The wood burner was roaring (it was raining outside) and we were greeted with a friendly hello and given a table near... More

We visited here after a nice walk in Dovedale to work up an appetite. Choice of 2 roasts served by the chef then help yourself veggies, stuffing and Yorkies that were all nice and hot. Nicest carvery I've had for a long time. We'll be back when we do another walk.

We popped in here for some food and drinks after a long day of walking. They have a good selection of drinks, including some local ales. The black pudding fritters were yummy!

Fantastic carvery one of the best I've had and great value too. Washed down with a pint of Swift Nick to make a perfect end to our walk in Dovedale. Very friendly and helpful staff.
