The Derwentwater Arms is a traditional country pub tucked away in the Peak District village of Calver. It exudes community spirit, dates back to 1708, and serves fantastic food and drink.
The décor is pleasingly traditional: classic wooden tables, brass pub hangings, vintage board games, chalkboard menus and local photography. Drinks include local ales, carefully selected wines and spirits, soft drinks and winter warmers.
You have to negotiate steep steps to get to the pub and once inside you’ll find three separate seating areas. Go for one of the tables next to the large windows overlooking the village and Peak District hills. Or maybe you’d prefer one of the outside benches.
The food options are mouthwatering: traditional pub grub done exceptionally well, with themed food nights and fantastic homemade pork pies from their very own ‘Big Pie Company’.
The Derwentwater Arms is simply a great local British pub!
