Arrived in terrible weather and stayed in their camping barn at the back of the pub. Very friendly service at bar and food was very tasty and arrived quickly considering how busy they were. Own bitter was also of a good standard!

Excellent pub just off the A515 south of Buxton. Wonderful baguettes, superb chips and great vegetarian risotto. Limited ale selection but the Doombar was perfect.

Not a posh pub (not meant as a criticism) but homely and welcoming. The food was excellent, service was good and the staff were friendly. My husband had the mixed grill, he can eat, and it was enough for him. Others had steaks and they...More
