We visited this pub on an evenings drive out from Sheffield. Phil had recently visited here, when he was camping at Blackwell, which is a short walk away.
A typical village pub, opposite the village church. Our visit was on a Saturday evening, after enjoying a picnic nearby.
The pub was packed to the rafters with diners (we made a note to return here to try their food)
We selected a half pint of ale, and retired to a seat outside, as there was nowhere to sit inside.

Chelmorton is a unique village - its ancient field system dates to before the Reformation Laws, so you can see the dry stone walls, enclosing each plot of land.
It is also the highest village in Derbyshire and possibly the highest parish in the whole of England, with the Parish Church of St.John the Baptist standing at 1,209 ft above sea-level.

I recently had the chance to enjoy the experience of a 3 course Sunday Lunch eaten on a steam train -OK -it wasn't The Orient Express, but it was a fraction of the price!
The Peak Railway has been running a passenger service since 1997, between Rowsley and Matlock. On Sundays there is the chance to sit down and enjoy a 3 course meal as the train travels up and down the track between these stations.

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.
Favorite Dish: 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!

This attractive 17th Century Inn is formed from 3 stone cottages. It faces the Village Green, and from the seats outside You can see the stocks and ancient cross.
Inside, small rooms under low beamed ceilings, offer a cosy place to enjoy a wide selection of drinks, especially its Real Ales, and a good menu.
Log fires add to the ambience!
I visited on a Thursday lunchtime in June as part of a large group - A 'Time - Out' from work!
We'd pre-booked sandwiches and chips, to enjoy after our walk. Due to the recent floods, our planned walk was shortened, and we arrived an hour earlier than planned. The staff were brilliant, and they set to accomodating us - we enjoyed a drink, while perusing the menu, displayed on blackboards - Lots of mouth watering choices for meat eaters and vegetarians.
Soon a table was spread with an array of sandwiches and home made chips - some of the best I've ever eaten - oven cooked with the potato skins still on. Some of our party also managed a pudding. I settled for a cup of tea.
This was all generously paid for by our Professor, so not sure of how much this would cost normally.
This pub/restaurant welcomes dogs - 2 of our party had their (well behaved) pooches with them.
I'd love to come back here again for a meal.
Favorite Dish: Sandwiches and home made oven chips Mmmmmmmm! Just what You need after a walk - washed down with a pint of shandy - (I had to drive later), otherwise I'd have tried a pint from their selection of Real Ales

The Nettle Inn was formerly known as the Greyhound which was changed by a previous Landlord when his dog won a race and he renamed it after his dog.
We had already had lunch when we decided to pop in for a drink which would have been a shame as the menu looked delicious had we not already had a wonderfful meal down the road in Ashover. at "The Crispin"
The food was not cheap average 8 - 15 pounds for a main course but there was a lot of choice. Do I need to say it was quaint. Just look at the photo. I've read good reviews both about the food and the ale so give it a try.

The Crispin is a delightful pub set in Ashover a village very near to Matlock in Derbyshire.
It has old world charm of which I am very fond and today on a very hot sunny Sunday the dining room was lovely and cool due to the stone walls and floors. Part of the dining room has quite a medieval feel to it hosting a large table with very grand high back chairs. The prices were reasonable for the quality of the food but not cheap bar meal prices.
Food ranged from a selection of steaks, Sunday roasts from £8 to more adventurous choices like Wild Boar at around £12 I think the most expensive meal on the menu was around £15-17.
My first reaction was this would be a very nice place to have a meal with friends or family if you were celebrating a special occasion
Favorite Dish: We all had the Sunday Lunch. Three of us had the Lamb which was delicious and my friend had the Roast Chicken which she said was just as good.
There is also a good dessert menu with a selection of cold or lovely sticky puddings.

The Kings head is set in the pretty village of Bonsal.
The menu is extensive, and what I liked about it was that everything was available on a Sunday so you are not limited to a roast dinner.
Quality of the food is excellent and reasonably priced. £5 - £8 for a main course.
Puddings were also “yummy” and about £3

There are quite a few pubs and cafes along the main street in Matlock Bath. the Princess Victoria is about half way along the road. It's small but the food and the beer were excellent.
Favorite Dish: I had a tuna melt on a baguette that inspired me to go on a tuna melt kick for months!
