Valley View : Pubs, Restaurants, Food, Drink

We have revisited The George in January 2018.  Meeting the new owner Graham was a delight and we are pleased to say that the pub is welcoming holiday cottage bookings for large groups in either the main pub, the Coach House at the rear or for very large groups the dining room in the picture.  Advance booking especially in spring and summer is a must.  There is great food at The George, Alstonfield and you can walk from Valley View holiday cottage in about 15-20 mins (it is steep on the way up).  Private party room for hire at The George, Alstonefield

Another visit in January 2018 and this pub continues to be one of our favourites in the area.  A very friendly landlord and staff, good standard of pub food and beer.  A traditional bar, which is walker and dog friendly and a cosy lounge with a range of guest beers, open fire and lovely home cooked food with specials.  A smart and modern function room is good for larger groups and there is plenty of space.  They are more than happy to handle group bookings from the holiday cottage. 

Hartington is within walking distance of Valley View holiday cottage and it is a lovely walk north along the River Dove about two hours each way.  Hartington is a lovely village to visit and it has a cheese shop also selling local beers and English wines, with its situation overlooking the duck pond.  There is The Village Stores, which is a shop cum deli with coffee that you can enjoy on their outdoor terrace.  The Village Stores also makes fresh sandwiches to take away so it is a handy point to break a longer walk. There is plenty of parking in the centre of the village if you want to visit by car and stroll around.

Situated 2 miles north of Ashbourne on the main Ashbourne to Buxton Road and approximately 10 minutes by car from Milldale, this pub is well worth a visit.  A refurbished 17th century pub with real ales and good value home cooked bar food.  We would thoroughly recommend a visit and we now recommend this pub for group and family bookings.  If you need help finding a taxi please get in touch and we will help if we can.

This pub is situated just off the Tissington Trail, so it is ideal to combine a traffic free walk or cycle from Valley View holiday cottage.  If you don't want to start right from the holiday cottage there is a parking point on the Tissington Trail about 5-10 mins drive away.  The walk will take about one hour and a half from the Tissington Trail, quicker for fast paced walkers, but with young ones possibly longer.  It is pretty flat most of the way.  Cycling of course is much faster!  

And so to the pub, which is spacious and there is really plenty of space for groups.  Very dog friendly too.  Candles and log fire create a relaxing ambience.  If you prefer to drive there is a huge car park so no problem with parking. 

A good quality menu, in particular the burgers and probably the best cappuccino we have ever had! A great range for vegetarians.  We revisited in January 2018 and enjoyed great food and beers.  A particular favourite were courgette chips and a mushroom, red pepper and feta sandwich.  Good range of drinks and ale including craft beers.  The pub doesn't take bookings but it is pretty large and we've always got a table. 

There is plenty of parking space.

A great pitstop for walkers, located at the bottom of Millway Lane and a 2 minute stroll from Valley View.  The café serves hot drinks, hot snacks, cold drinks, cakes, biscuits, postcards and more.
