A well prepared and simple bacon butty is a desirable item. Unfortunately, this isn't what I received. My bacon was barely cooked with large pieces of stringy fat. It's really not difficult to cook bacon properly. I'd also suggest that the tea pots are washed...More

Recently had lunch here whilst walking on the Tissington Trail. I had ham, eggs, and chips which was excellent. Never had so much ham on the plate. All produce is locally sourced. Nice tearoom with friendly staff.

They don't display their full menu only a couple of things on a blackboard with no prices shown, so it is no wonder the queue is long and gets tangled up with the toilet queue. They keep the menu hidden beside the till. The oatcakes...More

Dear HollyQuincey Thankyou for your review. I suspect you came on a busy day last week during our Well-Dressings Ceremony Week. The full A3 menu is fastened to the outside of the large green door so I am sorry that you did not see it....More

The place looks great and we were fooled into thinking this would be a nice place to eat. Unfortunately the ingredients are cheap and of very poor quality. We were caught out and definitely wouldn't return. Lot's of horrible chips being left at every table.
