Walked to Ashford in the water from Bakewell only a 30 minute walk next to the river. We only called in for one drink and wasn't eating but the smell of food in the air was a very good aroma

While staying in the area, we ate here for an evening meal. The food was good - pies and veg. The staff are friendly and attentive and the service quick.

Having eaten at the Ashford Arms many times over the years, we kept returning because of the fantastic food and prompt service. However, our past few visits have been slightly disappointing due to the bad service and staff changes. Although the food is still great, the service just lets it down. The manager never takes a familiar tone with us,... More

We called in without booking, plenty of tables available. Good choice of meals, including vegetarian options. Food was very good, as was the service. All in all a good experience.

Taking my wife out for a birthday drive we called in to The Ashford Arms for lunch. Its a couple of years since we last ate there, and the food is still good. There is a good winter warmer menu with 2 courses for about a tenner, which for real food is a great deal. The food was hot and... More

Came here last week on Tuesday night, was very quiet but we were welcomed in. We had 3 courses, all food was good. We weren't checked to see if the food was ok, or asked if we would like any more drinks. The place was clean and warm, would go back probably on a busier day as can see it... More

Been here quite a few times now and the food is always good, so decided to try the Christmas Fayre menu and booked a table for a group of 10 at the beginning of December. We were put in a room with just 2 big tables in it which was ideal. We ordered starters which were excellent. Our plates were... More

My husband & I stayed on Sunday night, 18th December 2016. After a full weekend of celebrating my 70th birthday with all the family, we decided on a quiet meal & night away. Having always wanted to visit the Ashford Arms, he decided to surprise me. We had a wonderful 3-course meal, slept in 4-poster bed & had a peaceful... More

Debbie and I stayed here Friday night and the whole experience was fantastic, the hotel was clean, the staff were very helpful and the evening meal was fantastic, (largest lamb shank I have ever seen). I would recommend this hotel.
