Very nice place. The wedding breakfast was very well prepared and presented. A bit clinical. The beer? Don't look for real ale experience. Would have to stay longer to be more objective. The bride and groom spoke very highly as did some of the wedding guests who stayed there.

We chose this restaurant on a bit of a whim as there weren't many other restaurants close to our hotel. We had we passed it on the way to a walk and the building looked nice so thought we would give it a try that evening. When we arrived we were shown to a beautiful lounge where we were handed...

Booked an overnight stay at this hotel, which was advertised as luxury boutique with award winning food on Peakdistrictonline. I booked a superior double room. The room was very spacious. That's the only positive thing I can say about it. My room overlooked a road so was noisy in the morning, not expected for a superior room. The decor was... More

It must be +10 yrs since I last visited The Maynard. On this occasion it was for Sunday Lunch eating in the Bar as we brought our dog out for an outing too.

The food here is excellent and of high quality. We have dined at The Maynard on numerous occasions, usually in the pub part. My only criticism is that the pub area has no ambience whatsoever, is quite stark with bright lighting and uncomfortable table and chairs. Could do with a bit of a makeover and so e decent lighting. But... More

Lovely lounge and dining room. We were given a table by the window which overlooked the pretty garden. We were underwhelmed by the starters, which were just average. However the beef made up for this and the gravy was really tasty and flavoursome. Desserts were really good.
