An old friend and I met up for a reunion and couldn't have picked a better spot. The staff are friendly, professional and smart, the rooms are lovely and the food is beautiful good quality pub food (great breakfast too). From the pub, there appears to be several circular walks to do. We went on one taking us to Eyam,... More

Had 3 evening meals here whilst on holiday. All were cooked to perfection. All staff were attentive and friendly. Prices very reasonable. Views outside are fantastic and you can sit on a bench with a drink to enjoy. We highly recommend.

Why do pubs these days think that £5.25 is a reasonable price for 2 slices of brown bread and a small quantity of tuna mayonnaise even if they add a few green leaves and a small quantity of coleslaw? Also not impressed with service. We wanted to pay separately but were told to sort out a combined bill as itr... More

We stayed here with friends for the May bank holiday weekend the service was excellent - lovely friendly staff the accommodation is comfortable and clean and the food was very good. We had a great weekend despite the weather - the views and walks around the pub make it a great place to stay :)

I've stayed at this Inn twice during the past 10 years, the last time at the beginning of April 2014, and it hasn't changed much. The pub is in an amazing position on a ridge with fantastic views. The bar is quite ordinary and most of their business comes from serving meals, which are good, with very nice service, but... More

This is the third time we have eaten here and it was great. The views are wonderful, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the food was delicious - what more can I say! I cannot understand the previous negative reviews at all - are we talking about the same establishment?

Las we live locally we use this pub frequently and are very pleased with the recent refurbishment, it has brightened up the main area without losing the character the pub is famous for. I had the salmon from the specials board which was excellent, the sauce going superbly with the beautifully cooked fish. The service, as always was efficient, friendly... More

The Barrel is a country pub in the middle of the countryside and we have been going there for years. However, following a "refurbishment" (carpet and paint) the feel/atmosphere of the place has gone downhill. We arrived at 3pm for a late lunch and noticed that most of the tables had reserved notices but the place was mostly empty so... More

The food was fantastic, just a shame about the service! We booked a table for 8, when we arrived we were put on two separate tables of 4 face each others backs. When we ask politely to join the tables together to form (what we booked) a table of 8 the managers reaction was very rude. Quote "your all paying... More
