We dropped in for Sunday lunch today to be greeted very warmly by a very helpful owner and he's staff. My husband and children had the Sunday roast while I had the vegetarian risotto we then had desserts, all of which was delicious. Our boys and my husband really raved about the carvery and I have to say the veggie... More

Somewhere we will definitely... More

I had lunch in this pub as part of a group of about 40 ramblers. Despite the number, our meals were served acceptably quickly and mine at least was very enjoyable. I even had a dessert, which I don't usually in pubs. It was a very warm day, but as I was driving I could unfortunately sample only one of... More

My wife and I make for the 'JT' a lot. It always has a nice, relaxing atmosphere (free of stupid, thumping, inappropriate music), and the food and beer are the best you're likely to find. Plenty of parking spaces, too.

Whenever we travel to Derby as a family of 5, we always stay at the JT. It's homely, clean, spacious, and is a wonderful environment. It is so relaxing in the countryside away from the hustle and noise of the town, and yet is only 15 minutes away from Derby. Being close to the A50 means Nottingham and Leicester are... More

I have not stayed here, so cannot comment on the accomodation, only the food experience within the pub. I have passed this place many times over the years, and been told the food, especially the hot beef cobs, was very good. After a lovely walk in the area we visited the pub for the hot beef cobs. When they arrived... More

We stayed as a couple in August 2014 as a surprise getaway for my girlfriend. It was lovely. Really nicely furnished cabin with everything you need. It's great to have a free selection of cereals, bead, eggs, tea & coffee etc. Food is available from the main pub and looks very popular. Unfortunately, we didn't make it in time to... More

For family reasons, we travel regularly from Lancashire to Buckinghamshire, and having started to use the upgraded A50 rather than M6/M6 toll, looked for somewhere to break for lunch. There are a couple of chain food pubs on or close to the road, but then we found this amazing pub with food - and its own brewery. Yes, you have... More

Having dropped off family members at East Midlands Airport, just 7 miles away, we headed out to this Inn for Sunday lunch after finding it on Tripadvisor. It was busy on our arrival, and were told that they were full. Think at this point we could have walked away as there was no offer of "would you like to wait... More

Beautiful setting. Old comfortable wooden beams and open fires (not in july though). Quaffable on site microbrewery real ale. Roast lunch every day and home made crumbles. Overlooking the river. What a place!
