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

Visited this pub a couple of times recently and on each occasion the place was pretty dead and the beer is average at best.

The best pub locally is the Pack Horse at Crowdecote.

Haven't tried the food, but the ale choice is almost as uninspiring as the Horseshoe. Bit of a dingy place, too... very little atmosphere.

Wow, what a terrific place. First thing to note is the wonderful fire raging as you walk in from the cold. As I watched people filter in from the bitter night, every single one of them let out a yelp of delight and relief at its presence.

The most impressive thing here is the welcoming staff. They just could not be friendlier and are extrememly good fun. We ended up spending the entire night there and their willingness to make us comfortable in any way possible was brilliant.

The food's good (except for the peas, what a horrific mistake they are!! Wonderful home cooked food served with tinned, dull green, tasteless peas. A truly baffling decision), the service excellent and the atmosphere a real surprise for a remote village pub.

We played darts for much of the night, and there was decent live music round the other side of the bar.

Perhaps my only criticism was that there was only one real ale available and it didn't look like they ever have more than one on at a time. Luckily it was a decent drop (Robinson's Unicorn), but really 2 real ales are an absolute minimum for a pub in the heartland of England's outdoors.

If I was considering a walking holiday in the Peak District again I would give very serious consideration to ensuring I was based in the vicinity of this pub for apres walk activities.

It's a blinder.

Superb village pub - selection of great Robinsons ales and food is great - very tasty, good prices and decent portions. Comfortable bar areas with nice open fires. Staff and locals very friendly, I'm not usually made as welcome at my own local! Highly recommended

I can't rate this pub highly enough. It's smack in the middle of walking/camping country and they have a room inside the pub where you can take the dogs. They have brilliant ale choices, lovely food including staffordshire oatcoake conconctions and the best homemade chips ever tasted since nana's. More importantly the staff are without doubt the friendliest I've ever come across - nothing was too much trouble and they made a cold and rainy weekend an absolute delight. Don't be tempted to go to nearby (overhyped) Packhorse in Crowdecote - the comparison in service levels is frightening!
