We left without sitting down because we waited and waited for the serving staff to greet us and show us to a table, But none of them did. Just ignored us completely, even walked around us, eyes down. After some minutes we gave up and walked out. The food may be good, but serious attention needs to be given to... More

Staff very good, Good selection off menu at reasonable price, nice selection on sweet board Service was a bit slow due staff being late ,but soon made up the time when they arrived. Not the first time we have been here and it wont be the last.

We have visited many times for Sunday lunch and have always been delighted with the experience. Helpful swift service. Wonderful food and plenty of it. Great beer and reasonably priced. We will continue to go there each time I visit home in Chesterfield.

We were on holiday looking for a good pub meal for our last night and chose this as it was close to our rented ottage. We were not disappointed. We booked ahead as it was a Friday night and the venue was quite full when we arrived at 7. The Manager did the meet and greet and was really welcoming... More

We booked and visited with a large family group for a late Sunday lunch on a lovely day. The decor was very traditional and a little dated and the Sunday menu is a choice of traditional roasts rather than a full selection. The service and food were ok, not exceptional, at an average price. It may be that we were... More

Family get together at the ashford arms . Obviously a very popular spot glad we booked . Plenty of seating in the bar , restaurant and a conservatory area with a lovely beer garden . Busy evening pushed the minimal staff to the limit hence the service was a little slow, we had to hint to get table cleared and... More

The food very good and my Wife reckons it was the best steak she has ever had especially as after the Waitress had taken the order the Chef sent a message out to make sure that it was cooked exactly as she...
