On our way to the Cheshire Cheese,we walked past The Peaks and I thought it looked lovely through the window. Wooden floors, candles, old fashioned looking bar etc. On our way back from our meal, we went in here for a quick drink. There was live music so it was quite busy. It also smelt of wet dog...Maybe it was... More

Stayed in room 2 on a Saturday night and ate in the pub on the evening. Room was lovely! Very spacious and the four poster bed was so comfy! Staff were very friendly and welcoming - especially the cleaner and the chef! The food was good and the breakfast in the morning was fantastic! Only criticism would be the noise... More

We have been visiting Castleton for over 10 years now and have had many visits to The Peaks Inn. Some excellent, though in recent years it had started to be a bit grubby and generally sad and unloved looking. I've always loved this pub tho and on its last venture onto the market even tried to persuade my husband that... More

Are here in New Years day and had to say how lovely it is. The food is fabulous and great value for money. The staff are friendly and quick to serve you. We are a party of 6 and we all got served hot, delicious food quickly and we all left perfectly clean plates. Highly recommend this place

We visit Castleton twice a year, religiously,this is the first time we have visited this inn. On entering the Peak, we were very pleasantly surprised, it was a beautiful establishment, with gorgeous decorations.....everything was set out to look very Christmassy and it worked, well done. We had starters, soup and prawns which were both yummy; on reflection, maybe we shouldn't... More

My wife and I called in with our 2 dogs for a snack. I had a pint of Guinness which was very good and my wife had a pot of Earl Grey tea which she said was ok. We both had a ham sandwich, with crisps and a salad garnish, on what is called a wholemeal mini loaf. It was... More

Popped in for lunch in late October. Lovely ambiance, nice touches (proper candles on all the tables) great service, terrific menu, good prices and food beautifully cooked and presented. New owners who are doing everything right in my humble opinion. They deserve to succeed. Pay them a visit. You won't be disappointed! Chris Lightfoot

The Peaks is a lovely hotel, dog-friendly,well furnished and with lovely, welcoming staff. It's an ideal place to relax after walking the nearby hills or just spending an afternoon in this beautiful village. Its Achilles' Heel though is the food, at least at lunchtime. The menu is uninspiring and the beef and ale "casserole" I attempted was, to be euphemistic,... More

Just returned from great two night stay at The Peaks Inn over the bank holiday weekend. We stayed in room 4 which was a very clean and well presented en-suite. 4 poster king sized bed so the room was fairly large with high ceilings looking out onto the road. Tea / Coffee making facility in the room which was replenished... More

Ate here over the weekend. Pint was ok, food was dire. I ordered the fillet of sole stuffed with crab and prawn with veg. Sauce was as expected when you absolutely annihilate something in a microwave. Veg had been cooked so many times it was worse than I remember terrible school dinners being. The fish was laughable (either lidl or... More
