The Barrel Inn, Bretton
This pub is a really good find. Situated in the heart of the Peak District National Park - and claiming to be the highest pub in Derbyshire - it is located at Bretton, just on the outskirts of Eyam, which is known for being the location of the outbreak of the Black Death in 1348. However, rest assured you will not catch anything at the Barrell Inn except some fine real ales, quality food and fine vistas from the benches situated directly outside on the edge of Bretton ridge, which over looks the village of Eyam and where you will often find paragliders and hang gliders soaring back and forth. A fantastic place to sit, soak up the sun and views with a pint. Whilst the outside may look a bit weathered, the Barrel Inn is a friendly, welcoming and cosy pub with an inviting open hearth fire and also accepts dogs. With a traditional English country pub look, it offers a choice of fine guest ales such as Old Trip and Moorland Original, along with a great range of malt whiskeys and some of the best pub grub we've tasted and at very reasonable prices. This is one pub we will be programming in to our satnavs, as there's not really any way else to get there.
