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.

Renovation has been completed to a very high standard. Staff are polite, welcoming and attentive. Somewhat disappointed with the food as bangers were under cooked and batter on fish was significantly overcooked, nearly “burnt “! They ran out of the beer we had on arrival and said it would be 20 minutes before the next barrel would be ready to serve, so we chose an alternative. Sadly this was the end of the barrel too, so we paid up and left. We drove to Baslow for sweets and great beer. Come on Ashford, we locals need you to get it right! First impressions and that…..

Hi Wander00384541267, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback, here at The Ashford Arms we take all of our guest's feedback very seriously, especially as we are a new venue and are always looking for ways to improve. We do apologise that your experience with us last night was not up to the usual high standards we are known and recognised for. With regards to the ale, unfortunately due to the high volume of customers that we serve, we tend to go through casks quickly and though it's unfortunate, we do sometimes have them run out simultaneously. We care about quality of our ales so we frequently clean our lines, and though this does take longer than simply putting another cask straight on, it ensures that every pint is clean, fresh and at its best for our customers. With regards to the food you chose, I have addressed the issues you experienced with our kitchen team and this is something that we, as a management team, will be keeping a close eye on to ensure that all of the food that is delivered to our customers is going out at the highest standards achievable. We do hope that you visit us again soon so that we can have a second chance at providing you with the food and drinks standards we are known for. Many thanks, Emma Assistant Manager

Great service from the waitresses who took our order promptly . Ordered the scotch eggs for lunch - delicious!! Superb setting , service , attention to detail in this pub which has two other sister pubs . Very welcoming , would definitely visit again!

Great overnight stay with dinner. I was working not far away, expecting to be finished around 8.30pm. Staff were super helpful in organising a table for dinner. My room was comfortable with welcome touches such as good quality tea, coffee and cantucci biscuits and a radio. I especially appreciated the TV channel choices so I could log into my Netflix and IPlayer accounts. Food was good, particularly the Bakewell tart.

Not as good as our first time, which was their opening weekend and excellent. We ate Sunday lunch again this time. My lamb was tough and chewy so I asked to send it back and replace with beef if they could not provide better lamb. This was done in a respectful way except that my husband was left eating his lunch alone for about 10 minutes. We think that his meal should have been refreshed at the same time as mine. When the bill was presented it was incorrectly charging my lamb instead of beef and this was quickly amended. I then commented that I thought my additional glass of red wine should have been complimentary owing to our poor meal experience. The waitress then took the bill away again with impatient and dismissive body language, almost stomping away, which we were quite offended by. The bill was indeed re-presented excluding the glass of wine, which was great, but we were disappointed by the attitude 😒 This was going to be our new favourite place to eat instead of The Merchant's Yard in Tideswell, but we are now not so sure!

We stayed for 2 nights in the Aisseford suite. The room was fab and the bathroom was amazing. All the amenities you could need topped off with a surprise box of truffles! The hotel is well furnished and the decor is very well done. Food service was good with a nice variety of options, locally sourced where possible. A very comfortable and well located place to stay. The bar area is dog friendly - hopefully the rooms may be too in future so we can come back with our pooch!

Lovely place to have lunch. Friendly and efficient service, great choice of food, nicely cooked and well presented. We really enjoyed our meals. And a bonus: toilets were spotless, with hot water (rare these days) in the taps.

First visit since it has been well restored. Lovely greeting at the reception before being shown to our table. Lunchtime visit and had a choice of two menus, we chose off the main menu. Both enjoyed our starters, wild mushroom & truffle arancini and the wild mushroom and blue Stilton oatcake. Mains again were lovely, chicken supreme and beer battered cod, chips & peas, the cod was quite a large portion but lovely crispy batter and flaky cod. Unfortunately we couldn’t manage a dessert but will definitely return to try one!

Couldn’t fault our food, or the service. The refurbishment is excellent - not pretentious yet stylish and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. A new favourite to add to the list.
