We've been meaning to visit for about six months and finally got around to it today. I'm thinking of an afternoon tea party in 2018 for my 40th so have started to look around for venues. We arrived to a friendly welcome and a great choice of cakes and drinks. We'd wish we had room for a sandwich as they... More

Stopped by on our way home from Chatsworth due to the Chatsworth farm restaurant being full. So glad we did, although the Smithy was nearly full we were served promptly and when the food arrived it was well presented and tasty. Will definitely be visiting when in the area again.

Stopped here on the way to Tideswell...A great cafe in a nice village with walks close by. Dog friendly which is great news for us. Log burner and smooth latte...What more could you want for on a cold November morning.. We will be back Paul, Sarah, Chester and Brody..x

A chance find driving past, saw the Old Smithy was dog friendly so about turned and stoooed for lunch. Made very welcome by the staff, food wonderful, Benjamin the Border Collie was given a biscuit too. Liked it so much, we went back the following day for lunch. More places should be like the Old Smithy. Well done to all... More

Lots of cyclists in and couple with their dogs, perfect place for stop... More

Called in today for very good coffee, as we have done before, but also had hot lunch of beer battered haddock, home-cut chunky chips, a delicious pea puree and chunky home-made tartar sauce with large pieces of gherkin and capers. This was one of the best fish and chip meals I've ever tasted, truly outstanding.

Called in on the off chance that they could feed 6 adults with 5 noisy children off the premises, this presented no problems. They took the order rapidly and were quite happy to oblige by doing it as a takeaway. The chips, ciabattas and coffees were delicious so we were able to take it all to the park opposite and... More
