|Only stopped as passing, lovely place. Food looks fantastic. voted one of the top 50 by the times. (38th I think) Next time in Ashover will give the food a go. Peak ales were the beers on tap, a well kept pint was consumed.|

|Four of us called at this pub a week ago after a five mile ramble over fields and muddy paths, so with muddy boots and scruffy clothes we were a little daunted to find a Bentley, a Lagonda and several more high end autos parked outside.|
I had picked the place by sticking a pin in a map but would it now be far too posh for the likes of us ?.
We removed boots and stepped in to a cosy characterful lounge bar with a log fire and we were as welcome as any toff might have been.
Expecting high prices we ordered food and beer with trepidation. After experiencing the rip off prices charged by some honey trap peak district pubs we were pleasantly surprised to find no rip offs here. The beer was excellent locally produced real ale at reasonable prices, the baguette sandwiches were really high quality and even a little cheaper than the average country pub prices in the national park. Despite my wearing flip flops and carrying my muddy boots in a tatty Sainsbury's bag, the barman without hesitation offered us a table in the up market restaurant area at the back but we decided to stay in the cosy bar. We had an enjoyable one and half hour stay to the point of having to make our return walk as the sun was setting.
A gem of a pub in a lovely area well deserving its place in the Times list of top 50 gastropubs.

|This is a little gem and it's not surprising that the reviews are all positive. The one that isn't relates to a Sunday lunch episode and I don't think you can judge any pub on the mayhem that this usually involves for all.|
Any other time you can eat in the restaurant or the bar and have the same superb choice of menu. The food is imaginative and excellent but it isn't cheap: expect restaurant quality and restaurant prices to go with it. That said, they have a range of more 'pub food' offerings as well, such as burgers and sandwiches.
As to the beer, Farmers is not often found but is worth trying. When we visited (for dinner Wednesday 7 April 2010) they also had a well-kept guest in the form of Jennings Bitter. Well worth a visit.

|I happened upon this pub on the way into Ashover. It looked perfectly charming from the outside - most inviting on an early spring day.|
I had a pint of "Farmers" which I believe is a local brew? Ordered a ribeye steak sandwich at £7. Absolutely superb! Local meat from a local butcer, local baked bread, caramalised onions and Buxton cheese with a fresh side salad garnish, and home-made chutney. Although the pub was quite busy with diners, the meal came within 15 minutes, despite the barman forewarning me that "...we have a number of orders in the pipeline, so there may be a bit of a wait..." He even came out into the carpark to fetch me when my meal was ready, as I had returned to my car to attend to my dogs.
I could not fault it.
