Good Pub Guide Recommended

Nooks and crannies, a thoughtful choice of drinks, friendly staff and lovely food; seats and tables in large garden; bedrooms

Whatever your mood, you'll find somewhere interesting to sit in this stylishly refurbished village pub. There are beams and bare-brick, exposed-stone and painted walls covered with prints and photos of horses and big bold paintings of pigs, sheep, cows and chickens. Also, open fires and woodburners, large clocks, fresh flowers and stubby candles on mantelpieces, in big glass jars and on the tables. Flooring ranges from carpet to flagstones, bare floorboards and brick. Furnishings are just as eclectic: long leather button-back and cushioned wall seats, armchairs, all manner of wooden or upholstered dining chairs and tables made from mahogany, pine and even driftwood. A beer named for the pub plus Peak Chatwsorth Gold and Marstons Pedigree on handpump, 50 wines by the glass from a fine list, 40 gins (and 20 tonics) and 30 malt whiskies; background music. An appealing terrace has wooden or rush seats around tables under parasols, braziers for cooler evenings and a view down over the garden to Worthy Island Wood. The individually designed and well equipped bedrooms are in Walnut House just a few paces from the pub; they also have a self-catering cottage to rent.
