user reviews of Manifold Inn, Buxton

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

Bit touristy but then it would be given it's location. Very nice none the less.
4 handpulls on, Doombar, Wainwright, Titanic and another I forget. All in good order.
Food was good, but tourist prices, only way they can survive I suspect.
Had a good few locals arrive by end of the night and a bit more atmosphere ensued.
All in all well worth a visit, steady 7/10 from me.

This pub is about 10 miles from Buxton, doesn`t anyone check these things before putting them on the site?

My wife and I called in on spec for lunch yesterday and were pleasantly delighted. Nice location, nice layout and an interesting menu. As Gristy said earlier the prices don't seem cheap on the blackboard, but on the plate they were certainly decent value. Small but decent selection of real ales, and we wlould definitely go there again. But on our visit, we were privileged to overhear an interesting cabaret. On the next table were a couple of a certain age ( okay - the same as us ) who were obviously on a first date ( seriously !! ) His stories were all food oriented, and he was describing and criticising the meal of marrowbone he had eaten in a "Michelin starred restaurant" in Edinburgh the previous week. It just so happens we had also seen that edition of Professional Master Chef the previous evening. I wonder whether he pulled ?? Anyway, back to the pub. Certainly worth a visit, compared to some other places we had visited during the week.

An excellent pint of Hartington IPA, and not too far from home, efficient staff, appears dog friendly in the bar area, food menu looks very good, and reasonable prices, going to try a meal there with the family next weekend but well impressed on first visit,

Visited around 4.30pm on a fairly quiet Sunday afternoon, although nearby Hartington village was overflowing with visitors. Superb location in a dip at the bottom of a hill at the junction of two roads and a bridge, very attractive looking place. Decent enough beer from the Whim brewery, food listed up on large blackboard looked OK, although certainly not cheap.
Would probably need to visit again at a busier time to get a true impression, but a nice quiet half-hour spent.

We are the proud new owners of The Manifold Inn after purchasing the business back in Aug 07.

It was soon very obvious to us that there were several issues with the 'old' Manifold (as evidenced by the poor reviews). To this end, the old management team were removed and replaced by a young team of presentable, polite and enthusiatic proffessionals.

We then invested heavily in the urgent upgrades of the 10 rooms with no expense spared.

The refurb is now complete and the rooms are a very high standard with new bathroom suites throughout.

I am saddened when I read the reviews of the 'old' Manifold and it is unfortunate that I have inherited the documented errors of the past owners.

These obviously overshadow the hard work and huge changes that have taken place since we took over.

To this end I have replied personally to all the unhappy customers in the review panel on this site and would invite anybody to revisit the 'new' Manifold to witness the changes and enjoy the atmosphere of a genuinely special location.

Kind regards

Paul Rogers
New Owner

NOT A DOG FRIENDLY PUB. Myself and friends went to this pub whilst on a camping holiday, staying at the pleasant campsite in the village. We were eight adults and two dogs and had contacted them in advance to check that it was OK for us to bring the dogs into the pub and they had told us that dogs were welcome. We were upset and confused when we arrived and there was a “no dogs” sign on the door, and when we queried this we were spoken to in a very rude manner and told to sit in the corner at a very small table. While we were there a group with a guide dog in training arrived but were turned away. A family with small children were also asked to go outside. I find it very difficult to understand why a pub would tell people over the phone that dogs are welcome when in fact they are not. I am also astounded at how people who choose to work with the public can have such poor people skills.

What a beautiful looking place in the middle of campers paradise in the Peak District! And what a GORJUS day to go! This pub is open all day to accomodate local need and takes credit/debit cards which was a life saver in itself! The landlady, in a fleeting appearance, came across as fearsome and the barman was a male clone! The food we had from the daily special board was quite simply the worst home-made food I have ever come across - I had lasagne and it was awesome for all the wrong reasons - I could taste the grease for a day afterwards. Lovely pub, lovely surroundings but grim food and staff to match
