This is our local and we love it. Great food, value with a really wide ranging menu from healthy meals to steaks and burgers. Most of all they have great staff particularly Alisha who is charming and efficient.

We didn't stay here but dropped in for a meal as cooking at home wasn't possible for a week. Prices in the restaurant and choices were average but good enough for an ordinary meal out.

Friendly staff. Family friendly. Excellent outside play area. The food was delicious. Rotisserie chicken - need I say more. Probably a good point to work from for a visit to explore the Peak District.

Nice welcome and pleasant surroundings. Very good value two course lunch deal. Pleasant and efficient service. All in all a worthwhile experience. We will return at the first opportunity and hopefully that will be sooner rather than later.
