Recommended to us by some locals so our expectations were high. The reality was less promising. Having had a large breakfast we just had four starters. The goujon were good, the Thai fishcakes OK if too much potato, the chicken liver parfait was grainy and the carrot and coriander soup was way way too sweet and was sent back. Service... More

Room was small and ensuite smelt. Arrived on Sunday for a 2 night stay only to find no... More

A group of us visited for Sunday lunch. The food was spot on, couldn't fault it. I chose a local beer, the Peak Ales Chatsworth Gold. I was charged an eye watering £4.05 a pint! I've paid far less in central London! 5* for the food but I will give just 3* in total as I don't appreciate being ripped... More

The room was small but comfortable and the food was splendid - not only did we have breakfast each morning but had an evening meal there on both nights - the choice was excellent and the quality and price spot on....

My wife and I have just returned from a four night mid-week stay at the Ashford Arms and were really pleased with it. Having read some reviews here before booking we asked for a quiet room, and were given room 1 (double plus single bed, although we only needed a double). Really comfortable, spacious and clean, great shower, exposed beams,... More
