Old Hall Inn

Whitehough, CHINLEY, SK23 6EJ

Prime Peak District walking country surrounds this family-run, 16th-century pub attached to Whitehough Hall. Within easy reach are the iconic landscape features of Kinder Scout, Mam Tor and Stanage Edge, popular with climbers and fell-walkers who head here for refreshment following their exertions. And no wonder. The drinks list is as long as your arm, with local breweries to the fore; beers from Abbeydale, Kelham Island, Phoenix, Storm and many more all have their enthusiasts, which makes for a lively atmosphere in the bar. Sheppy's from Somerset is among the real ciders and perries (note: a beer and cider festival is held on the third weekend in September). All manner of bottled beers, particularly Belgian wheat, fruit and Trappist varieties, a remarkable choice of malts and gins and around 80 wines round off the excellent drinks range. Food service is busy too: the pub opens into the Minstrels' Gallery restaurant in the old manor house, where a short seasonal menu and daily specials offer freshly made 'small plates' of white onion and tarragon risotto; celeriac and apple soup with celery salt croûtons; and traditional prawn cocktail. Move on to Thai-style breaded haddock goujons with home-made chilli jam, dressed salad and noodles; or confit duck leg, Parmentier potatoes and curly kale with port and shallot sauce. Then there are pub classics, such as steak and ale pudding with home-made chips, garden peas and a pot of gravy; Lancashire hotpot with braised red cabbage and crusty bread; and cheese, leek and apple pie with mash and peas. Half a dozen desserts, among them apple and cinnamon walnut crumble, round off the wide-ranging menu.
