Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese Inn, Castleton


Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese is a family-run traditional  17th Century Coaching Inn located in the heart of the Peak District. If having a cosy pint in the countryside is what you’re after, then the Cheshire Cheese really is ideal.

Tickled Trout, Barlow


This is not your average countryside village pub- it comes with some delicious modern twists!  They serve Sourdough pizza, steak or a great juicy burger and chips, as well as being a lovely place for a drink. The Tickled Trout won’t disappoint a hungry belly or two.

The Old Hall & Peak Hotel, Hope Valley

Both of these Hope Valley pubs serve fresh, home-made food and both are Casque Marque accredited, so you know you’re in good hands.

There’s bound to be a beverage that tickles your fancy at the Peak Hotel; as there are five real ale pumps, several draft products, 30 different gins and a large collection of craft beer!

The Old Hall has six real ale pumps, several draft bottles and (rather impressively), the largest collection of single malt whiskeys in the Peak District.

Ye Old Dolphin Inne, Derby

Ye Olde Dolphin

The Olde Dolphin Inne was built in 1530, and still has the original  beams, heavy stone flooring, wood panelling and etched leaded windows. The hundreds of years Ye Old Dolphin has been serving up pints really do fill it with character and history, and making it a lovely setting for a drink.
