Three of us came for Sunday lunch on the recommendation of a friend who lives locally. We had an excellent time. The dining room is very nicely appointed, I loved how they have used engineering tools and components to emphasise the industrial history of the building. The bathroom was exceptionally clean, very nice to see. Between us we had the roast beef, the pork and the nut roast. The food was very good and very plentiful with 7 varieties of perfectly cooked vegetables to supplement the well cooked meat. The beef was medium rare, the pork had lovely crackling and my friend raved about the nut roast and he is not a vegetarian. We all had desserts, I had the special - a lemon tart with a berry sorbet, an excellent dish (see photo), the apple crumble was beautifully done, not too sweet, just how it should be. The trifle was ok, a poor choice on our part. The service levels were the best we have come across in the peaks. The staff have obviously been well trained. We had two large glasses of wine and with a tip the meal came to £30 a head, excellent value for what has been the best Sunday lunch we have had so far in our exploration of the watering holes of the peaks. We will certainly return.

We had a lovely 2 course meal at the Merchant's Yard for our 30th Wedding Anniversary and with cocktails at 2 for £10 we thought we might as well try 1 or 2 or 4 :)

Casual, but sophisticated restaurant - my favourite, along side Losehill Hall. The food is innovative, tasty and the portion size is good. Do try the souffles! If you want a cheaper option, the Early Bird Menu is amazing value and the food still excellent. There are some negative comments about service, but we have never had a problem and last night the restaurant was pretty full.

We had lunch in this delightful Bistro style resturant.

The service was casual but attentive. The resturant is larger than one first thinks on entering the bar area. There are a few comfortable areas to sit whilst you peruse the menu. Nice cloth napkins and each dish is served on a stylish plate to match the well-presented food. We had our meal from the early menu so two courses at a reasonable price. The wine on the other hand was on the pricy side.

The food started with some complimentary bread, made in house we were told. The starters were well presented and starter size portions. The fish and chips were beautiful the steak was on the small side and not the best steak I have taste.

Overall a very nice country resturant service good food with attentive service.
