Good Pub Guide Recommended
The same friendly family have been running this unpretentious hotel for 34 years from father down to daughter. Right at the heart of the Peak District National Park it's very popular with walkers and cyclists and many use the warm and comfortable bedrooms as a base; breakfasts are hearty. The views are spectacular and can be enjoyed from seats in the walled garden and from windows in the bar. The airy room on the right as you enter has a nice fire in an attractively carved fireplace, old-fashioned settles with upholstered cushions, chairs, black beams, a delft shelf of blue and white plates and some original prints and photographs. On the left, the sunny spacious dining area doubles as an evening restaurant and there's a woodburning stove. Adnams Ghost Ship, Navigation Arctic Blast, Pennine Natural Gold, and Storm Bosley Cloud on handpump, a reasonable range of wines (including mulled wine) and a decent selection of malt whiskies; background music, darts, TV and board games. Dogs are welcome, but muddy boots must be left in the lobby.
