The George

Alstonefield Near Ashbourne Derbyshire DE6 2FX

You’re disposed to liking this place as soon as you clap eyes on it; the approach to the village is delightful, like a 1950s biscuit tin picture. The pub sits on the edge of the green, a handsome, mellow stone building with a garden to sit in on good days. Inside, a fire crackles in the grate, the polished tiled floors gleam and old oak tables beckon. The food is bang up-to-date though, with the likes of Rosary goat's cheese beignet, sautéed wild mushrooms & nettle velouté, gnocchi with roast vine tomatoes, heritage beetroot & herb oil – and, for afters, Earl Grey panna cotta, mini scones & berry compote. With the warmest welcome from landlady Emily, and beer on song, the pervading sense is that you’re in the hands of people who know what they’re doing. Stunning Dovedale and Milldale are just down the road; you'll kick yourself if you don't take a walk after lunch.
