Such lovely service, all your team were so friendly. Mum loved her gluten free fish and chips, only thing that could have been better was my falafel we're a bit over done but overall a great experience, would recommend and return.

We were meeting family in Bakewell and as it turned out the weather was dreadful, however, we arrived at the Pub early and were made most welcome. It was definitely a “bolt hole” from the wind and rain.

The Wheatsheaf was perfect for our needs. Staff were friendly and attentive and the food was really well prepared. The menu was just right for a special lunch with people we had not been able to see for the last two Covid years!

1st time in this pub and was amazed at how lovely it was inside. Lovely atmosphere and deco. Thank you to the lady that bought a balloon and decorated our table. That was really a nice touch. Hope to visit again. I do a lot of walking around this area and would love to come again. Thank you.

An excellent evening, the food and service were fantastic as always and on Saturday we had the added benefit of being able to watch Emma Raducanu win the US Open. Highly recommended and I look forward to returning in October.

We loved it so much on our first night here we returned for another too. The staff were all lovely and really helpful with my intolerances and the chef really accommodating. I could not have asked for more. All three staff that served us each night were so friendly and spent time chatting to us. Thank you so much

The staff were very friendly and it is a very clean pub. The atmosphere is very good too, my only issue was how long it took for our food to come out. We only had burger and chips and a pie and chips and it took 45 minutes, bearing in mind we was only the second table to be served as we ordered at 12 o clock. The food was nice but at around £16 for each meal it was a bit over priced in my opinion.

We visited on a bank holiday so expected was very busy. Wait time was 30-40 minutes which was fine. When the food arrived some of it was cold as it had been waiting for service Didn’t send it back as the wait would have been longer. Pity as the quality of the food was good. However not great value for money. Bit overpriced but guess it’s the going rate for a popular village pub. Plenty of room inside and pleasant serving staff.

Bar staff friendly. Selection of drinks good. Good overall good. We felt it frustrating to wait 1 hour from food order to food service having been told there was no issue to order earlier than our booked time. Had this time delay on service delivery been communicated, we would have been comfortable to wait patiently. To be told having already waited 45 minutes the reason for the delay was that the pies are cooked from fresh felt a very late explanation. Had this fact been explained at the point of ordering that would have been fine, or even indicated on the menu that certain dishes require longer cooking time. Our advice would be to just manage customer expectations to avoid disappointment. Overall fine time, but frustrating on meals delivery.

I was a little disappointed after eating at the sister pub, The Robin Hood in Baslow last year. We were meeting with old friends, which was the main reason for the occasion, so the food was secondary to the convenience of the location. However, our orders took well over 30 minutes to arrive. If there were staff shortages, I would not have minded being told and would understand. My steak and ale pie was satisfactory, but not memorable. The presentation could have been better, with the peas not scattered all over the plate. The staff, when present, were attentive. The policy of charging for the meal when ordering makes it hard to tip, because I do this after I have had a meal and enjoyed it.

Breakfasts we're OK but not spectacular. Great to see a variety of Gluten Free choices. The veg breakfast was a bit disappointing : everything was a bit dry (sausages, hash browns, mushroom and oatcake). I think they had been left to keep warm. Tea wasn't nice. Tasted like it hadn't had proper boiling water. Staff were friendly and attentive.
