The Old Hall Hotel
The Old Hall Hotel is nestled in beautiful Derbyshire, in the village of Hope. Head chef Tom Mizon is proud to sserve a varied and imaginative menu, whilst using high quality, local ingredients from around the Peak District. We started with crisp ox cheek and Stilton croquettes, and an innovative wild mushroom and squash crumble. For mains I tucked into seared salmon fillet, while my companion selected pulled pork, tomato and chorizo risotto from the specials board. We’ll certainly be back to sample The Old Hall Hotel’s popular Sunday lunch. Whisky connoisseurs will also be pleased to hear that alongside six seasonal real ales, there are over 150 single malts on offer.
As well as the main dining area, there’s a cosy tea room serving delicious breakfasts and cream teas. The pleasant terrace is perfect for enjoying the sunshine on lazy summer afternoons, but in cooler months you may prefer to settle down by the open fire in the snug. As pups and muddy boots are both very welcome, this is also a perfect spot to break up a dog walk. On Wednesdays there is a popular folk night, and Bank Holidays are enlivened by beer and cider festivals with live music held in a marquee in the grounds. With five en-suite bedrooms, this lovely old pub is also an excellent base from which to explore nearby Castleton and Hathersage. The B&B offer includes luxury en-suite rooms with four-poster beds from only £75 per night.
