Busy little place, lovely welcoming staff and a good food selection; Gordon Ramsey tells businesses to keep selections limited and they do this whilst maintaining a good selection - well done; our first visit to Buxton and “we’ll be back” !

We got off the plane in Manchester and drove through Buxton, looking for our first British pub. Found. Local beer. Friendly locals. And great fish and chips with mushy peas. We are in the U.K.!!!!!
