We had been hiking all day with our small dog in the Peaks District and wanted a place to have some hot tea that would allow our dog. We looked up this place and since it took dogs, we decided to try it. We walked in and at first we nervous, because there was a huge wedding going on, but... More

We ate with friends in the Bar. It was decent enough food. Not amazing, not terrible, but decent. Prices were okay. The restaurant food menu was much more expensive so I would hope that the restaurant food was much more outstanding for the prices. The location is fairly nice, on the way to Grindleford, but not a 'view' place.

Went for Saturday lunch, didn't seem that busy but did take a long time, an hour for our sandwiches to come, unfortunately another large group arrived as our food arrived and they were not pleasant to be near to. The staff did apologise and also only charged for small cream tea as they misunderstood the order.

I really enjoy coming here for family lunches - good value kids food and nice sandwiches or main meals for adults. I always end up going for the steak sandwich. I have also been here for dinner as well. Always welcoming and not too busy. Beer garden nice in Summer when no wedding on.

Not many places you can get a perfectly cooked rib eye roast, but this is one! Served medium rare, it was delicious. Trimmings were also great, particularly the braised red cabbage and buttered carrots. Service was brill, water and biscuits provided for the four legged guest. The Maynard shows others how Sundays should be done.
