Firms use us often offering their clients and employees a welcoming and friendly way to stay when on business in the area. Great for weekday business guests. We have people who have stayed with us for years as their second home. All of the rooms have a private entrance avoiding the need to enter through the Pub.

Friends and family.
We have many locals who book our rooms for friends or family when they come to visit. Wedding guests and people visiting for a special occasion also book our rooms.

DINE WITH US Our team has worked hard to earn our reputation for serving good quality home cooked food at pub prices.
We have designed our menus combining traditional pub favourites as well as something a little different.
We are proud to be a Derbyshire pub particularly one in the beautiful village of Ticknall and we are lucky to have some of the finest produce in the country on our doorstep.

We love our drinks as much as we love our food.
Our range of draught cask ales and lagers is unrivalled in the area with 4 perfectly conditioned real ales on tap with up to 150 different guest ales offered each year. These ales are also available direct from the barrel in our ground floor temperature controlled cellar.
We know our wine is great because it is blind tasted to ensure quality. You can choose not to buy a whole bottle because all our wines are available by the glass ...yes every wine we sell is available by the glass.
