Lovely and very helpful staff. The owner Stef gave us a lift without question after we explained that all taxi firms had failed us. Comfortable and clean room with a great location for exploring Stanage Edge nearby. Highly recommended.

We stayed here back in April for two nights when we needed somewhere to stay so we could go to a christening in Sheffield and still have a base to enjoy the countryside and walk the dog, and I have only just got round to writing this review.
We arrived early but the landlady was more than happy to allow us into the room as it was ready, she made us and our dog feel extremely welcome. The room was a pleasant surprise, decorated nicely, clean and tidy. Our room was quiet and we were undisturbed on a night time.
The landlady was extremely helpful in directing us on walks from the pub and where we could exercise/toilet the dog. All staff were friendly and welcoming.
The cooked breakfast in the morning was lovely and a good way of fueling up before the day ahead, however, it would have been nice to have a bit more choice (cereals & jams etc for toast). The evening meals in the pub were plentiful, and if you expect pub grub that's what you get. The pub is extremely popular with locals and visitors and does get busy at times during the evenings. The dog was welcome in the bar area too which made life easier, plus she enjoyed all the fuss she received.
Needless to say we will definitely try and stay here again in the future.

I have just returned from a walking weekend with 8 pals. We stayed at the YHA in Hathersage and chose to eat at the Little John. We booked our table for 7.30 and arrived pretty much on time. We ordered pretty quickly and our food arrived promptly, piping hot and delicious.

My main course of steak and ale suet pudding was delicious, and had I not had a starter would have chosen a pud but I was far too full.

I have rated good as I haven't seen the rooms but our dining experience was fab, quick service, lovely food and fantastic value.

Well done, we'll definitely be back.

I have just returned from a weekend at this great b&b in Hathersage. This is the 3rd year that we have stayed here (party of 12). The rooms have been re-done and are all of a good standard for the price. Great breakfast included and always of a great quality. This is not a five star hotel but excellent value for money. Good size car park at the side of the hotel. Always made to feel welcome by Steph the owner.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are good I stayed in Little John but am told all of the rooms are of the same quali...

I have just returned from a weekend staying at the Little John. This is the second year that 8 of us have stayed for a weekend. We booked two Cottages to stay in and had a Faboulous time. We only had to walk into the Pub to receive such fanstacic meals and a great welcome. Stephanie the Landlady was more than helpful during our stay. The Chef went out of his way to accomadate us with a late Breakfast and Steph and Jade and the rest of the Staff were so so friendly and efficient we could not fault it.
I would recommend the Little John to anyone who wants to have a break and be fed well.
The accomodation was first class and the beds so comfy.

We have enjoyed our stay at LJ's very much. We stayed in the b&b which was clean & welcoming. The breakfasts were amazing & really set you up for a day walking. The b&b, bar & restaurant were more than happy to accommodate my two dogs. The staff were really lovely. We ate at LJ's every night as the food was great.

We will most definitely be re-booking later this year & have recommended to many others.

We have recently returned from a long weekend in the Little John Hotel and all we can say is "thank god" we didn't read the reviews before we went! Overall, we had an excellent time in this comfortable and well presented child and dog friendly hotel set in beautiful surroundings.The bar had a great and friendly atmosphere whilst all staff where all hardworking and couldn't do enough for you! The bar food and breakfasts were of a very good standard and quality and the bottles of wine even better!! We stayed in a room for one night and 3 nights in the Squires cottage( due to availability).All where warm, had hot water and was clean.The bar area was great with a pool table, wifi and sky tv. We are looking forward to our next visit already!
