“ok pub, lovely building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

Went in here as lovely thatched pub. Dark inside and upstairs dining room closed. Suspect as out of season. Got very busy in the evening and food was slow. Starters lovely but mains a let down.fish pie was watery and chips were hot but still hard. Nice atmosphere though and though staff apologised for wait a smile from the lady that served us wouldn't have gone amiss.

“A great pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

The Village Inn has got a great atmosphere and a good selection of ales. The food is good value for money and there is a nice eating area in the garden. It is popular so it does get quite busy.

“An excellent choice for a meal out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

The staff were very pleasant , The food was really good. The real ale was excellent. We had two very good evening meals at the Inn. It would be ideal if the Inn, staff, food and beer could magically be transported to Derbyshire. We thank them for improving our few days away.

“A warm, welcoming place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

The village inn has a wonderful feel to it. Warm and welcoming, you feel relaxed and at home wen you walk in. The service is great and the staff very friendly. The food is very good, I would call it pub food not pub grub. Overall worth a return visit.
