So we visited recently after inviting our friends to our Holiday home. I’d seen the reviews and looked forward to a meal at the Carriages. Having been given a few days to think out the visit I’m still not sure overall what to think. The...food is nice, a good standard. In relation to the staff however they appeared very inexperienced and clearly hadn’t had much if any training. When our starters arrived they were all plonked at one end of the table leaving us to figure out who’s was who’s and us passing the plates around. When the mains arrived we think his chowder was a starter as it came with a portion chips. Sadly during the meal two dogs with separate families played an hour long game of bark tennis which was frustratingly as the staff didn’t appear to try and deal with it. When the plates were cleared away the young girl took my wife’s full glass of drink and had to hand it back. She then asked is if we wanted to take the unused sachets of salt & pepper home with us!! Lastly when the bill arrived we had been charged for a Diet Coke and pint of carling even though we were drinking pints of Madri. Overall nice meal but still not sure if we’ll ever return.More

We stopped for a quick bite to eat and were very impressed by the quality of the lunch. The steak and stilton sandwich was very good , with large pieces of tender meat and the lasagne was equally tasty. Both were served with a nice...fresh salad. The food was very reasonably priced and the lady who served us was very friendly and helpful. The good food together with very decent local beer made this a very good place for lunch. We would definitely come again.More

Would...defiantly recommend, if driving past calling in is a must!More

We found this fabulous restaurant while staying at Rivendale Lodge Retreat in the Peak District. After messaging them on Facebook, we had an instant reply and dined that evening. The restaurant is designed as two railway carriages, with individual dining pods. Very unique. As we...had our dog with us, we were sat in the main area, which was warm and welcoming. Everything is COVID secure. The food was incredible. We had the belly pork, burger and lasagne. We enjoyed it here so much that we booked to go again the following evening. This time we had steak, which was cooked to perfection with a Stilton sauce, lamb & mint pie, burger and seafood chowder. Again the quality was fantastic. I can’t recommend this place enough. 5 star food, service and atmosphere.More

We just visited for our anniversary dinner and am really pleasantly to surprised by the great food here. We initially came for the decor which is both fun and elegant. We Each course was beautifully presented, the fish dishes fresh, delicately seasoned but hearty enough...for a cold autumn night (seafood chowder was amazing!), salads were mega fresh too and beautifully dressed... staff all very friendly and welcoming, can’t wait to come back next time we stay in the area!!More
