A great village pub with good beer and excellent value food. A pub which is obviously popular with the locals but where everyone receives a warm welcome. Wish his pub was in my village.

Situated in Sheldon, about a miles drive out of Bakewell, this truly is one of those hidden gems! Okay, so it might lack the refinement of a rated hotel, but it comes with bags of local charm and character... Food came super fast, and was...delicious...nothing fancy except good honest pub grub, and lots of it! We had such a fantastic time just being among the locals, listening to their tales and every day lives, that I'm not even going to criticize that we had to ask for the desert menu about 15 mins after we finished the meal! We just sat by the open fire soaking up the atmosphere of a true Derbyshire local... Would hesitate recommending this place if you want s taste of the real peak District culture!More

Lovely little pub with very friendly and helpfully staff. There was seven of us with 2 dogs and we were made to feel Very welcome amongst all the locals. Good choice on the menu. Six of us had the sirloin steak which although a Little...overcooked it was very tasty and served with some Good accompaniments. Very quick service and very reasonably priced. £12.95 for the steak. We come from Suffolk and you wouldn’t get it for that price here!! We are defiantly going back to the Peak District and will definitely visit the Cock and Pullet again.More

we booked here for a mid week treat and it as just that, a treat. As we are 'distancing' at this time and the pub is a traditional small building their measures were more than adequate. Screens around the bar and also next to some...tables to give a shielding effect worked well. This is a beautiful little traditional pub the kind you don't often come across these days. The beer (Landords) was kept perfectly and went down a treat, also the wine I am informed was the same.The food was delicious, local gammon is as good as any I have tasted followed by their apple crumble which was home made and perfect, I had the ice cream with it others having custard. The service both behind the bar and at the table was friendly and efficient. Food in the week started at 6pm. So with great food, great drink and great staff we'll be back.More

We stopped in for lunch after a wet and chilly walk - chose from a simple bar menu and enjoyed the food very much sitting close to the glowing fire. There was a quiet welcome and a friendly exchange with the bar staff. The pub...was clean and beautifully kept, it's a traditional style bar and has lots of different clocks as a point of interest. I'm sure it's very popular with walkers in the warmer months but we loved it as a cosy refuge on a chilly winter day.More

Good to visit a traditional British pub. Roaring fire. Well kept beer and well cooked pub grub. Out of the way but popular. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Good for walkers

We stopped for a very well deserved drink after the coldest wettest walk! The place is so warm and welcoming with a lovely open fire and plenty of seating. It's old fashioned no.plastic pub chain feel. Authentic, with very well kept beers and drinks. It's...obviously the place to go after work if you are interested the farming sector as it soon filled up with thirsty farmers. The atmosphere was really nice a hum of excited talk and relaxing. We will be popping back to sample the food.More

Called for a lunch and were not disappointed. The setting is warm and welcoming with a large open fire in the range. Plenty of tables and seating and a good menu, both in variety and value. Portions were good and the pie particularly enjoyable. A...place we are likely to return to in the future.More
