We live 3 miles (walk) from this pub and use it as our preferred walk and lunch venue from home when friends visit. Quality beer, friendly welcome and pretty decent pub grub make it a good spot especially if the weather works for sitting outside. Also been for dinner which is homely rather than great but certainly nothing to criticise.... More

We were there with 5 adults, 3 kids and a baby and we accommodated (probably wisely!) in a separate room off the bar. The service was good and the food was excellent. Good kids menu and the hanging kebabs are recommended!

Service could have been quicker, but they managed to cater for a very large group, and the food was good when it arrived. A popular atmospheric pub, with generous and well presented food.

I live in Hong Kong but return to Derbyshire to see family two or three times a year. A visit (or more than one) to the Jug and Glass is always on the list of things to do when I'm back. Every visit I have always had a warm welcome and good food at reasonable prices. My eight-year-old son loves... More

We live not far from the jug and glass and often visit at weekend for a leisurely pint. We had a German visitor staying with us and decided to go to jug and glass for an evening meal on a Saturday night. Although they were busy and we had not booked we quickly had a table, drinks and a menu... More

Nice greeting and friendly service. Lunch was ok and reasonably enjoyable. Lamb Rogan Josh and Fish pie both nice but a little dearer than some pubs with nothing extra for the increased price. There was no pie available so on leaving I said that I would like to return and try the 'Homemade' pie on the board only to be... More

we booked in advance for an evening meal for 26, Landlord gave us a private room. The food was excellent, service cannot be faulted. They coped exceedingly well with our large group, all food tasty, well presented. Choice of local hand pulled ales. The pub was a short walk uphill from Pear tree farm where we were staying, just far... More

A beautiful old country pub/restaurant that allows dogs in the bar area. Good selection of beers and a good range of choices on the menu. Not over priced.

Stopped here for lunch whilst on a walk. It was a Friday lunchtime and sadly the place was very quiet but times are hard in the pub world. Friendly barman/ landlord and a good choice of food from full meals to light bites. My chilli was delicious. This place is how pubs should be - traditionally decorated, welcoming and serving...
