“Amazing place to stay”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

We spent a few nights herre with our dogs as we love walking. This was a wonderful weekend. Good Food a,mazing quaint four poster bedrooms, Breakfast in Bed. Even though after trying all the local ales and the top row of Whiskey me and my partner had a great stay. wouldn't hesitate to go there again. If you go Paintballing in the area i would suggest you stay here.

I was introduced to The Strines Inn when a friend mentioned they'd been there and really liked it. I went myself not long afterwards with some friends and found the Inn to be a comfortable and relaxing place, with great service and wonderful food. Great for after long walks in the Peaks, or if you just fancy good food in a great peaceful location! Highly recommended!

What a treat, sat outside soaking up much needed sunshine with entertainment from the resident peacocks. Welcoming bar staff offered samples of local beers to help us make our choices. The homemade chilli served in a large Yorkshire pudding was perfectly seasoned. Definitely going to return whenever in the area - ranks highly in our list of favourite places.

It is astonishing that such gorgeous scenery can be found within a few miles of a major industrial city, but being on the doorsteps of the Peak District is Sheffield's justified claim, and the route between Moscar and Bradfield is amongst the prettiest in the region. But how familiar we are with establishments trading purely on the strength of the setting, while falling short on the quality of product and service? Rather than a way of exploitation, establishments should regard the setting as a privilege. Fortunately for the Strines, the product is sufficiently reasonable to rule out blatant exploitation, but the Strines could do a little more, and then it would gain that right to factor the setting into the whole offering.
Turning up at about 5pm, the all-day food service was useful. There was the usual range on the menu but the Giant Yorkshire Pudding variations seemed to be their forte. Instead I went for the Halibut Steak on the specials board, which at under a tenner is very good value for this expensive fish. Wife and daughter chose the Sea-Bass. The halibut was large, thick, tasty and properly cooked, and accompanied by a fresh mixed salad - very good, and with some very tasteless peas. The bass was small, because it was only a single side, and just slightly overcooked.
Service was cheerful and polite and the meal arrived about 15 mins after ordering. I ignored coffee - the Strines needs to reconsider the £3 charged for a large espresso.
So reasonable value food though some portions small, good service, helpful all day meals, at least adequate overall.

Called in for pub grub whilst on a day trip out on Bank Holiday Monday.

The location is perfect in wonderful countryside in a fairy tale setting. Plenty of parking; lovely gardens with outdoor tables. It reminded me of "The Slaughtered Lamb" pub out of the film "American werewolf in London" because of it's remote moorland location.

Inside it's like stepping back in time. This is a genuine old fashioned English Inn serving real ale and pub grub. Staff were friendly enough, the food came in a timely manner and the real ale was very good. As we waited we drooled at the other dishes being served to other customers it looked so good; we ordered the steak in ale pie and couldn't wait.

It was rubbish and for the price (over £9 per dish) was very disappointing. The measly portion of chips were pale and soggy (undercooked); the small portion of "school dinners like" pie seemed to have been hanging around for too long, the pastry being sad and the filling congealed. The vegetables (broccoli, carrots and peas) were fine.

If we call in again we'll avoid the pie !

Often when my Dad comes to visit we head out to the Peaks and straight to the Strines Inn for lunch. Fabulous setting, lovely Olde Worlde traditional vibe unlike the shiney new chain pubs popping up in the Peak District. The steak was wonderfully cooked with delicious home-made chips (you must try these!). The side salad was fresh and the peppercorn sauce was a perfect blend of creamy and peppery. Dad thoroughly enjoyed his mammoth portion of BBQ pork ribs. The portions here certainly are hefty and you have to make sure you can squeeze in a dessert, they do say the golden oldies are the best. Definitely get your moneys worth. Staff are friendly and helpful although I must say they do not know their specials menu particularly well. I enquired what an 'orange and passionfruit teardrop' was and satisfied with the explanation promptly ordered it. It turned out to be nothing like what she described but delicious all the same! Definitely worth a short de-tour from the main road.

A little run down, but then what do you expect from an Olde Worlde pub out in the sticks?
There is plenty of car parking, opening into a higher field if the place is busy to full. I did expect something a little more upmarket, but I wasn't disappointed.
All the staff were polite, the fire was roaring in spite of the winter chill barely being present, and the food, once ordered from the bar was with our party of four withing around 15 minutes. The menu has a reasonable selection, including a few vegetarian choices, and I was pleased that the portions were sensiblly average and reflected in the average pricing of the food. A meal for four without starters but including a dessert and no wine was just about £50.
We'll definitiely be delighted to return.
