    Property condition


    Friendly pub and very welcoming. Extremely close to the railway which was a bonus for us. Don’t know if it was because it was out of season but very limited on choice of real ales ( i.e only one available when we visited) and only one choice of wine. Can highly recommend the breakfast it was very good. Would definitely go back.

    4/5 Good

    Perfect for an overnight stay before the Churnet Valley railway experience, as the station is just next door. Comfy room, friendly staff, full English in the morning, all at a reasonable price. It's also a local pub of course.
