The upper Goyt Valley between Whaley Bridge and Buxton is one of the most visited parts of the Peak District National Park. It is easy to see why. The surrounding gritstone ridges and moorland provide some classic Dark Peak hikes, the rocky outcrops at Windgather attract the climber, and a network of lanes and bridleways draw the cyclist and horse...

food seems quite nice but if you want a drink after ten pm you will be lucky as they like to shut up shop as soon as they can. They want this place to be a restaurant not a pub. Another nail in the coffin of the local community.

After spending a cold Sunday morning on the Goyt Valley moorland, 6 of us called in, on spec to get warm & be fed! They managed to provide us with a table and we all chose the Sunday Roast. Excellent food, good value and helpful service. Thank you

Not eaten here for a couple of years and it is under new ownership. Meal was excellent and the welcome was the same. The open fire was lovely and helped to create a homely atmosphere. Will return soon!!

My husband and myself stayed earlier this year at the Goyt Valley Camping Site next door in our touring caravan. In fact the new landlord had just moved into the pub that weekend. We were staying on the camp site with quite a few others who were booked to play a gig in Stalybridge on the Saturday night but we... More

A lovely pub/restaurant with a homely atmosphere. Staff were very polite and attentive. The sunday roast was one of the best I have ever had, and reasonably priced. Large car park and in excellent location in the Peak District. Highly Recommend, and hope to return soon.

We had a light lunch here today (10th Oct).I believe that these people have just taken over during the last couple of weeks. We were very impressed. The food was homemade and delicious! We had steak on ciabatta with salad and wedge chips. The salad was beautifully presented with attention to detail. Everywhere was spotless and the staff were friendly.... More
