I didn't know about this pub, or village, until I came across it using a guide book on Pub Walks in the Peak District. Called in on a Sunday lunchtime on our walk, and drank excellent beer with pork pie and a ham roll - all very good quality - and chatted with friendly locals in the public bar. It... More

The beer was good - nice choices, something for everyone. It's a locals pub in the winter, tucked away as it is, in the... More

Visited Sunday lunch time with friends and their 2 dogs, packed bar full of friendly locals and their dogs. Good range of Ales and though the original intention was to try them all, the Moonshine Pale Ale was in such superb condition I stayed with it for the session. The Flying Childers is well known for the quality of its... More

This was our second visit. It was a warm day so we sat outside. Our food was served quickly. The pub has a lovely friendly feel to it and is situated in a quaint little village. Will definitely be visiting again.

We stopped for lunch, on a wet and cold walk, and this little pub made us welcome. A roaring fire, great beer, and delicious cobs with homemade chutney, at very cheap prices.

Stayed next door but one to the pub for the week so managed a few visits! What a lovely welcoming pub the Flying Childers is. Good beer, friendly owners and locals. Great place for dogs and walkers, just a 15 minute stroll from the Nine Ladies Stone Circle. The food is simple home cooked fare which is lovely and very... More

First impressions are great, the barman/owner was extremely accomodating with us and saw to us straight away. There was a lovely warm fire on the go and it was very cosy inside. I adore my old pubs with old fashioned decor, so this is perfect. We ordered a pint and ordered some grub. The menu was my sort of menu,... More

We had originally set off in the mist from outside The Flying Childers and after a long circular walk taking in the old Lead Mining Village of Winster we arrived back at the Flying Childers inn. As we approached the Inn we were welcomed by a dozen or more folk siting outside in the warm November sunshine . We had... More
