Review on The Plough Inn
Set in glorious grounds by the banks of the River Derwent, this converted sixteenth-century corn mill and lead smelting house is the kind of pub that sets Peak District tourists drooling. It's a warm, welcoming busy place with comforts aplenty in the open-plan, split-level bar and cottagey dining room.
Standard pub grub of the lasagne/toad-in-the-hole school is served in the bar at lunchtime, but it's the full restaurant menu that gets most plaudits. Fish and game specials (pheasant hot pot with Puy lentils, for instance) add variety to a menu that might offer goats' cheese terrine with Jerusalem artichokes, a Derbyshire lamb platter and beef bourguignon with olive oil mash. Round things off with fruit crumble or dark chocolate tart with white chocolate ice cream. The 50-bin wine list has plenty by the glass and an additional 'connoisseur's collection' of heftier vintages.
