Good Pub Guide Recommended
This is just the place to relax after walking around nearby Derwent Valley and Reservoir there are stunning views over the water and beyond from picnic sets on the terrace. Homely and old-fashioned, the locals' bar has an original boarded ceiling, pine tables, chairs and stools, old oak pews and a mahogany counter. The carpeted lounge bar (warmed by a woodburning stove) and restaurant are comfortably pubby with wheelback chairs, stripped-stone walls and picture windows that make the most of the lovely setting. Greene King Old Speckled Hen, Mordue Workie Ticket and Robinsons Dizzy Blonde on handpump, alongside ten wines by the glass, 20 malt whiskies and Weston's Old Rosie cider; darts, board games and background music. The comfortable bedrooms have fine views.
