Quick Review: The Greyhound Hotel Restaurant, Peak District Review
The Greyhound Hotel and Pub won the “Best in County” pub and bar awards in 2019 and is seen as one of the best places to eat in its area.
We pulled up at the 18th century Grade II listed Georgian building in the evening and parked in the hotel’s free car park. The building was refurnished in 2017 and had a very warm ambience with its lighting choices, exposed brick sections and wooden furniture.
The best way to describe the decor is traditional with a modern touch. The owners made sure to retain all the exposed beams when possible and located the mix matched furniture themselves.
We ordered a plate of seared scallops (£11.00), 28 day aged 8oz Ribeye with triple cooked chips, roasted beef tomato and mushrooms (£20.00), a Derbyshire Lamb Rump with Jerusalum Artichoke Rissoto and Stuffed Marrow (£18.00) and a Fentimans Ginger Beer (£2.80); our whole meal came to £51.80 with VAT.
Everything tasted great. The scallops were soft and didn’t have that questionable rubbery taste when cooked badly. The risotto was creamy and flavoursome and matched well with the rare lamb rump. I personally enjoyed the juicy fatty parts of the steak, but that might just be me.
It was a delicious meal, if a bit too filling, and we managed to polish all the plates off.
I enjoyed my meal at the The Greyhound Hotel and Bar and can easily recommend it if you are in the area. Affordable by London pricing and generous with portions, you can do much worse than eat here.
