We say…

The Ashford Arms is situated right at the heart of Derbyshire’s Peak District, just a short drive from the historic and popular village of Bakewell. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, it’s a lovely place to spend your Sunday relaxing with family.  Right on the River Wye, this peaceful venue is the perfect escape from city life, whether you travel from a neighbouring town or make the trip from Derby or Sheffield. In such a beautiful location, it’s well worth the extra travel for a true country pub.

This charming village inn dates back to the Napoleonic times and oozes history. From the outside, it appears to be a traditional pub, but once inside it feels like much more. With exposed brick walls and candle-lit tables, The Ashford Arms is an escape from the present. Glorious fireplaces are lovely if you want to warm up in the winter. Classic dark wood dining tables create an authentic ambience that’s comforting and welcoming. This venue is a lovely choice for either a family lunch or an intimate meal for two in the evening.

The selection of menus offered at The Ashford Arms is sure to impress, with a classic a la carte filled with firm favourites, an early bird menu that’s great if you’re on a budget and informal bar menus, great if you’re here for a catch up with friends. Start your meal with creamy Garlic Mushrooms that are full of flavour or opt for the fresh Smoked Salmon with a mixed salad, refreshing and great if you want something lighter. Main courses are enticing and varied, with plenty of vegetarian options, including Vegetable Crepes stuffed with broccoli and spinach in a rich, creamy sauce. For something out of the ordinary, order a sizzling platter, served on hot iron skillets and filled with flavoursome meat. Try the Rack of Pork Ribs served in a tangy barbecue sauce if you fancy something meaty. The menu at The Ashford Arms lends itself to a variety of tastes, making this an ideal place to bring a group.

Spend the day exploring the Peak District before heading for some luxury food at The Ashford Arms in Bakewell, Derbyshire. You’ll find yourself greeted by a sophisticated ambience and extensive menu.
