“A Peak District institution!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

I've been coming here on and off for the past 20 years and can vouch that they do the best chip butties and pint mugs of tea in the area! Great place to come after (or during) a climb or a walk and of course it's above the Outside climbing/walking gear shop which is always worth a browse (and please support Peak District shops and buy something!)

The meals and cakes are also very good and there is also a useful children's menu. Service can be slow so not a place to go for a meal if you're in a rush. However, there are magazines, paintings and books to look at (for adults as well as kids) so not a disaster if you have to wait.

“Great food after a swim”

we go in here often after our regular swims at the pool. They do a wonderful menu. Very nice staff and very chatty. Food excellent and well priced. Couldn't wish for better after a swim

“Generous Cake Portions!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We stopped here for a quick drink and were tempted by the cakes. Had a lovely brownie which barely fitted on the plate, would have been half the size in most places! Good value for what you get although I think it gets very busy at peak times. Childrens menu available too which is good.

“Brillant”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

This is my daughter's review.

I enjoyed my visit as the service was quick and they have a variety of foods . I loved the chips and the hot chocolate was brilliant! You can bring your dog with you ( only into one part) and there is a bowl for them. The staff are friendly and the floor was clean ( considering how many dogs walk on it). I enjoyed visiting the Outside cafe and I will visit again!

“Unexpectedly good !”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Had a walk over burbage with the kids and wanted a quick no fuss bite to eat on a sunday lunchtime. Outside cafe was suggested so we gave it a whirl. Breakfasts had sadly finished at 11:30 (which is what I fancied) so I plumped for homemade chilli for about £ 6 and kept my expectations low.

However I had to say it was rather lovely. Obviously homecooked and a decent dish , with pleasant enough rice and a good salad too.

Kids had chip butty and sausage and chips and I can report the chips were pretty decent and the sausage was of a decent quality too.

Wife had cajun chicken burger (off the specials) and was also tasty and good enough value .

Certainly not haute cuisine but tremendous value and pretty tasty.

I will be back (especially now I know of the secret carpark outside has out the back - parking in Hathersage is a bloody nightmare normally).

Hathersage also has a really pleasant kids playground hidden away behind the outdoor swimming pool.
