Visit Peaks : Pubs, Restaurants, Food, Drink

We have been going to this pub for over 20 years and it is now a very foodie pub. There are some lovely outdoor seating areas for the summer months and for a special meal it is highly recommended.  Ideal for birthdays and anniversaries, larger groups can hire the back room.  Otherwise booking is a must. 

Pub menu items include locally reared roast beef, roast leg of Derbyshire reared lamb, Dovedale blue and red oinion tartlet, Trio of Tissington Sausage and much, much more.

The best thing is that The George is only a 15 minute walk from our Dovedale holiday accommodation, Valley View (paved lane) and it’s downhill all the way back!  We would recommend that you book a table for large groups for lunch and dinner as The George is very popular.

A great pub for the summer and families as there is an excellent outdoors play area.  It is also located right near Lathkill Dale, which has some stunning scenery and walks.  It is easy to park in the village so is a good starting and finishing point.  The pub serves good pub grub and dogs are welcome in the front as long as well behaved. 



A great local pub, with a very friendly welcome from the landlord.  Excellent food, good portions and really good value prices.  Dogs are welcome throughout the pub.  Well worth a visit if you are staying at Riverside House holiday cottage. 

And good news for 2017.  The landlord has recently taken over The Angler's Rest pub, which is about 20 minutes walk from Riverside House.  We will report back as soon as we can!


A great pitstop for walkers in Dovedale, located at the bottom of Millway Lane and a 2 minute stroll from our holiday accommodation, Valley View in Dovedale.  The café serves hot drinks, hot snacks, cold drinks, cakes, biscuits, postcards and more.

Another place that we’ve been going to for more than 20 years.  Set in the the charming valley of Dovedale with its’ own grounds and garden and the great news is that it now has new owners and has reopened recently (2014).

We would recommend walking from our Valley View self catering holiday house to The Izaak Walton as the walk takes you along the River Dove nearly all the way.  It will take about two hours each way, but it is reasonably flat and more experienced walkers might like to take the walk back via Thorpe Cloud and Bunster Hill.

You can enjoy stunning views of Thorpe Cloud and Bunster Hill from the garden in the summer and young children will enjoy racing around on the lawned area whilst adults can relax.  Afternoon teas are also offered and can be enjoyed on the lawns in summer months.
