I first visited this excellent pub whilst at Uni in Sheffield back along and so to discover that local musicians still turn up randomly with their fiddles & banjos to enjoy the 'craic' is a sign of enduring excellence. The menu is unpretentious and plentiful and the locally sourced meats are tasty & great value. And the beer is stunningly... More

Lovely little pub with a fantastic view. We had the traditional English fish, chips and mushy peas and they didn't disappoint. Make sure your hungry though because they are huge. Amazingly busy for a Tuesday lunch time and filled with locals which is always a good sign.

The setting is stunning so it's worth going for a pint just to enjoy the views. But the food is excellent- a much higher standard than the low key traditional country pub image would suggest. I had venison, my husband had lamb. Both delicious. Followed it up with bakewell pudding and custard- ultimate comfort food. Good value too - £60... More

I didn't stay here, me and my boyfriend were staying in a cottage over the road and we popped in one night for a drink, then came back for a meal a couple of nights later. The food was lovely and the service was quick and friendly. We booked our table the night before and sat by the fireplace with... More

We've been coming to this pub from time to time for years. It's 50 miles from home, but its location and ambience are stunning. In the past the staff have been off hand. This seems to have changed. The maitre d' went out of her way to be helpful and friendly and the other staff followed suit. And the food... More

We had eaten at this pub before on several occasions and had enjoyed the food and thought the location was terrific. So when we needed an overnight stay in Derbyshire, we thought the Barrel would fit the bill. How wrong we were! The pub has the most spectacular views and we thought our room might share these. Instead we were... More

I always go to The Barrel when visiting the area, splendid views on a clear day (apparently it's the highest pub in Derbyshire), and inside there's a fire burning and a wonderfully quaint old atmosphere. The beers kept there are never less than excellent and the food is outstanding. Very friendly and professional service too. Would never miss it -... More

Visited with family at the beginning of the month on a Sunday, when I rang up to book I was told it would be busy so given a slightly earlier time. This suited us fine. The pub itself is beautiful and exactly what you picture when you think of an old countryside inn. However we arrived and were greeted by... More
