The Packhorse is an excellent local pub with firendly service and always excellent quality and tasty food and drink. It's also coping magnificently under the current restrictions - it feels safe while still retaining it's pre-covid charm. So happy it's open again.

Hi, you can walk up the Monsal trail from Bakewell to Little Longstone, it's probably around 4 miles and will take around an hour and half. There is roadside parking outside the pub. Make sure you book a table in advance.
