Emailed last night to reserve a table for lunch today. Received a reply from Colette the landlady, even though she was away, saying it would be fine. Arrived for lunch a little early today and our table was ready and waiting. Colette had warned us that it would be busy and that we should be prepared for a wait. So many people in such a small space all waiting patiently in turn, sampling and ordering real ales, chatting and listening to Eddie behind the bar. We watched the towering burgers being delivered to the tables, smelling our food being cooked. When our lunch arrived, we were not disappointed, huge tasty locally produced sausages, and the lasagne was delicious. What a fine atmosphere ! And sunshine too - what more could we have asked for. All in all, a fine meal, in good company in the Derbyshire countryside. We shall return and hope to meet you next time Colette.
