We walked to here from dovedale and it was a nice little halfway spot to stop for a drinks and icecream. Icecream tastied great. Payment is cash only so bare that in mind if you want to stop there for food and drinks.

It's the place you really want to find when you've been hiking through the Peak District. The ice-creams hit the spot, as do the hot pasties... Make sure and bring some cash though, being very very rural the internet is almost non existent so paying...by card is iffyMore

Visited Milldale today as this was home to some of my ancestors, who were involved in the building of Duck cottage. Had tea and cake which we drank/ate by the river. The young chap who served us was very polite and chatty. Tea was a...good brew!More

Visited earlier today for two ice creams. Cherry bakewell flavour and rum and raisin. Both were amazing. Highly recommend supporting this lovely little local business

Myself and my family visited Milldale today. We sat and watched the ducks while enjoying a cracking cuppa and delicious hot pasty for lunch. The owners are wonderful and so thoughtful. Really lovely customer service. Despite it clearly being a popular place for tourists qnd...walkers it maintains it's blissful tranquility and Polly's reflects that with their easy going nature and eye for detail. Absolutely love the place and will be back regularly.More

Stumbled across Pollys whilst walking. Fabulous! Serving takeaways as COVID, but had lovely teas, Staffordshire pasty and jumbo sausage roll. Great to sit by the River Dove to enjoy. Great little business. Well done.
