This is our first visit when since it has had new management and we were happy with our meal. The lunches were enjoyed by all after a short wait. The service was friendly. We'll be visiting again soon.

Wondered if this was the same pub we have visited once a week for the past few weeks as the revues are so mixed! First of all, this is the first time I have submitted a review of the Shady Oak since it changed management earlier in the year. We have found the new staff, generally two young ladies, friendly...

If visiting Beeston Castle, this is very close by and convenient. It is quite a small pub but has outside seating next to the canal. The food and drinks are quite standard but cooked well and at a reasonable price. It did take awhile for it to arrive but all were hot and good to eat.

Had a lovely one-night stay in this pretty area of the Peak District. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Our rooms were quite large, as were the bathrooms. Everything had just been redecorated so was very fresh. The towels were very fluffy! Also had a nice evening meal there, portions were huge; the only disappointment was breakfast. Very expensive...
