“Excellent food, excellent beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

I live in New Mills but have not been in the Soldier Dick due to it changing hands so often, but tried it tonight on the recommendation of a few people I know. And was surprisingly impressed, firstly I saw the chef who I have know for a good few years and he is very good secondary the pub was very busy which is a good sign from what it was. The food was very nice and a very good selection of real ales all at a very reasonable price. Will certainly be going there again.

Met friends here, for an evening meal and get together, as it was halfway between where they lived in Heywood and where we were staying in the Peak District. I picked it on the off chance and what a good choice I made! Very friendly atmosphere and service, good ales and great home made food. What more could you want. Also it's very easy to find (on A6) and with parking behind. Certainly be using it again when we are in the area.

This has got to be one of the friendliest pubs I have been in for quite some time! It has a very warm and welcoming atmosphere, yet it is incredibly relaxed and typical of a nice pub. With an open fireplace in the snug, a central bar, more seating down a few steps, and a wonderful menu, this place has everything that you could want!

We popped in here for some lunch and the menu is wonderful. It has pub classics such as lasagne, fish and chips and pie all intermingled with more unusual items such as a brie stuffed chicken breast and ribs. There is also an ever changing specials and dessert menu.

As an eating establishment this would be perfect for lunchtime or dinner sittings.

The service was excellent, we were left in peace to eat our meals and when it came to paying we were very very impressed! This is a great place, good value, great surroundings and excellent food!

The Soldier Dick is located on the A6 which runs through Furness Vale. There is easy access to the railway station and there is literally a bus stop located outside the front door for t

Absolutely loved this place, warm open fires and great traditional hand pulled ales. The food was outstanding both in terms of quality and presentation. I had the "mixed grill" which I must say would satisfy any large appetite and was only £13.95. Warm, welcoming staff complete the ambience and atmosphere to a tee. Full marks SOLDIER DICK, 10 outta 10 from me!
