Food and Drink

We have plenty of  award-winning pubs and restaurants close-by, serving delicious food and drinks, most of which also welcome dogs which firmly makes them favourites of ours. Our personal recommendations are below in order of location closest to our B&B. We will be more than happy to provide further recommendations or information to you during your stay. 

The Robin Hood Inn, Baslow
A lovely country pub, quite literally next door to our B&B that can be reached in less than a 2 minute walk. They serve food all day from breakfast to dinner, till about 7.00pm (6.30 on Sunday). It has an excellent beer garden for sunny evenings, and dogs are always welcome. Booking is currently recommended. 01629 700888

The Devonshire Arms, Baslow
January 2024 re-opened under new ownership - details to follow but we believe open all day every day serving food till 8pm and drinks till late. Still dog friendly throughout.

The Highwayman Beefeater, Eastmoor
Food and drink is available Monday to Saturday until 11pm and Sundays until 10.30pm so this is a great option for late arrivals or for those times when everyone else is closed! Just a few minutes up the main road, take your pick from grills, burgers, fresh fish dishes, and everything in between. Unfortunately dogs not allowed.

Fox and Goose, Pudding Pie Hill
With an intriguing history, amazing panoramic views and romantic setting. The Fox and Goose is a rustic inn with roaring log fire offering real ales, British gastropub fare and Sunday roast. Just a 3 minute drive up the lane. They also operate a free shuttle bus for groups of 6 dining. Open Thursday to Sunday. Worth a phone call to check they aren't closed for a wedding.

The Cavendish Hotel, Baslow
Offering highly acclaimed food, using the freshest possible ingredients, The Cavendish offers a range of dining options from informal service and settings in the newly extended Garden Room (and terrace) to fine dining in the Gallery Restaurant. We personally love the afternoon tea experience they offer for a special occasion.

The Prince of Wales, Baslow
Under new ownership since 2023 the Prince still has a passion for fresh, seasonal food using local ingredients in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. Dogs are welcome in the bar, and they have a small roof terrace. We particularly love their wide ranging gin and tonic menu. Closed Monday and Tuesday.

Charlie's, Baslow
Charlie's offers modern British dishes, with a European twist, using locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients. They offer breakfast, morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner (only Thursday, Friday and Saturday), home-made cakes, daily specials, along with an a la carte and table d'hote menu. Their home-made ravioli's and Sunday lunches are personal favourites of ours and of course, dogs are welcome too.

Fischers, Baslow Hall
For those special occasions, or if you just fancy treating yourself, one of 8 Michelin guide restaurants in Derbyshire. Offers a formally served meal in elegant surroundings of original dishes with Mediterranean influences..

Derwentwater Arms, Calver
This local village pub overlooking the cricket pitch opens every day and serves a selection of fine local ales, carefully selected wines and spirits and delicious locally-sourced food. They have a great range of beers available, as well as an extensive gin collection (you can even do a gin-tasting platter) and they do home made stone baked pizzas which you can takeaway. A great place to watch the sun set over Curbar Hill.

The Bulls Head, Holymoorside

10 minutes away heading towards Chesterfield in the tucked away village of Holymoorside the Bulls Head Pub and Dining offers modern British cuisine using the best fresh, grown, bred and foraged produce from the local area - and one of the best Sunday lunches around!

The Packhorse, Little Longstone
15 minutes from us is one of the finest pubs in the Peak District. Just off the Monsal Trail, the pub is surrounded by some of the most striking scenery the Peaks have to offer. Settle down by the open fire or linger outside on sunny days to enjoy real ales and tasty food, locally sourced by the landlord.

The Blind Bull, Little Hucklow

Also in the Michelin Guide this one's a 20 minute drive but well worth it! Inhabiting the site of Britain's 5th oldest public house with great views, a casual and welcoming place to gather and taste Derbyshire’s delicious local produce. Great vegetarian options as well. Dogs always welcome, but book early!

Slightly further afield we also like The Devonshire Arms at Beeley, The Devonshire Arms at Pilsley, the Grouse at Longshaw (great salad's and views, doesn't open till 6pm and no booking!), the Maynard Arms at Grindleford (great garden, food a bit more modern), the Merchant's Yard, Tideswell (great Sunday lunch), the Peacock at Rowsley (Michelin Guide and great for a very fancy meal), The Royal Oak at Millthorpe (for cheese and pork pie platters), The Tickled Trout at Barlow (well cooked Derbyshire food with an Italian twist), the Peacock at Barlow (traditional pub food with on site brewery and great summer deck) and The Woodyard in Bakewell. Finally, the Thornbridge Brewery Tap in Bakewell is a great space to sample their beers and they also serve excellent home made pizza. Guests have also recommended the Red Lion at the Peak Edge Hotel and The Rutland Arms in Bakewell.

We also have some local take-aways that you are more than welcome to bring back to the B&B and eat in the guests lounge or your room if you fancy relaxing and staying in instead. These include:

We also have some great cafe's not too far away which can be incorporated into days out or walks - Edensor Tea Cottage, Edensor and The Old Smithy, Beeley, or Hassop Station (see above)

Chatsworth Farm Shop have a range of delicious foods for creating a picnic to take with you or eat here, and the café there has fantastic views towards Edensor and the Park. Chatsworth Farm Shop

If you want to order some great local produce to cook and eat in the cottage then look no further than (as previously featured on Countryfile on the BBC) - just like a supermarket delivery service for local produce and they will deliver to the cottage either before you arrive or during your stay. (Use our postcode DE45 1PU and mention Robin Hood Farm Cottage.)

Finally the village is well served by the Baslow Village Shop and Post Office and the Co-Operative
