Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely Sunday lunch; we had the lamb, beef and trio. All cooked very well. Amazing Yorkshire pudding! Nice veg and great deserts.

We come here quite a bit and it’s a great country pub - nice fires and friendly staff. However the food is super-expensive and the portions are just too big - their solution lies therein, cut the portions and reduce prices and it will be...less overwhelming. But it’s certainly a likeable pub and we’ll be back.More

All our 5 different meals very disappointing and overpriced. £26 fish pie, watery sauce, salty and tiny prawns. Vegetarian burger similar to cheap shop bought, soggy brioche bun. Overcooked pork, Burger and vegetarian tart also not enjoyed.

A lovely traditional pub with the log fires burning. Visited for lunch when seeing family locally, had to book on the phone but definitely worth the extra effort. We enjoyed the specials, a fantastic salmon risotto and sausage and mash. Delicious puddings too. The food...and the service were both excellent, we’ll be back.More

We have used this pub over the years and generally the food pleases. I think the prices have become over the top. £25 for a less than perfect fish pie . Small with a few minuscule prawns. The steak and kidney pudding had scant meat...inside. Chips good. Burger less than average . Vegetables plenty. This is pub grub not fine dining , I can’t understand the pricing . Not all staff are particularly friendly . Needs tweaking .More

Nice pub, great real open fires, staff were pleasant. We ordered fish finger sandwiches on a choice of white or granary bread choosing granary - £10.95 each so for my wife and I almost £22.00 for two fish finger sandwiches. They arrived on wholemeal with...no explanation or apology so that was the first disappointment. The salad garnish and few crisps on the side were ok. The fish fingers were budget and not a premium fish finger so 2nd disappointment - at that price you would expect the chef would use a quality product - but no.More

A beautiful building with some exciting Thompson "mouseman" bar tops and tables and chairs which were so unusual to see! The log fires added to the overall positive ambience. The beers were varied and good. A great start. Sadly that was the end of the...positives of our visit. The food which wins accolades elsewhere here, was poor and overpriced, the service was functional. Several of us had steak and kidney puddings with mushy peas. The pies were remarkable, - for their LACK of steak and kidney AND flavour! two small pieces of beef and one piece of kidney and a strangely flavourless suet patry casing with lots of flavour lacking gravy. The fish pies were equally disappointing, lacking in any quantity of fish and prawns, and the burger possibly the best buy of that day - rated as "alright". I was not convinced that the puddings were not bought in rather than made on the promises and came to the same conclusion about the panko crumbed king prawns I had as a starter - they at least had flavour if appearing to be made of chopped prawns and uniformly shaped. I could of course be wrong about that but it doesn't really matter, what does matter is that they were expensive and poor value for money.. I must say that I think there's nothing intrinsically wrong with buying in dishes but at these prices I expect better quality whether bought in or home made.More

This was a very disappointing experience. The ambience of the Inn was great and the service acceptable. However, the food was way below the standard I expected from reading the reviews. My partner and I had the Fish Pie, a complete misnomer, with just a...small quantity of mushy fish with an overload of herbs that dominated the flavour. For what it was, it was vastly overpriced as were the dishes our friends had. I would not fecommend it, nor will I be going back any time soon.More

I was seriously impressed by this amazing pub/restaurant. Found by chance whilst passing through the area. Stopped off for lunch. The service, atmosphere, decor and food was hands down the best i've had in years. The Christmas decorations were unique and magical and perfect for...a romantic, cosy lunch. I had a vegan quiche lunch option with a side salad and chips. Everything was so fresh, home made and full of flavour which is unusual as many restaurants/pubs don't put any effort into their vegan offerings. We are absolutely planning to come back soon and stay the night next time so that we can spend more time here. Highly recommended for a romantic meal or cosy get together with friends and family!More

We stopped here on the way back from the Peak District with friends before we went our separate ways home. Unfortunately we only had drinks and crisps as the we’re closed for food. This is a quality inn with a shop selling fresh local produce....We decided we would meet here again and book a table in advance.More

Food is better than the real ale. Staff are a bit stiff, not the warmest of welcomes. Nice outside area if the weather permits.
