Lovely food , great beer , great location . You have to go out of your way to find this gem of a pub but it is well worth the ceffort , get there early as it is very busy . Bed and breakfast available but not used so can't comment on this.

Nipped in here for a pint and a meal as I was staying at a B&B just up the road. Firstly the pub is located in a lovely area with spectacular views. Pleasant outdoor seating area and a nice touch of having a separate dog friendly room inside. Beer was good and meal was bloody gorgeous! I had meatballs and... More

Popped in for a quick bite after a busy day outside and chose the steak & ale pie. Streuth... I've not previously procured a pub pie of such prestigious proportions. Well made too. With generous meaty filling and a proper pastry crust attached to the dish, rather than the more typical hovering puff pastry monstrosity. Great beer tonight too -... More

A very warm and friendly welcome at this quaint old English pub. Excellent food, real ales, clean comfortable rooms and excellent service. Set in a quiet village in the heart of the rolling hills of Derbyshire.

We only stayed the night but we will definitely be returning. Fantastic food, we both had the Pie and the meat melted in our mouths. Great accommodation for being a dog friendly room. Our only complaint would be not having blackout curtains and the shower cubicle is small, but very powerful!

A speculative visit which proved to be very rewarding. Very much the 'local' atmosphere with ambience to match but one got that 'cosy' feeling. Ordering and payment at the bar but a carry-over arrangement was easily negotiated. Food helpings were enormous so dessert out of the question. Small dining room but very comfortable though approached by short flight of steep... More

Stayed for one night at the last minute in Jez and Karens lovely pub. Fantastic room with views to die for at the side of the pub. Had a lovely meal in a wonderful setting and enjoyed a few pints and bottle of wine in the bar area. Had a nice walk over the top to Castleton which took 45... More

Went with the family including 10 week old baby and had a lovely meal. Desperate Dans pie is amazing and the Salmon on the specials board was very tasty. Unfortunately my lasagne got missed on the original order but everybody was very apologetic and when it did arrive was excellent.

Stayed for 3 nights, room comfortable and warm and spotless. Breakfast good if slightly relaxed at 9.30 am. Evening meals in the pub very good hearty pub fare. Ideal base for waking holidays. Landlord very welcoming, would definitely visit again

Hats off to Karen and Jez, the owners of this pub/B&B. They have created a cosy, relaxed, very clean and welcoming B&B that is perfect for those wanting to explore the hills. The pub is a hidden gem too. Breakfast is large and tasty, lunches are wholesome and quick and dinner is proper honest pub grub (the signature Desperate Dan... More
