A Little (Longstone) Gem

A stroll from Bakewell to Little Longstone and back in every kind of weather. Definitely the White Peak today.


Desperate for a pint

Into the Packhorse, loads of folk piling in to food and everyone packed liked happy sardines. We gently steamed in a corner of the bar, me with a pint of Lord Marples and crisps..a Walker’s lunch.

The pub…it’s got the magic ingredients of very good beer and food but what makes a place special is when you’re treated well whatever the spend. No ‘are you dining with us’ here. They don’t need to force folk to eat.

Many thanks to the young woman behind the bar for top service with a smile and friendly chat. Always worth thinking that friendliness to those quickly passing through will bring later rewards.

A top pub well worth its place in the GBG.
