Great food and drink but less atmosphere

This village pub is large and feels more like a road side pub. It is a shame because the food is excellent(our steak and kidney pie had a lovely short crust top and lots of steak as well as kidney). The beer was good, the service was quick and polite and the price very reasonable. It was a shame... read more

Lovely food, with helpful staff. Well priced menu with a good selection on offer. We had a lovely evening there and would recommend it. Wednesdays is crazy steak night, with a 32oz steak on the menu.

We decided to eat Sunday dinner here as it was a short distance away from where we were staying on holiday. The traditional Sunday roast was on the menu. Two in our party had the beef, one had the pork and one the chicken. Service was polite and quick. Food arrived quickly, was hot and of a good portion size.... More

The Ashfood Arms is situated in Ashford in the Water, a picturesque village just outside of Bakewell. As a family we had been to the Ashford Arms previously and returned again last Saturday. We arrived at around 7 pm, the restaurant was busy but we were seated straight away (we had booked). Service throughout the meal was nice and friendly,... More
