Had supper here with a friend after a long day walking in Derbyshire. Casual but pleasant and the food was more than acceptable. Good range of beers and the red wine wasn't bad either. Reasonable prices and friendly service.

this is a great venue if you are looking for a basic no frills menu - good choice of beer & dog friendly, but majority of meals are "pinged".

We were a little sceptical that this pub would offer decent food for the price but we were proved wrong. We had the grilled salmon and the beef ribs both which were totally delicious . Service was also great.
