Good Food, Real Ales, and Log Fires!
Located in the conservation village of Beeley, this pub is now a popular 'find' I'd recommend booking, as it can get busy at weekends, with walkers, locals and visitors.
Converted from 3 cottages in 1747, famous visitors have included Charles Dickens and King Edward V11 (It no longer offers accomodation)
Entering through the main door, you enter into the bar area, with a wide selection of Real Ales- hand pulled, wines and spirits. Take a seat in one of the low beamed lounges, preferably by one of the log fires if it's a cold day or evening. Enjoy relaxing over your drink, while you drool over the extensive menu! Locally sourced ingredients, a wide variety of starters, main courses and if you have room there's a good dessert trolley!
Specials board too!
Seating limited outside, but there's a low stone wall to enjoy a summers drink.
At Christmas, the beamed ceilings are decorated with leaves, intertwined with tiny white lights. This is the place that we gather as a family just before Christmas - Dad usually pays!
No music, or slot machines.
Parking outside, or in car park opposite.
Toilets up a small flight of stone steps
UPDATE- Just found out this place is under new management and has undergone a refurb- modern and airy-new menus -still good food, but not the traditional pub/eatery. The once legendary Victorian Breakfast and Friday Fish nights are no more :-(
I'll have to visit and re-write this page. I've been here about half a dozen times now, and each time the food has been excellent.
I usually have something like Sausage and Mash, or a fish baked dish. All come piping hot, and with a selection of vegetables. I don't usually have room for pudding, but sometimes share one. The coffee is usually served as an individual filter type.
I haven't visited since the refurbishment, but hope to do so soon!
