We ate here early Thursday evening and had an enjoyable dinner. The menu offers the normal range of pub food and between us we had fish pie and steak all of of good quality. The steak was also cooked as specified, rare. The best thing though about the this pub was the very warm welcome you get on entering, and... More

Yes, it's on the hillside at Crowdecote and a bed in the road. When we went the place was full and I'm guessing that this not unusual. We failed to get in the car park but found a space across the road. We reserved our table by phone as we'd noticed it was not open on Monday and Tuesday. We... More

We came here on a Saturday night; we were camping about 10 minutes away and the pubs close to us were fully booked. We found this pub through Google and I'm so glad we did find it! Such a welcoming atmosphere, some great ales and cider on tap that we were talked through. Food was just really good, fresh pub... More

A group of us booked an evening meal here during a stay in Derbyshire. We received a warm welcome and excellent service. True pub food: substantial and tasty meals. No frills just good food and friendliness. This is obviously a real local which is well used and popular.

We had a great welcome by the landlord when we finally managed to get a parking space. Our meals were reasonably quickly served, and the chips were good, but otherwise it wasnt anything unexpected. Our table was sticky. For ordinary pub meals I feel they were a bit overpriced - £40 for three burgers and three shandies.

Staying in Buxton and looking for a good pub meal after a long day walking at Chatsworth House and Gardens. Excellent pub, really warm welcome, they were busy but found a table for us, near the blazing fire on a chilly evening. Food and service was great, husband and I had steak and ale pies and our son had sausages.... More

Went to the Packhorse inn on a very cold snowy evening. We were greeted by the owners and made so welcome, the lovely log fire just added to the cosy atmosphere. We ordered drinks and then enjoyed looking at the varied menu. The starters Thai fish cakes presented well and tasted lovely not soggy. The homemade soup with chunky FRESH... More

Chanced upon The Pack Horse on a cold, rainy return from visiting Buxton. It was warm and cosy, and the menu range, for a smallish village pub, was outstanding. On this occasion we wanted only a light lunch, and they provide a good selection of these - but light it wasn't! I had steak and chips with trimmings, and it... More

We met friends for lunch. On a cold, snowy day, we were made very welcome in this superbly cosy pub. The food, and especially the beef and merlot pie, was splendid, as was the 'Grave Diggers Ale'.
