  • Ordered a beef goulash which was fantastic. It has great views of the Derbyshire countryside and you can sit outside with your dog if you like.
  • Good but not outstanding food. Great views we have season tickets
  • We free annual pass holders and love coming back time after time. Always something new to make in the craft tent and plenty to keep the kids entertained. There is a cafe and restaurant at the top, so you can make a day of your trip
  • We loved it. Beautiful view is all around the restaurant. Lovely and tasty foods, and drinks and the price is no too bad. If you got kids I recommend this place. You can't take dog inside the the restaurant.
  • Was a great day out. Kids had a fantastic time and enjoyed going into the caves. 👌
