Greene King (surprisingly) next to the Cathedral. Offers accommodation and was my room for the night.

Staff are lovely.

Seemed popular with the locals - various tradesmen commandeering the bar area.

Beers were not the usual greene king. The TT Landlord was off and I remember a Tetley's Cask was on but I had a birra moretti.

The previous review reads more like an advertisement...
The George is superbly situated right next door to the “cathedral of the Peak” in the lovely village or small town of Tideswell. When I visited there were a few locals dotted about the bar reading their newspapers. No conversation was possible because of the loud rock music being played. The dining room around the corner was very smart (check out the stone fireplace) and far enough away from the loudspeakers to be tolerable. Well kept beers from the Greene King range. Handy for buses to/from Buxton, Bakewell, Sheffield, Chesterfield and the Hope Valley.

Lovely friendly family pub. Mine hosts Ros and Dave Finch make you feel right at home. First class food served and families made very welcome. Wonderful garden area for outside drinking on those sunny days and evenings.Delightful part of the Peak District accessible to many tourist spots.4 letting rooms available in this hostelry. Function room for that special occasion.Real Ales also sold.
A paradise for Walkers, Ramblers and Cyclists.
A 18th century coaching inn in a quiet village conveniently placed for exploring the National Park and visiting Buxton, Chatsworth and the historic plague village of Eyam. Quality home-cooked food
