I don't enjoy writing poor reviews but this place is strange so feel potential visitors should be warned. The owner has installed a new carpet and is very precious about it. You have to wear plastic shoe covers to enter the cafe area. This was a first for us and probably should have been a a warning sign. The cafe itself is nicely furnished and has a pleasant feel. However after putting on the plastic shoe covers it was necessary to wash our hands. Sadly there was no soap in the toilet and despite asking three times no member of staff seemed able to resolve this simple problem. The cafe was not busy (maybe the shoe covers were putting people off) but the two staff members were somewhat flustered and struggled to get our order right. Tea was served without milk. The Derbyshire cream tea was served with Cornish cream and one of the scones was lovely, warm and fresh, whilst the other scone was dry and stale. The other cakes we had were not the freshest. Overall is was pretty poor experience. There are lovely places to eat in Castleton but from our experience this isn't one of them.
