Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

We have just been in the Peak District visiting our grandma in disley. We chose to stay at the pack horse inn because we had stopped here for lunch on a previous visit and as well as having the best roast lamb ever the views were beautiful. We stayed for two nights and it was lovely. The breakfast was great and the rooms very cosy and comfortable. We had some issues with hiring a car but the staff were super helpful and organised taxis for us when needed and one time the chef even drove us into town. We also went on some lovely local walks. Really recommend the pack horse inn if you're visiting the Peak District, if not for an overnight stay then at least for a meal or drink.

Stayed: July 2014

We booked this hotel for a night away for our anniversary and really enjoyed it.
The beer garden was landscaped really nice and they had a good choice of hand pulled ales.
the room was really clean and nice - if the bath had been a spa bath it would have been the icing on the cake.
what i thought was great was that it wasn't noisy in the room - nothing from the pub downstairs or clatter of the kitchen at breakfast time :-)
the pub food was great including home made banoffee pie! prices were reasonable for the quality of the food and wine wasn't too expensive - we phoned ahead for reservations which i would recommend as its a small restaurant and very popular.
i cant comment on the surroundings as we didnt explore - instead driving to castleton en route home, which was about 20 mins away.
the breakfast the next day was really good - you get to choose your own cereals and fruit etc and then to select something cooked off the menu. the staff were really nice and offered to fetch more juice/coffees etc when needed.
if you want a chilled, quiet evening away i cant recommend highly enough!!!

Room Tip: make reservations in restaurant beforehand

I eat and drink here a few times a year, and never have any complaints.

Great, honest pub food at a reasonable price. A good selection of ales. Friendly staff. The pub has traditional decor and a good atmosphere. The pub is situated in a nice location with great views from the front of the pub.

This is how a public house should be, if I was a traveler I would be very happy to spend a night here.

........ in common with local councils here in N. Ireland, Derbyshire Co Council really needs to get its act together vis-a-vis obscured road signs: and I'm not joking about the satnav. One day we drove the same circle 4 times trying to find our turn. The lady on the gps is "named" Serena & the robotic voice was getting louder & louder! Strange how a robot can do that!!! Rant over.
We loved the Packhorse Inn A warm welcome, super staff, lovely rooms. Daughter was upstairs in the prettiest room I've seen in a long time. Jim & i were on the g/f with walk-in shower. very clean, comfortable & well-equipped. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, bottles of Buxton water & scrummy biscuits, together with fresh fruit & boiled sweets. There was also a small thermos for those active souls who walked the high peaks. Breakfast was great. I can heartily recommend the croissants! Dinner was excellent--fresh fish every day plus beef, chicken, curries. The chocolate orange torte is to die for. greedy pig that i am, i had it every time I wanted a pud!!!

Room Tip: upper room had more light, but the g/f is disabled friendly

Having struggled to find somewhere other than a chain pub open for food at 3pm on a Monday, we called the Pack Horse and were pleasantly surprised to learn that they serve right through the day. We weren't disappointed with our choice. Starters were all very tasty and good portion sizes. The mains were also of a good quality, and accomodation was made for our request for variation on the sides. Very happy, already planning our next visit.

Went Saturday evening for a meal it was very nice. Been a few times always very nice. The food is very good quality . one thing l would say needs altering is the seating in the dining room chairs not comfortable. Not the only one said so couple next too us was saying the same.

Room Tip: Did not stay the night

The inn is in a beautiful location. The staff were all lovely and the service we received whether it be checking in, in the bar or at breakfast was first rate.
The bar has a nice selection of drinks. The food served was a very high standard. Vegetarian options weren't great with no vegetarian specials available while we stayed. However the inn redeemed themselves with an excellent veggie cooked breakfast every morning.
The room had everything we needed. There was a wide variety of teas and other hot drinks. Fruit was provided daily (some of it past it's best unfortunately) as well as sweets and biscuits. Good selection of toiletries.
Sadly I found the room a bit tired and it would benefit from a refurb given that there is visible water damage on some walls and the ceilings of the bedroom and shower room as well as questionable stains around the toilet. I also found the noise from the above rooms very loud.
Despite this we had a very enjoyable stay and I would recommend this inn to others. I'd be very happy to stay here again though I would stay in one of the superior or executive rooms rather than the standard rooms.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the superior or executive rooms. Choose an upstairs room if you're a light sleeper...
