This is a typical pub restaurant. When we were there it was noisy, particularly the crowd round the pool table who might have been watching TV. There was plenty of room, particularly if we had moved further back even though the town itself was busy. The staff was reasonably friendly and the food was good and reasonably priced.

We were on a walking weekend in the area and came in for lunch after coming from Padley Gorge area. It was carnival day and the pub was busy but managed to serve us all very efficiently. The food was good and the prices reasonable. The staff were very pleasant and nobody in our group of about fifteen had any... More

So glad did not stay here did not see the rooms. We stayed in the Plough which was a very good choice. We went for a drink in here the carnival was the next day. Very unfriendly barman served me with bad customer service. Had a very unfriendly feel about the place. Think this one is only for locals.

If I go for a drink in Hathersage, it's usually here. It's an average pub, friendly enough. They do accommodation also. I've eaten here in the past, but not recently.

This place is very odd. A collection of strange drinkers sit at the bar. Sure it is fine for young ones to play pool but we didn't even dare try the food as the beer was terrible

Stayed in the Frier Tuck double room, very nice indeed. Well presented with a comfortable bed and hot shower. Large choice of pub grub, ordered the sweet and sour chicken which was tasty and a large portion just what you need after a day out. All washed down with a cheeky ale. Friendly owner, staff and the locals where good... More
