Old school country pub set in some beautiful Peak District countryside. Slightly off the normal tourist route, which is good.
Marston's ales plus on this occasion Nutty Black by Thwaites. Nice to see a mild on tap, and in good nick. No fancy food but good range of bar snacks. Friendly but no nonsense landlord. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

At last I've been passing when this great little pub is open, so in we went. Most times it's shut but that's down to me. I can't fault it what with the well lived in atmosphere, real fire, good beer (Jennings Mild), famous pork pies - I could go on and on.The landlord was perfectly friendly as were the locals and we'll definitely go back asap.

Superb village alehouse. Simple, plain, very atmospheric, would be a great place to be sheltered in while the wind howled outside (or anything else howled for that matter, this is the wilds of the Peak District). The landlord speaks his mind, but that's no bad thing, and the beer is excellent. Visit it while you can, before it becomes another victim of modernisation.....

I too love this place. It's just as all the Peak District pubs were 30 years ago. A decent pint, no fancy arty-farty food except pork pies and crisps. A landlord who speaks his mind and no false pretentiousness or greed for profits. Pity they're a dying breed and being replaced by the likes of the Monsal Head Hotel types

I love this pub the landlord is a great characture and his beer always good, lovely fire in the winter. Sundays much better now the rude musicians have gone. Try not to leave without eggs they are really good

An ancient looking pub set in an ancient village with a stunning drive to it whichever way in you come - watch out for the unprotected steep drops when coming in off tha A515. Old-fashioned interior, with stone tiled floor, wooden wall-cladding (a bit "piney" for my liking) and a few tables with inset trays for dominoes and crib. Stickers dating back to 1976 around the bar testify to the long history of entries in the Good Beer Guide. Visited at around 7.45pm on a Saturday evening, but were greeted only by an empty room and a none too communicative young barman who shuffled out from a back room when he heard us walk in, dispensed our drinks with barely a word and was gone again in an instant. Spent 30 minutes alone supping our very good pints, mine Jennings Dark Mild and the wife a Reverend James, then left before anyone else arrived. So a slightly flat experience, but well worth another visit when there would hopefully be others around to liven up the atmosphere a bit...

Popped in here after a great walk over Chrome Hill. Marston's pub with at least 4 pulls (Pedigree, Marston's Bitter, Brains Rev. James and Gray's Mild), beer in excellent condition, friendly landlord and locals, great pork pies. Well worth a visit.
