“Tea Room comes up trumps "65 and not out!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Myself and my sister have just had the pleasure of holding a private "afternoon tea" to celebrate our parents 65th Wedding Anniversary at this venue.
It was absolutely wonderful!!!
The owner, Joanne, and her staff were marvellous and could not have done anymore to be as helpful and accommodating as possible.
They agreed to open specially for us on their official "day off" just so we could celebrate privately in style with family and friends on the actual day of the anniversary.
The food was plentiful and beautifully presented, the cakes and homemade scones were delicious and the tea and coffee, which was continually available throughout the afternoon, were served by the very pleasant staff that had volunteered to work on their days off! How good is that !
Joanne allowed us to tastefully decorate the venue as we choose in order to coordinate with the theme of the anniversary, "Blue Sapphire". This all helped in creating the ambience we wanted for our parents and in personalising the whole event,
The weather was perfect, the venue was perfect, the staff were wonderful, the views over the reservoir/valley were magnificent. It was a "truly magical day" for our parents.
Thank you to Joanne, James and all the staff in being instrumental in helping to create wonderful memories for our parents on a very Special Day, 65 years and not out !

Room Tip: If you need anything just ask! Joanne is extremely helpful

“A wonderful find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We found this small tea room by accident when we were travelling through North Derbyshire. The tea room has both indoor and outdoor seating, and has wonderful views of the valley and moors beyond.
We both had a chicken sandwich, which was deliciously fresh, packed with meat and came with a very generous side salad. Sandwiches were £4.50 each, but well worth it.
