So rare to find a proper local pub that still exists. Well worth a detour off the A6 if you are passing and a must if you are staying nearby. The food is simple but the best pub food I’ve had for a while. If...we want places like the Queens Arms to survive post-COVID then it’s important to support them while they still exist.More

We as a family were staying at the nearby Moor Grange Farm and would just like to thank all at the Queens Arms for accommodating us and providing us with an absolutely excellent Sunday Roast! Everyone of our group thoroughly enjoyed the food in a...cosy, but Covid safe atmosphere. Nice friendly service in wonderful rural surroundings! If we find ourselves in the area again, we know where to come, thanks again xMore

I have had Sunday lunch in the Queens on quite a number of occasions. The food has been excellent. The staff have been more than welcoming and have at times entertained my Springer Spaniel while we had lunch. Would recommend this for food, warm welcome...and dog friendly. PlantyMore

Firstly I would like to thank the landlords Steve & Jane, and staff for their hospitality and the local drinkers who make the atmosphere within the Queens Arms such a friendly pleasant place to be. The food was really nice home cooked and plentiful, would...definitely recommend to anyone thinking of a night out. We had three great nights but sadly our planned 4th night was stopped due to the COVID19 government actions to close pubs. Since we still had another night to go in the village, they provided an excellent takeaway meal for us to heat up the following night. When all pubs reopen in the future, I would strongly urge people to visit the Queens Arms and support them during this difficult period to keep the community lifeline going. I'll be back and can't wait. Thank you all.More

We spent a lovely evening in this quaint pub. It is a long time since I walked into a pub where everyone said hello. The owners were great hosts, in fact Steve came and collected us from our campsite! The food was delicious, our dogs...were made very welcome. A great evening for us. Steve also dropped us back. There are not many little pubs like this left. Friendly and full of characterMore

If you want a fantastic homemade pie (not the usual microwave rubbish) or roast dinner then this is the place. Had a lot of these in various pubs and never bettered when it comes to these two. With the roast dinner you don't even have...to decide which meat you want as you can have all three. Everything including the deserts are homemade - the Bakewell sponge pudding (unusual spin on the normal one) is to die for. Fully & Highly recommended for those looking for a hearty meal.More

A friendly welcome, honest, home cooked food and good value.... the roasts were particularly impressive. Great village pub.

Friendly staff. Lovely woodstove fire and simple but good quality food. Worth a visit if in the area for evening drink or weekend lunch stop

Fantastic three meat Sunday roast. The meat was in a giant yorkie pud and came with carrots, peas, parsnips, cauliflower cheese stuffing, a big roastie and a big pig in blanket! Finished off with a homemade bakewell sponge drowned in custard and a nice local...cask ale. Fantastic meal for £19. Very homely feel, a little dated decor, but very cosy with a big fire. Staff were top notch - very friendly and welcoming. Wouldn’t have known it was there if I hadn’t seen the small sign on the A6 - but glad I did!More

Just been for a Sunday lunch which was delicious. Very tender meat and a good selection of veg cooked perfectly, in fact one of the best pub lunches I’ve had in a long time. The owners were lovely and friendly and it feels like you’ve...just popped back home. Taddington is a pretty little village with the Queen’s Arms at it’s heart. If you are travelling to Buxton or the area do take the time for a visit. (Dogs are very welcome too.)More

Sorry to hear that you found it necessary to post such a bad review on this page about my village pub and the fact that you had such a bad experience. But please let me point out a few facts in our defence! Firstly - Dead at Lunch Time - well we are in the middle of the countryside and are not always busy for the 12 hours of the day that we are open! - Secondly - Damp Dog and Toilets - Damp dog ( not heard this one before ) but we have a lot of walkers in the area and rivers nearby like you said it was a hot summers day! We are a dog friendly pub like we have to be for living in the Peak District! so a little bit out of our control. As for our toilets, They are cleaned every night with bleach and mopping and are also checked on a regular basis throughout the day!! Thirdly - Bar Staff unfriendly - there is only myself and my daughter here - and we try our best at all times to be pleasant to even the most bad tempered customers! as for short measures on beer - we make it a rule that we pour a pint, let it settle and then top it up - Cold Tea - not sure how the tea can be cold if as it always is made with hot water at the time - and the chipped cup - would never send a cup out that was chipped - and finally as for the cheese and ham sandwiches being stale - we never serve sandwiches, only baguettes. Was upset to see this review until I read your past reviews on establishments that you had visited and realised that 95% of them were worded the same! hope you find somewhere in the future that meets all your requirements
