We’re fortunate to have a great selection of pubs in the area, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to sample fine beers and great food…
If you’re planning to eat, we would recommend calling first…
The Quiet Woman, Earl Sterndale
A stroll down to our nearest village. No food (apart from crisps and pork pies…), but well worth a visit as it’s about as far away as you can get from today’s multi-media, multi-themed, branded experience. From time to time, you’ll find landlord and lady Ken and Jen serving ‘Nipper Ale’ – brewed in loving memory of their eponymous hound who sadly met his maker having got stuck up a drainpipe…
Royal Oak, Hurdlow (01298 83288)
On the High Peak Trail, a 40 minute stroll along the lane leading up the hill behind the house. Great food, great service and BIG portions ! Suggest you book in advance.
The Packhorse Inn, Crowdecote (01298 83618)
Very friendly and welcoming pub run by Mick and Sharon. We’ve enjoyed the food every time we’ve been !
The George, Alstonefield (01335 310205)
Lovely pub with good food – open every day. Close to Dovedale so can get busy !
The Watts-Russell Arms, Alstonefield (01335 310126)
Small, but perfectly formed - wonderful food from ‘eclectic menu’
The Greyhound Inn, Warslow (01298 687017)
Bright and airy; daily papers with your coffee and lovely food !
Coach & Horses, Fenny Bentley (01335 350246)
A bit more fancy but hits the spot. About 20 minute drive on the A515 towards Ashbourne.
Cock & Pullet, Sheldon (01629 814292)
Picture post card pub – room for larger groups. Sunday lunch buffet
Bulls Head, Monyash (01629 812372)
Large portions – we ate in the bar and there’s also a well-regarded restaurant. Can get really busy so you may have to be patient. We prefer The Old Smithy next door – see Tea Rooms below…
The Staffordshire Knott Inn, Sheen (01298 84329)
Just the other side of Sheen – beautiful views; varied (and delicious) menu
