Visit Britain 4 Stars Inn

The Old Hall Inn & The Paper Mill Inn are quintessential country inn's offering a famously warm welcome, with a strong local trade all year round making for a great lively atmosphere any time of the year. The Old Hall has been voted Derbyshire Pub of the Year 2010 and 2011 and have won the Great British Pub Awards for ‘Best Cask Pub in the East Midlands' for the last three years running, have gone in to the Good Pub Guide for 2011 & 2012 and been award numerous accolades for our commitment to using Peak District produce in our restaurant. The Saturday Times placed the Old Hall at number 7 in the weekend pull out '30 great pubs for summer' as selected by Alastair Sawday.

Its busy restaurant & ale trade spills into the adjacent Elizabethan Minstrels Gallery making the Old Hall a truly unique place to stay. The menu changes daily as our chefs prepare from fresh every day, using local produce from the best suppliers and farms. Our menu is kept small, but gives a choice of traditional pub food along with more gourmet choices if you fancy something special. Its fresh, simple, great value and we hope you’ll agree, delicious.

Your Steak & Kidney Puddings are things dreams are made of!

The Paper Mill Inn has recently been acquired by the owners of the Old Hall Inn and undergone a full and extensive refurbishment, offering a further 4 en-suite rooms. The Paper Mill Inn is located just across the road from the Hall, and breakfast is served in the Minstrels Gallery with all our other guests. The Paper Mill Bar is open in the evenings and all day at weekends, and offers more ales, more world beers and live sports, in a cosy bar with open fires, flag floors and a warm welcome.

We hope to welcome you soon...
