Was travelling through this area when we saw this place..it looked inviting so we called in. A nice friendly welcome. We only wanted a drink and a lite bite....we shared a cheese and onion baguette...it came with a side salad. The bread was soft, cheese freshly grated...just what we wanted. The only negative for me personally was that dogs were... More

Lovely surroundings, my favourite wine in stock, 125ml measures available. We both had shepherds pie which was tasty tho a bit watery. Good vegetables. Friendly service. Will go again.

Had visited this fairly local pub on various 'special' occasions, a walking group Christmas dinner, Carvery Sunday lunch, and Friday fish and chip special, so thought on impulse we would try the standard menu. Quite busy on a Tuesday evening, and large portions so one course was plenty. Nice menu with good variety. Food freshly cooked to order, so not... More

I went with my family after a day's hiking in Peak District National Park. Food was great, atmosphere was also really friendly and family orientated. We had meals from main menu and they were all very good quality and plenty on each plate for hungry teenagers

Extensive menu of standard pub fare, well cooked. Good local beers. Reasonably priced. Cheerful and helpful service. Excellent location in Mappleton near Dovedale (you could walk). We went twice during our week's stay nearby. Were not disappointed second time around.

We had four lovely meals here, good size portions, lovely and hot. The belly pork was delicious. We enjoyed it so much ,we phoned to book for later in the week. On arrival we were told they did not have a booking for us and they were full! Very disappointing, fortunately we got a table in another restaurant.
