  • A great place to visit. Disappointed with the quality of the food at the cafe though. Great coffee and location just need to sort out the food which I'm sure they will do.
  • Excellent walking and wonderful new cafe and play area. Lovely Geo Trails. Right on the high peak trail. Did in the cafe is superb. Tea is excellent too. Hurrah #GeoTastic
  • The stone centre is great. The Gastro pod is diabolical. Strong words perhaps but the food was terrible. The chef can not cook. The food wasn't cheap and all of us had Gastro poo's before we got home. What did you put in those scrambled eggs. Home made baked beans....chop raw onion, pour a tin of tomatoes, white beans and sugar and vinegar. Avocado on a full English. £20 of pure food filth. 0/10
  • Vastly improved and loving the food from the Gasto pod
  • Love the GastroPod breakfasts with a view!
