The George is an unspoilt, award winning family run pub in the Peak District village of Alstonefield, above Dovedale and a stones throw from Mill Dale within the Peak National Park.
Join us to enjoy our well kept real ales, carefully selected wine list and exceptional food; a standard recognised in The Good Food Guide since 2009; Michelin and Sawdays – to name but a few.
As you walk into neat rooms of old beams, gleaming quarry tiles, a crackling log fire, you will know you’re in safe hands. It’s an unhurried place, where everyone knows everyone else (or soon will). Summer sees ramblers cram the benches out front, along with the village cricket team and time passes slowly. Come winter, a cosy space for muddy boots and big tables awaits in our coach house.
The dining room and snug have been restored to their original simplicity with lime plastered walls and farmhouse furniture. Candlelight and fresh flowers add a touch of elegance.
A green sward ripples in this remote limestone village, perched on a plateau between the gorges of the rivers Dove and Manifold in the Peak District
“ONE SIP FROM HEAVEN”
“It has rhubarb bellinis instead of brown ale, and home-roasted almonds rather than pork scratchings. But don’t be misled: the George has not lost touch with its roots. This 400-year-old coach house, has retained the lime-washed walls and photos of lugubrious locals, adding only fresh flowers, church candles and a mighty fine steak and stilton pie. Out front, you’ll find picnic sets right by the village green. The views hereabouts are straight from the I-spy book of the English countryside: tottering haystacks, tree-dappled meadows and (rather more surprisingly) Alstonefield’s resident T rex. Expect to share a table with hikers and horsewomen – it’s a short trot from here across dung-scented cow pasture to Dovedale, the prettiest valley in the peak district.”
