Pubs in the Peak District

Peak District Pubs and Gastro Pubs

The range of pubs in the Peak District is astonishing. There are pubs full of character to modern soul-less family pubs. Pubs for drinkers with little in the way of food available and some that don’t really make you feel welcome unless you are intending to eat. It doesn’t matter whether you like real ale, lager, fizzy cold keg beer or cocktails, pub grub or fine dining, you should be able to find a pub to suit your taste.

Please note that we try hard to keep the list up to date but given the rate of pub closures, some of these establishments may now be closed. Having lived on the southern fringes of the Peak District since 1980, we have been to quite a few … some still going, others sadly now closed.

There is currently just one review of Peak District pubs on this site. Please contact us for details of how you can add a free review or even advertise your establishment with photo, available beers and menu. Put your pub or bar into the limelight!

The Druid Inn, Main Street, Birchover, Matlock, DE4 2BL – if you are looking for cheap bog-standard pub grub you need to look elsewhere, the Druid is a Quality Gastro-pub, no two ways about it. We have always enjoyed the food here.

But just for a pint after a bouldering session at Cratcliffe or routes at Rowtor Rocks we tend to go to the Red Lion just up the road toward Stanton Moor. They have a walkers area where you don’t have to take your boots off! Decent food and always a well kept selection of Real Ale …

Hawk & Buckle Inn, 46 Main St, Etwall, Derby, DE65 6LP Tel: 01283 733471

Buckingham Hotel, 1-2 Burlington Road, Buxton SK17 9AS – hotel bar with cask ales and restaurant of some renown locally

George Hotel, Main Road, Hope Valley, Hathersage S32 1BB – posh restaurant and accommodation, we have never actually ventured in to use it as just a pub.

The Chequers Inn, Froggatt Edge, Froggatt S32 3ZJ – a good spot to stop for a pint after a day’s climbing at Froggatt Edge. Restaurant serving traditional British cuisine, local produce. The bar offers hand-pulled cask ales

George Hotel, Main St, Youlgrave, Bakewell, DE45 1UW Tel: 01629 636292

Sir William Hotel, Sir William Hill Road, Grindleford Bridge S32 2HS – convenient spot for a pint on the way back south from a day out at Stanage or good base for climbing and walking. Great views … if you can actually get one of the window seats!!

The Jug & Glass Inn, Ashbourne Rd, Hartington SK17 0BA – not been for ages and ages but It was a decent if fairly snug bar. We reckon it would be a good central place to stay to explore the area round Hartington and Dovedale.
