“Proper pub grub!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Called on Sunday at 1:30. Excellent choice of proper home made pub grub, 1 roast beef and 1 cajun chicken later and two very happy people. Really this is what country pubs should be like. good attentive service and tasty food.
Great chef and a landlord with the right direction and attitude. Just need someone to sort out the weather;-)

“Great value and friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

We popped in here on the off chance after a wet days walking in Baslow. All the staff were really friendly and a lovely Green King IPA, along with the cosy, traditional bar area soon warmed us through. The menu is not extensive, but good pub fare. I ordered fish and chips, my friend bangers and mash. Both were promptly served and well presented. Large portions and delicious!! With both costing under a tenner good value too.

“Great value tasty pub food - a great way to spend a Bank Holiday lunchtime!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

We visited the Bridge Inn on Bank Holiday Monday at the beginning of May and were impressed with what we found - a quiet village pub in a pleasant area next to a ford, with plenty of outdoor seating.
The welcome we received was very friendly and the service was great throughout, from those taking our orders and the waiter working very hard to get all of the meals out to the garden quickly.
There were a couple of local ales on tap and very reasonably priced.
However, the biggest thumbs up goes to the food - we paid under £20 per head for two good-sized courses and they were delicious. Everybody in our party went for the steak and ale pie and we were glad we did - really tender meat and great pastry, served with plenty of well-cooked chips. The range of starters were also well received. Desserts looked promising from what we saw but we were all too full to go for any!
Calver is only a stone's throw from Bakewell and Patey Gorge so plenty of options available for anybody wanting to waddle off lunch (as we did) or work up an appetite.
We arrived early as the pub was opening, but it filled up while we were there, so I'd recommend making a table booking if there are going to be a few of you. Next time we're in the area, we will certainly return!

“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Called on Bank Holiday Monday, we originally called at the Eyre Arms but this was closed so we were desperate for food. I am so glad we came here instead, the food was amazing. Charming country pub with a nice outdoor seating area.
The food took around 30 minutes or arrive which we were made aware of, the chips were amazing and we really enjoyed our food. I wish we had room for pudding but we were both too full. We will call in again if we are in the area and try the puddings.
The pub is in a great location and we enjoyed a great walk afterwards.

“Outstanding food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

Seriously impressed by this lovely little pub. The food was absolutely delicious - my only complaint is that I was so full I couldn't manage desert! I will definitely be back. Speedy and friendly service in beautiful surroundings - definitely worth a visit!
