Rob Hunter left this review about RedWillow Buxton

Apparently opened in late 2017 in what used to be a branch of the RBS. It is mainly open plan on the ground floor with a the bar along the right hand wall as you enter. To the right of the bar is a small room which I was thinking would probably have been a snug in years gone by, until I remembered it used to be a bank so was then thinking perhaps a small office or meeting room.

I had wanted to visit before but not had the chance when in Buxton previously as it doesn't open until 4pm Monday to Wednesday (Thursday is 3pm, Friday to Sunday is midday). I can't help thinking they are perhaps missing a trick in not opening for the lunch time trade in this busy town popular with tourists. The nearby Buxton Tap House was thriving at lunch time yesterday (Monday) whereas RedWillow Buxton just after 4pm only had a handful of customers.

Anyway at the bar are five cask pumps, three of which had RedWillow ales on, the two guests being by Abbeydale and Bollington at the time of my visit. I had a half of Weightless at £1.70 which I think is pretty reasonable. There are plenty more beers on keg and an electronic beer board is displayed above the bar as the keg taps at the back of the bar did not appear to be labelled.

There is an upstairs area that I did not investigate, but looks like it is a small-ish mezzanine level. Various bits of reading material were available in a rack to the left of the bar including beer related magazines and stuff of local interest.

I am sure some of the wood panelling is original but I suspect some of it is newer and has been added in when the place was converted to a bar. All in all a pleasant place and worth a visit.
