Welcome to The Shoulder of Mutton!


The Shoulder of Mutton is a village pub and kitchen with four delightful bedrooms, situated in the heart of the beautiful Peak District.

Boasting a Trip Advisor Hall of Fame entry for five consecutive years of "Certificate of Excellence" awards, it is little wonder that guests return time and again.  Two of the bedrooms are "Dog friendly" as is the bar area and walkers and cyclists enjoy friendly banter with local customers after a day in the hills around Ladybower Reservoir or Mam Tor.

There is ample private parking and we are on the main bus routes to  Buxton (Spa Town),  Sheffield (for Meadowhall),  Bakewell  (for Chatsworth House or a tasty Bakewell Pudding),  and Castleton, home of the beautiful Blue John Mine and Speedwell, Treak Cliffe and Peak Caverns.

With log fires, a good selection of cask ales,  award winning John Hattersley wines and great home cooked food, this is a popular family venue, showing  BT Sports and Sky Sports.   It has a games room with pool and darts and  quiz night with bingo is held every Sunday night.

A delightful sunny terrace for the warmer days, overlooks the local park where a children's play area is easily accessible.
