Right then, here goes and I'll start with Hathersage.
The Millstone - recently been bought by a new owner and a bit in transition. Beer good and food ok but nothing exceptional.
The Scotsman's Pack - highly recommended. Excellent beer and food, a nice boozer with a good atmosphere. Occasional live music nights, which seem popular.
The Little John - hmm, this is actually my local as my mates drink there but that's the only reason (apart from the Sky Sports). The beer can be good but is far too inconsistent as they change it all the time so you never know what will be on and it's usually from some obscure brewery I've never heard of. Food is plentiful but basic pub grub although GVFM.
The Plough - a lovely country inn although mainly a restaurant and not somewhere to pop in for a pint. The food can be superb but also occasionally not so good, and at the prices they charge it can be very disappointing.
The George Hotel - upmarket hotel supposed to be good although I've not been for years.
Hathersage Social Club - a real gem only open from Thursday to Sunday after lunch. Every Friday and Sat night is a themed menu where you order your choices in advance. It's only a very small place that can accommodate approx 30 covers maximum but the food is excellent as is the vibe and atmosphere as the owner Lucy is completely bonkers, but in a good way!!
Maazi - upmarket curry house - bloody fantastic!!!
Sangams - run of the mill traditional curry house which has been in the village for donkey's years. Sometimes very good, sometimes terrible - going through a bad patch at the moment in my opinion, although to be fair I've only had takeaways recently and not a sit down. Many locals remain faithful to this place so it can't be that bad!
Cafes and Deli's.
Colemans Deli - excellent with a wide range of products to eat in or takeaway. Gets very busy in the summer and is only small so getting a seat is difficult. Quite expensive but you get what you pay for.
Cintras - small cafe next to the George. Never been so can't comment.
Swimming Pool Cafe - again never been but supposed to be good and they do Fish n Chips on a Friday eve.
There is an excellent butcher in the village, Paul Bowyer - had to mention this as they are Blades
Think that covers Hathersage, will do Hope next
