Great food, great staff, beautifully located in Edale, fantastic for the outdoorsy and hiking community after a stint around Kinder and surrounding areas. Dog friendly, open fires, outside space, good beers......and the fruit crumble and Ice cream is just WOW!!!!

A lovely place to go for a drink &/or food after a walk. We visited in Jan. 2024 and could walk straight in and find a table, but in summer months it gets very busy so you may need to reserve in advance if you want to be sure of getting a table. A really nice selection of guest beers we're on offer when we visited, which were enjoyed in front of a lovely real fire. The staff are lovely and friendly. The pub does not operate a tab system, which means you order drinks and food at the bar and pay for it when ordering. Dogs are very welcome. There are a few vegan options available; I went for sausage and garlic mash with a tomato sauce - very much a gorgeous plateful after a tiring walk battling the wind. The only reason it did not get a 5 is that the wrong baguette was brought out for my partner, and whilst it was remedied quickly and without fuss, it wasn't as well prepared. However, overall, this is a great place to go whether after a walk or not.

The perfect rest stop after a rocky hike in the Peaks. A lovely warm welcome, the bar staff couldn’t have been friendlier. I had the Nag’s Cheeseburger with fries and it was delicious, the rest of the menu also sounded great with plenty of options. I’ll definitely be returning when I’m back in that neck of the woods.

Lovely warm pub with roaring fire, perfect after a long hike. They welcome muddy boots. We didn't eat but there was a sign outside saying they offer gluten free Sunday dinners so we will definitely be back

Great location in the peak district, central and ideal for the walks. Unfortunately, this was booked as part of a Christmas present and felt misled as this is not a cottage, it is a flat about the pub. The flat was well equipped, very dated, and thin uncomfortable thin mattress. It has a good bunk bed for our son. We were able to use a spare bunk bed mattress and sofa cushions to layer on top of the old mattress to make the second night a much more comfortable sleep. Thank you to the bar man who was very welcoming and very friendly, an asset to the pub owners. Plus, a thank you for letting us leave our personal belongings at the property. I hope this feedback helps for improving future stays. I recommend renaming the property as it is mis leading and leads to disappointment on arrival. Not want the start you want to a stay.
