This place is a little gem. We visited with friends during a recent trip to Derbyshire as it had been recommended to us by several people. It's a traditional, cosy and fairly 'no frills' pub serving unpretentious food, cooked really well. There was a good selection of ales, the menu was not extensive (possibly owing to being a Sunday), and was fairly traditional. I'd always rather have a smaller menu where the food is dependably good, than a larger, more hit and miss selection, anyway. Our friends had roasts and we had burgers- I ordered the traditional beef, and my husband had the pork and apple burger. Both were really generous, served on a plate the size of a roof-slate and absolutely delicious. All the ingredients were fresh and the chips were very well done. Just the thing after a day exploring the Peak District! It was busy, but service was friendly and prompt, and prices were very reasonable too, for the portion size. Would definitely return, and can heartily recommend the Red Lion if you're staying nearby.
