Pint of beer on a bar

Red Lion Inn

Pub paradise beside the village green

At a glance

Bar menu
Beer festival
Open all year

This is a tiny pub in a terrace of stone-built cottages which has served locals and visitors to this pretty White Peak village for two centuries. The warren of hobbit-sized rooms ooze character, shadows cast by log-fires flit across the low beams, murmuring village chit-chat and happy ramblers returning from nearby limestone gorges add to the timeless atmosphere. Beers from local microbreweries such as Peak Ale and Abbeydale major on the bar, whilst diners can happily chomp away on homity pie, or braised blade of beef with cheddar cheese and bacon mash. Space constraints mean that children under six cannot be accommodated inside the pub.
