We have just got back from staying here for 4 days while exploring the area. Our room was fantastic with a very high 4 poster bed, I needed steps to climb up onto it. The on-suite was bigger than any I've had in this country. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We even got to have fresh milk on request... More

Stayed two nights on tour of UK. The accommodation was excellent and staff very friendly and helpful. Loved the four poster bed, very comfortable and high quality linen. Only problem was that I'm over six foot and some of the doors, reflection the age of the property, were low. Three quite painful bangs on my head taught me to bend... More

Ate and drank with friends. Great local ales, great locally sourced homemade food, fantastic atmosphere and very friendly staff and landlady. The setting is the definition of picturesque, set just a couple of miles from Chatsworth House.

My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of the month. After a lovely day wandering around the Peak District this country pub was exactly what I hoped it would be. Friendly and welcoming staff, stunning surroundings, beautiful accommodation and great tasting food. Exactly what we needed. I would definitely recommend the rooms in the annex....lots of attention to... More

This is an absolutely beautiful little B&B, it has obviously seen refurbishment in recent times and is very much up-to-date, luxurious and cozy. I loved staying here; I've travelled a fair deal around the world and this is among my highest rated and favourite places that I've stayed. Chatsworth House is a very short drive from here, if one rather... More

Absolutely wonderful staff; clean, stylish and comfortable facility; unique setting and the quintessential English village experience for our family. Room was beautiful, very warm and stylish with top quality furnishings. Amazing bathroom. We ate each night in the pub and loved it. Staff were really down-to-earth but very professional, really made our visit very special and made us feel so... More

Went for a meal for our 30th wedding anniversary, prawn cocktail over priced at over £7.00, no bread nor dressed at all. Pate was good though. Steak was tough, and burger dry. Home made fries not great either, tasted like they had been cooked in dirty oil. The chap who took our order made us feel uncomfortable when taking our... More

We arrived without a reservation (family of five; three children under 7) and despite most of the tables being reserved they managed to find us a table. The food was delicious without being pretentious and we all had a good meal with very efficient and pleasant service. Recommended.

Nice location and well fitted out bar and dining area.. Staff very helpful, but food overpriced, so is the beer and it was flat but tasted ok. Have been here several times before but it is now out of my price range.
