Traditional pub well placed for Lathkill Dale with super views, good range of beers and well liked food
Good Pub Guide Recommended
Not surprisingly, this unpretentious hotel is very popular with walkers as it's at the heart of the Peak District National Park; dogs are welcome, but muddy boots must be left in the lobby. The spectacular views 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. Blue Monkey Right Turn Clyde, Everards Tiger, Peak Swift Nick, Storm Bosley Cloud and Whim Hartington IPA on handpump, a reasonable range of wines (including mulled wine) and a decent selection of malt whiskies; background music, darts, TV and board games. The bedrooms are warm and comfortable and the breakfasts hearty.
