Was looking for somewhere to have a lovely Sunday lunch and called in here. Nick is a friendly landlord and serves the best beef cobs with home made gravy and potatoes. We will be coming to this friendly pub with our dog next time we come! I especially liked the Union Jack bunting and cushions. Thanks Andy and Nick for... More

Lovely friendly pub, allows dogs which is a plus, dogs sometimes get a biscuit too, which they love. lots of places to sit, it does get a bit crowded sometimes, but a nice place to have a chat and a drink. We have not eaten here, for no other reason than we only go for an afternoon drink, the sport... More

We are stopping at a nearby Caravan site, so the Fishermans Rest is in walking distance. Beer is excellent, the Cider was delish. Had a ham cob each which was amazing. The friendliness of the landlord, staff and locals make visiting this pub a delight. Well worth a visit.

I always cycle past this place on my way into the Peak District and it always looked great. The decoration is really nice and welcoming, the owner friendly and talkative and there were plenty of drinks available. A really good selection of beer and wines. Apparently food is only served on Sundays, which is good as this is when we... More

Food is only served on a Sunday which consists of hot Pork or Beef cobs with roast potatoes and gravy which looked delicious. The pub is... More

Having stayed on a Caravan site nearby, we wanted some food. We went to the pub, but weren't doing food, however they have a load of takeaway menus behind the bar, which they order the food for you to eat in the pub, all you pay for is the cost of the food ordered. They even supplied plates and condiments!... More

We visited here Sunday lunchtime. They only do hot roast rolls with roast potatoes and gravy but when I say only it was excellent. The beef was cooked to perfection and the gravy was meaty. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. Plenty of parking and a lovely outside space with great views.

Description
A traditional Derbyshire Country Pub. Perfectly kept Real Ales (4) and a range of Lagers, Ciders and top quality Wines.
We serve Butchers Snacks and made-to-order filled Cobs; on Sunday we offer Hot Roast Beef Cobs with Roasties and 'real' Gravy. Very much an Ale & Wine House serving 'snacks for drinkers' rather than offering a Restaurant offering.
We cater for Funeral Wakes, Christenings and Family Parties.
The Pub is very 'dog friendly' and boasts a large garden and sun terrace - the sun shines on the property all day and sets on the front of the Pub and the Terrace.
Classic pub games on offer - Darts, Dominoes, Table Skittles, Cribbage.
