The George


Up above Dovedale, this attractive, stone-built pub offers a bar with a fire, historic artefacts, portraits of locals and a wide choice of real ales, including Banks's Sunbeam and Jennings Cumberland. There's an original simplicity about the dining room and snug, with their lime-plastered walls, farmhouse furniture, candlelight and fresh flowers. A warm welcome from Emily Brighton, whose family has run The George for three generations, may also contain a polite request to leave any muddy boots at the door - this is a popular walking area. The kitchen's passion for locally sourced food is evident from the organic garden, source of abundant vegetables, salad leaves and herbs. A winter lunch menu might offer potted native brown shrimps; and Derbyshire-reared flat-iron steak, while dinner might start with wood-pigeon breast with hazelnut and plum salad, followed by pan-fried market catch of the day with chorizo, white bean and winter greens cassoulet.
