Booked for a night away for my Husband, the dog and I. Lovely food & great ale. Great for nearby walks through the countryside. The room was nice and clean and the hosts very friendly. Would recommend

The Inn is in a nice village but the rooms are very small and definitely need a re- furb. The bathroom was exceedingl small with no heating or radiator and the towels were a disgrace. There are very nice new owners there, so things might get better!

After a good walk in the Amber Valley a mild October enabled us to sit outside at the back which has a pleasant aspect. Micro brewery on site which the Ashover pale is excellent. Fish & chips very large (they do a smaller portion which would probably been enough). All food sampled got appreciative noises & friendly staff.

A very nice pub with good practical food and drink, just what you want from a night out; especially when you're hungry. The pub is little off the main road. Coming from Derby it took me just under an hour to get there but once there I was not disappointed.

This is an excellent rural pub. Let me count the ways: - huge range of real ales - brew their own excellent beers - large range of ciders - warm welcome - roaring fires - folk music nights - hearty food - great accommodation - fabulous location Convinced? What more do you want?

From J Boy of Derby My first ever visit to Ashover, fantastic old public house, very good selection of beers at a very reasonable price. Very friendly and helpful lady behind the bar. Must come back for a meal as the food looked delicious. Great view overlooking beautiful countryside from the beer garden
