There are lots of great pubs and independent brewers around Derbyshire.
The Miners Arms, Carsington is less than 5 minutes walk from the cottages. A family run free house offering a great menu and a range of ales.
A Hopton favourite is The Red Lion at Hognaston serving good food and beers.
Wirksworth, just down the hill, is home to a multitude of pubs, including The Royal Oak and the Hope & Anchor.
We’re also fond of a walk over the hill to The Gate at Brassington.
… and then of course there are lots of beer festivals! Cheers!
