In the ancient village of Hognaston, The Red Lion Inn has stood the test of time. Every aspect, from the bar and dining room to the comfortable en-suite rooms, is saturated with history and character. Its quintessentially English charms even appealed to J. F. Kennedy, who stayed here with his wife in 1997.

Shift your attention to its location, on the edge of the Peak District National Park, and you'll be blown away by the beautiful countryside and views overlooking Carsington Water - but even that is not the best of it. The Red Lion has graced the pages of many a newspaper, including The Telegraph and The Observer, all of whom rave about the superb quality of the food. Home-cooked and lovingly prepared, food at The Red Lion involves only the very best produce, making for heart-warming fare.

What to have? Fillet of beef stroganoff or sea bass with tarragon and Pernod sauce; the Derbyshire steak and ale pie; an indulgent and summery ploughman's? We began with the wild mushrooms on toast with melted blue Stilton - deliciously creamy - as well as the classic prawn cocktail and, after much pondering, the Derbyshire steak and ale pie, which warmed us to the bones.

After a hearty indulgence, perhaps walk it off amidst the local, beautiful Peak countryside, or simply sit in the garden and admire the view.
