The hubby and I spent two recent nights here on a family weekend meet up. We have recently started staying at family run places as we prefer the welcome and to give support to small businesses - especially the Great British pubs which are a dying British institution! We got a lovely welcome for lunch and my mother who is... More

A good welcome when we arrived, was shown to the room which was off the pub itself old milking sheds converted into 9 rooms. The room was lovely and warm lovely comfortable bed, you can hear the traffic but not too bad. The only downside was the en - suite shower room could do with upgrading with a shower instead... More

My partner and I stayed here last night as a last minute opportunity. The room was bright and airy and very clean. Nice hot shower and comfortable bed. The staff were falling over themselves to be of assistance and the food in the pub was excellent. We will definitely return. Many thanks.

In my opinion the last few reviews are personal and should definately be ignored. Five of us stayed over the weekend and found it extremely pleasant. Yes there were a couple of glitches but they were handled with respect and courtesy. Lovely rooms, positioned just outside of the Inn which were very quiet and tastefully decorated. We found the owners... More

Don't stay in room 2 which is a twin room unless you would like a cold shower every morning and no hot water in the washbasin!! The unfriendly manager Kevin Sizer, patronisingly and reluctantly showed me how to use the shower which is smaller than a phone box and barked at me "did you move the dial" when I explained... More

Food was dry and had no taste which was disappointing then the chef came in the bar picking her nose and itching her bum which totally put me off aswell as her tattoos and greasy hair! Good for drinks not for food.

Wanted a couple of night break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life so decided to take a drive and see where we landed. We ended up in Matlock and after taking a walk around the village, we decided we would stay here. Looking for a place to stay at 4 o'clock in the afternoon we came across... More

Great find. We stayed for one night and ate dinner in the pub it was easily the best and cheapest meal we had in our 4 days short break. The staff are incredibly helpful and make you feel very welcome. This is a genuine proper pub with a coal fire and lots of atmosphere. We had a family room and... More

Nice warm very clean room with good bed. Seems as though a hay loft had been converted or other old building as rooms were separate from the pub. We stayed two nights and ate in the pub as the food was exceptionally good value for money. Choices varied and food was well presented. good breakfasts too. The shower was the... More
