Laying claim to be the highest pub in Derbyshire, the Barrel Inn dates back to 1597 and provides guests with a warm and homely base from which to explore the area. An oak-beamed ceiling and a flagstone floor are features in the bar area, while the restaurant offers a wide selection of meals. On a clear day it is possible to see five counties.
