Good selection of beers, good choice on the menu. Friendly staff. Food arrived after a reasonable time, all spot on and very tasty. No faults at all, and that was for a table of 8 of us which can't be easy for any kitchen.

The food is excellent, I can recommend the beef in Guiness stew with the Stilton dumpling, And my sister loves the salmon with prawns. The...

The location is stunning, village is beautiful. Quite close to a caravan park and within walking distance. Unfortunately we missed the turning! We travelled by car with our dog and we were welcomed with open arms. The food was fantastic, well cooked and hot. A very good choice of food and the drinks were spot on. Lovely happy staff too....

We had stayed at the Church Inn around 7 or 8 years ago and have since dropped in for the occasional lunch time meal, so decided we should go back again for a few days. Great value, during the winter months they do 3 nights for the price of 2. The rooms have been refurbished since we last went and...

A rainy caravan weekend in Derbyshire, decided to pop in for Friday tea. Good choice. The food was delicious and filling. Had the Guinness stew with stilton dumpling. Was going to try dessert but too full. Reasonably priced and friendly staff. Definitely recommend to anyone staying in the area. Good choice on the menu and of beers too.

Got a recommendation to visit here and although its a bit out of the way it was worth a visit. Plenty of choice for food and drink - small menu but plenty of specials. Food was well cooked, and for Sunday lunch focused on the meat rather than the vegetables that were a bit of an afterthought! It can get...

We have been visiting this traditional village inn for several years and are happy to travel the 4 miles or so to eat here. Although we have never stayed at the Church Inn, we have spoken to many satisfied guests. But, back to the pub. Firstly, I'm reliably informed that the beers are good and I can vouch for the...
