The Green, DALBURY, DE6 5BE
Facing the village green and its iconic red telephone box, this free house champions real ales from county-based Dancing Duck, Mansfield and Mr Grundy's breweries. In the one AA-Rosette restaurant, award-winning head Danny Edwards' seasonal menus might feature pulled pork faggots, buttered greens, creamed potato with Guinness and shallot gravy. Since this is Derbyshire, expect Bakewell tart with crème anglaise to make an appearance. Tastefully decorated guest rooms offer free WiFi. A small store/farm shop even sells ramblers' and cyclists' requirements.
