We stayed there a two weeks ago. The cost of the room was £135, with breakfast, which I thought was way over priced. We were asked to share a table with strangers for breakfast, outrageous in my view, particularly as there were plenty tables available. We did not share, but I cannot understand why anyone would expect guests to share... More

Please can you call me on 01246 583258 to give me your details so I can look into this, as I have never know guests be asked to share a table with other guests. It is not acceptable & I need to find out who was in charge of that particular shift. So sorry we let you down! regards Helen More

Stayed in the hilltop room which was the most impressive room we have ever stayed in - exquisite furnishings, spotless & very welcoming. Staff very helpful & food excellent. Surrounded by wonderful countryside & of course lots to do on the Chatsworth estate. We shall certainly be returning.

Had lunch with a group of four and found the food to be disappointing. I've eaten previously several times and enjoyed the food as a cut above 'pub grub' but not yesterday. We paid top prices for something that any of the chain pubs could have served for half the price. I ordered 'Calves liver' @ £12 but I think... More

So sorry to hear that we were a crushing disappointment. I will make sure that the comments are passed on to the kitchen. We pride ourselves on providing local produce so hearing that the liver was tough & the gammon dry is not our usual standard. I can assure you that the only frozen veg that we serve is peas,...

We booked last minute for Sunday lunch. When we arrived the staff saw my wife was not too mobile and found a different table in the room on the right. The menu is varied and contained nearly everything we would have liked but chose the Sunday lunch special. This turned up after enough time to enjoy a pre-lunch drink and... More

Expectations were not that high, so what a pleasant Surprise to find a warm welcoming Inn. The food was not over the top but basic grub which everyone would enjoy. The room was also a big shock as it was just lovely. Great stat great food you should Not drive past it.

Well looked after and the rooms were well beautifully furnished, and found climbing the stairs to get into the cosy four poster bed. Breakfast served in the pub next door was good and the staff polite and helpful. The farm shop is just a short walk away and the views stunning. Thoroughly recommended place to stay.

It is not very often that you can stay in an Inn where mine host is a Duke. He doesn't pull the pints himself, he has an excellent management team especially the 'Manchester Lady'. I believe the hotel has been recently refurbished it definitely showed. Our room the Ewe was extremely comfortable and the ensuite shower room was very smart.... More
