The Dog Inn

Main Road, Pentrich, Ripley, DE5 3RE
In many ways The Dog is a traditional Derbyshire pub, with a roaring open fire and real ales on tap. But on closer inspection you'll discover what makes this place distinctive. The guest ales are sourced from microbreweries where possible and change every few days, the restaurant has a particular polish and the service comes with an expert edge.

Every visit offers something special here - Monday to Saturday there is a two-courses prix-fixe menu for £12.99, as well as an individually priced menu and specials boards. Wednesdays feature a fresh fish menu; Thursdays the specials take Italian inspiration, and Sunday afternoon is all about the traditional Derbyshire roast. Locally reared steaks are available every day, as is the bar menu.

All the food is sourced in Derbyshire, including free-range meat and eggs. The smoked salmon starter had an intense flavour that mesmerised my partner, while my sardine fillets were crispy and light. The Italian-inspired chicken main combined tender white meat with tangy pesto and intense Parma ham to exquisite effect, and dessert was equally delicious - a white chocolate and strawberry cheesecake, which was thick and creamy with vivid accents of fruit. The Dog Inn is rightfully one of Derbyshire's worst-kept secrets - so it's best to book a table before sampling it yourself
