The Scotsman's Pack, January 1998

We were a little concerned about finding the pub, but fortunately a helpful lady in a greengrocers shop pointed us in the right direction. It's right up the top end of Hathersage and just before you step into the countryside turn left and it's down there.

A friendly award-winning pub with a welcoming landlord operating from a long bar which serves a large lounge area with a smaller room at the back which serves as extra dining space. They've won awards for their great range of up to five real ales such as Marstons Pedigree these days. Sadly since Wolverhampton and Dudley took over the Burtonwood Brewery the very fine Top Hat bitter that this pub served so well is no longer brewed. Fortunately though the Scotsman's Pack do maintain a fine range of ales to this day..

The food, although I didn't try it, is excellent and served with a smile. I did have a chat with a random bloke who said that the B&B is worth trying and that the fry-up for breakfast will keep you going well into the afternoon! The Bed and Breakfast is rather more expensive than the average pub but the quality of service and accommodation is noticeably higher. One last point, keep an eye out for 'Little John's Chair' which was apparently made for a giant..
