“If you like traditional English pubs with good food, then this is a must!!!”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

The Eyre Arms stands near the gates of Hassop Hall which was once owned by the Eyre family for hundreds of years. It's not a very big pub, so if you want a meal then it's advisable to book. There is plenty to chose from on the menu, as well as traditional English food, they serve some of the traditional dishes with cosmopolitan twists. The food is delicious, well presented and plenty of it without ending up bloated. The Thai fish cakes that I started with were very tasty, not too spicy so that you could taste the crab; the venison was done to perfection - tender and oozing with red juice; and the Eton Mess was yummy!

The service is friendly and is a family run business.

The pub is cosy with a roaring fire, and has it's own resident Cavalier ghost from the English Civil War!

To get to it (as buses are infrequent), you need a car or hiking boots. But what could be better than a drive or hike in the Derbyshire Peak District followed by a great meal!

“Quality again & again”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

This is possibly the best pub in the area, I've visited time & time again. No matter what time of the week you visit this pub the welcome is warm & the food excellent. This pub has it all warm fires in the winter stunning beer garden complete with fountain in the summer. Quality real ales are always on offer beautifully kept & served cellar cold. The food is always home made & you can tell, none of that pre packed stuff here! This pub is packed full of old world charm that just can't be replicated, go & have a look for yourself. This is not the only Eyre Arms in the area so don't get confused with its inferior name sake at Calver cross road. If it doesn't seem right your at the wrong place.

“PERFECT PLACE!”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

We have been to the Erye Arms twice now and I cannot rate this place highly enough! The service is fantastic and the food matches its surroundings, we were in a large group but nothing was too much trouble and even though there was a lot of us not one person complained about the food! just positive reviews! Keep up the good work and see you all soon!
