Description: The Packhorse Inn is a quirky little pub with only 5 tables serving the best local produce we can find. We specialize in meat and game but we also offer tapas, sandwiches, bar snacks, sharing platters, specials and vegetarian options. We change the menus on a monthly basis and the specials daily, making sure we use fresh, seasonal ingredients. The bar serves a selection of 5 cask ales, mostly from the local Thornbridge Brewery, as well as a full range wines, lagers, ciders, spirits and soft drinks. During winter time we have three roaring fires and the garden provides extra seating in the summer. Formely two miners cottages, the Packhorse has been a watering hole for travellers on the packhorse routes since 1787. We are very proud that we are still an old fashion pub which is quite hard to do these days! There is parking on the road and booking is essential as we can only fit 24 people in at one time! Takeaway food & drinks now available for collection

This pub, is a 15 minute walk from Great Longstone, situated on a busy (ish) road, within real pavement/ embankment to walk on (so be careful)

It is a very traditional looking pub, and was bustling when we arrived around 6pm on a Friday in early July, although they were busy the head waitress managed to squeeze us in (they gave us a place in the beer garden at the back

I had the pork belly with mustard mash £15, and my partner and son, had the sausages and mash £12, the portions of all the food were above average and the taste was exceptional.

My partner had ice cream for pudding, my son had the sticky toffee pudding with cream, and I had Bakewell tart and ice cream (£6 for the puddings and £1 for the ice cream) again very tasty.

Dad’s try the the Brother Rabbit IPA £3:95

Altogether very impressive no wonder this pub, consistently gets high ratings on Tripadvisor

Lovely lunch in the garden with friends. We loved the calamari and rosè and Liam’s service was amazing! Very pleased we chose to have our ladies luncheon here.

This charming pub in picturesque quiet location is cosy and welcoming. Outside tables on the road and a garden to the rear. The food is well prepared and presentation very good. Well worth visiting.

Eaten there twice this week. Four of us covered the breadth of the menu and everything was fantastic. Had a booking mix up the second time and the staff and landlord couldn’t have been more helpful in making room for us and giving us complimentary drinks. Again wonderful food. Staff were attentive without being pushy. A great place, highly recommend.
