Fairly poor offering the night we went! Pub food at its most average and sad. Lots of pre prepared frozen foods direct from the wholesaler I suspect.

A lovely country pub with a very impressive menu. Excellent home cooked food. A slight problem with a Bakewell tart that was overcooked but it was quickly replaced and did not appear on the bill.

Response from JustAboutTheFood | Property representative |
Approximately 10 minutes drive. Straight out on the A515 to Ashbourne and take the right hand turn sign posted to Crowdecote and Longnor. We are then approx 800 metres from the A515 just the other side of the little bridge.
