    Possibly a bit far for you, but the Old Hall Inn in Chinley is absolutely bang on.

    I forgot the Red Lion in Litton. Cracking place!

    it’s our neighbour’s 70th on Friday, so we’re going to take her out at the weekend for lunch.
    I’m thinking somewhere in the peaks – either a nice pub or a decent cafe but my mind’s blank.

    Any suggestions?

    Some nice pubs on there but you have to question the validity of a list of good pubs for food if it includes the Foxhouse.

    My vote is for the Cross Sythes in Totley (which admitedly is just outside the National Park but does great food.

    Just for the quantity…..luckily the quality is ok as well.

    Ladybower Inn is very very nice
    Scotsmans Pack in Hathersage also very good.

    They would be my choices.

    Scotsman’s is good.

    Where are you coming from? If Sheffield, the Strines is amazing.

    ate in the strines yesterday 🙂 was quite good actually, no complaints, altho the menu was a little basic, not much to whet the appetite. but yes, what we got was good. nice setting too.

    I ate there towards the latter part of this winter (can’t remember an exact date) and thought the food was actually pretty good. When the only bitter they did was Stones, the food was terrible, but my last experience was definitely in the upper part of the “good” bracket, and I had a pint of Black Sheep, so the beer had improved too.

    Gateway to the Peaks is Ashbourne. I will recommend the Bowling Green.

    The food is brilliant and prepared from fresh. Not a microwave in sight.

    Strines really? possibly the worst place I’ve eaten in a long time. No actually the Three merry lads at Lodge Moor was worse, just. It has been a couple of years but it was like a time warp to 1982 and not in a good way.

    I’d second the Barrel at Bretton, it was nice when I last went around Christmas. And Felicinis in Bakewell, been a few times this summer but it’s a bit more upmarket than a cafe.

    Or the Queen Anne at Great Hucklow.

    We’ve taken our neighbour (for her 92nd, 93rd and 94th birthdays no less!) out for afternoon tea at the Cavendish Hotel in Baslow, in their Graden Room. It’s a lovely slice of old fashioned englishness.

    Not a local myself, but I really liked the Monsal Head Hotel when I was there on holiday. Proper beauty spot surrounding it and it did a great, if a bit pricey, Sunday roast.

    So where did you take her in the end?

    I meant to say yesterday, we went to the barrel at Bretton. Fantastic Sunday lunch and she really enjoyed it.

    Thanks for all your help folks.

    For future reference we always enjoy the Monsal Head in the White Peak, whether it be in the dining room or the stable block.

    Cheers,

    Sorry for the thread ressurection.

    But in the interests of fairness, just had to say that we stayed at the Yorkshire Bridge again this weekend and the food, room, beer and service were all excellent this time.
    Very pleasant stay indeed.
