Our bar is open from 8 am every day, where we invite you to a hearty breakfast, lunch, after work drinks, evening meals or that much needed night-cap. We are huge dog fans and invite all of our guests’ four-legged friends in with a bowl of water, a treat and love and attention from our staff. Enjoy leisurely mornings with a warming cup of coffee by our log burner, or a summer’s evening in our beautiful garden, taking in the picturesque views of the Hope Valley.

We have 4 cask ales from Thornbridge, Abbeydale and Peak Ales Breweries and wines from award-winning merchant, John Hattersley.
