We were looking for a dog friendly hotel for a night away to celebrate our anniversary - what a find this place was. The staff were really helpful - special mention for Tyler, what a nice guy. We opted for a Tapas selection which turned out to be a very good choice. We were a little concerned when we found...

We stayed here after a family visit. I booked the rooms not really know much about the place so was pleasantly surprised! Great staff, good restaurant and a 70s night was on (we didn't know this until we arrived!) but it made the night exceptional. Rooms were comfy and toiletries and water were provided. We will be back next year...

Unbeknown to us there was a 70's evening disco, just our era, and we boogied all night!! Dave (front of house) was very helpful as we're all the...

We have visited this resteraunt several times up until 1 year ago and we're very happy with the food and service. Our recent visit was dissapointing as the standards had dropped. We both had the steak and ale pie which was small cubes of chewy beef in a very salty gravy and no taste of ale. It was served in...

We have just had a truly wonderful family party - we were thoroughly spoiled by Jake Tyler and the team . the food and service were second to none. We are never disappointed but my family were bowled over by the whole experience. I would thoroughly recommend it to anybody.

It is now called Coco at The Shoulder now as it has changed hands and been bought by a chain based in Chesterfield. The pub has been pretty much taken over as a restaurant with a small bar and has been glammed up a little from the traditional pub it once was. I spent a couple of months here whilst...

Just had to try this venue! As heard so much about it, now that the venue has a new owner. I would rate the food and drink 'excellent' and the staff are really pleasant, in fact faultless, 10/10! Thank you Simon, I will be back soon. My advice if you get the chance, is to try it. Many thanks Phil...
