I found this on the web. I needed a local B & B for a stay near my sister in Treswell. It was a very welcoming homely place and clean and comfortable. Food excellent i would even recommend locals use this lovely pub.

I have stayed at the moth and lantern several times as I work at a hospital nearby. The staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you and have always made me feel very welcome. I always book a single room but if a double is available the owners are generous enough to put me in it which they... More

We've had many trips to "the moth" and we wouldn't go anywhere else !! The staff are the friendliest ever - making you feel welcome the second you walk through the door. The food is tasty and VERY plentiful ! We have had weekends alone and in Groups of 100+ and it's been top notch every time. Can't rate this... More

I have just been staying at the moth and lantern and am quite horrified at the previous review from a lady from Manchester. I am a lone female working in the local area and have found the staff welcoming, friendly and the place is very homely. It is very fairly priced and one would not normally find a camp site... More

Went to the bike night last Thursday. The BBQ had just started, good choice of food, I had a cheesy bacon hot dog, sausage stuffed with cheese wrapped in bacon in a hot dog roll - it was delicious. Other food on offer was pulled pork, burgers, chicken drumsticks, fish & chips and curly fries, they sometimes have meat pie... More

Two of us stayed at The moth and lantern for 3 nights and it was very pleasant. The room had everything you need and was ensuite. It was comfortable and clean and the staff in the pub were very friendly. We didn't have breakfast because we were gone too early but the menu looked nice as you would expect. For... More
