I have been coming to Grindleford Station Café on and off for over 30 years and it never disappoints - with steaming pint mugs of tea or coffee and hearty fry-ups with generous helpings at reasonable prices. It is a great location for exploring Padley Gorge with its ancient woodland, all within a surprisingly few miles of Sheffield City Centre.... More

We stopped here for a quick breakfast while out and about, I hadn't been for about 20 years and it looks just about the same. The portions are fairly big, but I'm not sure about the quality of the food, it certainly wasn't Heinz baked beans that were on offer. But a hearty food and breakfast before a day's walk... More

Like most people we called here to refuel whilst walking. Great selection of food and great coffee in a mug. Dogs welcome on the terrace or under cover in the outdoor shed. What you see is what you get!.........lovely

My friend and I walked down from the National trust property at Longshaw Estate. This cafe was a welcome respite and such good value. I have never seen tea served in 1 pint mugs before! We stayed outside but you could have gone inside ad there was plenty of room. One minor criticism the toilet area could be cleaner but... More

This was the 2nd time we have visited Grindleford Station Cafe this time we went for breakfast and wow portion size was extremely generous, service was brilliant. The staff were very friendly and its so nice to see how they have kept some original features from when it was used as a station waiting room. We have previously been for... More

Doing a mini tour of this part of Derbyshire near Chatsworth, we decided to treat ourselves to some chips and a mug of tea at Grindleford Station cafe. The cafe is situated in the valley below Grindleford right at the mouth of the Totley railway tunnel ( the longest completely under land railway tunnel in the country at 3.5 miles).... More

Been advised to visit here so many times and finally did one half term afternoon. It was busy on approach but plenty of parking. Walked across through couples, kids and dogs all eating sizeable plates outside. Inside it looked like a plague of locusts had visited. Tables weren't wiped and the floors had seen a few pairs of muddy boots.... More

Called in for breakfast with our mates from Eastbourne to give them a taste of life in the Peak District. We all had a full English and I have to say this place serves up one of the best fry ups in Derbyshire. Our friends absolutely loved it and didn't seem to eat much for the rest of the day... More

This is a proper, old fashioned cafe with traditional English food. It may not be luxurious but it is the real thing. Chip butties that are a huge bread roll (Bap) with an overflow of chips. Sausage and bacon butty also to die for. This is a place for walkers and people drive for miles just to experience the Station... More
