I went for a meal with two friends on Saturday 25th. We were lucky to get a last minute booking at this busy pub. The atmosphere was lovely as we walked through the door and the bar staff and waiters were friendly and attentive. Sadly the main meals were all slightly disappointing. I opted for chilli which was a bit... More

We have been several times to this lovely friendly pub. Never been disappointed by the food. My husband loves the mixed grill and the homemade chips. Our daughter loves the braised steak just like your Mum makes..

Dropped by here after climbing for our usual post exercise pint. We wished we had stayed for longer as it was a lovely place. The beer was fantastic and the food from what we saw looked good, we will definitely be back at some point to make a night of it!

It's difficult to find fault with this pub. It's a good, old-school, pub complete with horse-brasses. The atmos is warm, friendly, calm and quiet enough to have a conversation. The young staff are sweet, helpful and friend as well as being focussed, active and busy. NOT the sort of place where the staff haven't woken up yet.....I think you know... More

We arrived 45 minutes early they took our order of garlic mushrooms to share for starter and we both ordered a steak. The mushrooms... More

Located at the foot of The Roaches and in the heart of the Peak District National Park it is an ideal base for walking, climbing and cycling or simply a beautiful backdrop for drink and a bite to eat.We pride ourselves on providing a friendly atmosphere for you to enjoy a relaxed drink and great home cooked food.We have a traditional bar lounge, large dining area, separate TV room and a pool room with our hikers bar (muddy boots & dogs welcome!). Weather permitting we have patio areas at the front and at the rear of the pub. We also have a function room and restaurant and for those who want to stay a little longer we even have a self contained, fully equipped, holiday flat which sleeps up to 4 people.Our extensive menu offers something for all tastes, whether you’re looking for a home made curry or chilli con carne or a more traditional choice of steaks or beer battered haddock (made with our own real ale). We offer a variety of meals on our specials board each day and we do a traditional roast dinner every Sunday lunchtime. We are also really excited to offer the unique, healthy and interactive HOT ROCK dining experience.We offer a wide range of draft and bottled beer. With bitters, lagers and ciders to suit all tastes, plus three cask ales, at least one of which is always from a local brewery.With over 30 different spirits, an extensive wine list and a good variety of soft drinks, you will never be short of choice at Ye Olde Rock Inn.We also offer a wide range of hot drinks as well so if you need warming up after a good walk on the Roaches on a cold winters day, fancy a nice afternoon coffee and cake, or just want to finish off your meal with an espresso or liqueur coffee, we have just what you’re looking for.
