Visit Peaks : Pubs, Restaurants, Food, Drink
This has got to be our favourite pub in the Peak district! Great home cooked food, fabulous steak and kidney pie, lamb shank, home-made chips, choice of two roast dinners all day on Sunday, daily specials. We love the beer here too, and the landlady and resident labrador are very welcoming. Try to get here early at weekends and in holiday times as it can get busy and you might be disappointed. In good weather you can sit out at bar tables on the green and enjoy the watching the world go by! You can walk from Riverside House our holiday accommodation in Litton Mill along Tideswell Dale or up the steeper Litton Slack. Both walks should take no more than 45 minutes or less depending on fitness!

A very pleasant interior, set out well for different groups of diners and welcoming, friendly staff. The food is excellent as is the beer. Dogs are welcome in the tap room. This is Derbyshire Life's pub of the year for 2016, so it is well worth a visit. It is about 10 minutes off the Monsal Trail, so makes a good walk of about one hour each way from Riverside House holiday cottage.

Just off the Tissington Trail, which is a lovely traffic free walking or cycling trail and easily accessible from our holiday cottage, Valley View. A tastefully modernised version of a traditional country pub, complete with sheepskin fleeces, candles, log fire and industrial beams! There is a limited menu (but this may well change) and we particularly love the burgers here and the best cappuccino ever! There are good beers, including craft beers and the whole of the pub is dog friendly. Bookings not taken, but the pub is large so we've never had a problem getting in.
