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.

They had no kids menu and service was very slow. They brought out all the adult meals and didn’t bring the kids meals out until 10 mins later so kids got upset and restless. Then they forgot one of the orders

This was the third time that we have had food here and it was so disappointing. The other times were so good. The food was cold and hardly any beef in the tacos the waitress said it was a new chef won’t be back

The food and atmosphere were great. The Tap House is known locally for its variety of beers. These include gluten-free options. Definitely try their beer 'Girl from Mars' We had the belly pork in hosin sauce with cheesy truffle fries and truffle mac and cheese....These worked well together. We had a great evening outMore

What a little gem of a place! We were staying just over the road for work and decided to try here. Lovely food, drinks and staff. Also a fantastic touch to have card games etc for people to play. Definitely worth a visit!

Great venue for some really nice beer and unexpectedly excellent food. Thoroughly recommend some of the small plates options: sweet potato / courgette fritters and nduja scotch egg particularly good.

Had a fab lunch here on a flying overnight to Buxton. Our food was really quick and the quality and presentation were outstanding. We are in the cafe business so know when corners are cut and here they are not! We had the fish sandwich...which was so hot and tasty and the chips are to die for. Great prices, fab atmosphere, loved the music choice, all in all a great experience, give them a try you won't be disappointed!More

Food was amazing - we had a few sharing plates which are big enough for a meal for one and great value at 3 for £25 plus we ordered most of the sandwiches across our table. The haddock gougons were over salty but everything else...was delicious- Cajun chicken highly recommended along with the pork belly and duck/chicken pancakes. Beer is fab, staff very friendly and attentive. Highly recommendedMore

Wow! Think they may have a new chef since we last came in 2022 but absolutely sensational food… we popped in for lunch then came back for dinner it was so delicious and also amazing value?? They have a three “small plates” for £25 but...the plates are a full meal! Small it’s not part of them - the quality of the meat and the flavour of the dishes are fabulous. The menu is also massive and it Dosent need to be because it’s all so delicious 🤤 Really really good here - can’t wait to come back! Don’t tell anyone else please as want to keep this a hidden gem!More

I heard a rumour that the fabled Chef Robert Peeling was running the kitchen at the Tap house and I had to see if they were true. Whispers of his return have been heard from the four corners of the world - mutterings of his...name in alien tongues echoed across the land - an enigma shrouded within an mystery... I ordered the sunday dinner and waited, patiently foaming at the mouth in anticipation for what was to pass. When the meal arrived my extremities were quivering with excitement! Never before I have I felt the soft contours of my face glow in such a way. The presentation, the taste, the mouth feel! I felt as though mayhaps it was a meal prepared by the gods for fallen angels to devour before making battle with lucifers servants. What am I to do? After ingesting this meal I am now nothing more than a vascuous husk - consumed by sorrow and suffering at the thought of swallowing anything prepared by mortals.More

For ‘no need to book’ written on chalk board outside, read booking not possible and there will be no space when you turn up later and staff will be indifferent and dismissive. 5 disappointed adults
