We stayed in Parkside in the farmhouse to the side of the pub, which was great because we took our little Cairn terrier with us, it had easy access to a stretch of grass for a morning stroll and she settled straight in - the hotel even provided a dog chew for her delectation!. Anyway.....The room was lovely, clean and... More

I am told its a pub with rooms and not an hotel. Not sure why this is relevant but for some reason it has stuck with me and probably why it has a different feel between the bar/restaurant and the rooms. The first are much more rustic with a wholesome menu and good local beers, however the upstairs has been... More

We spent a wonderful weekend here for a kids-free post-Christmas treat and had a wonderful time. Comfortable rooms, good food and extremely helpful and friendly staff. Some excellent local beers too. Perfectly located as a base for exploring the Peak District including Chatsworth, Bakewell and plenty of excellent walking areas. Recommended.

Really enjoyed our stay in the recently converted accommodation across from the Inn.As previously the staff were always helpful and the food excellent. We enjoyed walking the Chatsworth estate and returning to the snug Inn for supper, which is offered from a varied menu of traditional fare

We stayed for one night as a birthday treat. It is relatively easy to find, conveniently situated opposite the Chatsworth Farm Shop. After an invigorating walk through the snow during the afternoon we relaxed by the extremely inviting log burner for a couple of drinks. We had booked a four poster room which was extremely romantic & situated in the... More

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,...
