Wish this pub was now how it was 30 years ago haha. Friendly landlord, pleasant atmosphere, and delicious chicken curry. Sadly not.

This was our first visit and will certainly, shall not be the last. The pub/restaurant, beer, food and service could not be faulted. Just two problems, no cheese board and it is 25 minutes drive away!

Hello I use trip advisor as a bible for venturing out into new areas and loved the look and sound of this place so when we booked for my fathers birthday for the carvery I was rather excited. We had booked a table for all of us and after a little wait (well, twenty minutes after we had booked) we... More

The food at The Nettle is always of a good standard and the restaurant staff are better than your average pub. In reply to Del B the guy behind the bar is the manager and I must admit he is not the most welcoming landlord unless you are a local then he seems to be very cordial. Well worth a... More

Booked here for 8:30 on a Saturday evening, when we arrived there was no-one about other than the guy behind the bar. We ordered drinks and informed the barman that we had a table booked for 8:30 and were told to take a seat in the bar area and he would arrange for menu's to be sent over. We waited... More

First impressions were not good as we were left waiting at the unattended bar without any acknowledgement. We weren't informed that you can only sit in the bar area at lunchtimes and as some of the empty tables there had not been cleared, we opted to sit in the restaurant area with our drinks to peruse the menu. We then... More

We called in for lunch and found the whole experience very good. A lovey old traditional pub full of character with a warm log fire burning away and adding to the atmosphere. The meals we both had were nicely cooked and tasty. We will return,very soon and may even book overnight.

Lovely place. After one too many bad experiences at our previous regular haunt in the Ashover area we decided that it was time to look elsewhere. This is when we gave The Nettle a try. It's a lovely very traditional place. Friendly and welcoming but efficient atmosphere, great food and good service. We've been twice now with family and both... More

Ok so the decor is the authentic country pub cluttered look that's not my favourite, BUT I really do like this place. We've had the carvery a couple of times now and yes the potatoes are better than homemade. On Sunday we came pretty late for lunch and the vegetables were looking a bit sad and the waiter was insistent... More

I was taken to The Nettle by my son for my 60th birthday (6 in group), Sunday Carvery. We were greeted on arrival, offered drinks to be put on account then asked to wait in the bar area which was comfortable and as expected had a country atmosphere. After a short wait we were shown to our table and the... More
