We have just come back from staying here at the attached campsite which is a good spacious area with plenty of fields and amazing views of Derbyshire. We were greeted by the owner and he was very cheery and very much a people person and this lasted all the weekend whenever we saw him, there was always a smile on his face.

We had a meal there on the night of our arrival and it is very popular and we can see why as it was a cosy little restaurant, our waitress was very cheerful and full of fun. The meals we had were all freshly cooked and very tasty with generous portions. I had the steak and stilton pie which was very meaty and my fiancee had the gammon which was also very moist and thickly cut. The chips were very nice and home made I am sure.

A very nice place to visit and I am sure we will return again soon.

Thanks to all
Tony & Kay

My husband and I have stayed at the campsite attached to the pub on four occasions over the last 6 months and each time we visit we eat at the pub.

The pub is very cosy with real fires, good beer and has a lovely restaurant.

The staff and the landlord are all very friendly and make you feel very welcome. Nothing is too much trouble.

There is a lovely menu with daily specials, together with a 'Golden/OAP' menu available Monday - Friday. Meals include beer battered fish (highly recommend!), steaks, pies, lasagne, gammon together a good variety of vegetarian meals including some gluten free. I have to say the homemade chips are the best I have ever had!

Food is served all day from midday to 20.30 all week.

The Sunday lunch menu is also served all day and is very good.

Looking forward to visiting the site and the pub again later in the year!

Highly recommend!

Stayed here on a short camping trip at the end of April to get away from the Royal wedding palava on the TV. Arrived at 10.30 and checked in with Derek, the pub landlord and host.
£5 per night for a 4 man tent is a fantastic rate for the location, and views to die for.
The toilet block though is terrible!, 1 male and 1 female toilet and 1 shower cubicle which gives you 5 minutes of hot water for a £1 coin.
We understand, after talking to Derek, that the Peak District Planning council will not allow him to extend or rebuild the old pig sty's, which would really benefit the site and enable me to give it a 100% rating.
The pub itself is charming, with an open fire in the bar and 1 real ale available amongst all other drinks.
We ate in the restaurant on the 2nd night and found the food tasty, homemade and reasonable value for money.
It is advisable to book a table on a friday or saturday as the place was full when we were there.
The campsite fields benefit from stunning views and are only a 10 minute drive into Buxton, or 25 minutes to Ashbourne.

Stayed at the Duke of York in our caravan, they have a lovely field at the back however as it was very wet and windy Derek, the landloard, kindly placed us in the car park. We stayed over the weekend and had a lovely time. There are lovely walks from the pub in all directions, our dog loved the open spaces and the walk along the Tissington trail, which was easily accessible from paths adjacent to the pub. We ate there both Fri and Saturday and cannot fault the beautiful home-cooked food. The home made chips are to die for! Will definitely go back again.
