The Fox & Goose
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
This picturesque stone pub and restaurant on the edge of the Peak District National Park has not only received much recent acclaim but is also one of the oldest hostelries in Derbyshire, with documented use as an inn dating back to 1590.
The name derives from a Viking board game played here by monks in the 14th century, and guests can still play the game today in the cosy pub snug. The Orangery and terrace offer stunning panoramic views over the rolling countryside – a superb backdrop to an equally spectacular meal that might include the likes of razor clam tartare with pickled radish and samphire, Derbyshire lamb rump with celeriac purée, and blueberry clafoutis with hazelnut tuile and kirsch ice cream, accompanied by fine wine and friendly, helpful service.
