I had the beer battered fish and chips with minted peas, chips were great! Unfortunately the fish was tasteless and the batter soggy, peas… frozen crushed peas… again not much taste! Very expensive for what you get. I would class this as value for money

Came across this place when doing a customer visit in the Derbyshire Dales. Stopped there for lunch, it’s in the middle of nowhere but well worth a stop. Good wholesome fresh cooked food, large portion. Can also buy marmalade, cakes, biscuits, proper country shop!

It's such an attractive situation and building that I was afraid that the food would be a disappointment - but it wasn't! We had some excellent soup with good service. I'd recommend it!
