We were also here on bank hol Monday and had a similar experience. The special beer had run out. We were given the lunch time menu which had a good range of "light" meals of sandwiches, baked potatoes, omelettes etc but there were only two options on the specials board. I ordered ribs which were sold out so ended up... More

Firstly, the pub, which is under new ownership, is a traditional, comfy pub with great views on a clear day across the valley towards Taxal Edge and a good call after walking in the area. Unfortunately when we were there on Bank Holiday Monday, the weather was atrocious. The choice of beers, from the Marstons stable, was a bit limited,... More

Had a lovely lunch today at the Shady. Simple home cooked food with great customer service from Phil. Well worth a visit, I had a chicken ceasar salad and hubby had a burger. Good fresh food. Give it a try. Used to only be able to take dogs in the small room in the left but can now go anywhere,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our break at The Shady Oak. Beautiful pub and scenery, excellent food and service. It's such a shame that Craig and Sue are moving on to pastures new. We wish them all the luck in their new venture and would definitely recommend their next establishment. Such a lovely and friendly couple.

We chanced upon this pub onn a very wet bank holiday weekend. The views were lovely, despite the rain and cloud. We ate, fish and chips and pie and chips. Both very nice. The chips weren't much to write home about but they were ok. Nice welcoming atmosphere and would go back if in the area again.

Visited the Shady Oak again today (15 April 2014) and once again we had two superb main courses. The atmosphere in the pub is very relaxing and the members of staff are usually welcoming and helpful. Whatever you choose from the starters, main course or dessert will be hot, well presented and delicious.Try to save room for dessert, the home... More

The first thing you feel when you walk through the door and approach the bar is that the landlady doesn't like you. The second thing you feel after asking for a drink is that the landlady prefers the content of her laptop to speaking to you. In fact the landlady should lock the door and deter all visitors to the... More
