Review on Druid Inn

Nestling beneath the extraordinary matrix of fissures, passageways and rocking stones known as Row Tor, this famous inn takes it name from the eighteenth-century obsession with druids and the belief the area was an original mystic habitation. These days it's a highly popular destination for walkers and sightseers on the Peak District trail.

There have been changes of late, and the pub has had new management since January 2011. Food is top of the agenda, and visitors can choose to eat in the bar, the snug or in the separate dining room overlooking the valley. One menu is served throughout, and choice is extensive.

Carefully sourced regional ingredients are at the heart of things and the kitchen aims to please all-comers. 'Derbyshire tradition - contemporary style' is the message, which translates into dishes such as terrine of ham hock, black pudding and Hartington Stilton with piccalilli, steak kidney and potato pie with Druid Ale or wild mushroom risotto with goats' cheese. Fish also shows up well (baked monkfish with chorizo and butterbean stew) and desserts could range from rice pudding with gingerbread ice cream to strawberry semifreddo with strawberry jelly. The international wine list offers a very decent selection by the glass.
