Bars and pubs, Pubs
4 out of 5 stars

Just the ticket for a post-ramble pint, this Peak District pub is famous for its ales and massive, meaty pies

This incredibly welcoming pub is a walker’s paradise. Situated on the edge of the Peak District, they actively encourage ramblers and casual walkers to stop in for a pint and a bite to eat. So bring the family – hell, bring the dog too; they provide free bowls of Pedigree Chum for a small donation to The Dogs Trust/Guide Dogs for the Blind.

The pub regularly appears in the Good Beer Guide and is a CAMRA favourite for its fine and regularly changing ales across eight casks. They take their beer very seriously and host a biannual beer festival to make sure they’re getting the best from around the area.

The landlord is from Wigan, so of course they have pies, home-made well renowned ones that can satisfy any hunger after a trek across the nearby trails. Veggies will have to make do with cheese and onion, while meat-eaters are spoiled with steak and stilton, game pie and Lancashire rabbit.
