/ Peak District pub food
The Grouse. Best steak pie ever, great pub, not posh.
Or if you want cheap but crap, Robin Hood in Hathersage.

I dunno, I thought the mixed grill was outstanding.
There is a really good ongoing pub thread if you search on the other channel.

Just been done up a bit too... went the other day & sat in my seat by the fire... I didn't want to move as usual it were great... as soon as we made to leave we were pounced upon by some locals desperate to sit by the open fire with their steak pie -
its got a couple of good beers on pump at the mo as well - just mind that food stops at 3pm on Saturday and chef is back at 6:30pm.
Sunday food is all day...
Thanks Simon that's really useful
I had a lovely meal in The Cheshire Cheese at Hope and the fox-house was "Ok" without being amazing but still nice enough.
FWIW I think the food at the Millstone just out of Hathersage is way better than anything I've had at Scotsman's Pack or the dreadful Little John.
3663 - if you know what I mean.
seconded, great pies ...
> the dreadful Little John.
How dare you! How very dare you! It might not be the best quality but the portion size/cost ratio is outstanding. I'm yet to finish the mixed grill, and I'm a big fat fatty.
That's exactly what I meant.

Posh though, innit?
And furthermore, their steak pie is of the type with the little pot with pastry top. Grouse's pie kicks the arse off it.
> the type with the little pot with pastry top
The technical term for this is "not a bloody pie"!
It's not posh. It's smart. And this has not made it expensive. £10 for a good main. OK you might pay £6.80 for a greater quantity of food in the Little John but a) it'll be more food than you want to eat and b) it'll be poor food.
Depending what route you take back to Sheffield the Norfolk Arms at Ringinglow has nice beer and nice food at a reasonable price
Bridge Inn Curbar, it finally has new management, a lad from the village now runs it. Trying to make it a proper pub and doing a great job. It is a nice antithesis to the gastro style pubs appearing all over the peak. Got a good pie in there for something like £7. Not seen those prices in the peak in years.
I've always found the staff really friendly as well - granted it's not really within walking/staggering distance of a campsite.
The Devonshire Arms does have an unusually good selection of beer, for a restaurant.
Didn't read that in time, but sounds just the ticket. Drove straight past the place too.
Went to the Grouse in the end, really good, thanks all
