Spent 3 nights here for the Bank Holiday weekend and although the weather was awful the friendly warmth of the Bowling Green made up for it. Again we cannot fault Jez, Karen, Milas and Jas plus the waitress girls and cooking staff. Nothing was too much trouble, they were all very friendly and you soon feel like you are down... More

Booked on the spur of the moment & travelled the next day. Special deal for two including evening meal, bed & breakfast. This place is a hidden gem in the Hope Valley - away from the obvious Castleton crowds up the road. Very friendly & welcoming, log fire, reserved table & comfortable bedroom. Huge meals, which after a day walking... More

Booked on the spur of the moment- Ye Old Bowling Green mainly because it was dog friendly. The atmosphere is great of an evening. Room basic, but comfortable, real value for money and we were made very welcome. Food excellent and loads of it for the money. Breakfast a must, but the best thing is the location. If you love...

A group of us stayed for one night for B&B and evening meal. Overall there weren't any complaints about the food or rooms. I would rate our experience as Good, although the trip advisor options jump from Average To Very Good. The interior did look a little 'dated', but we thought it had a homely ambience. The staff were very... More

We were looking for somewhere to have lunch whilst visiting the Hope valley area and Googled pubs in this area and found this inn. Navigated up a very steep hill and very narrow road and parked up and went in. The decor was very tired and dated but received a warm welcome from the landlord and had a look at... More

Me and my wife stopped here for a pub lunch one Saturday in May. It wasn't the nicest day so we stayed inside to eat. Unfortunately the decor inside and the table and the table cloth were all old and dated. The food came out and it looked and tasted like everything had been microwaved. Maybe my expectations were too... More

Our stay at the pub was great. Couldnt fault anything. Room a good size and our dog was able to come aswell. It was very clean, had a large bed, plus everything you need for a very comfortable holiday - including daily biscuits. The breakfasts were fantastic, with such a choice and so much we didnt need lunch. The best... More
