Eating Out


Within easy access is an excellent range of places to eat, from restaurants to pubs to cafes and fine dining.


Within 10 minutes walking distance of The Smithy are the Waterloo Pub in the village of Biggin and Carriages Italian Restaurant ( www.carriagesitalianrestaurant.com ) in Newhaven. A short journey by car will bring you to characterful villages such as Hartington, Alstonefield and Sheen with good pubs serving great food. Many of which focus on serving local produce. The nearby towns of Ashbourne ( www.ashbourne-town.com ) and Buxton ( www.visitbuxton.co.uk ) have individual restaurants, cafes and bistros with differing cuisines.


Fine dining is available for those special occasions Callow Hall, Haddon Hall, Fischers and Riber Hall being good examples, alongside dining pubs such as The Druid Inn at Birchover.


Wherever you choose, the enthusiasm and commitment of locally run and owned businesses shine through at all levels.
