Welcome to The Tickled Trout


The  award winning Ticked Trout is a Deliciously Derbyshire gastropub located on the edge of the Peak District. We allow this to influence our menu by trying to use as much fresh local high quality produce as possible. Whether you are wanting a three course meal with fine wines in our restaurant, a selection of small plates in our relaxing lounge or to try a local ale and stone baked pizza in our beer garden. Our menu offers a broad selection for something to suit everybody including Gluten Free, pescatarian, vegetarian and vegan options available.  All allergies can be catered for if booking is made 48 hours in advance.

We believe in using great ingredients from local suppliers who we know and trust, and we believe you’ll taste the difference.

We offer a beautiful restaurant, a cosy lounge, relaxed outdoor seating and a private dining room.  Everyone is welcome.
