This is a jewel of a place, nestled into the Derbyshire hillside with beautiful views across a valley. It is clean, comfortable, welcoming and had everything you could want in a country pub. There is a well kept outside area and a garden with a water feature at the back.
I stayed here one night whilst working in the area and I was impressed initially with the friendly and warm welcome which sought to assure that everything was just right. I then went on to be impressed all over again with the attention to detail in the room, which included a fruit bowl, bottled water, tea, coffee, biscuits and toiletries. I had pleasant views from my window and the bed was large and super comfy. They even turn off the waterfall.
I ate in the bar that evening where the menu was varied with additional specials of the day. I enjoyed an absolutely scrumptious vege chilli and then was unable to resist an indulgence of profiteroles. Prosecco by the glass was an additional treat. The bar was busy and it is clearly a well regarded place locally. In short, I loved it, I recommend it and what's even better I am lucky enough to be working in the area again over the next few weeks and won't be looking to go anywhere else.
My only issue was that the television went on the blink during the evening but it could easily have been a localised technical issue. Overall, double thumbs up.
