Great friendly landlady and staff. All the staff made a fuss of our dog and were really welcoming. Great selection of local and more popular beers, and the food was great. A traditional pub menu but also some creative ala carte dishes. The wife said the fish and chips were some of the best she has had

My father, partner, 22 month old and myself popped in for some lunch after exploring nearby. The pub is very quaint and typically English in decor with exposed beams. The lunch menu wasn't incredibly varied and we just opted for sandwiches which were at best average to be honest. At least I can say I have been as I absolutely... More

After a long drive from Scotland we added an extra unnecessary 2 hours onto our trip trying to find this hotel. Unfortunately our navman took us to the wrong Pilsley and the booking made through Hotel Info had the wrong post code, so we were up the creek so to speak. Hard to believe there are 2 Pilsley's in the... More

Went for lunch today and it was great, as always. The service was fantastic and the prices are good for the quality of food served. Pilsley is a very pretty village with Chatsworth farm shop only a few hundred yards away from the Devonshire so if you are in the area I would recommend a visit.

We stayed on Saturday night in the room 'Ewe Close'. It was beautifully clean and very comfortable. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast, all of it to a very high standard. The staff were very welcoming and we had a great stay. Will definitely be back to a great hotel in beautiful Chatsworth.

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
