we came here for an evening meal, whilst staying overnight locally.
It was drastically understaffed the poor girl behind the bar, was barmaid, waitress, cleaner and maître d'.
The menu offered far too much choice, which is often a sign that the kitchen is jack of all trades and master of non. One of the fish meals was horribly undercooked, and nothing was done when we complained.
Choosing wine became a bit of a farce when a taste was offered from the dregs of a bottle that was more sediment than wine. If there had been an alternative to this place we would have taken it.
However the building its self is stunning and the views are some of the best in Derbyshire.
