About the Pub

Superbly-run characterful old village pub. A short corridor with attractive small rooms off leads to the welcoming bar, which serves excellent beer and provides a central hub, popular with those who like to stand and chat. Off this is a large function room, used for a wide range of activities and events and available for private functions. The bar also gives access to a modern lounge/dining area and the immaculately kept toilet facilities. Outside there is a large gazebo, garden and children's play areas, which are understandably popular in the summer months. The lunchtime and early evening meals and snacks are deservedly popular with locals, walkers and refugees from local businesses seeking an hour or so in a calm oasis away from the workplace. The pub has been cherished and protected by the same family for over 60 years. Although there is a bus stop very close by, there is (currently) no evening service. An alternative is to walk back down to Borrowash (about 20 to 25 minutes) and in the summer there is a pleasant walk across the fields to Spondon.
