Ashford on the Water near Bakewell is a beautiful Villiage. Whilst there yesterday, my wife and I decided to take advantage of the two courses for £12 offer for lunch at the 3 star Riverside House. The setting looked idyllic in the autumn sunshine. Perhaps we should have chosen to eat outside, as inside was decidedly gloomy. The term waiting for God sprang to mind. Lunch was served in the conservatory, with no view whatsoever. The main dining rooms may have a view of the river, which would have been an improvement, but we were not given the choice. Lunch itself in our opinion, was very average, nothing to write home, or, tripadvisor about, but for £12 we would not have complained. The bill showed a bar cost of £16, which seemed a lot for what we had had. When I asked about it, I was told the lager, ( very ordinary ), was £6 per pint. I can not imagine where they got this price from. I can only hope they put the consderable profit towards a hotel face lift.
