Our birthday celebratory Sunday lunch was as good as ever, we have been many times,but unfortunately our enjoyment of the meal was somewhat spoilt by the racket created by the group of 10 or 12 young women on the next table.I know there's nothing you can do about this, but it was disappointing, we couldn't wait to get out.

I struggled to manage my main as it was large (which isn’t a negative) but afterwards I was told you do half portions! I just wish I was informed before ordering!

I didn’t give 5 stars for food and drink as we ordered a lasagna after being reassured there were no mushrooms in it. However unbeknown to the service staff the chef had added mushrooms (not the usual recipe). Having said that it was delicious after rooting out the mushrooms. The staff couldn’t have been nicer about it and even offered a frree sweet to compensate but we didn’t accept this. We will be returning as we love this place.

We had just finished a circular walk via Osmaston and worked up an appetite. Although the pub was very busy the service was excellent and attentive. We did not have long to wait for our food. We had all chosen the beef which was pink and hot, perfect. We will visit again
