Where to dine outside in Hathersage?


Spring is hereĀ and the British battle with the weather commences, as we try to find fleeting moments to enjoy the great outdoors and perhaps the odd moment of al fresco dining!

The very lovely and hard working Steve is mowing the lawn at the Club as this post is being uploaded. Garden chairs and tables have been attentively positioned, new herb beds tended to, fences repainted and outdoor cushions plumped…we are ready for you to enjoy a spot in the sun as you sip one of our lovely G&Ts or tuck into a cheeseboard platter.

We hope you think we’ll have made it into the top 5 of secluded garden retreats to eat and drink in Hathersage…or possibly the Peak District, but just so you know there are some fabulous places in our village to enjoy a sunny spot and a bit of lunch. These are some of our favourites….

– The David Mellor cafe has a wonderfully designed covered area (as you’d expect) in front of their main building, which can be a perfect sun trap.

– The Plough Inn has a brilliant pub garden and little terrace area that we really like to enjoy a great pint and bite to eat.

– At Coleman’s Deli there’s the lovely quadrangle area, with nice outdoor seating to enjoy watching the world go by. Don’t forget Jim’s great Friday night wood fired pizzas that you can takeaway or eat outside with a rather nice bottle of chilled Kingfisher from Maazi’s next door.

Cintra’s has a great hidden away gem of a garden to the back of the tearooms that is well worth a visit.

Let us know if you have any other favourites or recommendations in the Hope Valley and we’ll add them to our list.
