Just over a week ago, courtesy of my aunt winning a competition, we came here; The Bluebell at Tissington. (Though, actually, at Tissington is a slight misnomer. 'On the main road a short distance from Tissington' would be more accurate.)
I hadn't been to this particular pub for ages. In fact, I think the last time I had been here was for my cousin's wedding reception and that is going back a long time!
I've driven past it many many times though; travelling between Derby and Buxton, Derby and Manchester... It's a lovely building; limestone and solid and so nicely proportioned.
It has a small seating area round the side and a larger beer garden, complete with smoker's gazebo.
Inside, the surroundings were very pleasant and the service was good. The food, however, was a bit ordinary, which was disappointing for the price. There wasn't anything wrong with it. It just wasn't really anything special. However, as we weren't paying...
It made an interesting change.
