Visited as a large family November 2018. We had the Sunday lunch and all dishes were good and very good value. Wine was reasonable and the service efficient. The pub managed our large table well.

This pub is located in the lovely little village Ashford in the Water in the Peak District. On entering it's quite dark as decor is dated with dark wood panelling and exposed brick. There is quite a large dining area and outside seating. The menu...More
