It's been many years since I've been here, and I'm glad the place didn't fail to delight as always. Great service, a wonderful menu and fab surroundings at good prices. The venison steak was delicious and well presented and the accompanying beers superb. Bakewell pud with custard was a great twist on the standard Bakewell tart and is well rwcommended.... More

Everything from start to finish was superb. When my husband and I arrived at Ladybower Inn on Friday 10th June at 9.10pm after racing the Castleton Fell Race, our food was ready as we had preordered our dinner as we knew we would be arriving after the restaurant closed. We had been in touch previously with a member of staff... More

Room was comfortable enough with plenty of space. Unfortunately though little is done to mask the smell of people's pets so there was a strong odour of dogs. The room also didn't look like it had been hoovered in some time and there was dog hair on the carpet Given it was only a place to rest my head for... More

Lovely stay overall. It is in an ideal location and the room had an amazing view. We are there for our evening meal and breakfast the following morning and both meals were amazing. The staff were friendly and enjoyed a laugh or two with us. Only slight grumble is the mattress wasn't very uncomfortable. It wasn't the best nights sleep.

We went for lunch at the Ladybower Inn yesterday. We had been regulars, (as in two or three trips a week for lunch for many years as we live very locally) up until the place changed hands last September?October. I expect there were changeover teething issues and the standard of the food definitely dropped last Autumn so we stopped going.... More
