Dronfield & District – Winter Pub of the Season: Dronfield Arms


The Dronfield Arms on Chesterfield Road, Dronfield has been voted Dronfield & District CAMRA winter pub of the season.

Formerly the Old Sidings, this pub in the centre of Dronfield reopened as a free house in 2011 and has become a popular local favourite. In October 2015 the Dronfield Arms opened their own micro brewery, called HopJacker, who are making waves with their modern, hop-forward ales.  Visitors to the Dronfield Arms can watch pub manager and brewer Edd Entwistle brewing in the cellar through a section of glass flooring.

In addition to a strong cask ale range, the Dronfield Arms also has bar snacks and a very good outdoor area.
