Pubs In Little Longstone

Approaching Little Longstone from the west, you can’t fail to notice the area’s famous Monsal Head Hotel as you turn down the minor road to the village.  The view from here looks down into the beautiful Monsal Dale, with the impressive 1863 viaduct which formed that part of the Midland railway once linking Manchester to London.  The line is long gone and today’s visitors passing through the dale can enjoy the stunning scenery at a much gentler pace on what is now the Monsal Trail – an 8.5 mile route for walkers and cyclists.  If the formality of the Hotel is not for you, there is “The Stables Bar” behind it, a charmingly atmospheric place, which  serves a good selection of real ales and various meals and snacks. Nearby is the Packhorse Inn, a favourite with locals and visitors, where you can enjoy fine food and beer. On the road to Baslow, tucked in away from the main road and in glorious countryside is the Robin Hood, which has been serving travellers for many years.

So, whether you are passing through on foot or by car, pause for a while and enjoy the delights to be found in the pubs in Little Longstone.
