The hotel looks unprepossessing but our meal was one of the best we had in Hathersage - excellently cooked liver, lots of vegetables which were not overdone, tasty panfried tuna and a good fresh salad. All served promptly with a smile and some good real ale. Unfortunately no room for a dessert!

Awful food unfortunately the service is even worse I live in the Peak District. Avoid this pub / restaurant dreadful does not come close.

Waited over 1 hour 20 minutes for food to be fobbed of and lied to by the landlord.

came here a couple of times - once evening for beer - we had to leave as it really is pretty poor. There were six of us and we all agreed that we had to go elasewhere in search of something better. I returned for breakfast to watch the Lions match - had a quite wonderful bacon sandich - v high quality - and very nice and pleasant service. So it is a 5 for the breakfast , 5 for service and a 2 for drinks = 3 out of 5.

Little John is more of a locals haunt than the other Hathersage hostelries but this didn't detract from the excellent meal that were we served with. We had a steak and a chicken burger both of which came with all the trimmings and proved to be delicious. My steak was done exactly as I asked - very rare - which is unusual as many so called good restaurants tend to over do steak no matter how you request it. The helpings bordered on the too generous side and we couldn't manage a pud! They offer daily specials and a very reasonably priced lunch time meal.
