We were meeting family in Buxton and just dropped in. We couldn't sit together as we hadn't booked and the pub was busy, but the food was hot, received fairly quickly and above all was really nice. Juicy steak, burgers. Recommend the black pudding salad.

The food was a let down, with frozen tasteless chips and the "tasty Yorkshire ham" arrived on the plate looking a little on the grey side. Neither of us could eat... More

Stopped here for a well earned pint after walking around Buxton for most of the afternoon. The pub has two main TV screens showing football when I was there. It's a decent size with tables outside at the front. My partner was a little disappointed as her soda and lime wasn't stirred and the lime settled at the bottom. Bar... More

Popped in today and ordered the Moroccan Salmon salad and a Steak & Ale Pie. The only thing Moroccan about the salmon was the poor thing looked like it had been left out in the Sahara to dry out and burn but at least it had some colour, unlike the insipid, flaccid membrane that passed for a puff pastry top...

This was what we expected it to be, a very typical pub with typical pub food. Iam not saying this is a bad thing, far from it because you know what your going to get. The staff were friendly & the locals too & the food adequate.

We went here for our evening meal and I must say it was really nice, well presented and hot. The staff were very attentive and asked us if everything was OK while we were eating good value for money too. We liked it that much we decided to stay for a few drinks and the beer was good too.
