farmed, food-producing landscape. The grass you walk on is a crop grazed by sheep, cattle and deer. These offerings are brought to Pilsley via our traditional farm shop butchers who have a wealth of knowledge and experience. We are proud to be able to feature home produced offerings on our menus; including beef, lamb, venison, and pheasant strait from the estate.

No compromises. For the best depth of flavour, the cheeses are still made by hand on the farm, with most farmers using their own high-quality unpasteurised milk from a single herd of animals. Many of these farmers have less than 70 cows (the smallest producer has just 12!). The Courtyard Dairy’s cheeses are among the finest to be found anywhere in the world.
