Completed a weeks tour of the UK by motorcycle staying in public B&B's every night. The stay at the ashford arms was as good as any others with regard to quality of accommodation, however two things spoilt the visit. Having arrived at 5pm I was bemused to find the pub all locked up. The signs said bar and restaurant shut... More

This is not the place to go if you want to have a nice evening with good food and good service. The staff are rude and the menu is uninspiring. There are many cosy and interesting places to eat. We were unfortunate to have stopped here. If you value your time and money don't bother to eat here.

What a shame - was really looking forward to a nice meal in pleasant surroundings. Unfortunately the level of service was poor. I understand the pub was busy but the landlord was unhelpful and dismissive. The young staff that served us were efficient and helpful but there wasn't enough of them. Dirty tables, table mats well past their best. Tables... More

I have eaten at the Ashford Arms several times and been very pleased, but this time was disappointed. I wondered if it was under new management, or a new chef. There was no '2 courses for £10' and thought this may be why the pub was half empty on a Friday lunchtime. My friends were satisfied with their meals (Hartington... More

We stayed two nights and were very pleased with value and comfort. The location is handy, and the food is good, especially breakfast. Some desserts a bit stodgy, but the lemon mousse was light. The cheese plate was disappointing: I don't like Stilton and was given just a large portion of bland cheddar and standard brie, no frills. All service... More

O.K. you get what you pay for, but at £65.00 per night per room (midweek) this was excellent value. Bottled water, biscuits, plenty of tea, coffee, all replenished each day. The bathroom was the smallest we have ever had but it served the purpose. The breakfast, cooked to order, was excellent. The evening meals, too, were excellent value. The Ashford... More

Dropped in for dinner on my own whilst staying nearby. Great menu, too much choice if anything. The chicken liver pate was amazing. Steak & Ale pie, very average - the lid looked and felt like it was made from plasterboard. Some staff were clearly disgruntled and talking about getting other jobs - not good. I didn't feel welcome which... More
