One of the delights of visiting the Peak District is to enjoy walks centered around visiting pubs.  There are many pubs to choose from in the Peak District and both the holiday cottages, Valley View and Riverside House, are within easy walk or drive to some great pubs. 

During our recent visit to the Peak District in January 2018 we visited some old favourites and reconnected with past haunts.  Here's our shortlist.

The George, Alstonfield

The new owners are delightful, friendly and welcoming.  They are keeping the tradition of excellent food, wine and beer going and are happy to welcome bookings from larger groups staying at Valley View holiday cottage.  There is a room to the side of the bar that can be booked along with a large stand alone room across the courtyard.  

The Devonshire Arms, Hartington

There's always a friendly welcome here from the cheerful landlord.  We visited the walker's bar with our dog but there is also a larger dining room available.  The pub food is of a consistently good standard and the beer is always well liked by the beer drinkers in our group.  

The Church Inn, Chelmorton

Another favourite of ours and ideal for guests staying at Riverside House holiday cottage.  Dogs are welcome in the bar area, the landlord is welcoming and the food is varied and good.  The rabbit pie special went down particularly well.  

The Old Gate Inn, Brassington

It's been over 10 years since we paid this pub a visit and we regret not going back sooner.  A roaring log fire, great beer and excellent food and service makes this pub well worth a visit.  Dogs are welcome too.  

Of course there are plenty of other lovely pubs to visit in the Peak District, and we can advise you when staying with us at our holiday cottages.  We've visited quite a few (all in a days work) so do ask us!

Do you love visiting traditional English pubs?  The Peak District has loads of pubs, many traditional, some modernised and plenty serving delicious hearty food.  Being a walking area many of the pubs in the Peak District welcome walkers and dogs so it's ideal for a day out, short break or longer stay, when you can take in one or a few pubs on a walk!

We've recently updated our list of recommended pubs with comments and suggestions that we hope you will find helpful.  Some of our favourites include the Red Lion, Litton; The Old Dog, Thorpe, The Church Inn, Chelmorton, The Coach and Horses, Fenny Bentley and The Devonshire Arms Hartington.

We base our reviews on friendliness of landlords and staff, quality and value of the food, range of beers and wines and how walker and dog friendly they are.  We also include some suggested walks to take in the pubs too.

One pub that is nearly on the list is The Angler's Rest in Milldale.  We are delighted that there are new reviews on Trip Advisor that are getting excellent comments.  Hopefully it will be on the list soon!

We are often asked by guests where are our favourite pubs for walks and a drink or for family and group meals out.  

Here's a couple of our favourite pubs in the Peak District.

The Red Lion at Litton may be small but it is exactly what a traditional pub should be.  Cosy rooms, log fires and lovely home cooked food. And located next to the pretty village green (and stocks!) it has to be on of our top places.  Dogs are welcome in the front bar.

The Monsal Head Stable bar is ideal for lunch as part of a day out along the traffic free Monsal Trail.  It is dog friendly, has spectacular views over the Monsal Viaduct and the home cooked food is delicious.  In the winter there's a log fire and in the summer you can sit outside.  They don't take bookings so get there early!

Some of our other favourite pubs in the Peak District include The Church Inn, Chelmorton, The Coach and Horses, Fenny Bentley, and for to die for food, The George at Alstonfield.
