Me and my wife visited several times over the weekend whilst staying over in Buxton and could not fault the food or the staff. The carvery was expectional and nothing was too much trouble for the team that work there. Would recommend to anyone.

Food was decent and portions were good. The lasagne in particular could have fed two. They run specials on weekdays which make it great value
