    The White Horse has Great food! The starters are a little bit special and the main courses are very tasty! Nice location, in the middle of beautiful countryside and the house has been tastefully done inside.

    Delightful. We were recommended that we visit The White Horse by the owners of the B&B we were staying at and we are so pleased we took their recommendation. Delicious food and a delightful atmosphere. The staff and owners are lovely and the food is exceptional. Its a shame we live so far away but we do plan on visiting again soon.

    Duck breast was lovely, service efficient and smily chatty waiters made the whole evening a pleasure.

We say…

Situated in the rolling Derbyshire countryside, just five miles East of Matlock and eight miles South of Chesterfield is The White Horse at Woolley Moor.

As you step inside, you are enveloped by a venue that has perfectly mastered the art of mixing contemporary with rustic to create a welcoming and airy bar and restaurant. Featuring several fireplaces, exposed brick and stone work and a quirky brick and tile bar, The White Horse has character and charm by the bucketful. The dining room is separate from the lounge, offering a slightly more formal, yet still relaxed, dining experience. It is a child-friendly venue that benefits from  an outdoor play area for children, allowing the adults to relax and soak up the atmosphere.

The owners are Derbyshire locals who have a passion for local produce, and the team try to only use seasonal ingredients sourced from the Chesterfield area. The Head Chef has created an exquisite menu that will suit even the fussiest of eaters.  You can expect to find a whole host of classic British dishes such as cod in beer batter with chips and crushed peas, Barbary duck breast with dauphinoise potatoes and a redcurrant jus, and crisp belly pork with spring onion mash and a smoked bacon sauce.

The attention to detail is exceptional and the wines have been carefully sourced to match the dishes on offer. The bar is also well stocked with a wide variety of spirits, ciders, lagers and bitters. The showcase real ales are brewed by Peak Ales on the Chatsworth Estate and include Bakewell Best and Chatsworth Gold.

The White Horse at Woolley Moor offers guests the very best of Modern Derbyshire dining; it has the setting, the style and the menu. If you are looking for a homely venue with amenities to suit every family member then The White Horse is for you. It would be perfect for a family get together or a romantic meal before sinking into one of the sofas with a glass of wine and soaking up the beautiful countryside views.
