Our first visit to the Derbyshire Dales, and staying at the 'D&P' Inn helped make it both memorable as well as comfortable. My first words were "this is so quaint", but once inside it becomes a 'Tardis' of comfort and friendliness. The staff were great, the food delicious and the accommodation was spotless. We will certainly go back and we...

Our 3rd visit here for a meal and, as on previous visits, we really enjoyed it. Good food, friendly staff, lovely setting. Our first visit was for afternoon tea and our last two visits inc. today, for Sunday lunch. We'll definitely be returning.

When you booked your amozan deal, you were told we were fully booked in the dinning room that evening, but as your voucher was running out we would do a table around 6. You booked a room later. As you said you looked at web site you would have realised as we are a 32 roomed hotel with our rooms...

Good host, great food and accommodation. Stayed with son and granddaughter in a large family suite that was great value.Had a very comfy sleep and very tasty food. Lots of choice on the breakfast and excellent standard. Evening meal also very good and wine list reasonably priced. Close to Alton Towers and certainly family friendly. Highly recommended.
