Edale itself has two pubs, two cafes and a pop-up Edale Wood-fired Pizza run by our neighbours Mike and Vivienne Wolstenholme. If you are here with a crowd you can contact them directly to see if they might organise a pizza evening for you 01433 670202.
We can arrange breakfast hampers and barbecue boxes ready for your arrival direct from our award-winning local butcher, Watsons in Hope. Most supermarkets deliver to The Gathering so please contact us if you like us to take delivery of an online order for you.
Outside of Edale we recommend…
The Hathersage Social Club
Our favourite local place is the Hathersage Social Club – 10 minutes on the little train from Edale with a 3 minute walk the other end or a 20 minute drive. Open Thursday – Sunday a great place for brunch/lunch in their garden after a swim at the lido or a terrific place for dinner. They do one sitting and often the nights are themed around screenings in their small cinema or inspired event cooking. Check out their event calendar well in advance www. http://hathersagesocialclub.com/
The Cheshire Cheese, Hope
Good solid pub food post a 2 hour walk along Mam Tor and down Losehill to the pub from Edale. Option to take the train back (5 mins) if legs too tired for return journey – local taxi!
The Old Hall and Paper Mill Inn, Chinley
An Elizabethan manor house and adjacent inn. Another great pit-stop after a much longer walk – 4 ½ hours over Kinder and down. Great garden and wide range of beers and food. Jump on the local train back to Edale (less than 10 minutes!).
The Devonshire Arms, Beeley
Gastro-pub food on the Chatsworth Estate. Best to book in advance. The White Lion, Great Longstone.
The White Lion, Great Longstone
Laid-back, stone bar-restaurant serving a changing British menu, classic pub grub and Sunday lunch. Not far from Bakewell and Monsal Gorge.
