Met a friend who was local to Cromford. Roaring fire that the dogs thoroughly lapped up as well as all the fuss they received. Thursday certainly draws the crowds for quiz night at 20:30. All good fun for a pound.

Good pub grub served in a traditional pub. We had dogs with us which were welcome here and in fact there were quite a few others to meet as well!

We booked The Boat Inn as we were in the area and they were dog friendly. Good menu choice, good food, good service and good ambience. It was all good and we would go again!

Lovely log fires, food really good, friendly host and dogs welcome. What more could you ask for? Would reccomend this pub as the menu is varied, one person had fish and chips, one had steak, one chicken and one curry. All were really good.

We visit Cromford for a week once or twice a year and have never been disappointed here. This is a traditional pub with an exceptionally warm welcome from Lorraine the landlady and her staff. She keeps a good range of ales which are very reasonably...More
