We stayed locally for a business venture and found this establishment to be very nice for our evening meals. Food quality was excellent as was the portions and the staff were great. Would use this pub without hesitation if in the area again.

Description
The Grouse and Claret in Rowsley is a beautiful 18th Century building at the gateway to the Peak District National Park, with hotel accommodation in the shape of eight en-suite rooms. It is situated on the A6 between Matlock and Bakewell, within easy reach of Chesterfield, Sheffield, Derby and Manchester, and is therefore ideally located for tourists exploring the region as well as business travellers. The heart and soul of the hotel remains the pub itself and you can be sure to find something to tempt you from our extensive food menu which is available all day. Our selection of hot meals includes pub classics as well as a constantly changing selection of specials. We have a range of specially selected wines along with cask ales and a choice of soft drinks, tea and coffee. Room prices include our fantastic breakfast and the Grouse and Claret Hotel also provides plenty of free parking space for hotel and dining guests.
