Lovely local pub!

My husband and I had returned to the UK after 30 years to revisit our favorite spots, Much has changed of course, but this pub was a standout on our visit for qualities that are timeless. Becky, the landlady, is the heart and soul of this charming local pub that makes you feel welcome as soon as... read more

Locally source meat, which was cooked to perfection. You didnt need the steak knife to cut it, the staff and local people welcome you. A verygood value meal which we all enjoyed.

Visited here for Sunday Lunch with my parents. Good roast dinner that came in two sizes, and a very good selection of puddings. Nothing fancy, but a standard Sunday lunch done well. Friendly bar staff and a cosy atmosphere.

I know trip advisor is subjective so I should understand all the 5 stars given to this pub but I don't. We had a very average meal here. I believe it is more of a local pub and that if you are known, you would have perhaps appreciated it more.

The Sycamore Pub was wonderful on a bitterly cold winter night. Their food really hit the spot, and their beer was very well appreciated as well. The staff were super friendly, giving good advice on local beer to try out. We were the first patrons of the evening, but it got quite busy pretty soon after - but they were... More

Last minute decision to dine out so husband called around at lunchtime to book a table for that evening. Its a great little cosy pub and just ask before you arrive if you can bring the four legged member of the family they usually get a little treat from the people behind the bar. I had the local gammon egg,... More

Whilst visiting the area popped in here for a meal. The service was friendly and drinks served well. Plenty of food options available; the pie I opted for was a decent portion, chips fresh and hot, peas cooked well. The pie was a little overcooked but tasty and moist. Decent quality pub food. Would happily return.

Myself and a party of 12 friends and 2 small children came for lunch today after reading reviews and looking for somewhere to eat as we were staying in the local area! It did not disappoint; believe what you read on here! The owner/chef was fantastically accommodating of such a large party at short notice on a Sunday and after... More

We booked a table for 12, on a Sunday, with just two hours notice. Due to our party size the owner, very kindly, opened up the normal menu for us, as well as the regular Sunday roast dinner. Food was fantastic, genuine, home made and served in extremely generous portions - perfect for a windy Sunday in the Peaks (....... More

Initial appearance makes you want to drive past and not go in- it's certainly not the most welcoming outside BUT once inside the staff are brilliant and the food truly is home from home cooking! They accommodated a table of 12 of us at late notice, opened their full menu up and reserved us some roasts! 6 roasts, 4 pies,... More
