There’s an easy-going vibe at The Cobbles, which is why scores of new and returning customers make a point of taking time out of their day to come by and enjoy home-cooked fare in comfortable, welcoming surroundings. The interior of The Cobbles is a bright and airy affair, with smart furnishings and a plush sofa that’s perfect for retreating to with a hot drink and a book when the weather isn’t playing ball. Outside, there’s a spacious beer garden with a securely enclosed children’s play area, in addition to stunning views over the surrounding Peak District countryside. Visitors will struggle to ﬁnd a better spot in which to enjoy a hearty lunch on a summer’s day; it’s deﬁnitely the sort of place you bring the whole clan along to.
The team behind The Cobbles champions fresh, home-cooked food above all else. They make use of as much local produce as possible, which ensures their menu stays enticing and reasonably priced. Keep appetites at bay when you arrive with bread and dipping oils, or mozzarella sticks with barbecue sauce and garnish. Alternatively, plump for one of the sharers: a nacho platter loaded with mozzarella, Cheddar cheese and sour cream, topped with your choice of chilli con carne or pulled pork.
The main menu at The Cobbles is a veritable what’s-what of hearty lunchtime fare and is perfect for refueling during the day. Grab a posh ﬁsh ﬁnger sandwich served on ciabatta with homemade chips and mushy peas, or go for the Totally Stuffed homemade pie of the day with chips, peas and gravy. There’s also a burger menu with beef, chicken and vegetarian options, as well as reasonably priced children’s and a whole new menu will be launching in October 2017. Food is served until 6pm throughout the week, and until 4pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Evening dining can be arranged by reservation.
There’s a host of premium soft drinks, teas and coffees available, but if you’re looking for something with a little kick, you could instead order an expertly mixed cocktail. For those planning a family get-together or event, the venue can be hired free of charge. If you already have the venue for your shindig organised, but want to treat your guests to The Cobbles’ lovely homemade food and drink, the team also offers outside catering packages to suit all needs – you can even call in their mobile bar.
