Took advice from previous trip advisor guests and was not disappointed. First thing that I liked was I able to drive in and park, no hassle. (Saves having to go into a town or city). We hadn't reserved, but got a table ok. The menu...More

Approximately 10 minutes drive. Straight out on the A515 to Ashbourne and take the right hand turn sign posted to Crowdecote and Longnor. We are then approx 800 metres from the A515 just the other side of the little bridge.
