Six of us enjoyed a meal at this lovely pub last night. The food was outstanding and so much of it, I can’t see how they do it for the money but the pub was full so that speaks for itself, better to have full...tables with very reasonably priced meals than an empty dining room because of the pricey menu. The corn fed chicken was delicious as were my companions meals. Friendly staff and great atmosphere. Dog friendly too. We will be back for sure!More

This was our first visit in this friendly pub.The food was excellent probably the best we have had out in a long time .We all had the sharing chicken wings for starters and me and my mum had the cod .My husband had the blade...of beef which all 3 of us enjoyed .The staff were all very friendly and would definitely come back just wish we would have tried it sooner.More

We ate 3 nights in a row here as we were saying in the village and didn’t want to use the car. To be honest I’m not sure anywhere else would have measured up. One page menu, but more than sufficient choices for all, meant...we didn’t have anything twice. Generous portions and the most amazing flavours! Just brilliant food. Don’t miss this little gem - but be sure to book in advance.More

We have been here 5 or 6 times for food and are never ever disappointed. Stunning food at great prices, we can't fault it. Sunday lunches are amazing but this time it was a Saturday lunch. We had to have a walk round Tissington afterwards...to work some off! It's a 45 minute drive from home but never ever disappoints. We will be back again soon. Flippin lovely ❤More

Got in for 4:15 on Sunday for their famous Sunday Roast and yet again superb. 2 beef dinners, a pork roast and a chicken dinner. All meats were superbly cooked and the accompanying veg selection and mash potatoes were clearly home cooked and made fresh...for each table. We had to wait 30 minutes for our meal but that shows how each set of meals are cooked fresh. It has to be one of Derbyshires finest Sunday roasts and we are already planning our next family trip there. The final piece of the jigsaw is that our dog is allowed in the dining area so we get to all go for a nice walk around the village and then enjoy a lovely family meal with our Westie. See you all again soon and thanks again.More

I go walking with work colleagues in the Peak District. I always insist on a pub lunch. This is my 4th such walk. I had the Cod Munro. It was absolutely lovely. High quality dining at a great price. The fish was lovely and flakey....The combination of vegetables and sauce was just magic. It is the best lunch time meal I have had out in many years. There is also a lovely Bassett Hound on the premises who also checks that you are having a great time. Just a great all round experience.More

Met friends here as a base for a walk so had no expectations about food. Although the menu was almost standard "pub grub" it was prepared to a high standard and very enjoyable. The waitress who also ran the bar was very pleasant and helpful.

Nowhere better for lunch after a walk. Every dish excellent. Very generous Fish and chips with light batter good chips and mushy peas, Cod Mornay perfectly cooked with a light cheese sauce excellent. Lamb tender and with a dense jus, lovely sweet potato roasts. The...side order of vegetables a big portion of absolutely faultless cabbage, chantenay carrots and peas. Sticky toffee pudding and syrup sponge light and again perfect in execution. All portions are massive. In fact they could easily reduce by 20% and it still be a good helping. Keep your Michelin pieces of art. Come here and have proper food properly cooked.More
