About the Pub

Reputed to be the oldest hotel in England and built as the 'New Hall' in 1573 by Bess of Hardwick, on the site of an earlier inn. It provided accommodation for Mary Queen of Scots who was under house arrest. The hotel was much rebuilt in 1670, but parts of the 1573 building survive. The Old Hall Hotel is located beside the Crescent and alongside the Opera House and consists of a large traditional hotel with three public bars. At the front is the small 'Theatre Bar', open lunch and evgs; in the centre is the 'Cockerel Wine Bar' where food is served from midday until 10pm; and at the back is the 'George Potter Bar' for evening drinks. All hotel facilities available. The Hotel bars are on the Buxton Real Ale Trail and are open to non-residents. The House beer "Queen of Scots" is a 4.2% ABV IPA brewed by Sharp's.
