Booked via secret escapes for one night with meal and breakfast. No reception desk but check in handled at bar by very friendly staff, though carting bags through the pub and it's regulars slightly disconcerting. Room described as superior but was pokey but clean and obviously recently updated, stiflingly hot but not anyone's fault, could have done with a fan... More

A lovely hot summer afternoon and we decided to pop down to the Lawns for a pint. After sampling a couple of ice cold Strongbow Dark Fruit cider, we saw food being delivered to people outside and the fish and chips looked so inviting. We were not disappointed, the fish and chips were as tasty as they looked. Service, as... More

2 night short stay and base for trips into the Peak District. A great little hotel. Good but slightly small double room, well presented. Nice restaurant with excellent food, we both enjoyed a lovely Sunday roast despite a late afternoon arrival. Great staff but a special mention for The lovely Ingrid who sorted breakfast each morning.

The rooms are small but amazingly decorated, very modern but homely. The staff and especially the onwer Charles, were so friendly and helpful, always on hand always willing to... More

I had a steak salad. The dish was really tasty, but resembled a tiny weight watchers meal. There was a good portion of steak, but a small amount of salad. More like a side salad than a main. Pretty shocking for £13.99.

Made reservation for 8 plus high chair 6 weeks in advance for Mother's Day no mention of surcharge. Both the food and service were good no mention of surcharge on the menu when ordering so when we received the bill which had an £18 surcharge (10%) added to it, we were disappointed and at this point refused to pay. If... More

My husband and I stayed on a Saturday night whilst visiting relatives nearby. We booked a standard double and was allocated room 4. The bed was comfortable with nice quality linen and everything you would need for an overnight stay. The bathroom was very small and the shower door trim appeared stained but overall the rest of the room very... More

Arrived Friday afternoon to a warm and friendly welcome. After a quick coffee we were shown to our room, which had been recently refurbished to an excellent standard. The room was warm, cozy and nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed. The spacious en suit bathroom had also been refurbished to a high standard with a lovely modern shower, large... More
