The Eyre Arms
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The Eyre Arms at Calver was fully refurbished in March 2015, giving the beautiful stone-built pub a new lease of life. It has become a family-friendly dining destination that oozes character – think exposed bricks, an open fireplace and original beams – housed in a bright, airy space, complete with plenty of outdoor seating.
The pub has developed a reputation for good food since it reopened, thanks to a menu created by the executive chef. The kitchen serves an array of homemade fare complemented by seasonal specials, while Sundays stick to tradition with a selection of locally reared roasts. Children’s roast dinners are free when ordered alongside a paying adult’s. Friday night is steak night; diners can enjoy locally sourced steak with all the trimmings and a bottle of wine for £30. The pub serves breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 8.30am till midday, offering a menu of cooked and Continental options. The extensive beer garden has a free bouncy castle for children (weather permitting) and the large function room has become a popular space for parties, occasions and affordable Peak District weddings. Drinks aren’t forgotten either. The Eyre Arms has already been awarded Cask Marque accreditation for its selection of cask ale, and the wine list showcases varieties from around the world.
The pub is part of a small family of establishments that includes The Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop, making it a great place to try Derbyshire’s famous Bakewell pudding.
