Visited here on a Friday, the fire was roaring which was nice. I must say I have high standards when it comes to eating out and scones (some places just don't get them right) I had a bacon and Stilton sandwich & it was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. The scones were also delicious and very good... More

Amazing views of the peaks from here, the staff are friendly and the food was very nice. It's gets extremely busy so you may have to wait for a table. I will definitely be returning,

Not dined here for a long time but the food was as delicious as ever. Service was good and it was nice and cosy sat by the open fire on a cold damp, foggy day! Although we didn't try and the cakes and puddings looked amazing. The sausage, cheese and red onion chutney baguette was delicious and the portions quite... More

I first reviewed this tearoom after it had been refurbished three years ago. Fortunately, I can say that it is still a great tearoom to visit in any season, although only open Thursdays to Sundays. We last called on a wintry afternoon and it was so warm and welcoming inside and the homemade cakes were delicious. In the autumn when... More

I've driven past this place loads but never been in. It was very inviting, cosy with a fire on and really homely. Light food was 5* as were drinks. Definitely will be back here again. Location is amazing. Only thing could be improved is service. However I think its nice being laidback it adds to the relaxed setting.

One of the well hidden gems of the peak district is the Peak View tearoom. It is situated on the A537 road between Buxton and Macclesfield just past the Cat and Fiddle pub. It is worth visiting for the views alone and is perfect if walking on the hills or sightseeing in the area. There is a wide selection of... More

We enjoyed a snack lunch a week before Christmas. The café was busy but we were fitted in and served reasonably quickly. We were warned that there would be a wait, but it wasn't as long as predicted. The food was well cooked and we enjoyed our meals. The waitresses were very cheerful and pleasant.

More than a tea room, a fantastic restaurant too! We held my partners 60th birthday celebrations here recently and had a private function. The menu was stunning, with a great selection, the food was fantastic. Gail and Philip and their staff went to so much trouble to ensure everything was as we wanted it, pre dinner drinks reception, birthday cake... More

Overlooking the sweeping Peak Park towards the Cheshire plain, the restaurant and tearoom is an ideal place to relax and unwind in a friendly atmosphere. In winter we always have a roaring fire and in summer you can sit outside and soak in the breathtaking views.
