Friendly helpful staff, good range of food and excellent beer. Clean toilets. Welcomes walkers, cyclists and dog owners (provides water for dogs) as well as everyone else. Also does coffee from 10 am until the bar opens. Visited 19th May 2011

Last visited this place over two years ago. Since then they've expanded their camping area and added a bunkhouse. The place is very popular and so if you want to eat booking is essential at weekends. Although the excellent food is the focus here, there's still a bar area to sit & drink in and so it still retains a nice atmosphere. Pedigree, Hartington and Buxton ales on, all good.

beer & food all top notch
Paul can appear brusque (I thought he was at first) - but he runs a tight ship, later at night when things are less rushed you'll find he's a friendly chap after all.
If you want food it's always best to reerve a table as the place is deservedly popular. We booked for 12 and although the pub was heaving we were pleasantly surprised by how quickly we were served (we had pre-ordered on their recommendation, and when we saw how full it was we were really glad that we did)
P.S. camping & parking both great too

We ate here 2 nights in a row, food was excellent on both occasions. Very nice pint of Hartington bitter on, they also had IPA and a guest beer. We were made very welcome even though we rolled in covered in mud after cycling 3km along the Tissington trail in slush& snow. They also have a bunkhouse, camping field and a paddock to park your horse in.
