Nearly! Try the Bull's Head, opposite.
My family stopped here for one night last summer and it was fantastic. Proper home cooked food served in generous portions, comfy leather seats in the bar and the view from our bedroom - Mam Tor - was wonderful. Also, as a guest parking was easy and free!
It used to be a right old grot of a pub but no longer. It's been done out beautifully and they kept the open fire. Good food, real ale, pool table, comfy seats, friendly staff and a bed upstairs to pass out on, bliss! Plus, there are the other delights of Castleton (the George, the Castle, the Peak, the Nag's Head).
Only drawback is that you might not be allowed to book a single night at the weekend.
