There are plenty of places to eat and enjoy a drink in the Peak District; these are some of our favourites ....

For dog lovers The Monsal Head Hotel Stable Bar is great.  Dogs are allowed in all areas and there are even free doggie biscuits at the bar. For two-legged guests the food is fantastic, as is the beer and wine.  And of course the location is pretty special with fabulous view over the Monsal viaduct and the Monsal Trail as well as being a great point for starting or breaking a walk.  There is plenty of parking. 

For foodies Rowley's of Baslow is well worth a visit.  Fresh seasonal food using local ingredients in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.  They also appear in the Sheffield Cook Book, a book celebrating great food in the Peak District and Sheffield area.

For tea the Old Coach House tearooms in Tissington is ideal for the whole family.  In the summer you can sit outside and dogs are then welcome too.  There is great choice of cakes, scones, cream teas, coffees as well as lunches too.  Why not wander around Tissington?  It is a delightful village with a lovely pond and shops as well as some good walks.  There is plenty of off street parking. 

For an evening drink, there are so many great Peak District pubs to choose from.  The George in Alstonfield could easily be included in the foodies section above as the food here is some of the best in the Peak District.  For a good typical pub with friendly staff and with food available too, one of our favourites is The Red Lion in Litton.  We've been going for nearly 20 years now and it never fails us.  The beer is good, as is the wine, and the food is always of a good pub standard.  Dogs are also welcome in the front area of the bar.  On a summers evening it is lovely to sit outside and admire the green in Litton. 

All our recommendations are based on our local knowledge and all the places mentioned can easily be accessed from our holiday cottages, Riverside House or Valley View.   We have also produced some top 10 guides to our favourite dog friendly pubs, cafes and farmers markets and food shops.  Take a look at our top 10 guides of the Peak District for more information.

There are plenty of places to eat and enjoy a drink in the Peak District; these are some of our favourites .....

  • For dog lovers - The Red Lion at Litton is simply a fantastic traditional pub with real ale, real food and a real fire.  Dogs can sit and relax in the front area of the pub after a great walk in the country.
  • For foodies a visit to The Chatsworth Farm shop is a must to stock up on some fine quality meat and game, deli items, vegetables, cheeses and drinks to take home for an indulgent self catered meal at the holiday cottages.
  • For tea a visit to the Old Coach House tea rooms in Tissington is a must - there's lots of lovely cakes, scones as well as lunch options. Why not explore the delightful village of Tissington with its' green, local shops and duck pond while there?
  • For an evening drink at a pub there are so many options, but the Stable Bar at Monsal Head is one of our favourites, as well as the Red Lion mentioned above or the Church Inn at Chelmorton.  Far too many to mention!
  • For a night out try Felicini a lovely Italian restaurant in Bakewell even with its' own log burner in the centre of the restaurant.  The pizzas are gorgeous as is the anti pasti and wine! 

All of the recommendations are based on our local knowledge and are tried and tested by us - no hardship! All can be easily accessed from either of our holiday cottages, Riverside House or Valley View. The Red Lion is closer to Riverside House, but worth a trip if you want to find a 'real' pub in the heart of the Peak District.
