The Royal Oak

WETTON, Ashbourne, DE6 2AF

This long-established watering-hole in a pretty White Peak village continues to offer the most hospitable, time-honoured welcome to all; the landlord also says that muddy boots (a rack is provided) and friendly dogs are ok by him. To set the scene - flagged floors, beams and open fire within, and tables outside that promise views to tree-studded limestone pastures. Tracks and byways wend down into the amazing gorge of the River Manifold, riddled by caves amidst memorable ash woods. No surprise then that the pub is popular with ramblers happy to sample beers from local producers like Whim. Filling pub stalwarts populate the menu here; Staffordshire chicken, and rustic beef and Guinness casserole are cases in point.
