"The food was amazing cooked to perfection the staff were very nice and the place was very nice and fancy"

"Food was amazing cooked to perfection the two people on the bar and serving were really friendly and helpful amazing experience a must go for food and drinks thank you very much"

"My husband and I enjoyed a week away in the Peak District. I looked for pubs to enjoy a meal before we left home. We enjoyed a meal at a pub the 1st evening and then arrived at this pub to see how it compares. No comparison! It's off the beaten track, a lovely country pub delivering excellent service and the most mouth watering meals. My husband had a home made beautiful tomato soup and I enjoyed the very cheesy garlic bread for starters. Main course were the home made steak burgers, oh my god! Delicious . To finish we had sticky toffee pudding. I didn't manage to finish mine I was so full up! We met the chef and knowing where he used to work I'm not surprised by the quality of everything we had. We enjoyed it so much we decided to return The second meal was just as superb. Please remember to book online what with Covid and the menu is viewed on their website, no issue at all. However the owners will print you a copy off if no phone. A wonderful friendly, efficient, delicious family run pub that we would return to when in the area again."

"We went here on whim after visiting Thors's Cave. There was a short wait for a table due to social distancing but when seated staff were very friendly and catering to all our requests. The food was incredible and I would strongly recommendation the steak pie. If your ever visiting Wetton, we'll worth a trip here."
