The welcome was warm and efficient. We had a room in the 'Farm'. Do not be put off that it is not part of the main inn, it is only a few yard away. The room was large, more of a Junior Suite with sofa and armchair in separate sitting area and a massive, well appointed bathroom. High quality tea,... More

I imagine this delightfully located village pub was once full of character, so it was disappointing to find the heart and soul of it has been ripped out and replaced with some bright architect's idea of modern decor. Functional yes, but about as memorable as a Tesco cafe. Our four poster bedroom could best be described as "compact" with no... More

As a family we booked three double rooms, one in the pub and two in the the farm house. We specifically booked a ground floor room for my parents in law due to mobility issues, however upon checking in we were told that they had double booked the ground floor room! The young man at the reception was very apologetic... More

We went for Dinner Two of the party went for the vegetarian sausages, they were tasteless and poor value To make up we had ice cream and were rewarded with 2 tiny scoops to make matters worse I had Bakewell tart which being so close to Bakewell should be good but it was all pastry and dry.

Stayed here for one night with friends when visiting nearby Chatsworth House. Firstly, let me say that it does have good points, a great location, friendly staff and decent food in the restaurant, although we weren't shown the "specials board" and I didn't notice it until breakfast the following morning. The breakfast was above average and the bedrooms were all... More

I specifically booked the room called 'Fold' as I hoped to enjoy the 'views over the Derbyshire countryside' as described on their website.

Very, very, very poor Sunday lunch! So bland! The cost is £12.95 not worth £3. In fact, I've had better in a pub chain! The drive to this place is tricky, so don't bother! You will be disappointed! Can't comment on the other dishes on the menu. 😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩
