Stopped on our way out of peak district for late lunch. As some reviews noted by others, bit weird atmosphere (staff chatting to locals while serving others) - but food arrived very quickly - fish and chips was great. veggie burger was fantastic. sweet potato fries tasted great.

Booked to stay at Hathersage with a group of friends to walk and watch 6 nations rugby. Mainly because we had called here previously and watched football on the big screen and ate. We asked Friday when we arrived to make sure Rugby was being shown to be told it was for Southern Softies. Bar man was mildly rude and... More

We stayed a night at the Little John Hotel just before Christmas and the room was fantastic. Very modern with that vintage twist. It was a little cold when we entered, maybe this was because of the extremely high ceiling in the room, anyway, it seemed to warm up. Great bathroom and shower too. We went for a drink downstairs...

If you are not a local don't bother. Waited to be served as bar staff were busy talking, other customers stood in front of us whist we were trying to watch the sport on TV (there were plenty of seats for them). We drank up and left sharply never to return.

We have just come for lunch before heading home! Everyone tried something different from the menu, and all of it was delicious! I would recommend the fish!

Had a few meals here during my stay in the Hathersage area. Nice place to stop in grab a meal, fast and efficient service, food bought to your table with a smile. Reasonable pub grub.

We came here during a recent quick visit to Hathersage following a locals tip. The place was absolutely packed when we got there and struggled to get parked (the car park is not very big and the parking nearby is 1 hour max), but we got parked and went in to order our food. After fixing the table with a... More

It's been a few years since I've been here and it used to be a really great walkers pub. This time we were met by Mr Grumpy who served us quickly but by heck give customers a smile. We had a drink and went to another pub for something to eat so can't comment on the current food status. One... More
