“fantastic short break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

just got back the staff are amazing couldnt do enough for us, food fantastic, we were treated like friends, from the welcome on arrival to the handshake on leaving we felt at home, the rooms are clean we had fresh towels and tea coffee etc., every day its a charming proper pub/resturant no wonder it was full every evening, breakfast was all you could ask for choice was great and staff accommodating. thank you would go there again.

Stayed with a group of friends whilst on a walking weekend taking 6 of their rooms. The location was excellent however the Ashford Arms is in desperate need of an overhaul. The rooms were tired, TV's in 4 of the rooms didn't work properly, there appears no water pressure so the showers are next to useless and not all rooms have baths. Whilst the rooms are "cleaned" each day I would not recommend looking under the beds!The food in the restaurant is mixed - choice is excellent and good value however the staff do not know how to deal with a complaint and so choose to ignore any negative comment when they ask how the food was. Most sauces served are very bland. Breakfast was however excellent each morning although this is not served until 9. In comparison to other accommodation available this venue is definitely overpriced and none in the party will be returning

Pleasant venue, reasonable service, reasonable prices. Food OK but just lacks the wow factor. Had Thai fish cakes here - OK; had Thai fish cakes in a Thai restaurant later - wonderful! Trout was OK but just a bit bland. Also must bones removed but not all. Rather have it one way or the other.

In common with many eating places, every vegetarian dish consisted mainly of mushrooms. If you like vegetarian dishes but don't like mushrooms, don't go there.

Having said all this, the restaurant was very busy so so maybe I'm just being picky.

Stayed at the Ashford Arms for two nights ate there on the Saturday night the food was excellent and the staff were very friendly. On the Sunday we visited Chatsworth House which is well worth a visit if you are staying in the area. Breakfast on Sunday and Monday was very good and the bedroom was just what we needed for a weekend stay. Would recommend the Ashford Arms

We had a short 1 night break away with friends in this very picturesque village - very friendly welcome - excellent evening meal at reasonable prices with a decent choice of real ales and a tasty breakfast the next morning. My only negative observation was that the bedroom was a little 'tired' and need of some TLC to get it into shape - the over the bath shower was more like an over the bath dribble too! - apart from that we had a great nights sleep and all the staff were excellent - we would recommend

Visited Ashford Arms with my husband for Sunday lunch. Food was excellent, Staff extremely friendly and attentive and atmosphere warm. This is deservedly a very popular venue with lots of mixed parties of people. Will certainly visit again.
