Have visited this inn on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is exceptional. The landlord and staff are really friendly and cannot do enough for you. Never had a bad meal. It really is a little gem in the Peak District..

We went here as a fairly large family party.. (6 adults, 1 child, 1 baby and 2 dogs). Can I first of all praise the staff for a really prompt reply when I emailed them to ask if they were dog friendly.

My wife and I recently had lunch at The Church Inn .Whilst the food was good it was not brilliant but the biggest disappointment was the cost . Over £34 for two meals of braised beef, one glass of the house white and a pint of beer.

I am extremely sorry to hear of your disappointment, however must point out that the beef braised in guinness is one of the more expensive meals on our menu and all the prices are shown, meaning you would of had an estimated price for you meal before ordering.

A great place, at the end of the village, opposite the quiet churchyard. The food was excellent, and reasonably priced, the service was friendly. We were most impressed.

This pub serves top quality pub food with plenty of meat & two + veg with gravy. as well as the standard fare. Main course was too generous to attempt the puds but they looked good and some old favourites like B&B pud & jam roly poly with custard were on offer. Service good too.

Wow, what amazing comments! Thank you.

I am sorry to read your comments. Totally unjustifiable by the way!!! The specials board is hand written and changing daily.

We have nothing on our menu at either £9.99... More
