Cheerful owners keep interesting real ales (some own brew) and ciders in characterful village; hearty food; bedrooms

The enthusiastic and hard-working licensees here are the reason this unpretentious local does so well. And, of course, their own brews are quite a draw: Ashover Coffin Lane Stout, Light Rale, Littlemoor Citra, Poets Tipple, Red Lion and Zoo. Guests from breweries include Abbeydale, Blackjack, Blue Monkey, Gadds, Harviestoun, Kelham Island, Oakham, Roosters, Salopian, Sarah Hughes and Titanic, and they hold beer festivals in March and October. Also, a terrific choice of 12 farm ciders, a dozen fruit wines, 20 malt whiskies and belgian beers. The informal bar has an easy-going atmosphere and a mix of chairs and pews, while a small room opening off the bar has a stack of newspapers and vintage comics; background music. French doors lead to a tiny balcony with a couple of tables. They hold regular acoustic, folk and blues sessions (posters advertise forthcoming events) as well as quiz nights, poetry evenings and morris dancers. The bedrooms are attractive and there's a holiday cottage sleeping up to eight.
