Nice situation in an iconic Derbyshire village close to Chatsworth.Know its demographic targets and prices things accordingly!! Varied seated dining locations, from 'bar' style to modern trattoria style (new addition) dinig area. Service friendly and efficient, good selection of local draught real ales at the bar, but as someone has already pointed out, (my constant moan) London wine prices! Menu adventurous, pulling no punches when colourfully describing items on offer! " Locally shot estate pheasant e.g." Nice touches shown with an inventive selection of all courses. BUT why oh why do so many establishments think that serving soup on a slate or pies on a wooden board is appealing? If you order anything, ask on what your meal is going to be served, then take it from there.
For example,Steak and ale pie with a crust on, ought to be offered on a flat plate to enable any vegetables and gravy from the pie to mingle surely? Not on a wooden board.
Anyway, apart from that and the wine pricing, a once in a while place to visit, like The Nettle at Ashover nearby.
