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.

This is a lovely pub in a very pretty village. The food was well priced and very tasty. I look forward to visiting in the summer.

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

This is my third visit to The Ashford Arms. Each time the food has been completely home cooked and excellent value for money. It is so popular that at weekends you need to book welll in advance. Portions are for those with a healthy appetite and variety of choice is excellent. The ambiance of the bar/restaurant is good and the... More

Have had a drink here on several occasions but not fanying the gourment 7 course at the Riverside we came here and we were not disappointed at all. Excellent service, freshly cooked food and reasonably priced drinks - about £35 for 2 including a ciuple of galsses of wine and a tip. Well done

we ate here as a party of 9 adults during a holiday in the Peak District. 7 of the party have eaten here several times before during breaks away, and said that they'd never had a bad meal, and that the steaks were great.

We eat at this restaraunt frequently and have never had a bad meal, the food is amazing and the staff are lovely. As it is very popular you do need to book but it is well worth a trip.
