Fine food and real ales in the Hope Valley

Free Wi-Fi

In the heart of the Peak District National Park and handy for the Pennine Way, this village inn is named after the local man credited with inventing the steel-ribbed umbrella – hence the pub sign showing a fox sheltering beneath one. Owner and experienced chef, James Duckett ensures that there’s a warm welcome and pleasant atmosphere for villagers and visitors alike. Contemporary notes creep into the food, which is firmly based on fresh local produce. Expect the likes of Port of Lancaster smoked trout fillet with coleslaw and curry spices; roast pheasant breast, autumn vegetables and pearl barley; and chickpea fritters with beetroot pesto.
