The post code is a little misleading, but this is the only Hotel in the area - easy to see. This is a small but good solution for many especially walking. The hotel has a very good choice of beers, wines & together with a good selection of food. Will be happy to stay there again soon.

On a damp and foggy evening we has an early dinner at this traditional pub/restaurant. As soon as we walked in we were met by the wall of heat from the fireplace. Bliss. We had a soft drink whilst deciding what to eat. The OH went for a dish on the special board, pork belly with crackling on a bed... More

Visited for Sunday lunch in a party of 6. Quality of food was good and it was reasonably priced however only able to give 3 stars as we had to wait longer than we would have expected for the meals to arrive despite it not appearing to be too busy. Nice real fire next to the bar.

We stopped off here after a day roaming around the Peak District. The accommodation is in a building just off from the pub and although the room was small it was also very quaint and suited us. The food however let the place down. Sunday roast was quite dull and breakfast the next morning was just on the right side... More

This small hotel in northeast Cheshire is located in the countryside near the beautiful Peak District. With just 7 bedrooms, the hotel has old world charm.

Lovely welcome, lovely food - dinner and breakfast were delicious, very comfortable room with nice strong shower. If I were to be really picky, it was a little bit of a pain that the WiFi didn't reach the rooms. And although it is not the fault of the hotel - it might be helpful to know that there is no...

Ate here recently with my partner and his mother. He is in his sixties and hadn't been since he was a teenager. Upon entering he said it was like it hadn't changed at all but in a bad way, not good. It was tired looking and needed smartening up. We both love traditional, rustic charm, with lots of character and... More
