Can only comment on our experience of lunch midweek. Beer, wine and food mediocre. Webpage Menu prices need updating as it is more expensive that advertised by a couple of pounds on most items.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was very good and choice of Ales also very good. We had an issue with the main lights in...

I am glad you enjoyed the food and drink offering we have. King Regards

Before we set off for our weekend in Hartington, we were called by the Charles Cotton Hotel to say there had been a leak in our hotel room and that we would be staying next door in the B & B (Parsons Lodge). This turned out to be a blessing in disguise as can be read on my previous review...
