First time at the Cow and we were not disappointed. The food was innovative and superbly cooked. Low score for the atmosphere due to the fact that for the most part of the meal we were the only diners. Hope we'll be able to 'up' that score on subsequent visits.

Really lovely food and service as always. Made us feel welcome with our pooch. The only thing I’d like to change is that I think the music should be a little louder, I felt like I had to talk quite quietly to my husband across the table as there was not much background noise. Other than that, perfect!

Very comfortable bedrooms and good food in lovely refurbished pub in a quiet, attractive village. What’s not to like.

Really excellent hostelry with large, stylish well equipped and comfortable rooms. Nothing-too-much-trouble attitude by the cheery staff. Delicious food, very good wine and all excellent value. We’re delighted we chose to stay two nights.

Lovely place to stay as our stop over on our way to Durham. Fabulously comfy rooms but would have loved a feather pillow. Menu a little limited on main courses but would definitely return.

We loved everything except the noise from the kitchen fan extracter. We were in room 12 which sounded like it was directly above the kitchen. We would love to stay again if vising the area, but would choose a different room.

What a fantastic pub. We stayed in one of the rooms which was beautifully decorated, lovely finishing touches including nespresso machines and Molton Brown toiletries, and proper milk! The bed was amazingly comfie and the area so tranquil. The food was delicious and plentiful and the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. A real gem and we will be back .

What a wonderful little find. Wonderful staff and a not to extensive menu which helps focusing the choice. Highly recommended and will return when we come back to Derbyshire.

Food quality Salmon starter was nice Roast beef was excellent Cheeseboard - very boring selection and quite tasteless Disappointing that I had to ask for the wine list Disappointing that the wine came when we where half way through our roast dinner - offered 25% off the wine price - accepted - would have preferred to have earlier though

Without doubt the finest Sunday Dinner I have had at a restaurant. The service was exemplary and the staff accommodated our group of 6 which included a new born and a toddler. Very happy with the overall experience and will be booking again.
