user reviews of the Diggle Hotel, Diggle

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Quite open-plan and hardly any customers on Thursday lunchtime so the pub itself lacked atmosphere (perhaps unsurprising for a damp midweek day). We therefore chose to sit outside. My £3.60 pint of Millstone Tiger Rut was good.

Brill pub. Great range of well kept real ales. Food exceptional. Jan and Geoff and all staff are also exceptionally friendly and laid back. I walk a lot with my dog and often my route to end here.

I have been coming in here irregularly for years. The beer is always spot on. I had my first pint of Landlord in here some 20 plus years ago, which was a bit of a Road to Damascus moment at the time where beer was concerned. My view of the pub is without doubt rose tinted.

We had a very nice Sunday dinner in the Diggle today. The waiting staff were loveley and very attentive. The beef was to die for! so tender and plenty of trimmings, all home cooked and served with a smile

We're really lucky to have this pub in Diggle - top quality food, a fine selection of well-kept ales (Golden Pippin, Timothy Taylor Landlord etc) in a fantastic location. Ignore any bad publicity you may have read earlier - this is a great place to eat and drink and deserves to do well. The place was packed when we were leaving, so hats off to Geoff, Jan and the team

Been here a couple of times now. The first for a quick pint after a walk up Standedge the second for a few more refreshing pints of Golden Pippin and some well deserved hearty grub. The pub is really friendly and the Landlord is a gent; advising us on, and offering us tasters on the cask ales.

The food menu is varied and very reasonably priced and the quality is top notch. The only negative is that the pub closes for a couple of hours in the afternoon, but that made the beer taste all the more sweeter - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Caught a bus to Diggle and walked up to the pub. Wewere early and sat outside in pleasant surroundings till they opened up. Lovely location I agree, and well worth the visit. Good ales served by a friendly landlord.

Great welcome, good beer and food superb !
Nice to get a pie that had a crust top and bottom which had been in touch with the meat during cooking (those who hate the pies in brown dished with the puff pastry top added as it goes out of the kitchen door will know what I mean.
Accomodation adequate to our needs but decor etc needs upgrading. Nothing a few grand could not put right and is the top of landlords list of priorities.
The lasses who wait on table are wonderful - very friendly and not a single mention of "my name is celery and the soup of the day is Sandra and enjoy your meal" (and that's an order). Well done girls.
AND to top it off the blonds barmaid mentioned in a previous comment has had an operation and her mobile phone has been amputated. No more phone calls in working hours..heaven knows what the lads will do now but they had better watch out as she had a great smile for me as she pulled an excellend pint. Well done lass

On entering this pub i smiled at the blonde barmaid and got nothing only a stare in return, she served a couple who were before me, knowing i was waiting she then proceeded to collect glasses, place them in the machine, stand with her mobile phone texting. The landlord came behind the bar so shouted to get served, he was a friendly guy and i was served no problem with the useless barmaid now talking on the phone. I watched her, the landlord was serving as the barmaid did all she could to do nothing. The pub is comfortable with a decent menu, good real ales at a good price, and the landlord and landlady are nice and friendly, only downside the hopeless barmaid.

Old-fashioned looking local, very quiet on a weeknight, but the interesting MILD was top qualit, and of course location is fantastic

Serves good value food and beer all lunchtimes in a lovely valley setting, below the Pennine Way. Makes this a great aiming point for long and short rambles starting from Uppermill or Marsden.

The pub changed hands June 2006. New local landlord keen to please. Good range of real ale maintained - Black Sheep; Tim Taylor's and Everards. 3 rooms available for accommodation. Very friendly welcome; deserves to succeed. Band concerts on selected Sundays in the garden in summer. Good stopover for the Pennine Way as landlord will taxi walkers back up the hill to restart the walk.

Very traditional looking 'horse-brassey' pub with a permanent rack of well kept real ales. Cheap but good food and a quiz on Thursdays.
