Lovely rambling coaching house - with plenty of rooms to split the diners from the drinkers. Some wonderful red cushioned bench seating.

Theakstons was in fine condition.

Locals pub that we found quite welcoming. We stopped for a meal. I had the barman's buttered chicken red curry, which is thoroughly recommended. Ales were Caledonian First Dawn, Thwaites Magic Sponge & Theakston Black Bull Bitter. Very nice 2 room pub just opposite the church.

Good beer. A bit insular in the evening - a local pub for local people...

The food was excellent although overpriced (good luck finding somewhere in this part of the Peak District that served reasonably priced food...)

It was OK, but could do better. The beer range was a bit limited. I had the Theakstons which was very good.

The food list is enormous, I can't help thinking that they'd do better to shorten it and focus on the quality. I thought the food was quite expensive as well.

Hmm, disappointing. Potentially this is quite a good pub but as it currently stands it is bereft of the facets that make a pub good. Very cold and unwelcoming landlord, poor atmostphere, outdated decor, smell of old chip fat in the air.

The pub itself is very spacious and the beer was perfectly drinkable. The food menu was lengthy and although we didn't eat there, it looked predictable but fine.

In the right hands this place could be a good place to drink but right now it's a bit of a disaster.

Attractive fom the outside, three separate old-fashioned rooms inside, all served from the central lobby bar. Friendly welcome, huge range of good cheap food and a couple of very decent ales on as well. Excellent stopping point when walking or cycling through village and surroundings.
