Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Old fashioned English pub with a warm welcome. The decor is rather dated, to say the least, but it is homely and comfortable which I will take over modernised every day. They have free WiFi and contactless payments so they modernise where necessary. There are...amusing signs all over the pub which I will post if we can add a picture. My wife and I visited with our dog for an evening meal on a wet November evening. Although we arrived 10 minutes after they stop serving dinner (7.30pm) they kindly accommodated us. One great portion of haddock and chips and a wholesome bangers & mash later, we were full! Good beer as well. Highly recommended.More

Cheap, cheerful, nothing fancy, no frills. The bar staff were getting on with their job but were friendly enough & polite. My husband loved the beer.

Spoke to two members of staff who were both rude. They were quite busy and weren’t interested in new customers and turned down new customers despite having tables free.

It's a very friendly and cozy place with nicely cooked food. We can tell all food are freshly prepared in the kitchen after order. The portion is very generous and price is super reasonable. Our total bill with drinks and 5 mains came to £70....Would definitely come back in the future. However, there are not many tables so a booking is recommended.More

We stayed at the campsite behind the pub. Large grass pitches, shower rooms available which were basic but clean. Brilliant walks on the doorstep. We ate at the pub on the Saturday night, good home cooked food. Live music on and a good friendly mix...of tourists and locals. Would definitely recommendMore

We stayed in the campsite with our campervan Lovely site, friendly, quiet, clean and tidy Lots of walks straight from campsite through wildflower meadows down to the river Dove or up onto the tissington trail. When we came to leave we found we had a...flat battery but the staff couldn’t have been more helpful- first by trying to get us started and then letting us use the pub landline to organise assistance as we had no mobile signal. We can’t thank them enough!More

Small site with an old style collection of facilities all kept very clean. Food plentiful and good, and very helpful staff. Books and dvds to borrow, events on site, good walking and cycling. Friendly atmosphere. Recommended for anyone wanting a base to holiday from.

A great traditional pub - not many of them left so pleased to see it. Great welcome from the bar staff and decent prices. The food looked great - didn't have any as we had already booked elsewhere. If only I still had my campervan...as I would visit again and stop in their 'campsite'.More
