Winning the title of Visit Peak District’s Derbyshire Traditional Pub of the Year multiple times is recognition entirely deserved by this fabulous pub, sitting just off the Tissington Trail. An extensive menu features hearty favourites cooked to perfection, and the ingredients used are sourced only from trusted local suppliers.

All dishes at The Royal Oak are homemade and freshly cooked to order (even down to the wonderful hand-cut, twice-cooked chips). Specials boards change daily, allowing the chefs to show off locally supplied produce and seasonal dishes. Pies and burgers are so popular that there are now dedicated specials boards for each. We tucked into the home-cured beef and crisp beer-battered crabcakes to start. I was undecided as to which main to try – a fellow diner strongly suggested the beef and Stilton pie, and others nodded approvingly. With such a unanimous recommendation, we had to try it. Sitting in the most humongous dish, with a golden brown crust overflowing the rim, it certainly didn’t disappoint – it was as delicious as it was big. A heavenly sticky toffee pudding and white chocolate cheesecake provided the perfect end to our meal. With vegetarian and gluten-free options, a great selection of four or five local ales, excellent accommodation options (including a bunk barn, campsite and luxury holiday cottages), superb service and a full breakfast menu served daily, it seems The Royal Oak has everything. This is an outstanding, must-visit pub – booking is highly recommended.
