Great pub that always has a warm welcome - if you're lucky enough to be a regular they'll know your drink. The pub is spotless and tables and service ensures that it is kept that way.
Incredibly busy for Sunday Lunch so book early. Beer is pretty much limited to one or two ales on - Doom Bar when we were there - which is always well kept.
Traditional Pub food is supplemented by specials and a more adventurous menu and both kids and Older diners are catered for with smaller portions.
The pub is a haunt of the walkers on the nearby Roaches and well supported from both Leek and Buxton from which it is almost equi-distant. No issues with dirty boots!
Book early for food on the weekends to avoid disappointment.
