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.

We ate dinner here as a couple on a Saturday night in October. The car park was fairly full but there is a lot of space in the restaurant bar area, so we had no problem finding a table, but do book ahead. Warm and...welcoming log fire with a specials board above it to supplement the regular menu. We ate a burger from the normal menu and a lamb casserole from the specials board, both were excellent. After our meals were delivered (within 20 minutes of ordering) two members of staff came to check on us. So no complaints on service but as we are both watching our weight I cannot comment on the desserts! Two draft local beers were on tap - one from Marstons and one from Falstaff in Derby.More

Not having been for a while we ended up visiting three times within a matter of weeks, the first two occasions with family and friends and then in a party of a dozen or so relative strangers. The good thing about the C&H is that...it's very reliable. There's always plenty of choice and the already extensive menu is augmented by a frequently-changing specials' board. Focusing on the group meal it was impressive to see such a diverse range of meals brought out at once, to the same high standard, as none of the food had been preordered. Service was excellent - polite, courteous, helpful and timely. I think that's all to be said!More

We came here for Sunday dinner, as it was the closest pub to our campsite, and I’m really glad we did! The pub is lovely and the staff are very friendly and attentive. The menu was great, as were the specials, but I was most...impressed by the children’s meal selection. My son had a gammon and my daughter had chicken nuggets, but there was a really fab choice available. I had the beef topside which, along with the selection of vegetables, was cooked to perfection. The food was bought out really quickly too. I’m very impressed and am tempted to travel 1 1/2 hours to come back once I’m home 😂. Fantastic! (Although dogs aren’t allowed inside, for those for whom that matters)More

We couldn't find anything open on a Sunday night for food and then we found the coach and horses. What a find. Food was great ( I'm not vegetarian but chose the black bean and lentil burger and it was perfect ). All five of...us really enjoyed our meals and a decent price. Staff all very friendly and a nice atmosphere ... Well worth a visit.More

Visited with friends. The cheesy garlic mushrooms were amazing - we all loved them. Hubby loved his pie & I enjoyed the veg chilli with halloumi. Kids meals were good quality & size. Crème brûlée was soooo creamy with a great ‘crack’ Good friendly service...with food served quickly but not rushed.More

Went for a meal with my wife as part of wedding anniversary trip to Derbyshire. Staff/owners were really friendly. Excellent beer. Fantastic food - my wife had one of the best steaks she has ever had and I had a steak and kidney pie special...which was the best I've had. Creme brulle and cheese and biscuits for dessert, both superb. Excellent value for money, cannot recommend highly enough.More
