Regulars at the Okeover Arms. We visited for lunch with friends after a walk in Dovedale. Lovely food as always! Our group included 6 adults and 2 Labradors and we were very well accommodated.

Visited the Okeover Arms after a muddy walk. They were very receptive to muddy people and dogs (there were as many dogs in the pub as people). Had some lunch and drinks, all very good.

We stayed overnight at the Okeover and enjoyed an excellent fish n chip supper and a comfortable night in room 4 (which is actually a double room, twin room and en suite). An excellent breakfast in the morning meant we couldn't resist a "hat trick" and after a good walk up hill and down dale we returned for some nice... More

Staff were really friendly and... More

Went here on a busy Saturday evening before Xmas. Had a traditional roast turkey dinner which was very generous and beautifully cooked. It was served piping hot by a very friendly waitress. I can understand why this place gets so busy ! Great job !

Family Xmas celebration here on Saturday, good pub food with very generous portions Various family members had most of the selections from the menu and all went down well. I had the broccoli and Stilton soup, then the pheasant which can (in other places) be a bit of a gamble, but this was terrific, very tasty and tender, and way... More

Have been on a number of occasions for dinner, lunch, Sunday lunch and lunch from the Christmas menu, always worth a visit. Would advise booking for Sunday lunch as very busy at times. A gluten free menu is available. Staff are very friendly.

We visited this pub on the advice of a car park attendant & were not disappointed. Always use local knowledge!! A lovely looking place with beautiful decor & charming staff. Not sure if the young man serving was the landlord but he certainly knew his stuff & was attentive but not too attentive. The girls (young ladies!) were equally as... More

A dining pub with a pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff also very dog friendly which excellent. Unfortunately, we were not particularly impressed with the food. We visited for Sunday lunch and had the roast. As we were late eating the only meat choice left was beef and although this was a newly cut into joint oh my goodness I don't... More
