District Pub of the Season Autumn 2016

Our members have been voting through the autumn for our latest District Pub of the Season and we are pleased to announce the winner as the Packhorse at Little Longstone.

This award is for pubs in the Derbyshire part of our branch area and is designed to raise the profile with real ale drinkers of those pubs that are beyond the city limits, often in rural areas such as the Peak District.

The Packhorse is a cosy village pub with small rooms, a roaring fire in winter, a beer garden for the summer months, friendly staff, good fresh food and of course well kept ales, usually from Thornbridge Brewery.

We’re running a minibus trip on Saturday 25th February and will be calling in the Pack Horse to present their winners certificate and enjoy a beer, this will be combined with a visit to Thornbridge Brewery in Bakewell for a tour where there will be a bar open selling beer and pies! If you want to join us on the minibus, please book your seat via our social secretaries, it costs just £5 per person for the travel for members.
