We ate & drank in here a couple of times during our weekend in Buxton, a warm friendly place & certainly one of the better pubs/bars in the area.

Nice, small cosy bar where you can get tapas. Reasonable prices and good sized portions of the food, and a decent selection of tapas. Decent music too.

Visited Buxton for the Peak District Artisans in The Dome on a lovely sunny day. Called at The Old Courthouse for a quiet drink sat in the sunshine. We found the staff friendly and it was nice and relaxed with good music playing. Will definitely call there again on our next visit to Buxton.

Found this bar tucked away on a back street. First impression of The Old Courrhouse is classy and stylish, with very friendly staff quality drinks, an exelant place to chill out for a while or spend the whole evening in a good atmosphere ...
