Just returned from a work trip staying at the Lathkil Hotel, the staff can't do enough to help - we asked if they had grapefruit for breakfast, sadly not, but they went and bought some for us the next day. View is fantastic, rooms very comfortable, highly recommend.
Went for a relaxed meal with friends after a long walk. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Dog - friendly bar. Great atmosphere and stunning views. Good beer and food. Don’t know why I haven’t found this place earlier!
We were looking forward to eating here after a long walk in the rain! We were surprised that the restaurant was very empty on a Friday night. Food very disappointing for what it cost. Quality and quantity were very poor. Such a shame.
We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Lathkil hotel. Our room looked out on the amazing view across the beautiful Lathkil dale, despite being small it was clean and offered everything we needed. Staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good, although limited, had to preorder the night before. We were glad to be able to eat at the hotel each evening after each day of exploring. It seems a popular place with locals and walkers passing by. Such a quiet restful place we really relaxed, a beautiful area. Thank you
Stayed here for two nights, the room was clean and had everything we needed. The staff here are fantastic nothing is to much trouble. The food is amazing!! We will definitely be back. Thanks for a fab couple of days…………………………………………………………..
Called in for lunch today following a lovely walk. Stunning views from the hotel garden however thats all that was good. Had the quich off the specials which was ok but the red coleslaw was tasteless and past its best. Three dry new potatoes accompanied this, no butter or dressing, not worth eating. My partner had beef and horseradish ciabatta and cheesy chips. Both tasteless and again accompanied by rubbish red coleslaw. To top this off drink served in a cracked glass. Mentioned the glass being cracked when paying as we didn’t want anyone else being served this, however we were not asked about the food or we would have commented. Will not be returning.
I have very seldom written reviews, but felt that the Lathkil should be properly recognised. It just gets everything right. The attentiveness, kindness and enthusiasm of the staff, the delicious beer and food (just like you would hope your Mum or a favourite Aunt would make, lovingly prepared and tasty) -the steak and kidney pie and summer pudding were just legendary! The fabulous breakfasts are so good in every detail (we stayed five nights and dined here every evening) - the Derbyshire oatcake especially recommended. And of course the Lathkil has simply the best view of ANY pub we have ever been to ANYWHERE - just breathtaking (and we are seasoned pub visitors between us). The Wednesday night quiz is a must to attend - the pub keeps a great balance of locals and visitors, eaters and drinkers, and the local people are very welcoming and happy to chat to visitors. I could go on and on…..but if like our family, you love beautiful countryside, a long walk, good food and drink, and old fashioned, heartfelt hospitality without pretension, this is the perfect place for you.

Four of us called in here yesterday for lunch during a country walk. There seemed to be plenty of free tables, so in the absence of any signage or anyone to direct us, we obtained a table outside. Two of our party went inside and were spoken to quite rudely by a member of staff who didn’t seem to want our custom, but did begrudgingly bring us some menus. To cut a long story short, we were made to feel so unwelcome that we felt we couldn’t stay.
Lovely location. We are staying in the village and a local pub was a bonus. So after arriving we had a walk along the river and up over the fields back to the pub. Smashing evening great views as we sat in the garden. I like real ales and ordered a Monks Gold. Very disappointing, not really kept well I thought but just okay. Called in a agin after another long walk. High temps so a nice pint would be welcome. Wife enjoyed a larger and maybe that was the best option. I ordered a Blonde real ale and it really must have been on the turn unless their pipes needed cleaning. Left a nasty taste. With Covid the service is very different and so a quick word with bar staff as I would normally do was not really worth the bother. if on been presented with the bill afterwards I had been asked was everything okay I would have mentioned it. However, that question is reserved for those having food. We may call again with friends after a walk but I think I'll be having a Larger. Funny enough I heard from a friend who lives in the Peak District that other than the views he did not rate the Lathkill for it's real ales. Shame.…
Situated in a beautiful area of countryside with amazing views, the Lathkil Hotel is welcoming and comfortable. There are only four guest rooms. Ours was very well equipped and the staff were all friendly and helpful. Our only gripes were the unavailability of several wines from the list on our first night. Although the breakfasts are excellent, we did feel that the quality and selection of the lunch/dinner menu could be improved upon-it's all just a little TOO simple. Would still recommend however.
