Ordered steak and ale suet pudding which was sub par and veggie option of battered fried sweet and sour vegetables made my partner ill. Absolutely terrible. Worst meal we've had, and was the start of our anniversary trip away (and first introduction to Peak District!) Would strongly advise to never go.

A warm and welcoming pub after being out in the hills. Has always had a good atmosphere when I've arrived tired after another adventure. The usual dishes you'd expect to be able to get at this kind of pub, served quickly and efficiently. Beer, hot food, soups, lots of seating, lots of outdoor types, in the centre of Hathersage. Exactly... More

Stayed here for a weekend whilst visiting Hathersage. Room provided what I needed, good location, decent bar, and the full english included in the price was a welcome sight seeing as I were trekking the Peak District on both days. One thing that may be of benefit going forward is trying to extend the cloud or Wifi connector to the... More

A friendly local pub that serves a range of alcoholic beverages at sensible prices. The language is pretty fruity, and if you mess them about I'm sure they'll tell you where to go. I assume that those who've written terrible reviews have never been to a real pub before.

We stayed here on a Saturday night, although there was a private party on they were still happy to help and all staff were smiling. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the beds were so comfy! I would stay here again and would recommend for others to stay here too. This hotel is dog friendly and were great with ours,... More

Stopped on our way out of peak district for late lunch. As some reviews noted by others, bit weird atmosphere (staff chatting to locals while serving others) - but food arrived very quickly - fish and chips was great. veggie burger was fantastic. sweet potato fries tasted great.
