The Red Lion Inn

Built in 1680, The Red Lion Inn served as a farm and alehouse, gaining it first licence in 1722, when licensing became the law.

Today it retains much of its original character, including a 30ft deep well in the bar, which as originally the water source for the brewhouse.

The ancient oak beams and bare stone walls provide a comfortable and homely atmosphere in which to enjoy traditional ales and freshly cooked food.

Matteo and Alyson purchased The Red Lion in 2006 and aim to provide good quality pub food. Fresh ingredients, locally sourced where possible, are carefully cooked by Matteo himself and transformed into tastly, wholesome meals.

At the Red Lion you also have the opportunity to savour the delights of Sardinian Cuisine as Matteo brings a little of his home island to the Peak District. (Booking advisable).
