Chequers Inn

Froggatt Edge Hope Valley, Derbyshire, S32 3ZJ

Perched on the densely wooded hillside above Carver on the in places precipitous moors road to Sheffield, this handsome 16th-century inn, once four farm workers' houses, is brimming with character. Inside is polished wood floors, exposed stone walls, gleaming oak furniture and cottagey textiles and prints.  The food is wholesome, well-priced and beautifully presented. Expect the likes of thick-cut home cooked ham with duck egg, fat chips and tomato chutney, Paul Bowyer's pork and cracked black pepper sausages with creamy mash with rich gravy and Chequers chutney, or my very favorite homemade pie, served with creamy mash, mushy peas and lashings of Henderson’s Relish. Sandwiches are of the doorstep variety and well-kept local hand-pulled beer includes Farmer's Blonde from the Bradfield Brewery and Bakewell Brewery Bitter.  Outside, a terraced garden at the back is a great place for a pint and the paper, or the starting-off point for a fabulous walk up to Froggatt Edge – from where, on a clear day you can see for miles and miles. If you fancy a mug of tea after your walk, head for the iconic café at Grindleford Station just down the valley.
