I have a long story to tell but just take it from me this place should not be open. It is an embarrassment to Castleton and the Peak District National Park. Somebody local please start a petition to close it down, it is that bad. It will drive visitors to the village away. I am upset and disgusted by it.

£3.95 for a Christmas Scone, that is a Scone with no jam or cream, just butter. Tea and Coffee with mouldy milk. Total £7.95 Scary experience.

A unique experience I wouldn't have wanted to miss. A great story to tell! Wandering through the village we spotted a sign for the 'Hidden café' and thought we would try and find it. The name was intriguing and intrigue is what we got. This is not Starbucks or any of the other perfect chocolate box tearooms in the local... More

Having read these reviews we decided to visit. Sure enough, no words can prepare you for the unique step into what is definitely the worst tea room in england. Peer through the smoggy atmosphere and be greeted by a deralict downstairs junk shop, Dusty old dolls houses,a staring stag, and a collection of miniature Christmas houses. Hot chocolates fiercely pushed,... More

Don't even bother a horrible experience! Just got told to leave before being served because we wanted only tea and scones!

Having arrived to early for going to Treak Cliff Cavern we decided have a drink and bite to eat and found this lovely coffee shop. As soon as we walked in the door he hollered ah a Happy New Year, he had a good sense of humour which you have to understand to find funny and we did. He reminded... More

Shockingly rude,and dirty little man that thought he was a 'card'. Reviled by other business owners in the village and considered an embarrassing 'grasper'. BEWARE!

After visiting Peak Cavern we found the tearoom and went in for something to eat. We found Mike to be polite and served us well. My husband had steak pie and I had spaghetti bolognese which was served hot. We did not find any problem and had quite a conversation with Mike who we found interesting.He was a bit on... More
