We visited the peak district with our dog so had to find dog friendly places to eat out. Really glad that we found the Barley Mow as we received a warm welcome as soon as we stepped in. The barman was really friendly, helpful and very passionate as he described the food and drink options. The PUB food was excellent, we had monster burgers and fish cakes and we all cleared our plates with satisfaction. The selection of ales was good and we particularly liked the Hairy Helmet ale.
It is a traditional English pub which has a impressive ceiling decorated with a collection of beer mats. Would happily visit again if we are back in the area. Many thanks to all the staff and locals for making a lovely evening.

Out of the way but worth it! Lovely staff, amazing pub grub and a great atmosphere. A local pub that's worth a visit.

Collette the landlady was very friendly and welcoming and ensured we had seating to accommodate the 4 adults and our dog. The pub is quaint and it was clear the locals visit regularly and they too were welcoming travellers and their pets.
The food was great and well priced and the atmosphere was amazing.

Having brought our puppy away with us (Jasper) we tentatively popped our heads-around to ask permission to bring him in. Collette (landlady) was very welcoming and made a lovely fuss of the pooch. it is a small pub but enough covers to serve food or stand up at the bar area. We ordered our drinks and sat at a table ready to decide what meals to have. Loved the catches on the seats to loop the dogs lead into

Collette was very helpful and even made our veggie daughter a lovely risotto. I had the lasenger which I can highly recommend, hubby opted for a veg curry which he loved and the teenager lad had a mega burger & it was massive! Although we had to wait, it was certainly worth it... Good honest home cook food, drinks aplenty and lovely staff (Josh the barman). If going to Matlock (we stayed in Rose Cottage) this pub is a must to visit. Good quality food, beer & hospitality!
