When we visited Valley View holiday cottage in January we visited a few pubs, new and old and we were so impressed by the refurbished Greenman pub in Ashbourne that we wanted to write a blog on it.

We really cannot fault anything about our visit.  The pub is done out in a modern style and there's plenty of room around tables.  The open plan style kitchen allows you to watch the chefs at work and the staff are all very friendly.  In fact the service was excellent.

But it was the food that was so impressive.  Home made pate, venison pie, the best fish and chips my husband has ever had and all accompanied with wonderful wine.  Everything is made on site, including any of the smoking, curing, baking, bread and more.  And much of it is sourced locally.

If you are staying at Valley View holiday cottage or visiting Ashbourne in the Peak District, we highly recommend a visit to The Greenman.  It is an old coaching inn dating back to the eighteenth century, but it feels modern and welcoming.  It is part of a small complex, through the arch, which also includes Jack Rabbits cafe, run by the same team.  We haven't visited there yet, but it is on our list of places to try out too.
