Location and contact

Quaint countryside tea room set in the heart of the Peak District, welcoming muddy boots, cyclists and dogs! In our little tea room we serve our own blend of heavenly coffee, alongside a range of speciality teas, milk shakes and cold drinks. Pop in for a our freshly baked cheese scones, a cream tea, a jacket potato with home-cooked chilli con carne, or a sandwich with crisps and salad.

Stopped off after a ramble over Mam Tor. Menu is traditional cafe food but the sarnies are something else, especially the hot pork. Coffee is pretty good too.

I had the omelette which was very tasty, hubby had the full english breakfast which he said was a bit bland. The surroundings very nice, staff lovely too.
