It was a real shame as the Sir William looked to have it all. Great location, friendly staff and the menu looked appetizing. And there lies the problem! Bland and uninspired food. What a let down. The staff were very friendly and the setting was great but come on....get the food right.

I've been passing by this place for years of the way to Bakewell and finally decided to stop today. So had we did. There's plenty of parking around the back away from the road and a little oasis of a garden to sit in. We had a quick drink which wasnt cheap but very nice and we soaked up the...

Two night stay for three couples, combining a cycling and walking weekend. Very friendly hotel staff, great rooms and excellent food. The views off the terrace and beer garden are amazing. Spent two evenings in the bar, owner and locals very welcoming and friendly. Will be going back.

If I had the money I would snap this place up. It's in one of the best locations in the Peak. Beautiful building, garden, terrace views. Car park. Tourist hotspot. Lovely staff. So why was it empty on mothering Sunday? The food just doesn't match up. It's very basic pub food with an uninspiring menu. Frozen and fried. Could get...

Thank you for taking time to review the sir William Kate... Firstly let me ask a couple of questions What time were you at the sir William on Mother's Day? What did you eat ? The reason I ask these questions are that you state our menu is all fried or frozen. I feel I should point out the fact...

A one night stay that was so good. Good location and easy to find. Our big chocolate Labrador was made to feel very welcome and was allowed to be with us everywhere in the hotel. There are certain communal rooms where animals are prohibited which I totally agree with as not everyone wants to dine with animals but if you...

We stayed here for two nights because it was an ideal location for walks we wanted to do. We received a warm welcome from the owner Peter and we found all of the staff were accommodating. The double room we booked had a wonderful view. One small critique was the double bed blocked out the view when lying in bed....

We were also given 2 water bowls for them which was great. The food was amazing, really good value for money. I would...

Lovely owners- friendly and chatty and attentive. Very pleasant room, very clean and clearly newly refurbished. Lovely hot shower, great breakfast and evening meal. Large portions which is always appreciated! Great view from the eating area, especially in the morning.
