Dating back to 1788, the Red Lion is located on the edge of the beautiful Peak District National Park. It has seen many changes over the years but retains much character – the original wooden beams and stone walls are complemented by discreet lighting and comfy leather armchairs which add a contemporary edge. Striking black-and-white photographs decorate the walls, whilst local bands liven up the bar on Thursday evenings. Meals are served in the bar and bistro, or beneath umbrellas in the large garden. Seasonal produce drives the menu and the chefs make everything, from sauces to the chips. Typical choices might start with scallops, butternut squash purée, peanut brittle and pink grapefruit; or carrot soup, clotted cream pannacotta, carrot crisps and baby coriander, followed by beef skirt, oxtail croquettes, bone marrow, mirepoix and roast onion purée; or halibut, seaweed butter, kimchi and crab dumplings.
