AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu

You'll enjoy visiting this 16th-century pub on a wooded hillside below the gritstone escarpment of Froggatt Edge. Timber floors, antiques and blazing log fires help to make a pint of Chatsworth Gold, brewed on the Duke of Devonshire's nearby estate, irresistible. The kitchen's loyalty to all things locally produced or supplied is reflected in dishes such as hand dived scallop tartar, Cromer crab, fennel pollen, roe powder, squid ink tuille and dill oil; over roasted breast of guinea fowl, black truffle potato cake, charred leeks, thyme roasted heritage carrots, burnt onion crumb and madeira jus; and wild mushroom pithivier herb dauphinoise, charred chicory, beetroot purée, tarragon oil. In addition to a range of classics and lunchtime sandwiches, frequently changing blackboard specials include vegetarian options. A steep woodland footpath from the pub’s elevated 'secret' garden leads up to Froggatt Edge itself.
