As others have said, this is a Robinson's pub and there were two of their beers (Trooper and Dizzy Blonde) on offer when we visited. The former was decent and even came in handled glasses which pleased my mate.

The inside felt a bit bleak for some reason but the garden out back was lovely in the sunshine which excellent play facilities for the kids as well as space to run around. Despite being on a busy road it wasn't noisy at all.

Food was typical pub grub and although I wouldn't big up the quality was much as some previous posters it was nice and pretty reasonably priced.

Camping and caravanning facilities available too so I imagine the place gets busy once the weather improves.

I've driven past this pub so many times, and always regretted that I've been unable to stop, except on rare occasions. That's perhaps just as well because it's one of those places where, once you're settled, you really don't feel like leaving.

I was working on a job at a nearby smallholding a few years back, and it was pure bliss as a sanctuary at the end of the day.

Well recommended.

We visited the Duke of York in Pomeroy, about 7 miles from Buxton where we were staying. The Pub was recommended to us as we have a dog, and it is dog friendly - in fact the owners have one of the largest dogs I have ever seen (looks over the bar at you!), although one of the nicest and softest too! The beer is a good mix of the usual pumps, plus one regular real ale and a guest beer. The brewery is Robinsons. We also ate in the bar (they have a dog-free restaurant too), having had an excellent meal, at very good prices. The pub has a large caravan site attached, and the landlord told us they were spending in excess of £300k building new facilities and hard standing, which sounds ideal if you camp. The atmosphere is cosy with an open fire and all in all we had such a good time we went back the next evening too!

Hiking in appalling rainy weather, so what a relief to reach this pub which welcomes people with boots and soaked feet despite a carpeted floor. The Jack Russell dog next to me also seemed to be enjoying the place as the rain fell like stair rods outside. For real ale, only �3 per pint Robinsons Unicorn was offered and like all Robinson beers, despite it's strength,tastes slightly watered down. Mate resorted to Guinness rather than another pint but I was happy with another half. Food was good and at reasonable prices. Pensioner's special 2 course menu looked good value at �6.95. Nice open fire in a cosy lounge bar. Attentive staff. Don't be misled by its slick and glossy website which makes it look posher and pricier than it actually is. People from its rain sodden adjoining campsite were in and out so they obviously don't expect you to be in your Sunday best to enter. This is a really pleasant pub with a good feel to it.

I have recently returned from another visit to The Duke of York. I spent last Friday & Saturday nights camped adjacent to the pub. I arrived mid-afternoon, Friday & immediately went into the pub. I received a warm welcome from the landlord & I decided to try the Unicorn cask bitter (4.2%). The Unicorn was on form & very drinkable. Over the weekend I found that after a few pints it becomes rather bland & lacking a bit of bant. It certainly doesn't taste like a 4.2% bitter. The alternative bitter was Hartley's XB (4.0%) which I only tried once. It is quite a nice drink but I still preferred the Unicorn.

The food at The Duke is always worth trying. On the Friday night I had the steak & ale pie with chips, which was excellent. To follow, I had the hot chocolate fudge cake which I thoroughly enjoyed. On the Saturday night I had sirloin steak with chips, onion rings & mushrooms. The steak was very tasty.

The Duke is very busy with passing trade at weekends. It deserves to be because the food is excellent & the beer is well kept. I hope to return during the summer of 2012.
