Not to be confused with the other Cheshire Cheese in Hope! Comfortable and friendly pub on the eastern end of Castleton, very handy for our camp site. Seemingly quite busy at most times of the day, the food is good and hearty and the beer well kept. We will definitely revisit next time we are in this area.

Fine coaching inn pub well within the boundaries of the Peak District National Park. Located in the small but welcoming village of Castleton this pub has both a welcoming and attractive appearance. Inside it is cosy with its low ceiling, warm soft furnished decor and relaxed atmosphere. It operates two different sides but as food is big here one of them is more geared towards eating, but you can dine anywhere. Dogs are allowed too so you can bring your best friend with you. Ales are important here too and expect a local selection if this is your tipple.

Stopped by for one last cask ale (or was it TWO?!) our last night in beautiful Castleton, and wish we’d have given it a shot the nights before as well. From the outside it looked potentially, well... cheesy, but on the inside it was nice. I believe we were there on a Sunday or Monday night after all the weekend crowds had departed, and we had the place practically to ourselves. The barkeep was quite cool, and let us try samples of several of their nice range of real/cask ales before we selected ones to our tastes. Oh for an Olde Cheshire Sheese Inn here in the Baltimore, Maryland area!

A nice-looking old pub at the bottom end of the village. Serves 4 rotating guest beers from local micros served (astonishingly for Britain) in the correct branded glasses. The left bar is more pubby, and the right more restaurant-y, but the distinction is more notional than real and you seemed to be able to eat or just have a beer in either. It always seems bustling yet laid-back, and the service is efficient yet friendly. Food is large portions of good old British traditional fare (I had minted lamb hotpot in a giant Yorkshire pudding, my friends had enormous and tender steaks, whilst other diners seemed very keen on the Innkeeper’s Pie). The quiz-and-bongo host on a Sunday night was hilarious, and in a very tourist-y village this seems to have the right balance between catering for tourists and providing a community centre for locals. It definitely seemed to be the best pub in Castleton while we were there (although I can also recommend the Castle and the Boars Head).
