Me and my partner stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting Alton Towers. It is a bit of a distance (approx 30 mins) but definitely worth it.
The B&B is located approx. 7 miles outside of Buxton in the middle of the Peak District and offers fantastic views in a secluded location. It is very good value for money and offers a very comfortable and different type of accommodation to the usual 'chain' hotel.
We arrived on the Wednesday evening after having driven up to Alton Towers that morning and then spending the day at the theme park. Take note, the pub is not open on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, something we had missed when booking it originally. We were met by a note giving us a phone number to call where we then spoke to the owner who instructed us how to get into the room. All a bit odd as a first impression especially after a long day. Once we got in however the room was lovely, very clean and well decorated. We made our way to a pub down the road which served great food.
The following evening we ate at the Jug & Glass Inn as it was then open, the food was reasonably priced and there was a good selection to choose from. The breakfast was also good although we ended up only having it on the second morning as it was only served from 8.30 in the morning and we wanted to get going earlier in the morning in order to get a full day in.
Overall we had a very pleasant stay at the Jug & Glass Inn, if it had not been for the bizarre arrival circumstances and the late serving of breakfast I would be giving it 5 stars.
