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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Closed. Apparently being turned into a party venue where you can stay. So perhaps unsurprising my booking wasn’t honoured .

Booking is advised (it says on the website), but nobody answers the phone. I have tried six times yesterday and today. Nobody picks up. No idea whether they are closed for Covid or some other reason, or have gone bankrupt and packed up the business....Shame, it looks good on the website.More

Family of 6 visited in October. Very impressed. The quality of the food was exceptional. Rack of lamb was three big hunks of lamb, cooked perfectly pink, with crispy, salty fat, and a rich sauce. Steak was ordered medium, and came cooked perfectly and well...rested. Desserts were lovely too. Top quality pub grub.More

Just returned from a lovely meal in this charming country inn. Received a warm welcome and an interesting selection on the menu. Husband had the mussels followed by the cod with bacon & black pudding, I had smoked salmon & prawns followed by the duck...breast and sweet potatoes. All cooked with a fresh twist and inventive sauces and served well with an ample selection of vegetables. We just about managed to fit in choices of puddings. Highly recommend.More

Visited again and the quality remained top notch. Good menu with sufficient range to meet all needs. Starters featured excellent Baked Camembert, superb mussels and creamy garlic mushrooms. Mains were also excellent, particularly the chicken pie, the sea bass and the duck. Service was excellent;...personable yet professional. Quality and will be back again.More

My wife and I had dinner here in August 2021. The food was outstanding and the prices extremely good in our opinion considering the quality of the produce used and the creativity of the menu. The service was also exceptional. This is a must-visit restaurant...in the Peak District.More

WOW, what a meal, we booked here as a recommendation from where we were staying at ‘Parsons House B&B’, and they managed to squeeze us in during our stay for a meal. Tucked out of the way just outside Hartington, we loved the setting and...the food was incredible, we ordered starters ‘Goats Cheese with salad’ and ‘Camembert’ which were delicious and a beautiful starter, for our mains we had ‘Chicken Roulade’ and ‘Rack of Lamb Ribs’, delightful food, they come with side veg and are a large portion. Some of the best food we have had, and both left us very full, but it was so nice didn’t want to leave anything. Can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough, the staff are amazing and so happy and smiling continuously, they deserve high praise, if you can get in, book here.More

Having not visited, for some reason, for a number of years whilst on holiday in Hartington, we booked a table as suggested & received a warm welcome. We were the first diners & our hostess was very helpful, bringing our menus & we had a...good chat whilst she served our drinks. After choosing main courses we continued our conversation until other diners arrived & it wasn't long before our meals were served. We were delighted with our choices - duck & rack of lamb - which were beautifully presented on hot plates. The portions were generous & the selection of vegetables was very good. We enjoyed every mouthful - both meats were very tender & tasty. We had room for desserts & chose lemon tart & Eton mess & although we were told of a slight delay because of several other diners being served, we didn't wait long at all & were not disappointed with our choices. We highly recommend this lovely pub in a quiet village.More

First time at the Knot in ages. All 3 of us had an excellent meal and would definitely recommend this quiet lovely little pub. Very welcoming and although the selection of beer was limited, the Winkle Waller was excellent.

Found this pub off the beaten track in a beautiful setting. The menu changes daily to the fresh produce the chef sources. There was a great selection to choose from. We both had the lamb. Perfectly cooked to out order and bend over backwards to...accommodate my food intolerances. We finished with baked Camembert and bread and butter pudding in a cream and whiskey source. We left really full and happy.More

We had heard good things about the Staffordshire Knot and we were not to be disappointed. The quality and range of the food is excellent all produced freshly onsite. Excellent starters including baked cheeses, mussels, mushroom in tarragon, top quality mains, steak, rack of lamb,...an incredible steak pie and fish. Desserts took some traditional dishes and elevated them to new heights. Try the Bread and Butter Pudding with Whisky Cream ! A local bitter on tap as well as lager, cider and Guinness and a good selection of wine. For this quality of food in an atmospheric setting the prices are reasonable. Service was very good, friendly and very Covid secure. Cannot fault this restaurant at all. Phone ahead to check opening times and booking is essential, don't expect just to drop in and get a table as you are very likely to be disappointed. This is particularly necessary during Covid times when opening times and table availability are limited. Have already booked a return visit.More
