Stopped by for a drink on our way home from walking. Excellent pub with open fires and friendly staff. We've eaten here before for lunch which was very good. The pub is very clean and I'm sure we will stay over in the Hotel in the near future. I would recommend for both drinks and food.

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, great food and set in one of the most beautiful parts of our great country. Myself and my gang of friends descended upon them in the busy month of June and we were treated royally - so much so that I stayed another night (although that may have had something to do with the almighty hangover...

We stayed between Christmas and new year and our family had a total of 4 rooms. All rooms were great. The pub had a great atmosphere, the beer was excellent and the food was hearty. Our father-in-law had an accident and was taken ill late at night and the staff were fantastic during the drama. The owners kindly didn't charge...

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend recently. The hotel is in the middle of the lovely village of Hayfield opposite the church. When entering the hotel you walk straight in to the bar area which is very pleasantly set up with wood-panelled walls and a log-fire. The bar is very well stocked with local ales, ciders, lagers...

What a great find!! I booked this last minute for an overnight stop before heading into Manchester. The pub was very busy but Steven quickly checked us in and took us to our lovely room. The room was large, very clean with traditional decoration and a four poster. Our only grumble was the shower pressure was terrible! We ate in...

We stayed here for two nights for a friends wedding at the beginning of August and weren't disappointed. Lovely village pub with rooms.

Very pleased with our stay. Idyllic location next to village cricket field and ideal for hill walking all around. Perfect for Kinder Scout, but this time our group of six did three other walks between 6 and 12 miles and 1300 to 2200 ft. Food was excellent pub food, even including "Derbyshire bacon" for breakfast. My congratulations to the pig!...

We had an extended stay over the Bank Holiday weekend at The 'Royal' whilst celebrating my Grandads 100th Birthday. We have been many many times over the years but never stayed.

Stayed one night while attending a nearby adding- the room was good - clean and with everything you need, breakfast was really yummy, staff friendly and accommodating. The only thing I would say - and this applies to all hotels - is please provide bath sheets instead of baths towels, they don't cost much more but are so much more...

Our friendly staff are on hand to provide a warm welcome and serve you traditional cask ales, fine wines and home cooked food. A magnet for locals, walkers and visitors alike, we also have five en-suite guest rooms, a dining room and large function room for private dinners, parties, meetings and other events.
