Veggie options are limited and the butternut and walnut lasagne was disappointing the sauce wasn't very good tasted really processed. Also the garlic bread isn't upto much looks like...

Visited for morning coffee and afternoon meal as part of cycling trip. Very good service and excellent food. Real ale available although on the day was not at its best. Great chips and good size portions. Not the cheapest pub food but overall a great place to visit.

This is always worth the drive into the country to get a special lunch. The food is excellent, portions generous, the staff friendly. There's a really comfortable atmosphere in this pub. Despite the place being really busy the meals come out quickly. I hesitate to recommend our favourite pudding in case everyone else goes and eats it all before I...

Good value restaurant in the Peak District. Large portions, reasonably priced. Especially liked their twice cooked chips. Fluffy inside, crispy outside. Come with an empty stomach. Nice pub atmosphere.

Please book in advance or you will be disappointed. The choice on the menus is spot on and as for the deserts well I can...
