You are right in the heart of the Peak District here, not far from the Blue John Cavern
in a one of the pubs that takes dogs and provides lots of fuss and fresh water for our four-legged walking companions. Not much has changed since the days of yore when it was an overnight pit stop on the Salt Route from Cheshire across the Pennines to Yorkshire. Cheese was the currency at this dog-friendly pub and the original cheese hooks remain in the lower bar. Ale lovers will be hooked with its range of locally brewed ales like Bakewell Best Bitter from Peak Ales and Abbeydale Brewery’s Moonshine.
