A great Sunday lunch and a log fire in the Peaks - wash it all down with a pint of Robinson’s Dizzy Blond, walk it all off with your dog

Greg and Libby Robinson have saved this handsome old village pub from a sorry end, lavishing love (and not a small amount of hard graft) into the very fabric of it. There are a handful of contemporary touches (splashy wallpaper, banquettes) but the beams, wood floors and open fire make it feel like a comfy nook to relax with a pint. The menu's pretty modern too; expect the likes of smoked chicken, chorizo and red pepper tian and gilt head bream with parsnip couscous alongside robust pub grub classics. Robinson's Dizzy Blonde is nicely kept; you can enjoy a pint in the cosy tap room with your canine chum, and a plate of bangers and mash. What's more, Sunday lunch is legendary! Just as well you're deep in the Derbyshire Dales, with super walks from the door.

"So lovely to walk into a village pub on a snowy winter's day to be greeted by a blazing fire, glowing wooden floors and a friendly barmaid! Greg has won the Derbyshire Life Dining pub of the year in 2016, he's getting it right!"
