It's cold and snowy but a warm welcome at the Ashford Arms. The bar supports local ales Chatsworth Gold and Bakewell Best bitter both in great condition. Our order was taken by pleasant young staff offering a choice of three meats plus a choice of cooking grades on the beef. The meal was well presented and Robs (the chef) Yorkshires... More

The food was good, we opted for the Christmas fayre and had prawn cocktail to start followed by salmon. Both very good and the correct amount of food on your plate. Desert was disappointing. Staff not very attentive, quite disappointing Decor needs an urgent up date.

Having discovered this restaurant only in the past year, we have made many repeat visits. This is a beautiful pub in a beautiful village. The food has always been top notch and the service, friendly and efficient. Unfortunately, we were too late to book for Christmas Day dinner (fully booked by October with lengthy waiting list). We were however lucky... More

Ok if you want Christmas menu but forget the rest. Harrington chicken tough could not eat it. Cheese board expensive and very dismal. Complained to waitress but no apology from her or rest of staff. No response when emailed the Ashford Arms next day. What a shame.

Had Christmas lunch menu with my brother and his wife. The food was excellent and plentiful, the atmosphere was cosy and festive and the staff were lovely. It really put us in a festive mood and was good value. Really great and would go again and recommend to anyone.

Congratulations to the Ashford Arms for providing one of the best pub Christmas meals we've had. Even though we were booked in for the second sitting, and the restaurant had been absolutely packed for the first, the food and service we had was spot on. A nicely decorated table greeted our arrival providing a nice festive feel. There was a... More
