We stopped off for lunch on the way to the Peak District, and everything was extremely good. Friendly staff, pleasant surroundings, lots of choice, massive portions (beware if you're eating dinner later!) Definitely recommend.

We dined here for lunch midweek. We were initially going to go to their competition however through reading reviews on Trip Advisor we changed our mind and dined here instead. Upon arrival the waitress was very unwelcoming and when we asked for a table of 3 we were made to feel like it was a real problem. We actually asked her if it was a problem we would go somewhere else. She quickly changed her tune and said she had a large party in the next room so we would have to wait but we were welcome to take a seat. We were seated and looked through the very extensive menu. The food arrived and all 3 meals were beautiful. Overall food was tasty, good quality and generous in portion size. It was just a shame that we weren't made to feel more welcome.

Had a meal here for my partners birthday with my sister & brother in law, lovely place in Tansley. Even catered for my partner who has dietary problems, nothing was too much trouble

Excellent menu, varied choice all served piping hot and more than adequate portions.

Definitely recommend this little gem.
