Derbyshire contains so many hidden little villages, and more importantly hidden little pubs!
We seized a sunny day to go for a drive around Derbyshire and find some old gems from our childhood.
Both of us remembered being dragged out on long bicycle rides and walks by our parents, stopping to calm our screaming at the Crewe & Harpur, a beautiful pub sat on the waterfront.
With a lovely, large beer garden there’s no restriction for space, and we grabbed the table closest to the water – but furthest away from the ktichens (sorry waitresses!)
We had a trio of garlic breads to nibble on – normal garlic, cheesy garlic, and cheese and salsa garlic!
A little bowl of nibbles – onion rings, potato wedges and breaded mushrooms
J went for the Ploughman’s Tart Salad
A creamy cheddar cheese sauce with apple and spring onion, encased in a shortcrust pastry, topped with red onion chutney and served on a bed of salad. Phew that was a mouthful.
And for me, the Tomato, Mascarpone and Roasted Veg Risotto which was luvvly.
We concluded with creamy coffees and hopped back in the car to get lost a little more.
