“a most welcoming reception”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Called here with my wife and a friend for a drink and a light lunch whilst on a walk in the area. I can only describe the landlady and her staff as the most friendly and welcoming of any pub I have ever visited. The food was fresh and cooked to order and the landlady even provided a non-menu dish for my wife. Beer was excellent and prices were very reasonable. We will be planning more walks in the area and the Farmyard Inn will definitely be on the itinerary.

Well, I was conducting a US friend on a visit to connect with her local UK family.
To start, there was ample parking, which is important because Youlgreave itself is a lovely scenic village, but compact and definitely not built to accommodate cars.
The rooms were individual, comfortable and well maintained, with all the mod cons you'd expect.
Downstairs, there is a cosy village pub atmosphere. The menu was extensive, with varied good food in generous portions at affordable prices, and catered readily for all dietary fads and foibles. Staff and management were warm and welcoming, with an impressive patience and good-humour with our embarrassingly fussy fellow traveller.
Loved it. Will come again.

Room Tip: Right now, this is a small B&B with only four rooms, but the two we occupied were just fine. All...

Possibly the most unfriendly reception I've ever had in a pub. From the minute I entered the building the mood was sour. The bar lady was curse greeting me with what can only described as a grunt, while the landlady might have given a better reception to a steaming pile of sh1t on the carpet than what she offered me. On the whole the place had a sour tone from the moment I was served, thank god this was not the only pub in town.

I couldn't recommend the Farmyard Inn highly enough! The welcome is friendly, the rooms are well laid out, warm and comfy, the breakfasts are out of this world and that's even before you mention the adjoining pub. The landlady is so very helpful and appears to juggle a hundred things effortlessly - and this is reflected in the pub which has a great atmosphere, beer and excellent food!

Youlgreave as a location is perfect - near enough to the local attractions like Bakewell whilst being out of the husstle and bustle to make your stay a relaxing one.

Room Tip: Any of them!

Stayed 15th Feb for 1 night, wish it could have been more. Stayed in the stables, what a lovely clean, modern and comfortable room. This was a return trip as we stayed here about 8 years ago and I have to say the new owner is fab!. Down to earth and funny. Love this place and will be recommending to friends and family. Won't be leaving it as long till we visit again. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Had a short overnight stop, wish it had been a week!!
The welcome we got and the accommodation was excellent.
By luck the night we stayed was pie night,and as a foodie I was amazed at the quality and choices
on offer.Even my wife was blown away by them
Sue,the landlady then proceeded to provide us with a "proper" breakfast to start the next day
We hope it will not be too long before we can return for seconds!!

This is a lovely old local pub. The fire is extremely welcoming and the staff are extremely friendly. We have eaten there a couple of times in the past and it has always been excellent. I ordered the steak on our last visit and unfortunately, it was served cold and extremely overcooked. Hopefully this was just a one off because as I said, other meals I have eaten there have been exceptional and the staff and atmosphere are lovely.
