Best tea room in Derbyshire

Halfway through a long walk we nipped in here for tea and cake. Definitely the best carrot cake I've ever had. I would also make a point of saying how excellent the staff where. Great friendly service with a smile. Will return :-)

Tea and a toasted tea cake in the garden after a walk from Bakewell. Lovely pot of tea large enough for two refills. Good sized tea cake with plenty of butter. 3 chickens in the garden hoover up the crumbs under tables and chat to guests. Staff are friendly and helpful. Lovely.

What a delightful little tea room....a shame we only discovered it on our last day in the Peak District. A pot of tea for two provided 8 cups of tea! Well we managed to get through three each! Excellent value. We had some apple tart too which was delicious. The menu is quite extensive covering everything from a full breakfast... More

My two and a half year old daughter needed the loo and I popped into the tearoom on the off chance she could use theirs. The lady there kindly said she could and then we felt the need to buy something from the shop as a thank you for helping us out. Another lady kindly gave us a child's ice-cream... More

Called in for a coffee and ended up having lunch as it looked so good. We had poached salmon & salad, bacon & goats cheese salad, both of which were excellent. We eat in the garden watching the baby chicks run around their pen. Lovely atmosphere and efficient service plus beautiful village - a find!

What a shame to come to a tea room that cannot produce a decent scone! We called in yesterday Monday 27th July, after a day out in the Peaks. The cakes looked lovely ,so we debated on the choice of scones/cake with tea. There was plenty of tea , but the scones were small, tasteless, hard and doughy. The cake... More

We had a quick drink in the garden on a sunny afternoon. The food looked ok but the entertainment was provided by the Silkie chickens roaming free in the garden! They were very comical.

As the only tea room in town, they really should be able to do better. Upon entering we were "greeted" by a waitress who looked up from her magazine to tell us to go through into the tea room. Orders had to be given - and paid for - at the counter where said waitress continued reading her magazine. The... More
