Set just outside the village of Hartington on the A515 all on its own stands the Jug and Glass. We arrived late on a Friday night (having phoned to tell mein host that we would be late). From the moment we arrived, Stuart, Gwen and the girls did everything they possibly could to make everything perfect for us. After a short wait Whitby scampi and chips was served to the four of us. After a swift half, Stuart showed us to our rooms. The rooms are lovely, nice furniture and a comfy bed. None of your usual crappy chain hotel flat pack either. Nice on suite bathroom with huge fluffy towels and all spotlessly clean. After a brilliant nights sleep we had breakfast, which was as good if not better than dinner the night before. Quality ingredients and plenty of it.
After a day spent in Castleton (chaps walking, ladies shopping and lunching). We returned for a good hot bath (bath was plenty big enough for me and I am 6 foot 4) and dinner. I had a beautiful sirloin steak and all the trimmings followed by Bakewell pudding and ice cream. We then sat in the bar chatting to Stuart and Gwen. A more friendly host you will not find.
Before leaving on the Sunday we sampled their Sunday Lunch which was tasty well cooked and extremely good value.
Stuart and Gwen thank you very much, you made our weekend. We will be back.

As a post script I must add that this must be the only hotel in the Peak District that offers beautiful 360 degree views over the most beautiful part of the UK.

Room Tip: If you are going to be late then phone and tell Stuart.

I'm sure other people have had a good experience but we didn't. We turned up late and were told that they had to check the room had been 'made-up' before we could have it (it was 9.45 in the evening). Then we were shown to a room that was very cold, despite being summer. We turned the heating on to take the chill off, but there was no heat. The room was standard but unimaginative with a very narrow double bed and one of those incredibly shallow continental budget hotel style baths that save the owner hot water. The owner(?) was not at all welcoming and access to the room was via a rubbish/dumping area at the back of the pub. All this might have been okay if we had not been charged a ridiculous £120 and then discovered afterwards that was without breakfast. Breakfast was, apparently, going to be nearly £10 each in a dining room that looked cramped and unappealing, so we left early and went to a cafe in the nearest town instead. We really wish we had said no to the room, instead of being too tired, and gone elsewhere despite the late hour.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else

Hello Lawrence,

I have read your comments and have spoken to the staff. First of all the cut off time for check in is 8pm! and you had not booked as is the normal procedure. You arrived very late and the staff did their best to accommodate you. Unfortunately my wife and i were away at the time. I have noted your comments and you are correct in assuming that your comments about the rooms are not shared by many who come here. Nor are your comments about the dining room. The site at the rear of the premises is currently under renovation. I will however address your comments about any pricing issues in relation to the room and breakfast. Also could i just add that access to the rooms are via the rear door in order that the guests do not have to access though the front if they wish to unload their car more conveniently.

Best wishes,

Stuart

I dont wish to run the place down because we did enjoy our stay, but the following would improve the facilities greatly,
wifi is very poor and not availible in the room we could only get it in the main area,
breakfast was good but at £9.50 is a little on the high side for a country pub! maybe in london but not in derbyshire,
my wife had scampi and chips , chips were not good, fozen chips and some were still hard and at £10-95 felt alittle cheated, ( we did get a a free glass of wine because of the chips ) I had the pork chop at £15-95 tasted good ,
the bar area was alittle cramped and was been used as part of the restaurant, think it would work better if the bar was kept as a bar, with maybe a seperate bar menu while the 2 back rooms could be used as the restaurant,


excellent host and location, nice clean room and bathroom, nice views

Went on a walking weekend with friends. The owner was really helpful and friendly. The bar is small, but perfect for dinner and also for sitting comfortably for a drink.
The rooms were roomy, clean, good bathrooms.
For me, car parking is always important and the Jug & Glass has a large car park, plenty of space to leave your car during your stay.
Dinner menu was not overly complex, but the food was excellent and good value.
Real ale available, including a local Peak District beer. The Tissington Trail is close, along with other walks, so no need to drive anywhere once you are there, unless you have the need to visit a local town.
The place is on its own on the road, which is fine if you're staying there and using the facilities.
we will go again in the future. The Owner takes the running of the Jug & Glass seriously and will help wherever possible. Recommend.
