All we wanted was a quick lunch, but it was late which means most pubs have stopped serving. A chance pass by of the Dog and Partridge lead to a tremendous welcome from the owners and some freshly cooked food, which was perfectly good pub fare, served by the friendly staff - even the cook came to say hello. On...

Just returned from a two night stay here, after a last minute booking. Check in was straight forward and we were shown to our chalet in the grounds, where we were also able to park our car beside our accommodation. Breakfast was amazing, so much choice, and variety. All staff were really helpful, and pleasant. We ate in each evening,...

Stayed here for 2 nights in april. The room was basic but fine for a few days - all set in chalets next door to the main pub. Shower was very good and tea and coffee restocked. A great location for exploring the southern end of the peak district/ staffordshire moorlands. Restaurant menu good with a nice range of vegetarian...

We stayed here for 2 nights which was bought for us as a Christmas present. The chalet was separate from the pub, which meant it was quiet and away from the road. The one we stayed in was clean, tidy and comfortable. The breakfast was lovely, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They were always smiling, friendly and...

Just back from a weekend's walking. Stayed here with a couple of old friends. The suite was spot on for three blokes, a room each and a shared bathroom. Shower very good at getting the grit of the day off. Staff very relaxed and easy going but helpful too, food decent, especially the breakfast which is up there in terms...

After reading other reviews we were a bit concerned - which proved to be completely unfounded. Stayed with family for a two day visit to Alton Towers. Ideally located. Good selection offered on menus and for breakfast. Grandchildren loved the play area. Would return.

Sorry but we don't use salt in our cooking, we like customers to season with salt at table. We have no wifi in our rooms, but in three weeks we will have wifi in all of...
