Inn Brief

Following on from this years amazing Three Valleys festival, this bank holiday weekend the Dronfield Arms will be hosting its second annual August bank holiday beer fest, with a bouncy castle and childrens entertainment throughout the day, and live music all evening, along with great food from Proove pizza and amazing ales from Hopjacker.

Stancill Brewery now have a pub to call their brewery tap! The Horse & Jockey at 250 Wadsley Lane, near Hillsborough (on bus routes 57,61 and 62) is now theirs and following a refurbishment has 10 handpumps showcasing their range of cask beers. A discount is currently available for CAMRA members. You can also try the Stancill lager and gin here too! The grand opening party is on 29th July from 4pm and will feature live music and a food stall from Nether Edge Pizza.

The Anchor near Tideswell is now part of Rick Ellison’s group of Peak District pubs, which includes the Old Hall Hotel in Hope and the Peak Inn at Castleton. Those that are a regular at the Old Hall will know Pascal who is moving to the Anchor to manage the pub for Rick. The theme will be ‘rum and steak house’ with as that suggests an extended choice of rums and a food menu that is focused mainly on steaks – however it will otherwise still operate as a cosy country cottage type pub with a selection of real ales.
