New years break in castleton and called in twice. Locals squeezed up so we could sit down. The bar person brought our dog a bowl of water and a treat. Shame restaurant wasn't open other wise we would have eaten there also.

As part of a rampaging horde of Christmas Jumper wearing Sheffielders, we commandeered this pub for little under an hour. Singer wasn't bad but the bar staff was great. i vaguely remember an adept glass collector dressed in an elf costume by the name of Kimberly.

Ok pub, not the best we went to in Hope, didn't eat here, just had a drink. Seemed to be full of locals, so didn't feel too welcome

Got recommend to try the Chinese here and I was disappointed the ribs were as dry as anything I wouldn't of fed them to my dog! The sweet and sour mixed balls was ok but something didn't make me feel well! Pub was nice and staff were friendly and welcoming also it is dog friendly.

Were looking for somewhere different to eat a 'proper' meal on a wet July evening and decided that the Woodroffe Arms might be worth a try. Turns out the restaurant is actually a separate business serving Chinese/Asian food. It was actually quite good food-wise, the service was inexperienced but very friendly, the decoration lacks originality and doesn't encourage having a... More

Visited this pub after a long walk, dripping wet and muddy but the landlord didn't mind and was very happy and welcoming. Good local pub. Nice pint of IPA, nice price too 😀

We knew that our stay at the Woodroffe wouldn't be luxurious as we hadn't paid very much money for it. The car park was absolutely fine with more than enough room. We approached the bar about checking in and were then taken to our rooms. We were actually taken to the outside of the pub and up some external stairs... More

This is one of our local pubs and one which is highly endorsed! I have read several reviews and an stunned at some of the negative comments. Each pub in the village offers different things. The Woodruffe is an amazing friendly and reasonably priced pub. I go in most weeks and have never encountered any swearing etc just good old... More
